Nope - no ATMs

Have to get your cash before hand in Male

There’s about 10 different places to eat - small cafes. Lots of fresh seafood

No bars - no alcohol on the local islands

Nope. It's cash only. Unless something changed since August.

Hi

Get US dollars and take with you ATM's in Male will only give you local currency which you can't change back.i you have any left over. Dollars are welcome everywhere in the Maldives

Yes take US currency. Yes the ATMs only dispense Maldivian currency - but any left over can be exchanged inside the airport back into other currency (US, AUD etc). This is done at the foreign exchange where the duty free shops are past the immigration point

We got the max in Maldivian currency at the airport and brought dollars just in case. The restaurants on Thulusdhoo all took creditcard and there was one hotel that you could use as an atm. My guess is that most local islands have some sort of solution like this.
