Weather in the Maldives - Best time to visit from November to April
Two monsoon systems dominate the weather pattern of the Maldives, and bring both a rainy and dry season each year. The northeast monsoon occurs from November to April, creating the dry season, and calm sunny days. This is the busy tourist season, with visitors enjoying temperatures that range from 25°C - 29°C, and gentle coastal breezes that help to temper the humidity. March and April are the hottest months, when temperatures can reach up to 32°C. November and April are the recommended months for divers, with the best underwater clarity and vision.

Maldives weather - Rainy season running from May to October
The southwest monsoon brings the rainy season, and typically runs from May to October. During this time the Maldives see strong winds, torrential rain and rough seas, with conditions peaking between June and September. Throughout the rainy season, however, there are still plenty of sunny days and the temperatures remain high, rarely dropping below 25°C. The Maldives see very little variation in temperatures and length of days even as the seasons change, with the major factor being the increase in rainfall. Rain can fall any time during the year, however showers in the tourist season usually being short-lived.
