The Maldives offers an ideal getaway not just for beach adventures and water sports, but also for some shopping too. The capital Male is the best place for retail therapy, though before beginning your shopping excursions make sure you find accommodation at Maldives island resorts that let you enjoy the very best the country has to offer. Maafushivaru Maldives is amongst such resorts in Maldives and provides an idyllic island getaway where one can have plenty of fun in the sun, sand and surf.

Plan a trip to Male where one will find plenty of shopping opportunities. Majeedhee Magu is one of the most popular places to shop and features a range of items including electronics, clothing and local handicrafts. Not to be missed is a visit to the Chandhani Bazaar which is well known among shopaholics too. There are many items one can look to purchase while on shopping sprees in the Maldives; these include wooden and coral replicas of traditional sailing vessels known as dhonis, ethnic jewellery from countries such as Sri Lanka, traditional reed mats and lacquerware items that have their own distinct quality about them.
