WHEN TO GO TO THE MALDIVES

Hot all year round, the Maldives can be enjoyed at any time of the year. It has a beautiful tropical climate and the best of the best time to visit is our winter between October - April. The south-west monsoon, traditionally between May - September, brings a little more frequent tropical rainfall but is one of the most popular times to visit. Our favourite months to visit are May and September, which fall in low season and offer remarkable value, but still endless days of sunshine.
