Malé, the main island of the Maldives, offers a contrast to the calm and sheltered Maldivian lifestyle.

The population of this island grew so quickly that the island had to be artificially enlarged.  More than 1/3rd of the island’s current area has been converted from sea.

A must-see in Malé is its mosques: the Hukuru Miskiiy and the Friday Mosque with its gold cupola can be seen from far away.  Also, the fish market and marketplace should not be missed.

In Reefside, one can buy all brands of diving equipment at cheap prices, along with countless souvenir shops.

In the shaded garden of the cafe/restaurant "Seagulls", you can find ice cream specialities, fresh-squeezed fruit juices and fabulous snacks for noshing until the Nautilus Two pulls anchor.
