Male

— 1 night
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.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Mon): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Grand Friday Mosque and then admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque). Here are some ideas for day two: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

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.
