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, historic sites, museums, and spas. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), stroll through Hulhumale Beach, and hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market.
