Top Places to Visit in the Maldives - Oh, the unstoppable beauty!

The Maldives is home to many amazing things, from its food, scenery and serene atmosphere. Let's look at some of the best places to visit in the Maldives.

1

Male Artificial Beach

While it boasts an array of natural wonder with some of the world's most breathtaking beaches, Maldives also showcases an artificial beach that has been constructed in Male. It offers the best getaway for anyone in the city as Male itself doesn't have its own natural beach. The artificial beach has gained wide popularity across all locals and tourists. It currently hosts many recreational activities like carnivals, parades, live musical performances and a whole array of water sports.

Mulee-Aage Palace

Located beside the Old Friday Mosque, this impressive, powerful and historic landmark, is the official residence of the President of the Maldives. The Mulee Aage Palace dates all the way back to 1906 when Sultan Mohamed Shamsuddeen III erected this gorgeous complex for this son. The palace is still one of the most attractive locations for tourists not just because it is the Presidential residence but also due to the intricate carvings done on its white walls. While you complete your tour of the Maldives and its must-see locations, if you're looking for accommodation at any Resorts, Maldives has plenty to choose from, such as the Maldives Resorts Club for instance.

Islamic Centre

This is one of the most iconic and magnificent architectural landmarks in Male, the capital city of the Maldives. The Islamic Centre is home to many buildings such as the Grand Friday Mosque, an Islamic library as well as a conference hall. The Islamic Centre has become a major tourist attraction as of recent, especially due to its impressive architecture, shining golden dome, intricate woodcarvings found on its interior walls as well the centre's close proximity to the Male main jetty.

National Museum

There's no better way to absorb all of the cultural history in the Maldives without visiting the National Museum of Maldives. You'll learn the diverse history of the Island through its display of ancient weapons, household wares, religious relics and impeccably carved Arabic and Thaana engraved wood. All which make up some of these fine exhibits. The building housing the National Museum is itself a relic, having been a part of the Maldivian Royal Palace dating all the way back to the 17th Century.

Jumhooree Maidan

Jumhoorie Maidan is the Independence Square in Male and makes for an absolutely perfect location for a stroll. This park is highly popular amongst the locals as a spot for social gatherings within the island. Towards the eastern end of the park, you will find the largest permanent flag in the Maldives affixed to the official flag post making this a place of national importance as well.

Malé Friday Mosque

Hukuru Miskiiy, also known as the Old Friday Mosque, is the oldest mosque in all of Maldives. It is located in the capital and dates back to 1656. Constructed under the reign of Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar I using Coral stone, it is a fine specimen of ancient Maldivian art and sculpture. It also contains gorgeous carvings featuring different patterns as well as Arabic scripts.
