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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Mulee Aage and National Museum. Take a break from Male with a short trip to HP Reef in Furanafushi Island, about 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: explore the gorgeous colors at Banana Reef, cast your line with a fishing tour, admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Friday Mosque.
