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, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, kick back and relax at Artificial Beach, and step off the mainland to explore Hulhumale.

To find maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Male day trip website.

Kolkata (Calcutta), India to Male is an approximately 8.5- hour combination of flight and ferry. You'll gain 0.5 hours traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) to Male due to the time zone difference. In December, Male is somewhat warmer than Kolkata (Calcutta) - with highs of 36°C and lows of 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Maafushi Island.
