Maldives - Safety
Crime levels are low in Maldives but petty theft does occur. It is best not to leave goods unattended on the beaches or in hotel rooms. There is a measure of political instability and visitors are advised to avoid gatherings and demonstrations, particularly on Male island. A small bomb explosion on Male on 29 September 2007 injured a number of people, including foreigners.
