Is Maldives safe?
Crime rates are very low in the country and there is very little reason to feel unsafe while you travel in Maldives. Unlike other destinations, most visitors generally stay in the resorts that are spread across various islands, connected to each other only by water. Therefore, there are few opportunities for criminal activity.
Being an Islamic country, social ills like alcohol and drug dependence are low in the Maldives. Also, given that tourism is such a major economic factor, the image of the islands being a safe paradise is well preserved.

Safety Tips for Your Maldives Vacation
While visiting religious sites, it is important to dress appropriately in deference to local traditions. Always ensure that your knees and shoulders are covered.
Stay on the Main Streets of Male
Take the usual precautions with your belongings and valuable items and you are unlikely to encounter any potential security issues. The only place where there really exists any such possibility is in Male at night. Even then, being street-smart by staying in well-lit areas should be enough to avoid trouble.
Exercise Caution While Swimming
Never go swimming unattended and especially avoid the water when the red flag is hoisted on the beach.

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
All the little touches made by our Enchanting Travel consultant, Amelia Edwards, were noticed and recognized by my wife and I. Thank you for making our milestone trip (25th wedding anniversary) such a memorable one! We look forward to engaging Enchanting Travels again for our next South American adventure!!
This was my first adventure as a solo traveler. But while I may have traveled on my own, I was never alone. I was well taken care of by a superb team of planners, trip coordinators, guides and drivers.
