The islands of the Maldives boast a sunny, tropical climate, with consistently warm temperatures throughout the year ranging between 24°C and 31°C. Peak tourist season falls between January and April, which is also the driest period with minimal rain and humidity. This is the ultimate time for a beach escape, and with great visibility beneath the waves, a wonderful opportunity to experience the country’s dazzling marine life.
Rain and storms are more probable between May and December, and the presence of plankton does have an impact on diving visibility. Don’t be completely put off travelling however, as temperatures remain nice and warm and you can still expect some sunshine. What’s more, you can take advantage of low season prices and offers.
