The main island of the Maldives’ capital city of Malé covers less that one square mile, yet is home to some 250,000 people, making it one of the most densely populated cities in the word. When you imagine the Maldives, small paradise islands of sand and water usually come to mind, but Malé is very different – this densely built-up city looks more like a modern metropolis floating in the water. While in Malé, pay a visit to the traditional fish market, as well as the Sultan's palace, which is surrounded by a magnificent tropical park, and the Hukuru Miskiiy mosque, which was built in the 17th century.
Above all else, a trip to Malé is the perfect jumping off point to explore its surrounding islets. Discover all our travel ideas in Malé below.
