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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at National Museum and Mulee Aage. Relax by the water at Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach. Step out of Male with an excursion to Hulhumale Mosque in Hulhumale--about 56 minutes away. The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Local Market, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
