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.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Sat): hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market and then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour. On the next day, explore the galleries of National Museum, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Grand Friday Mosque, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

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.
