There’s really no one-size-fits-all answer for when you should start looking at a Maldives resort, as it depends on personal preference. The island nation is warm and sunny all year round, but there is a wet and a dry season. Of course, there are pros and cons to each one.
Between the months of November and April, there’s very little precipitation, and the temperatures are warm. It’s ideal for sunbathers and those looking to relax by the beach, sipping on an ice-cold beverage. However, one drawback is that, during those months, there’s a pretty high volume of tourists.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for lower prices and ideal scuba-diving conditions, consider going between May and October. The reefs during this period are majestic, with colours and sea life rarely seen elsewhere. There are brief periods of heavy rainfall, but the storms usually move quickly through the archipelago. When it’s not raining, the Maldives see the ideal 26°C weather.
