Malé takes up the entire islet of Malé and is the archipelago's largest city. Although the majority of visitors pass quickly through the city on their way to other islands it does have attractions to offer tourists who wish to spend a couple of days here. Narrow streets are lined with colourful houses and the islet has a family-friendly artificial beach.
