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: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Hulhumale Beach, admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), and stroll through Artificial Beach.

To find ratings, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Male trip itinerary maker .

Rome, Italy to Male is an approximately 13-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and ferry. The time zone difference when traveling from Rome to Male is 4 hours. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Rome in December, with highs in Male at 36°C and lows at 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Maafushi Island.
