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.
Get some cultural insight at National Museum and Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque). Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Artificial Beach. There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sultan Park, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Friday Mosque.
