Now, this is the capital city of the island nation, Maldives. But do not expect a huge city with a large area, as it is barely 8.30 sq. km and is situated in Kaafu Atoll. The skyscrapers and other huge buildings of the islands are still surrounded by turquoise blue ocean waters. Even though Male is the largest and most populous city of Maldives, you could get to experience that beach vibe everywhere you move to. To explore the rich culture and history of this island nation, you may wander around its narrow yet vivid streets. Tourists when visiting them could take a stroll through its buzzing streets and know the very pulse of this capital city. Do not miss to pass by Victory Monument and the iconic Grand Friday Mosque of Male, which is the biggest in the Maldives. Shop for some rare souvenirs from those streets of Male, where you could also get to find massive mosques, offices, restaurants and a gateway to all other tourist islands of Maldives. Nevertheless, unlike other capital cities, you are not going to the airport. For which you will be required to sail to the adjacent Hulhumale Island.
