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 .

  • Artificial Beach is a small beach in Male city and is not really well maintained. Can be see if one has time to spare since there are not many activities in the city.  more »
  • It's a man-made beach. Looks like a real beach overlooking the city and the ocean. Nice to have a look and walk around if you have plenty of free time.  more »

  • 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.
  • It's fun I have a very funny memory here a srilankan friend n me were walking around n he saw people making BBQ he thought they've selling n he asked me I explained to him its a family enjoying picnic but yet he wanted to buy food cx he didn't understand a word I said later whn he went to their grill to buy food they actually have him food and he asked them how much n they said we nor not selling lol we thought u r hungry n u want food lol.... lovely Maldives
  • 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. 🏀 ⚽
