Is It Possible To Travel The Maldives On A Budget?
The Maldives has established a reputation as a luxury holiday destination. However, in recent years, travelers on tighter budgets have been welcomed as well.
Since the first tourists arrived on its immaculate coral sand shores in the late 1970s, the country has built an image as an exclusive collection of private islands affordable only to certain people. It was not until 2008, when the Maldives’ first democratically elected government eliminated the laws requiring all foreign visitors to stay in resorts, that budget travel became genuinely possible.
This change allowed licensed locals to open their own guesthouses on so-called “local islands” – atolls where Maldivians live, as opposed to the self-contained resorts, each effectively a private island that exists in almost total isolation from day-to-day life in the country. Here are some simple tips for keeping your costs down in a destination with a well-earned reputation for luxury;
- Visit during the off-peak season (which begins May and mid October)
- Look for deals on flights and accommodation well in advance to secure lower prices
- Stay on local islands instead of expensive private islands
- Eat at local restaurant and avoid high end resorts
- Utilize public ferries and local transport options instead of speed boats which can be costly.
- Try to pack everything you’ll need during your stay to avoid inflated prices in Maldives
- Stay in a guesthouse rather than a resort
Is It easy to get a visa for Maldives?
Yes, Travelers of all nationalities can get a Maldives tourist visa upon arrival in the country. And the Maldives immigration authorities don’t put many hurdles in the way of tourists arriving in the country. Single-entry tourist visas valid for 30 days are granted to visitors from every country in the world upon arrival. There is no visa fee for Maldives immigration; you’ll only need to meet a few not-too-onerous conditions below:
- You’ll need a machine-readable passport valid for at least one month beyond the date of arrival
- You will need proof of booked accommodation, plus tickets for onward air travel
- You will need evidence of sufficient funds for the duration of your trip (US$100 plus US$50 per day of your stay should suffice).
- In practice, proof of funds is rarely checked for those with a resort booking. But be prepared for immigration officers to ask to see cash or a bank statement.
- You’ll also need to fill in a Traveler Health Declaration form no more than 24 hours before departing for Maldives. The form can be submitted, via the government’s Imuga portal.
Note: Tourist visas are strictly for tourism. If you’re found to be working in Maldives, or overstay the 30-day limit without prior permission, you can be fined and deported.

However, this capital of Maldives is a must inclusion in the Maldives holiday packages. It is famous as the King’s Island as it used to serve as the abode of the Royal kings. Its bustling atmosphere, cultural spots, and high-end accommodation options make it a perfect place to be during your holiday in Maldives.

It is a classic experience for honeymooners, but even if you are not celebrating recent marriage, you may find you get caught up in the romance of the moment when you spot a playful pod of spinner dolphins surrounding your boat. These adorable creatures are plentiful in Maldivian waters and will often pursue boats, corkscrewing out of the water seemingly just for the fun of it.
5. Sample Maldivian cuisine
The Maldives may have fairly gained a reputation for idyllic escapes, but its culinary landscape is also making waves with travellers. Seasonality is a given, and flavours and inspiration have been plucked from India, Sri Lanka and eastern Asia, the result of ancient trade routes between the Maldives and its neighbors.

Parasailing is a water activity wherein a person is attached to a specially designed parachute which in turn is attached to a vehicle (usually a boat or a truck). As the vehicle moves it tows the parachute causing the person to glide high in the air.
