The Maldives is a group of islands in the Indian Ocean known and famous for its beautiful beaches, blue lagoons and extensive coral reefs. The tropical nation is composed of 26 atolls with more than a thousand coral islands. Capital city Male is one of the smallest (and most densely populated) capitals in the world. The central harbour and port of the Maldives is located in Male, the centre for all commercial activities. It lies on Male Atoll, about 645 kms southwest of Sri Lanka. It is the seat of government for the Maldivians. There are central courts, a government hospital, public and private schools, and a vocational-training school focused on engineering here in Male. The city is different from the other resort islands in the Republic of Maldives – it is built on a grid pattern with high buildings and paved roads. The built-up area takes up the entire landmass in Male. In the heavily urbanized central island, narrow streets are densely stacked with a mix of shops, apartment blocks, restaurants, office buildings and motorcycle jams. Malé has many tourist attractions to visit and nearby resorts. Today, it is a very popular holiday destination in Maldives among couples, families and groups of friends. Here is a definitive list of the must-see places to visit with your family:
