How to Travel to The Maldives on a Budget

It's 2022 and do you still believe that travelling to The Maldives on a budget is a myth?

This blog post will prove to you that a trip to The Maldives can actually be as low-cost as you want it to be, and that's what we're here to help you with!

At Maldives Secrets, we have experienced both the luxury of 5* Resorts, to the humble, local islands that are full of authenticity, life, beauty and culture. We absolutely love both experiences, for different reasons and we can’t wait to share more of this with you.

By the way, you can check out our YouTube videos here, where we have Dhivehi lessons but also some island travel guides.

So... What are the secrets to a budget holiday in The Maldives?


The biggest secret is to simply stay on local islands during your holiday. Don’t get us wrong, there is also an abundance of affordable Resorts, but local islands in The Maldives provide the cheapest and most cost-efficient holidays.

The best part is that you get the same powdery white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters as Resort island and the excursions and activities are usually the same - so you get to experience the same amount of fun but for cheaper! Check out our budget local island packages here.
