Maldives Weather



The weather in the Maldives is exactly what you expect from your tropical paradise. Pleasant temperatures all year round, characterized by two main weather conditions in the Maldives; the dry season (between end of October until end of March), brought about by the northeast winter monsoon, and the rainy season (between end of April and end of October), caused by the southwest summer monsoon.

The Maldives is best known for its perfect holiday weather, whether you’re searching for liveaboard cruises round the Maldives, or that perfect scuba diving trip deep into the Indian Ocean. As the ideal location for such holiday destinations, the Maldives weather in winter is ideal for European travellers, as that is when the weather in Europe is rather cold and unpleasant.

Moreover, in the traditional “summer months” the Maldives weather retains its pleasantly enjoyable temperatures, however with the added certainty of rainfall. As you would expect from the rainy season in the Maldives, strong winds and heavy rain showers occur more than often, and can last anywhere from a couple of hours to several days at a time. The rainy season in the Maldives lasts from the end of April until mid-October whereby the average temperature fluctuates between 27 and 33 degrees. With regards to the rainfall in the Maldives, the yearly average lies at around 2,540 millimetres in the North, and 3,810 millimetres in the south of Maldives.

The dry season is prime time to visit the Maldives, when the weather is ideal for simply lazing on the beach, or diving in and around the hot spots in the Maldives. The moist transition occurs around the end of November, which culminates in northeast monsoon and a relaxing dry spell until the end of March. The water temperature in Maldives never drops below 25 degrees, and with the average sunshine surpassing 8 hours in a day, it is difficult not to enjoy the blissful weather conditions.
