The tiny but densely populated city of Male represents a contrast to the laid-back beach resorts found in much of the rest of the Maldives.
Go for a jaunt from Male to Furanafushi Island to see HP Reef about 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, contemplate the long history of Mulee Aage, explore the galleries of National Museum, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
