Male — 8 nights

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.
Step out of Male with an excursion to Hulhumale Mosque in Hulhumale--about 56 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Friday Mosque, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, examine the collection at National Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

To see ratings, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Male online tour planner.

Paris, France to Male is an approximately 16-hour combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Paris to Male due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Paris in September, you will find days in Male are a bit warmer (36°C), and nights are much hotter (30°C). Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel to Vihamanafushi.

Maldives has come to be seen as a quintessential island holiday destination, with entire sand-circled islands owned by resorts, who manage each part of the island's environment to give it the look and feel of paradise. The clear waters surrounding the islands offer plentiful dive sites, rich in tropical fish and coral formations, with the smaller, less-populated islands surrounded by the richest marine environments, largely undisturbed by industry and tourism. Larger islands here offer an array of bars, restaurants, and clubs--their higher population means they also feature religious sites and markets selling local produce.
