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. Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, appreciate the history behind Tsunami Monument, and explore the galleries of National Museum.

For other places to visit, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Male trip planner.

Cairo, Egypt to Male is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Cairo to Male. Traveling from Cairo in July, expect nights in Male to be about the same, around 30°C, while days are little chillier, around 36°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) early enough to travel to Maafushi Island.

Scuba & Snorkeling · Nature & Parks · 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.
