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.
Family-friendly places like Scuba & Snorkeling and Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque) will thrill your kids. The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market, pause for some photo ops at Victory Monument, walk around Sultan Park, and kick back and relax at Artificial Beach.

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.
