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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Male: Hulhumale (Hulhumale Beach & Hulhumale Mosque). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), tour the pleasant surroundings at Artificial Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Friday Mosque, and see the interesting displays at National Museum.

For ratings, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Male trip app .

Doha, Qatar to Male is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Arabia Standard Time (AST) to Maldives Time (MVT), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Traveling from Doha in July, you will find days in Male are cooler (36°C), and nights are little chillier (30°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Maafushi Island.
