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.
Visit Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach for some beach relaxation. Discover out-of-the-way places like Banana Reef and Fishing Charters & Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Male: Hulhumale Mosque (in Hulhumale) and HP Reef (in Furanafushi Island). There's lots more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, and contemplate the long history of Mulee Aage.

Istanbul, Turkey to Male is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Istanbul to Male due to the time zone difference.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to ride a ferry to Rasdhoo.
