Male

— 3 nights
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.
We've included these beaches for you: Artificial Beach and Rasfannu. There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, see the interesting displays at National Museum, walk around Sultan Park, and appreciate the history behind Tsunami Monument.

To find other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Male online trip planner.

Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Shark Diving
Maldives has come to be seen as a quintessential island holiday destination, with entire sand-circled islands owned by resorts, who manage each part of the island's environment to give it the look and feel of paradise. The clear waters surrounding the islands offer plentiful dive sites, rich in tropical fish and coral formations, with the smaller, less-populated islands surrounded by the richest marine environments, largely undisturbed by industry and tourism. Larger islands here offer an array of bars, restaurants, and clubs--their higher population means they also feature religious sites and markets selling local produce.
