Male, Maldives Travel Guide Last Updated: Mar 2022

A tiny and densely populated island, Malé is not an obvious backpacker or tourist destination on its own merits. Most visitors come here on their way to or from one of the hundreds of resorts on other Maldivian islands, so there really isn’t much to see or do here.
