Artificial Beach, Male

2.7
#2 of 12 in Parks in Kaafu Atoll
Appreciate local beach culture without leaving the city at Artificial Beach. The man-made attraction offers locals and visitors a chance to swim and relax in a city that lacks natural beaches. Visit the site to escape the city's crowded tourist scene for a while and see how true Maldivians enjoy themselves. Remember to dress and behave appropriately, avoiding revealing swimsuits and public displays of affection. Put Artificial Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Male journey website .

  • Normally the sea around Male is deep and you will not be able to have a sea bath. But the artificial beach in Male will fulfill that requirement. Its safe to have a sea bath and swim here.  more »
  • Morning 6 o'clock, but was swimming a lot of local people. It's too hot during the day, so is often swim in the morning and evening. Mare Island artificial Beach would still have coral in the Maldives, so in the picture I am.

  • As the name itself implies, it is a man made beach and is a haven for the local people as well as foreigners. A long stretch of land reclaimed from the sea forms the beach. Specially made swimming area is available and is a favourite haunt of the people of Male' for sea bathing. Since it is an open space there are certain restrictions in using swimwear. Cafe' and restaurants are available for the visitors. It is also a place of social gathering where carnivals and shows and concerts are held. There are also facilities for certain sports.

  • One of the most beautiful places in the Malé. Best place to bring the children to play in the evening. There are few good restaurants to taste good food near the beach. Colour of the water is crystal clear and shining sky blue. Bikinis or short dresses are not allowed in this area. Must visit place in Maldives.
  • Best to relieve your stress and enjoy the seas
  • The eastern seafront of Male is the city’s recreational centre. Here, a small beach 🏊 has been made from the breakwater tetrapods and there’s a big range of cafes next to it. The beach is a no bikini beach. Adjacent to the beach is an open field for ad hoc games of football, basket ball and cricket. 🏀 ⚽
