Tourism has been the most important industry in the Maldives since 1985. Yet, research into its effects remains scarce. Using primary and secondary data, we analyse this industry's impact on the Maldives' economy, environment, and society. By highlighting contrasting views, between fact and perception, and between residents in different occupations, we demonstrate that the effects of tourism in Maldives are complex and heterogeneous.
