"Maale - Capital of the Maldives" Maale by kim_shell

Maale Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 7 photos

It is quite amazing that so much can get built on such a small piece of land. It was a very interesting day trip to the Capital which had been arranged by our hotel staff on Giravaru.

Everyone that comes to Maale will come through the Harbour shown in the picture. All transport to the other Atolls leaves from here. There are a lot of government buildings in the area that cannot be photographed because of security

Things to do

It is definitly worth taking a walk around the capital - you cannot get lost! There are cars in the capital so be careful when wondering down what appears to be a deserted street! We found some super markets where we bought some "local" produce and found water which was a 10th in price to what hotels charged.

Other activities include;

Botanical Gardens
Local Markets
Fish Market
Islamic Centres
Presidential palace
