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.
Relax by the water at Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach. For shopping fun, head to Male Fish Market or Island Bazaar. Next up on the itinerary: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, examine the collection at National Museum, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and walk around Sultan Park.

For reviews, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Male 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.
