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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Divers Lodge Maldives. Step off the beaten path and head to HP Reef and Medhu Ziyaarath. There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), see what you can catch with a fishing tour, appreciate the history behind Victory Monument, and make a trip to Tsunami Monument.

To see where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Male day trip planning tool .

Islamabad, Pakistan to Male is an approximately 11-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also do a combination of taxi, flight, and ferry. While traveling from Islamabad, expect little chillier days and about the same nights in Male, ranging from highs of 36°C to lows of 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Hulhumale.
