Male

— 2 nights
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.
Go for a jaunt from Male to Vihamanafushi to see Veli Spa at Kurumba Maldives about 44 minutes away. There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, stroll around Sultan Park, admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), and browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market.

To see photos, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Male trip builder website.

Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India to Male is an approximately 4.5-hour combination of flight and ferry.

Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Shark Diving
Maldives has come to be seen as a quintessential island holiday destination, with entire sand-circled islands owned by resorts, who manage each part of the island's environment to give it the look and feel of paradise. The clear waters surrounding the islands offer plentiful dive sites, rich in tropical fish and coral formations, with the smaller, less-populated islands surrounded by the richest marine environments, largely undisturbed by industry and tourism. Larger islands here offer an array of bars, restaurants, and clubs--their higher population means they also feature religious sites and markets selling local produce.
