Main port photo for Maldives (Male)

Malé is the capital of the Maldives - a republic comprised of 26 coral atolls and 1,190 islands draped along the Indian Ocean like a string of pearls. With a population of 150,000 souls, the Maldives are an unspoiled paradise of white-sand beaches, placid lagoons, and coral reefs. Malé is the most developed city and island in the republic, boasting modern high-rise buildings and a surprising host of cars.

Ironically, there are no beaches on Malé itself - the island is bordered by a seawall. There is an artificial beach is on north east corner of the island. Visitors to the Male' and other village islands should cover from shoulders to the knee all the time even at the beach as fit for Muslim society.
