5 Essentials for a Perfect Maldives Vacation - Must-haves for some worry-free time away in the tropical island paradise

Planning to go on a beachside getaway to the Maldives? What goes into your backpack can make or break your vacation in the idyllic archipelagic nation. Load up on these Maldives packing tips to avoid that long staring contest with your backpack and for some worry-free time away in the epic islands.


Backpack vs Suitcase

Who is your ideal travel partner to the South Asian islands?
Before you go on to choose what you pack for the Maldives, it is pivotal that you decide between a backpack or suitcase to do your packing. Getting your luggage right is as important as choosing the right holiday clothing. Backpack or suitcase? That is the million-dollar question when it comes to packing for any getaway and the South Asian island nation is no different. Anyone who's been to the Maldives wouldn't take long to comprehend that a backpack is the most convenient and ideal choice, especially given those shuttles to and from your resort island.


Clothing - Low-key and lightweight rule

If there's only one thing that you should keep in mind when packing for the Maldives, that would be not to take your entire wardrobe with you. The stunning archipelagic nation is pretty easy-going with clothing – that fancy dress of yours is totally unnecessary, unless of course you absolutely need it, making the theme for your packing, low-key and lightweight. Throw in a couple of shirts, t-shirts, shorts, pants and a skirt for the ladies and you should be fine. However, if you have any trips outside your resort island to local communities on your itinerary, a bunch of decent, ideally a tad conservative clothing that covers up your shoulders and knees is essential.


Footwear - Clothes for your feet

You'd be, without a doubt, spending most of your time on the islands in flip-flops, making a pair a must-have in your backpack. If you have some adventuring on your holiday programme – for instance, something like island-hopping, which is quite popular among many tourists to the islands –
throw in a pair of hiking shoes as well. A decent pair of sandals could also come in handy, especially for after-dark events, which are anything but glitzy.


Beach Essentials - Your gear for a slice of sun, sand, and sea

There's no vacation in the Maldives without a swimsuit in your backpack, as you would be spending most of your holidays on pristine white sand. Along with the swimsuit needs to come a pair of sunglasses, enough sunscreen, and a broad-brim sun hat for the ladies.


Miscellaneous - Vacation lifesavers

As with any other tropical destination, mosquito repellent can undoubtedly affect your Maldives experience. It is crucial that you carry enough mosquito repellent with you unless you want to spend your nights swatting mosquitoes. Another thing that you should not definitely forget is a universal travel adapter, even if you are staying at one of the finest hotels or resorts such as Saii Lagoon Maldives.
