North Male
North Malé Atoll is the principal atoll of the Maldives and includes Malé, the country’s capital. The administrative capital of North Malé Atoll, however, is Thulusdoo, located on the east side of the atoll. With a population of around 1200, Thulusdoo is well known for its industry in traditional drums and salted fish as well as a budding surf scene. The local islands of Huraa and Himmafushi are popular spots for resorts organising excursions for their guests; both offering an array of shops where visitors can acquire souvenirs.

North Malé Atoll is also home to the country’s principal airport in Hullhulé, the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE). The international terminal is well connected to most parts of the world and the seaplane terminal allows visitors to be taken directly to their resorts in many cases. Some resort islands are close enough to the airport for transfers to be made by traditional dhoanis, but those more distant ones usually use speedboats and seaplanes to save time.
