Holidays in the Maldives at different times of the year
I will begin with the joyful news that having a rest in the Maldives, unlike the beaches of Miami, will be pleasant at any time of the year. Since the Maldives is an island country in South Asia, located near the equator in the atolls of the Maldives archipelago, summer is here all year round.
Due to the unique equatorial climate, the air temperature here all year round is comfortable for rest – during the day, on average +30 ° С, at night +25 ° С, and the sea temperature is +27 ° С. The popularity of this resort is also added by the fact that for a holiday in the Maldives with a duration of less than 30 days, there is no need to make a visa, and there are no annoying insects that are typical of most tropical countries.

The rainiest month in the Maldives is September. It rains every other day, the weather often changes. And the driest and the sunny month is February, no more than 5-7 cloudy days.
The warmest water in the sea in the Maldives in April (+30 ° C). At this time it is most pleasant to sunbathe on the beaches and swim.
There is no strong wind in the Maldives, and this is a big plus. In summer and in winter a pleasant sea breeze blows, which is pleasantly refreshing.
The main difference between the weather in the seasons is that it is slightly hotter in summer than in winter. And from May to September in the Maldives the height of the wet monsoon season, so it is overcast, and it rains (but not every day and not for long). Therefore, it is better to sunbathe on the beach in winter, and in the summer it’s time to come to the retreat, practice yoga or diving, and go for a massage or a spa.
