North Male atoll (upper sector)
Ultimate guide (August 2018)
is the far end of the North Male Atoll in Maldives. There is no noise from the airport, but transport accessibility is still very convenient. Local inhabited islands are rather mediocre, though occasional good beaches are available. As for the island resorts
, these are pretty good, but most of them are below the average level by the Maldivian standards. Shore and seabed: sand, stones.  Find hotels in Upper sector

There are only four island resorts with good beaches - Reethi Rah, Meeru, Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi and Four Seasons Kuda Huraa. The rest options can be recommended only in case of significant discounts.
All of the local islands are rather mediocre. And only Thulusdhoo island has some kind of a good beach. Find hotels in Upper sector
