North Male Atoll Overview

The Maldives is made up of many atolls (groups of islands) and the North Male Atoll is part of the larger Kaafu Atoll, and is home to the country's capital, Male, although the administrative capital of Kaafu is Thulusdhoo, not Male.

The total population of the 107 islands making up the Kaafu Atoll is just under 10,000, because only 9 are inhabited!

There are about 58 hotels in the North Male Atoll alone, and I'm guessing they aren't included in the inhabited islands! They range from the top of the range One&Only Reethi Rah, Banyan Tree and Huvafen Fushi to more budget places like Athama Palace, Relax Inn Hotel and Central Hotel.

The diving in the Maldives is supposed to be wonderful, but from what I saw near Reethi Rah it wasn't as good as near Kanahura.
