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.
Take a break from Male with a short trip to Hulhumale Beach in Hulhumale, about 50 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Banana Reef, examine the collection at National Museum, don't miss a visit to Maldive Victory, and admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).
