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.
Visit Hulhumale Beach and Rasfannu for some beach relaxation. There's much more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, stroll around Sultan Park, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and see the interesting displays at National Museum.

To see photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Male online road trip planner.

New Delhi, India to Male is an approximately 8.5- hour combination of flight and ferry. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time to Maldives Time is minus 0.5 hours.
