Maldives Tours, Maldives Sightseeing & Things to Do in Maldives

Male Walking Tour
From $30 USD – 1 day activity
Highlights:
Wander the roads of Male, the capital of the Maldives and discover the history, religion and culture of the city that rises from the Indian Ocean. Experience a sensory overload at the fish market and local market, hear historical stories of the President's Palace, Sultan Park and Friday Mosque. Rest your legs at Royal Garden Café, an oasis of tranquility within the hubbub of the city and take in the view from one of the city's tallest buildings.

Your tour starts with an overview of Male and the harbour area, a very important aspect of any island nation.

Passing by the oldest school in the city, learn about the education system and why the Maldives has a 98% literacy rate. Visit Hukuru Miskiiy - Old Friday Mosque and the tomb of Abu -al - Barakaath and learn why the Maldives converted to Islam and how the Islamic faith underpins everyday life.

Stop for a refreshing cup of traditional black tea at Royal Garden Café, a popular spot for locals. Housed in a rare example of a ‘ganduvaru’ a nobleman’s house, it provides a great example of traditional dark carved wood interiors.

Stopping at the November 3rd Memorial, hear the story of how 8 brave military servicemen died in the protection of their country from a terrorist attack in 1988. Wander through Sultan Park, a reference to the time the Maldives was governed by a sultanate with an optional visit to the National Museum. (Note: Entrance fee not included.)

Walking back towards the harbour area, pass by the Grand Friday Mosque and the Islamic Centre, Male's famous architectural landmark and onto Jumhooree Maiden - Independence Square. From here, learn the meaning of the Maldives national flag and pick out key government buildings.

Heading west along the harbour, visit the bustling fish market and the local market, where the sights, sounds and smells will fill your senses. Chat with the local stall holders and taste tropical produce and homemade sweets.

The tour finishes at the top of one of the city's tallest buildings, providing a great back drop to your final tour photo image!
