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.
Step out of Male with an excursion to Hulhumale Beach in Hulhumale--about 50 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: get outside with Outdoor Activities, enjoy the sand and surf at Artificial Beach, examine the collection at National Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

For traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Male trip itinerary planner .

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Male is an approximately 15-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Arabia Standard Time to Maldives Time is 2 hours. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Jeddah in August, with highs in Male at 36°C and lows at 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) so you can travel to Maafushi Island.
