Being a Muslim country where the Shariah Law applies, you are not allowed to bring in alcohol in The Maldives, bringing in alcohol to The Maldives is illegal. If you land in The Maldives with alcohol bought at the Duty-Free on your outward flight, you will be subjected to further questioning and checks by the local customs, the alcohol will also be confiscated and will not be returned upon departure.

Having said that, The Maldives isn’t completely alcohol-free. You will be able to find alcohol on the resort islands. You will not find it on local islands or in the capital city of Malé. Best yet, you can even have unlimited booze if you opt for an all-inclusive package to The Maldives so you might find little to no reason for trying to sneak in bottles.

The same applies to taking alcohol out of The Maldives – the moment you try to take alcohol out of the resort island, you’re basically breaking the law so just don’t do it.

Price of alcohol in The Maldives – Is alcohol cheap in The Maldives?

If you are not on an all-inclusive package in The Maldives, you will need to pay for ordering alcohol. After all, we can’t blame you – cocktails by the beach is always a good idea! Now, you might be wondering, what will it cost to order alcoholic drinks on a resort island in The Maldives? Is alcohol expensive in The Maldives?

Truth is, alcohol can be pricey in The Maldives. More so when you’re staying at a luxury resort in The Maldives. Of course, the price of alcohol in The Maldives will depend from one hotel to another but to give you an idea of the range, you could be paying between GBP 7-9 for a beer and GBP 12-18 for a cocktail.
