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: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), kick back and relax at Hulhumale Beach, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market.

For where to stay, photos, and tourist information, go to the Male trip itinerary builder website.

Mumbai, India to Male is an approximately 6- hour combination of flight and ferry. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time (IST) to Maldives Time (MVT) is minus 0.5 hours. In August, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to drive to Rasdhoo.

As the only inhabited island in the Rasdhoo Atoll, Rasdhoo serves as a basecamp of sorts for vacationing in the area.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Sun): kick back and relax at Bikini Beach and then step off the mainland to explore Sand Bank. Here are some ideas for day two: tour the pleasant surroundings at Veligandu Island Beach and then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Plan a trip to Rasdhoo easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Traveling by car from Male to Rasdhoo takes 5.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in August, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to travel to Maafushi Island.
