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.
Shop till you drop at Male Fish Market and Nala Boutique. Get a sense of the local culture at National Museum and Grand Friday Mosque. Change things up with a short trip to HP Reef in Furanafushi Island (about 48 minutes away). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), tour the pleasant surroundings at Artificial Beach, pause for some photo ops at Tsunami Monument, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.
