Malé, the gateway to the Maldives

Malé is a little seen side of the Maldives but a destination that offers visitors a unique character of its own. The densely packed capital city covers the entire tiny islet of Malé with narrow streets, vibrant colours and crowds of locals going about their business. As the economic heart of the Maldives, Malé is not the postcard perfect scene of palm trees and beaches one may expect. Nonetheless, tourists will find bustling markets, lively restaurants and a tremendous selection of shops.

See the sights

There are a number of interesting things to do and see in Malé and you’ll find most of them easily enough during a wander around the city. Hukuru Miskiiy, also known as Friday Mosque, is an intriguing construction. Built in 1655, it boasts intricately carved Arabic writings and ornamental patterns, however it is worth noting non-Muslims are not allowed to enter without prior permission. The Islamic centre is the most-recognised architectural landmark in the city and contains the largest Mosque in the Maldives, topped with an enormous golden dome. While the National Museum is deemed a bit of an eyesore, inside you’ll find an excellent display of artefacts that trace the unusual history of the islands. Malé Market is a must-see, with vendors enthusiastically pushing their wares, and the Majeedhee Magu shopping street is perfect for some retail therapy.

The Whale Submarine is a top pick for many tourists, taking you on a 30-40 minute trip along the coast with some great views of marine life. As far as beaches go, the artificial beach on the East coast isn’t bad for a dip, and is also known for an impressive surf break. Hulhumale Island, a short boat ride away, has a nice artificial beach as well as some lovely restaurants and cafes. The only natural beach in Malé is located on nearby Villingili Island. Catch the ferry from South West Harbour and take a swim or enjoy some snorkelling. Of course, Malé is perfectly located for onward trips to more well-known resort islands of the Maldives, so once you’ve seen the city, island hop to the picturesque destination of your dreams.

Book a hotel

As Malé is more often a stopover for travellers, much of the mid-range accommodation on offer is lacking the comforts desired for a longer stay. If you are planning on exploring the city for a few days, opt for a higher-end hotel or book a room on close-by Hulhule Island. Hotels on Hulhule are generally cheaper and much more pleasant. Immigration will require your address for your visit so book ahead to avoid complications on entry.

Getting there and around

Being such a small city in area, Malé’s International Airport is actually located on the neighbouring island of Hulhule. If you haven’t prearranged your airport transfer, head to the public ferry dock to catch a ride to the city. Ferries leave frequently and take around twenty minutes. Once in the city there’s really no need for transport as the entire islet is only 1.7km long. Walking is the best way to explore but when necessary local taxis can be hailed all over the city.
