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. Surrounded by pristine clear blue waters, the bustling city hemmed in by tall, colorful buildings ensures a dynamic Male holiday. Aside from the city's buzz of activity, there are plenty of charming distractions, such as markets, restaurants, and alcohol-free bars. Walking around and surveying the authentic lives of ordinary working people in Male gives an insight that the resorts can't offer. When using our Maldives online road trip planner to make an itinerary online, Male holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Male

Due to the city's dense population, you may be hard-pressed to find spacious accommodations at any time of year in Male. If you're here in transit to one of the surrounding resorts, you may not be able to avoid Male's high prices, as transfers to the islands are generally only possible during daylight hours. The rooms in the hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses of Male are on the whole clean, if basic. For more affordable options head to the nearby isle of Hulhumale: a ten-minute boat ride away, this spot proves popular with backpackers.
