Plenty of sunshine throughout the year ...
The Maldives has a tropical climate with warm temperatures year round and a great deal of sunshine.
There are two main seasons influenced by the monsoon:
The northeast monsoon falls between December and April. This is a period of clear skies, lower humidity and very little rain. The hottest month on average is April and the coolest, December. February is the driest with January to April being relatively dry.
The southwest monsoon from May to September is the wet season. Rougher seas and stronger winds can happen during this period. June and July record generally the highest monthly rainfall.
The Maldives is in the equatorial belt and therefore severe storms and cyclones are extremely rare events. The islands' ideal weather conditions make it a paradise for vacationers and water sports lovers.
