Male

— 3 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.
Change things up with a short trip to Veli Spa at Kurumba Maldives in Vihamanafushi (about 44 minutes away). There's much more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, explore the galleries of National Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hulhumale Beach.

For where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Male driving holiday planner.

New York City, USA to Male is an approximately 21.5-hour combination of flight and ferry. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Maldives Time is 10 hours. Traveling from New York City in May, expect nights in Male to be much hotter, around 80°F, while days are somewhat warmer, around 89°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel to Kuredu.

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.
