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 explore the less-touristy side of things at HP Reef and Rasfannu. Bring the kids along to Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Banana Reef, browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market, examine the collection at National Museum, and get outside with Outdoor Activities.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Male vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Salt Lake City, USA to Male is an approximately 33-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Salt Lake City to Male is 12 hours.
