Top 3 Places to Party in Male

Pronounced as Mah-lay, Malé is occasionally dismissed by travellers as a mere transit destination with "nothing to do". Though the strict rules of the isle indeed make it a dull case for a party place, this city is brimming with narrow streets, colourful houses, a strong communal feel and graffiti, basically all that makes it one of the most interesting places to stop, observe, and soak in the atmosphere. The focal point of a plethora of cafes, restaurants and pool sides hotels, this pint sized Maldivian capital of Malé is a hive of activity overlooked by tall, brightly coloured building and surrounded by incongruously turquoise waters. Along with some pleasingly quirky alcohol-free cafes and restaurants coupled with shops and lively markets, the island city may not be home to a huge number of sights, but one thing that you won’t feel here is the lack of uniqueness.

So if thought about it, the lack of alcohol is enough to drown the party spirit for most people, but one thing that Malé has is its unique general hubbub that no other place has the audacity to raise a candle to. To help you surf through the good regions in the place to party, here is the list of the few places that will take you to the 'forbidden' fun:

1. Alif-Alif Atoll

Geographically the westernmost island of the Atoll, Alif-Alif Atoll is the second most westerly inhabited island. An administrative division of the Maldives, this is one of the most beautiful parts of the country in its entirety. Inhabited since the ancient times, this island is one of the focal point of the archaeological remains from the Maldivian Buddhist period, making it one of the most culturally rich places in the vicinity. After you spend your day in the proximity of such wealth, this neighbourhood puts on an entirely different garb in the night. One of the few places that will find the presence of alcohols, it hosts some of the major bars in the region including Thundi Bar, Atollo Maldive Alif-Alif, Pool Bar, Sand Bank, Kuramathi Island, Laguna Bar, Constance Moofushi Maldives, Beach Bar, Boashi Bar and Sand Bar. However, if you are one of those gourmand souls that seek nothing beyond good food for a great night out, the best option to try local cuisines would be W Maldives.

2. Alif Dhaal Atoll

The sibling region of the Alif-Alif Atoll, Alif Dhaal Atoll is the southern section of the division of separation of the Ari Atoll, lying in lines along the channels of the Genburugau Kandu and Himendhoo Dhekunukandu. One of the most elemental landmarks in the region is the beautiful ancient mosque in Fenfushi Island, known in the region for the wooden decorated ceiling and beautiful lacquerwork panels; this is another place where you can find the spurt of Buddhist remains along with stupa. Though there are no bars in the region, the lack of booze doesn't mean that the nightlife in the region is dead. Some of the most famous restaurants in the region include Muraka Restaurant, Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Sunset Grill, Mandhoo Spa Restaurants, Hermit's Vilu restaurant and Bar, Rangali Bar, Reef and Quiet Zone.

3. North Male Atoll

A world developed for the travel bugs visiting this place, North Male Atoll is the place for tourism in the Male region. The place constitutes of several tiny single-island atolls of the Gaafuru Falhu and Kaashidhoo located in the northern region. Despite the fact that Male is the capital of Maldives, the North Male Atoll is considered to be its administrative district. With a wide plethora of charming islands boasting a profusion of hotels, guesthouses and beaches, this is one place that gives you a chance to witness everything. Some of the best bars in the region include B4R, Reef Bar, Anchorage Bar, Kandolhu Resort, Embudu Village, Raiyvila Sunset Terrace Bar, and Constance Hotels and Resorts Maldives Airport Lounge.
