Male as a tour and holiday destination
Male is the capital of the Maldives island nation which is known for their luxurious holiday resorts and tropical beaches. It is located on the small Male islet on the North Male Atoll. 100 000 people live on the islet that is only 1 kilometers wide and 1.7 kilometers long. Many international visitors arriving to the nearby airport head directly to the beaches, but there are many attractions in the city too. The city is so small that is easy to walk around. You can find good places to eat on the South West Harbor neighborhood.
Things to do in Male
Most attractions in Male are on the northern part of the islet and you can tour all of them by foot. In the center of the islet is the Republic Square park. The Maldives is an Islamic nation, and the Islamic Center in Male has the country's biggest mosque. Non-muslims can visit this mosque outside prayer hours, but you need a prior permission to visit the 17th century Friday Mosque nearby. Male also has a National Museum, located in a building that once was part of a palace owned by the Sultan. The Male Market is a good place to visit for those who like shopping and haggling for the best prices. The shops along Majeedhee Magu sell imported goods and clothes.
Best time to visit Male
Most international visitors come to Male between December to April, which are the driest months in the Maldives. Tourists usually avoid July and August when the southwest monsoon brings most rain, but you can visit the city any time of the year. Male's climate is generally humid and hot, and you might experience some rain showers any time you visit. The international airport is on the Hulhule island, next to the Male islet.
