Malé travel tips

To get around easily in the Maldives, you should stay at hotels in Malé City, from which you can easily get around anywhere on the small island using the public ferries (the 305 and 306 ferries will likely prove useful). Another easily accessible area is Mahibadhoo, which is located west of Malé. You can get from Mahibadhoo to Malé on the 305 ferry, but the entire island is small enough so that you can walk anywhere.

Where to stay in Malé

If you’re traveling to Malé for business, it’s a good idea to book hotels in the Malé city centre. This is the area where the Maldives’ business centre is located; you can easily get around between the islands by riding the ferries that stop in Malé’s harbor. The 305 and 306 ferries stop here. In this area, you’ll find Malé hotels such as Somerset Inn or JEN Maldives Male by Shangri-La. You can also find cheap hotels in Malé’s city centre, such as Kaani Lodge. These hotels are also reachable via local 403 bus line. Families wanting a calmer area to stay in might consider the nearby island Villimalé. There is a local Villimalé ferry that connects Malé and Villimalé. Here, you can stay at The Vinorva Maldives. If you’re traveling on a budget, you should think about staying in Hulhumalé to the north, which you’ll get to on the N2 bus from Malé City. Here, you can stay at cheap hotels in Malé such as Club Blu.

Learn about attractions and sights in Malé

One of the most popular attractions in Malé is the National Art Gallery located in the Republic Square. You’ll get here on the 305 or 306 ferry, and once there, the gallery will educate you more on Maldivian art. For a more historical exhibition, you can visit the nearby National Museum, which has a big collection of historical artifacts. The National Museum is also in the Republic Square and is reachable with the 305 and 306 ferries. Many visitors to Malé choose to make a visit to the family-friendly Artificial Beach, located on Malé’s east coast. This area is reachable on bus 401 and 404.

Malé’s city centre has a big variety of restaurants and bars, and this is the area where most of the nightlife is concentrated. Around Republic Square you will find several jazz and live music cafés popular for night fun. You’ll also find bistros serving local Maldivian food. You can get to this area by taking the 403 bus. Another area with many restaurants is Hulhumalé on the north side of Malé. Here you’ll find several seafood and lobster restaurants. You get to Hulhumalé via the N2 bus route from the Malé city centre.

The Maldives have several annual festivals that are worth considering when you’re planning your trip. One of the biggest holidays is the National Day, which takes place in February. The festival includes parades covering virtually all of the Maldives, but in Malé, you can be sure to catch the procession around Republic Square. Arrive at the festival on the 403 bus or the 305 and 306 ferries. Another big event that occurs each year is Republic Day. This holiday takes place on November 11, and even though it’s celebrated all over the country, Malé City is the centre of the festivities. Like National Day, Republic Day features parades and performances that take place around Republic Square, which is reachable on the 403 bus or the 305 and 306 ferries.
