When in Male, make a side trip to see HP Reef in Furanafushi Island, approximately Furanafushi Island away. There's lots more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market, appreciate the history behind Victory Monument, take in the spiritual surroundings of Medhu Ziyaarath, and admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Male trip planning app.
