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.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Mon): hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, then stroll around Sultan Park, and then center your mind and body at Veli Spa at Kurumba Maldives. Keep things going the next day: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, then enjoy the sand and surf at Artificial Beach, and then admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

To find other places to visit, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Male trip itinerary planner.

Mumbai, India to Male is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and ferry. Traveling from Mumbai to Male, you'll gain 0.5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Mumbai in December, Male is a bit warmer at night with lows of 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to ride a ferry to Rasdhoo.
