Maldives

Post by Splash » Fri Nov 29, 2019 4:39 pm

Hello
I am going to the Maldives next week for a few weeks and and thinking of buying a simplex machine to take out there with me as it looks like a good value machine.
Dos anyone know if its allowed to metal detect out there?
Tried looking on the internet but not so clear information.
Thanks

I’m not knowledgeable about the Maldives but I’m moved it to the international permissions section so hopefully someone else can help ::g

I have been a few times and taken a scubatector with me which is very discreet.
It may not be illegal to detect, but a lot of the island’s are exclusive and they certainly don’t like you doing anything that may upset the other island guests. (They sweep the beaches twice a day to keep them pristine)
I would certainly ask your holiday organiser before assuming that it’s ok to detect on the island that you are holidaying on, like this country the land/island is owned by an entity that may or may not want you detecting on what is their property.
Hope this is of help.

So you are going to be swinging your coil in beautiful sunshine while we plod through ankle deep mud. Not jealous at all. Good hunting and be sure to check out treasure regs. for the Maldives before going through customs. =)) :;@

According to a source on the net, detecting is allowed in India so I would assume it would be the same for the Maldives.

You could always email the resort but I would imagine they've never had such a request as I've never seen anyone metal-detecting whilst I've been there.

Hi Fisher
I am surprised that such a keen metal detector fan such as you didnt even think about enquiring about whether it was allowed while you where there???
Its beach metal detecting heaven x;
Ive been there many times over the years but wasnt into metal detecting then unfortunatley.
Did you do any fishing while you were there?

Great that you can use a detector ::g . Remember though that you still need the landowner’s permission. Here we are lucky that most beaches are owned by the Crown and they give us pretty unrestricted permission to detect.

The same is not the same for other countries and permission will still be required ::g

Thanks for the advice oxigirl
A question for the new simplex users, does it look like a good portable machine for holiday metal detecting?
