Maldives Weather in April - The Perfect Time to Experience the Tropical Island
April is the summer month in Maldives. The temperature in Maldives in April soar to 31 degrees Celsius during the day and drops to a pleasant 27 degrees Celcius at night. To beat the heat, tourists prefer to spend maximum time lazing at the beach. The calm tides during April are also splendid for snorkelling in the Maldives and other water activities. However, the rainfalls are uneven and unpredictable but are not a deterrent as they don't last very long. A total of 132mm of rain occurs in the entire nation, concentrated mostly in the southern islands.
Things to Do in Maldives in April
Even though the main objective of any tourist visiting the archipelago is to try water sports, the blend of sunny and rainy Maldives weather in April proves even more meritorious for feasting the water. Banana Reef and Manta Point, the two eminent diving spots, are full of travellers adorning their snorkelling gears and waiting for their turns to go dive in the mystical sea. The kaleidoscopic underwater world is full of sponges, coral reefs, turtles, reef sharks, manta rays and shoals of small colourful fishes. The cyan blue waters are translucent enough to spot these treasures while canoeing or paddleboarding on the surface too. Towards the end of the month, when the water starts cooling down, and the tide gets calmer, shark diving and dolphin spotting get in demand.
The clear skies in the night are excellent for snuggling in your love's arms and watching a movie while lying on the soft sandy beach. Outdoor cinemas are organised by some of the resorts, especially for couples. It is also a great time to have beachside luncheons or dine under the starlit sky by the shore when the sky mirrors the galaxies.
The fine weather also favours those seeking to explore the archipelago by island hopping. Cruises and speedboats are available for touring around the islands and provide fantastic seascapes of the sunset.
What to Pack?
The tropical climate of Maldives demand loosely-fitted lightweight clothes that can soak perspiration quickly. So, carry clothes made of cotton and linen.
The UV rays during this time of the year are very harmful, hence, apply plenty of sunblocks to protect your skin.
Carry mosquito repellants.
With deep-sea diving, dolphin watching, sunset cruising, beachside luncheons to keep you occupied all day, you will be creating a lifetime of memories here. However, be updated about the weather forecast each day. And, while travelling to the scintillating island nation, do keep in mind the general Maldives safety and tips to make your holiday the best ever!
