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: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), see the interesting displays at National Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Friday Mosque.

For where to stay, maps, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Male road trip planning website.

New Delhi, India to Male is an approximately 8.5- hour combination of flight and ferry. You'll gain 0.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Male due to the time zone difference. When traveling from New Delhi in October, plan for a bit cooler days and a bit warmer nights in Male: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 30°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel to Maafushi Island.
