When to Fly

The great news is, Male has good weather all year round.  If you’re a diving enthusiast, the best time to book flights to the Maldives is during April when the weather is hot and the water is clear.  For cooler weather, book flights to Male during the wet monsoon season in the months of May through to March.  There’s still plenty of sunshine to enjoy while flights and accommodation are also a lot cheaper off season.  How about travelling to Male to experience the island’s many national holidays like Independence Day, Nation Day, Victory Day and Republic Day? Republic Day is an exciting event that is celebrated throughout the country and it marks the historical day that the Maldives became a republic for the second time in 1968. Male is the centre of the celebrations and it hosts the largest parades, parties and live music in comparison to other towns.

Official festivities for Independence Day are held in Republic Square on 26th July where the Maldivian locals as well as tourists gather to watch the annual army march, brightly coloured and vibrant parade and spectacular displays of traditional dancing.

Destination Overview

The beautiful city of Male is the capital of the Maldives Islands.  It’s the ideal holiday destination with a unique character of its own that visitors find most endearing.  You will soon soak up the atmosphere in the narrow streets, bustling marketplaces and bazaars.  Check out the many different coloured skyscrapers where locals live in harmony with one another as it’s quite an amazing sight.  There are more than 100,000 people living in the Maldives on an island which is only just over 2 km long and 1.2 km wide.  There are plenty of historical sites to see such as the world famous Hukuru Miskiiy mosque that was built in 1656 while overlooking this iconic building is the current presidential residence.  If you want to cool off, head for the city’s artificial beach where you can have a swim, top up your tan and recharge your batteries.  The beach and surf point Raalhugandu can be found on the south eastern side of Male.  Why not try surfing the waves? Surf boards and huts can be hired for the day so you don’t miss out on any of the action.  Shopping is also very popular here.  There’s a wide selection of shops selling everything from clothing, jewellery, footwear, electronics and books. Bartering can be great fun in the local markets where you can pick up a bargain or two.
