When is the best time to visit the Maldives?

The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April. The climate is warm and tropical, with average highs at a consistent 29°C to 31°C year-round and average lows rarely falling below 24°C.

January to April are the driest months, with little rain and low humidity, making this peak season at the resorts. Temperatures are still warm from May to December, but rain is more likely and there is a risk of storms. However, even during this period there are usually long spells of bright sunshine. Attractive prices and offers mean this is still a common time to visit.

There are only a few places around the world where you can see whale sharks, which is a truly memorable experience, so it's definitely worth visiting the Maldives in October or November.

Visiting the Maldives in October - November

As with the preceding months, warm temperatures and long periods of sunshine are balanced with an increased chance of rain and storms. October and November are a great time to see whale sharks and manta rays, which come to feed on the plankton. There are plenty of great offers to take advantage of at this time of year, making it a great value time to visit.
