What time of year is best to visit the Maldives?

The Maldives is famous for being “80/80/80” year-round, meaning it’s 80 degrees, 80% humidity, and 80-degree ocean water the whole year. The driest season runs from November-May, but this is also peak season for tourists, meaning not only are the resorts usually at 100% capacity, but the prices are twice as high as the rest of the year. And, since The Maldives are so popular during the high season, make sure you are booking well in advance if you’re traveling then. Most people are scared away from the Maldives’ “wet” season, but, after experiencing 10 straight days of sunshine, and 2 partly cloudy days with the occasional rain squall blowing through,it seems like no matter what time of year you visit the Maldives, you could get incredible weather, or rain, it’s kind of random! Our advice is to book your trip when it works for you, and hope for the best! As rain or no rain, the resorts have plenty of things to do, from wine tastings and cooking classes, to games and movies, and lots of good food.

So, prepare yourself for a variety of activities on and under the water when you travel to the Maldives on our Maldives package. While newlyweds may relax on the immaculate white sand beaches and enjoy in exotic couple treatments, adventurers can also partake in a variety of Maldives water activities So let the partygoers enjoy themselves at the underwater bars while the shopaholics purchase one-of-a-kind seashell souvenirs from the vibrant street markets.
