The magnificent Maldives offers excellent flexibility for travel due to its temperate weather conditions. Depending on what kind of vacation you seek, from a luxurious romantic escape to a family get-together, the Maldives offers an all-year-round warm, tropical climate that makes planning your holiday very easy.
Located on either side of the equator, the Maldives has annual temperatures between 25°c and 31°c with rainfall, humidity, and sunshine variations from month to month. We’ve put together a guide about the best time to visit the Maldives.
January to April
January to April is the best time to go to the Maldives, as these are the months with minimal rain and humidity. January has plenty of sunshine, making it an ideal time for you to plan a beach holiday. The crystal-clear water plays a perfect host to snorkelers and divers. April is an excellent time to travel, given the good amount of sunshine and water visibility, but there may be chances of rain towards the end of the month. The blue skies and warm sunny days with clear and calm seas make this peak season at most resorts; hence you should book one of the Maldives travel packages in advance.
May to September
Despite being the season for rainfalls and storms, the temperatures from May to December in the Maldives are still warm. The long spells of bright sunshine allow you to indulge in beach lounging and water sports. Humidity and rain increase over these months, but the rain will usually be short-lived. As a tourist, you may find May to September the best time to travel to the Maldives due to the added advantage of the ‘low-season’ offers in most resorts. The fewer travelers and excellent offers with attractive prices provide you with the benefit of finding utmost peace and a great Maldives experience through some great travel deals on flights and resorts.
October to December
Though there is an increased chance of rains and thunderstorms in October and November, it still brings back tourists to the Maldives, thanks to warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. If you are interested in diving and snorkeling, this is the best season to visit the Maldives to see whale sharks and manta rays that come to feed on the plankton. Towards the end of October, you can expect the hot and dry weather to return to the Maldives with long hours of warm sunshine and temperatures ranging from 25°Cs – 35°Cs. You can take advantage of the many great offers on flights and accommodation during these months. December is the best month to visit the Maldives since the hotels continue with the offers in the first two weeks. Just before Christmas, you will find a peak in the rates and the number of travelers due to the Christmas holidays. You must book in advance if you plan to travel to Maldives during your Christmas holidays.
The warm and tropical climate from December to April is the best time to visit the Maldives for a honeymoon. Take a moonlit stroll with your partner in the shallow lapping waves of a beach, head for a romantic sunset cruise, or take a jetty to see the bright blue, glowing traces of the bioluminescence.
With consistent temperatures from 29°C to 31°C year-round and average lows rarely falling below 24°C, the Maldives is ever ready to welcome you.
