Male finds mention in almost every traveler’s wish list for being the gateway to the incredible Maldives’ islands. One of the smallest capitals in the world, the city’s appeal lies in its quaint avenues, squeaky clean streets and imposing skyscrapers. Compared to the relaxed ambience within the islands surrounding Male, the bustling city is something extraordinary! Herein lies the true Maldivian spirit, with bright lights, quirky bars, a maze of local markets that sell everything under the sun, and mosques that bear testament to the city’s Islamic heritage. A word of caution, alcohol is prohibited on the island, although it is allowed within the private resorts.
