What's the best time to go to the Maldives?

When it comes to planning your holiday, you want the best of everything. You want the most luxurious resorts on pristine white sand beaches, you want crystal clear waters and a tropical climate all year round.

The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April, outside of the monsoon season. This is when you’ll find the most comfortable weather and calm water conditions. We recommend staying during March and April (excluding the Easter holidays when pricing is more expensive), as this is when you can expect to see some of the best sunrises.


Best time to go diving

The best time to go diving in the Maldives is between March and August. During this period, visibility is excellent and there are more species of fish to see. You’ll also have an easy time finding whale sharks between November and May. They congregate in small groups during these months, making it easier for you to get close enough for pictures.

Manta rays can be seen year-round but they’re most abundant between April and October. This makes sense since those are the months when plankton blooms occur—the main staple of their diet!

Family fun! If you’re looking to enjoy the Maldives with your family, then the best time is from November through April. The weather is warm and dry and the sea is calmest during this period. The water temperature also remains at a comfortable level for snorkeling and swimming. If you have young children, it is worth keeping in mind that November through April can be very windy; however, this can be a great way to get them interested in kite surfing or sailing!

The months of May, June and July are cooler but still dry enough for swimming. This makes it an excellent time for snorkeling near reefs as well as exploring uninhabited islands by boat or kayak (with due regard for current weather conditions). You should also keep in mind that these months tend towards being rather busy with visitors so if privacy is important then go somewhere off-season instead! Finally there may be some unpleasant rain showers which could ruin any plans made around sightseeing during this time – they usually last only half an hour but sometimes longer so beware!

Best time to go surfing

If you want to go surfing, the best time of year is between November and April. These months are also dryer than other seasons and have less waves, making it easier to catch one. If you’re looking for more challenging conditions then May through October is your best bet. These months tend to be windy but the weather is still warm enough that you don’t need wetsuits or booties.

Honeymoons: There is no doubt that the Maldives is one of the most romantic destinations in the world, and you should definitely plan to spend some quality time with your loved ones there. The Maldives offers everything you need for a romantic holiday, including great weather conditions and stunning sunsets. Couples can enjoy activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving and water sports together at their resort or private island. If you want to spice things up or keep your relationship fresh after many years together, then why not consider taking a trip somewhere else instead?

Easter holidays in the Maldives

Easter holidays in the Maldives are very busy and you will need to book your holiday well in advance. It’s also worth noting that prices are higher during this period. If you do want to go for Easter, try not to go during Holy Week itself as this is when a lot of people are on holiday from work or school. The weather is usually good at this time of year – it’s warm enough for swimming but not too hot that you can’t enjoy yourself outside. The Maldives has a warm climate all year round but November to April is generally considered the best period. The Maldives is a tropical country with a hot and humid climate all year round. The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April when temperatures are still warm at around 26°C (78°F). However, if you prefer to spend your holiday in cooler weather, then you can also visit during March or April as temperatures will be lower at around 24°C (75°F).
