Maldives Tour & Travel Guide - Places to See in Maldives

Male being the capital city of Maldives, automatically becomes a preferred stop for most travelers during their trip to this wonderful group of islands.

National Museum, Male

One of the main tourist attraction destinations of the country, the museum was earlier the Sultan’s palace. It houses a valuable collection of objects belonging to the Sultans. Ornaments and costumes of kings and queens, arms and armor, items of the Maldives' pre-Islamic period, old paper and cloth manuscripts, anthropological objects – objects representing Maldives’ history and culture are exhibited in the museum.

Old Friday Mosque, Male

Constructed by Sultan Ibrahim Iskandhar in 1656, it is the biggest mosque in Maldives. And what pretty artwork! A beautiful golden dome gives you the first hint of its splendor. With its unique minarets, wonderful coral engravings and tombs of national heroes as well as members of royalty, a visit to this imperial mosque promises to take you through a lovely journey into the past. The mosque has a total accommodate capacity of 5000 people.

National Art Gallery, Male

It is the only one-of-its-kind gallery in the country, and therefore art lovers should take a little peek into this place.

Seenu Atoll

The second largest atoll in the Maldives, this was earlier an air force base. With splendid diving locations, this is one of the best places in the world if you want to explore marine life in all its magnificence. The reefs here are teeming with exotic sea mammals such as manta ray, eagle ray, green turtles and lobsters. Gray reef sharks and white tip reef sharks are also found in specific areas. Thus even scientists and marine biologists throng this region regularly.

North Male Atoll

Veligandu Island Beach and Banana reef are two of the most popular tourist spots in the North Male atoll.

Biyadhoo Island, South Male Atoll

A privately-owned island at the South Male Atoll, Biyadhoo is about 29 kilometers from the Male International Airport, and like most of the islands in the southern side, its known for its superb diving spots and glorious marine life. A walk on the beach as the sun sets quietly into the Indian Ocean, and you will be bound to wonder if paradise could really be any different.
