Male, Maldives

The Maldives is a chain of almost 1200 low-lying islands, located 220 miles South West of India. The Maldives is a beautiful travel destination with its tropical hot climate, and the oustanding natural beauty of the white sand islands surrounded by coral reefs.

Many of the islands are uninhabited, and one third of the nation's population lives on the largest island, Male. When it comes to size Male’ would perhaps count as one of the smallest capitals in the world. It is a city of skyscrapers and paved roads. While the government offices are located in one area, the main streets are lined with shops and offices. In Male you would not find any beach, instead it is encircled by seawalls. The city is quite green and pleasant. The streets in the residential areas are shaded with trees, at places forming an arch overhead

The Maldives is a very welcoming and relaxing holiday destination, and the people are warm and friendly. The islands benefit from year round sunshine, but the best time to visit is usually in the dry season between December and April.
