The Maldives is a collection of gorgeous islands that are surrounded by the stunning turquoise ocean. It is home to some of the most glamorous resorts that you’ll find anywhere on the planet. A Maldives holiday offers something for everyone, there are beautiful sandy beaches, sailing, diving, sightseeing and even surfing to entice the entire family. For those who love the sun and want to experience what is often considered to be the best of Maldives weather, it is generally best to visit from December to February, which is the sunniest part of the year and also high season. There should be lots of sun, blue skies and low humidity at this time of year.
However, any time is a good time to visit the Maldives, as temperatures remain warm all year round. From March to April, which is still a popular period, you are heading into the hottest part of the year, and the surfing season begins in March too. A Maldives package holiday will probably cost a little less at this time, though prices can rise at Easter. Both February and March are considered to be excellent months for scuba diving as the visibility is very good.
May to November is considered to be the low season, although the weather is still lovely and warm. Maldives weather may feature the occasional storm or rain, but resorts offer their lowest prices at this time of year. Scuba divers may also see a greater variety of marine life at this time of year too. The Maldives celebrate Independence Day on July 26 each year, so if you like parades and local festivities then that is a date to put in your holiday calendar.
