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.
Male is known for shopping, wildlife, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Grand Friday Mosque, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and pause for some photo ops at Tsunami Monument.

To find traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, read Male trip builder app.

Cairo, Egypt to Male is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern European Standard Time (EET) to Maldives Time (MVT), which is usually a 3 hour difference. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Cairo in August: highs in Male hover around 36°C, while lows dip to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) to allow enough time to ride a ferry to Rasdhoo.
