Best Things To Do in Male

Though it is a small city, there are many interesting things to do in Male that make any vacation on the island capital a splendid experience full of adventure and romance. From admiring the Islamic and pre-Islamic architectural sites to gazing at awe-inspiring modern monuments to shopping in the local markets, there are many fun-filled things to do in Male. Because of its close proximity to other important islands in Maldives, and its smooth water transport system, enjoying Male also means enjoying the beauties of the other islands around it.

There are several monuments that make for good sightseeing spots, and you will also find many parks and beaches where you can sit back and relax in peace. A city tour of Male is the best and the most comprehensive way to enjoy the myriad sights of the city since a local guide will not only be able to conduct you better through the tiny streets but also add a pinch of adventure to the sights by flavouring them with local insights. Hulhumale, the artificial sister island of Male, should also be included in your city tour since it basically acts an extension of the main capital, and has many interesting monuments to see and restaurants to dine in.

When you are in Male, you cannot miss out on its beaches. Water sports are among the best things to do in Male, and they can be enjoyed in all their depth and variety on the beaches around Male. Scuba diving and snorkelling are the most popular adventure activities in Male, but other interesting things like sea walks and submarine rides can also be enjoyed here.
