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, stroll around Sultan Park, kick back and relax at Artificial Beach, and stroll through Hulhumale Beach.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, go to the Male holiday planning website.

Chennai, India to Male is an approximately 7- 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. Expect a bit warmer evenings in Male when traveling from Chennai in February, with lows around 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Maafushi Island.
