The Maldives is blessed with some of the best beaches on the planet but did you know there is a popular beach that has been created by human hands? It’s time you learned more about the aptly named Artificial Beach in Maldives!
This beach can be found in the country’s capital island, Male and is walking distance from the airport. While you may be based at the best all inclusive resorts in Maldives which are on different islands, properties including those of Adaaran Maldives do offer excursions to Male where you can visit this beach.
What to Expect
The Artificial Beach in Male has been made through the use of breakwater tetrapods and the resulting crescent-shaped stretch of shore is a great spot to unwind, have a relaxed stroll or just take in magical sunsets. Since the waters are not deep, it’s an ideal spot for some swimming too.
Other Things to Do
Apart from offering water sports, this beach which is popular amongst locals as well has become well-known for entertainment too be it for watching music shows or cultural activities. There are also cafes and other dining options nearby for when hunger strikes!
Since Male is relatively small, you can easily combine a visit to the Artificial Beach with some sightseeing too. Popular attractions include the 17th century Old Friday Mosque, the more modern Grand Friday Mosque, the National Museum, the National Art Gallery and the lively Fish Market.
