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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Male Fish Market and Island Bazaar. Visiting HP Reef and Fishing Charters & Tours will get you outdoors. The adventure continues: see the vivid underwater world at Banana Reef, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Rasfannu, and enjoy the sand and surf at Hulhumale Beach.
