Stunning gorgeous Male aerial
Male is the capital and largest city of the Maldives. The city is settled across three islands, most of which are heavily built up and populated. It is the only legal entry point to anywhere in the Maldives.

Ancient island empires ruled the land and set up grand palaces here, which were later destroyed in the late 20th Century. The actual city of Male began as a Portuguese trading post in the 16th Century.

Today, Male is known as the center of Maldivian culture and economy, its island beauty, beaches, clear waters, luxury hotels and resorts, tourism, outdoor markets, and crowded, relaxed atmosphere.
