Experience a good meal
Experience the flavors of the islands with the best restaurants offering cuisines such as seafood and Thai.

For a more welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, try the Jazz Café in Malé. If you are near Kandooma, enjoy the sunset view and Asian-inspired dishes at The Kitchen Restaurant.
Part of the intrigue of the Maldives is due to its rich history dating back to the 12th century. To see ancient weapons and artifacts, visit the National Museum in the capital city of Malé. On Kudahuvadhoo Island, you will find ancient mounds and ruins that offer hours of exploratory fun.
Visit a Spa
The extraordinary spa programs of the Maldives Islands are a real treat. Virtually every resort has a spa, and the massages are inspired by the traditional healing practices of the native Hakeembe, or healing experts. While treatments vary by spa, you can find one to suit you, be it a sand massage or one with the gandhakolhi leaf, which is a Maldivian favorite.
