South Male Atoll

4.1
Scuba & Snorkeling · Swim with Dolphins · Water Sports
Like the rest of the Maldives, South Malé Atoll features dazzling white sand, bendy palms, and turquoise lagoons. Though close to the Maldives' capital, South Malé Atoll feels much less busy and crowded than its northern partner. Barring resorts, only three islands have a resident population, all situated down the eastern edge of the atoll. Thanks to a fiercely competitive diving and day-trip market--plus a high number of (relatively) affordable guesthouses--vacations in South Malé Atoll remain a great choice for budget travelers. With a high proportion of foreign visitors, the biggest island, Maafushi, feels progressive for the Maldives. It even boasts a foreigners' beach, where you can bathe in a bikini without fears of upsetting locals. Take the guesswork out of planning a Maldives vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
