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.
Male is known for shopping, wildlife, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, take a memorable tour with Tours, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market.

To find maps, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read our Male journey maker website.

Dammam, Saudi Arabia to Male is an approximately 11-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Arabian Standard Time to Maldives Time is 2 hours. Traveling from Dammam in February, you will find days in Male are a bit warmer (°C), and nights are much warmer (°C). Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to catch the ferry to Rasdhoo.
