The best time to visit the Maldives is during the dry season from December to April. The dry season is characterised by the bright sun, clear skies, calm sea and only sporadic rainfall at times, thus making it the ideal time for sunbathing, scuba diving and snorkelling. This time tends to be relatively more expensive owing to peak season.
The Maldives with its sun-kissed beaches is a tropical island that witnesses a dry spell, 'Iruvai', between December - April and a wet spell, Hulhangu, from May - November. There is a negligible change in temperature amidst the two seasons.
Surfing enthusiasts should head to the Maldives during the monsoon from late February - Mid-November, with the best time being March to May, when there is torrential rainfall, and the seas are rough. There are occasional bright days as well. Budget travellers can visit during this time since resorts offer attractive packages and offers.
