Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The Maldives has a tropical climate distinguished by two seasons, or monsoons: the dry northeast monsoon from December to March, and the wet southwestern monsoon from May to November, with more strong winds and rain. April is a transitional period noted for clear water and heat. The temperature remains remarkably consistent at around 30°C.

February to April is the hottest period and resorts are almost all operating at capacity during this period. Mid-December to early January comes at even more of a premium due to Christmas and New Year and prices are even higher. Easter and the Italian vacation week in August also attract peak prices at most resorts.

Storms are more likely from May to November, though it’s still warm, skies can be cloudy and the humidity is higher. This is the low season, with fewer people and lower prices, with the exception of August.

Diving is good year-round, although a basic rule is that life on the reef is more varied and visibility better on the western side of any atoll from May to November and from the eastern side of any atoll December to April.

The surfing season runs from March to October, which is when resorts are cheapest.

Insider's View

The signature restaurant, Mosaic, served some of the best food I tasted on my last trip, pretty European, but excellently cooked and beautifully served, just like being in one of London’s top restaurants.

Susie Reynolds (Staff)

We brought on Zitahli as another cheaper alternative to some of the more expensive properties in the Maldives. The best thing about this island is the vast amount of personal space you get with each villa and the beautiful long beach, which greets you on arrival. The design of the resort is mature and chic, feeling very calm throughout. When we were there they were practically full, yet we saw very few other guests during our stay so its not essentially somewhere to be hugely social, more somewhere to lock yourself and enjoy your villa. There are noticeable differences in paying less for such a resort, but as a result, as value for money goes, this is a super option.
