Maldives in November - The Best Time to Visit Maldives

November is one of the best months to visit Maldives. You can expect dry, sunny days and clear blue skies in Maldives in November. Since it is the end of the wet season with short rainy days, the weather conditions remain appropriate during mid-day with around 27 degrees celsius, which can soar up to 29 degrees celsius. As the water begins to clear up, it becomes the perfect time for scuba diving or snorkelling. However, since November is the peak tourist season in Maldives, prices are generally high during this time.

Things to Do in the Maldives in November

1. Snorkelling and Scuba diving

The warm, clear waters of Maldives give one of the best diving experiences in the world. The tropical islands of the archipelagic nation bracketed by coral reefs and white sands offer breathtaking views along with exotic marine life. The Maldives offers two types of scuba diving holidays, either a resort with private boat diving or an all-inclusive liveaboard boat. 

2. House Reef Diving

House reef diving is a reef close to or surrounding an island resort that provides better snorkelling and diving experiences. The Maldives island itself has around 2500 reefs out of which 900 are house reefs. The main benefit of house reef diving is that you can directly explore the reefs by just going into the water without a boat. A few of the best house reefs in the Maldives are Baros Maldives (2.5 Mile reef), Reethi beach resort, Mirihi Island resort, Lily beach resort, and Bathala island resorts.

3. Liveaboards

This is also a great way to explore the marine beauty of Maldives by visiting multiple diving sites and not just one. Liveaboards are all-inclusive, which means, they include meals, accommodation, and multiple dives in a day supervised by the best dive instructors. Liveaboard ships are available for a week, but you can also book for a longer period which is available throughout the year. There are multiple liveaboard ships available according to your budget, such as The Emperor Maldives which has six boats, The MV Queen and Blue force one.

4. Private Sandbank Picnic 

The Private Sandban Picnic is a unique experience in Maldives to witness beautiful sandbanks through a private boat. With a view of coral reefs and white sandbanks, the ocean would provide you with a great picnic spot along with complimentary snorkelling experiences. 

5. Traditional Dhoni Sunset Cruise

The sunset cruise is one of the most highlighted aspects of Maldives. If you are on the Traditional Dhoni Sunset Cruise, you will stand a chance to witness the most beautiful sunset over the Indian ocean.
