Male

The tiny but densely populated city of Male represents a contrast to the laid-back beach resorts found in much of the rest of the Maldives.
Escape the urban bustle at HP Reef and Shark Diving. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Nala Boutique and Mare Scuba Concept. Venture out of the city with trips to Waterskiing & Jetskiing (in Furanafushi Island) and Spas & Wellness (in Vihamanafushi). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Mulee Aage, enjoy the sand and surf at Artificial Beach, appreciate the history behind Tsunami Monument, and stroll through Sultan Park.

To see traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Male holiday planner.

Traveling by ferry from Kanifinolhu Island to Male takes an hour. In September, daytime highs in Male are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to catch the ferry to Rasdhoo.
