Male is the capital of the Maldives, a truly magnificent castaway paradise. The city itself is more of a bustling hub of activity, surrounded by seawalls and acting as the ideal place to head out and explore the nearby tranquil islands. If you want to escape for a few hours to some of the world’s finest beaches, the Maldives is the ideal place to sunbathe on the sands in a truly tropical climate, or to try your hand at snorkeling – the wildlife is rich and varied, and regarded as some of the most beautiful in the world. Just hop on a water taxi to visit one of the islands close to Male.
If you’d rather stick to Male itself, you’ll be able to choose from a selection of great restaurants to grab a bite, while the Hukuru Miskiiy is a grand mosque dating back to the 17th century that offers plenty of intrigue and man-made wonder. The National Museum is also found in Male, home to a wide-ranging collection of items belonging to the Sultans, including ornate clothing and weaponry.
The Maldivian Rufiyaa is the official currency of Male. Male is 5 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +5).
