Maldives Packing List: 5 Essentials for a Perfect Maldives Vacation - A worry-free, blissful getaway

A getaway to the Indian Ocean islands of Maldives is bound to be outright blissful. But packing the right things for the Maldives can make or break your blissful getaway. Here's a round-up of the essentials for your Maldives trip and help to avoid that horrible staring contest with your suitcase.


Suitcase or backpack? - choose your ideal travel companion

Figuring out what to pack your stuff in is as important as choosing what to pack for the Maldives. Travellers are often left with two baggage options to choose between — backpack or suitcase — and more often than not, it is the backpack that makes for your ideal travel companion, and it is no less true for the island nation of Maldives. Lugging a bulky suitcase all throughout the airport and wrestling it onto and off ferries to your resort island is the last thing you'd want on your island getaway.


Lightweight summer clothes - comfy, low-key and modest

The golden rule for packing for holidays — do not pack your entire wardrobe — is one that should be certainly kept in mind when packing for the Maldives as well. The Indian Ocean island nation is pretty easy-going with clothing and doesn't call for a need to be fancy whatsoever, unless, of course, you absolutely do fancy rocking your fancy dress on your tropical getaway. Setting personal clothing preferences aside, 3 to 4 pieces of t-shirts and shorts, 2 pairs of pants and a skirt for the ladies, should be fine for any average Maldives vacation.


A couple of different footwear - the right shoe for the right occasion

If that little catchline got you thinking that the Maldives is not as easy-going as they are with clothing, please accept my apologies for the miscommunication. Flip flops rule the Maldives so much so that you will be in flip flops most if not all the time, but it is not entirely advisable for them to be your only choice of footwear for the Maldives. It is likely that you'll have a few adventure activities and fine dining on your island getaway, so packing a pair of hiking shoes and a pair of decent shoes or other footwear for outings is recommended, hence the catchline, "the right shoe for the right occasion".


Tropical destination essentials - must-haves for a blissful tropical getaway

There's a rather established set of essentials for all tropical destinations on planet earth that could make or break tropical getaways and the same applies to your upcoming trip to the Maldives as well. Swimwear, a pair of sunglasses, a sun hat and enough sunscreen should be high on your packing list as it is likely that the white sandy shores of the Maldives will have a lot to do on your island getaway. Another thing you absolutely cannot afford to forget is mosquito repellent — a must-have for a good night's sleep in the Maldives.


A universal travel adapter - a real vacation lifesaver

No matter if you are staying at the most luxurious beach pool villa in Maldives or a property such as The Residence Maldives, carrying a universal travel adapter could never hurt. Imagine checking in to your hotel room only to find wall sockets that are incompatible with your devices.
