    Be aware that the Maldives are a 100% muslim country. Any religious items that do not pertain to the muslim faith will be confiscated at the airport. You are prohibited from bringing alcohol or pornography into the Maldives (this may include magazines that show partial nudity but aren't necessarily classed as pornography).

    You can be fined if you take any shells or coral from the islands. I collected shells, arranged them on the sand and photograghed them. I then returned the shells to the ocean or left them on the beach where I found them.

    Be aware that topless sunbathing is not permitted either.

    Cover up when with the locals

    by Martinwhipp Written Nov 12, 2003

    Just a small thing, but important if you are intending to visit some fo the local inhabited islands.

    Women must cover up their Shoulders and Knees.

    Minor, I know - but it could stop you from having to buy a sarong on the island!
