Malé

Islands of Peace and Relaxation

In the Maldives, the dream begins even before you arrive, with a natural sight that will leave you speechless: clear, warm waters, white velvety sand, romantic sunsets and breathtaking sunrises, picturesque lagoons surrounded by coral reefs, and stunning underwater coral gardens. Your journey with MSC World Cruise will take you to the banks of these wild and lush atolls, for a holiday filled with peace, relaxation and the gentle sound of the waves.


An MSC Cruises excursion will take you on the discovery of the capital of Maldives, Malé, located on the island with the same name. The town is full of mosques, shops, clubs and markets, the perfect place to try restaurants offering local dishes. Male is perfect for diving into authentic Maldivian life and immersing yourself in the relaxed serene atmosphere that the people, with just a simple smile, are able to convey.
 
During your vacation with MSC Cruises, you will visit the Machangolhi District, the location of the fish and fruit market, and the National Museum. Among the main attractions of the city, there is also Sultan Park, a huge park which contains the oldest tree in the entire capital. In front of this beautiful garden, you can also have a look at the largest mosque in Malé, able to accommodate up to five thousand people.

Your MSC Cruises excursion will continue with the most beautiful characteristic activities of the Maldives: scuba diving and searching for shipwrecks. With their position in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the crystal clear waters of these islands have become a natural aquarium that offers rich marine life. You only need to put on a mask and snorkel to admire manta rays, moray eels, colorful fish, dolphins, sharks and turtles. There will also be the hours spent in the sun on the soft white sands of the wonderful and unique Maldives.

    Diving in the clear waters of coral atolls
    Diving in the clear waters of coral atolls

    From the seaplane these islands look like small white pearls glinting in the sun.

    The Maldives, located in the warm Indian Ocean, are made up of a cluster of atolls, bordered by a coral reef that forms a spectacular lagoon. 


    This unusual composition makes the crystal clear water inside the barrier, with its abundance of colourful fish, stingrays and small sharks, truly inviting to dive into and enjoy the pleasant temperatures and “on hand” aquarium. The islands are small, easily visited on foot in just a few minutes, and on many of them dream resorts with water villas (small houses/rooms on the water) have been built; the other islands, however, are home to fishing villages with typical houses with thatched roofs. 


    The capital is Male, located on the island of the same name. The town is home to craft markets, shops, restaurants and mosques – the majority of the population are Sunni Muslims. A visit to the lush Sultan Park is must, where you will find the oldest tree in the city.
