Male the Capital

Maldives. Government and private offices are located in Male’ and due to this it is a city of high-rise
buildings and well paved roads. You will not find any natural beaches in the Male’. However an artificial
beach has been set up for those residing here to take a dip. There are islands nearby with natural beaches
though. Closes island to Male is Vilingili.
Male’ however is appropriate for shopping for souvenirs to take back home. And of course there are places
worth visiting here in the Capital of Maldives. Please let us know and we will arrange a special trip from
your resort to Male’ to see sites like the fish market and the local market at the northern waterfront, the new
harbour in the south-west corner and the 400-year old Friday Mosque, to name a few.
