When it comes to compiling your Maldives packing list, bear in mind that these islands in the Indian ocean have a wonderful warm climate all-year-round. This means when it comes to a Maldives packing guide, there will be an emphasis on relaxing clothing in natural fibres that will help you feel cool and comfortable wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.

Maldives packing tips

If you’re looking for a theme to organise your Maldives packing checklist around, it’s probably chic and casual. There’ll be no need for tailored suits and high heels here. However, some restaurants and upmarket resorts may have dress codes for some of their more glamorous bars and restaurants at night. A smart casual wardrobe should cover most occasions with maxi dresses for women and chinos for men in the evening. Well-made shirts in quality cotton that can be dressed up with accessories will be versatile and always look good.

During the day a lot of activities will revolve around being on boats or beaches or by the pool, so make sure you have a swimsuit that fits well. Choose sarongs, kaftans or roomy shirts which can be thrown over bathing costumes for quick transitions to other activities. The sun can be strong, so a hat is recommended during the day, along with suitable sun cream. Be aware that wet clothing can increase the risk of being sunburnt as it offers much less protection against UV radiation. If you’re out in the sun, you may need to apply sunscreen even if you have a cotton shirt or t-shirt on top.

Protecting your eyes is also a good idea and a pair of quality sunglasses is worth investing in. Unhappy feet can ruin a holiday, so make sure you think about footwear that is suitable for hot, possibly damp, tropical conditions. Feet can swell in the heat, so while the Maldives is the sort of place you may not need to wear shoes at all, if you do, make sure they are forgiving to sensitive skin. A pair of flip flops is obviously worthwhile for quick strolls around the beach or pool.

If you want to explore some of the Maldives nature trails or dunes on foot, then you will need your walking shoes. Hats, good sunglasses and lightweight trousers and shirts will help you feel more comfortable when the temperatures rise.
