When to Visit the Maldives

 

The Maldives has a tropical climate, with warm temperatures throughout the year. However, the dry season from November to April is generally considered the best time to visit Maldives resorts. This period sees less rainfall and more sunshine. The peak tourist season is from December to February.

 

The rainy season runs from May to October. While there is a higher chance of rain during these months, showers are often brief and followed by sunshine. The rainy season is also when the Maldives is less crowded and prices are slightly lower.

 

Getting to and Around the Maldives

 

Flights to the Maldives typically land at Malé International Airport. From there, getting to your resort will involve either a domestic flight, a seaplane transfer, or a speedboat ride.

 

The mode of transport often depends on the distance of the resort from Malé. Resorts closer to Malé typically provide speedboat transfers, while those further away may require a seaplane transfer from Malé airport. Some resorts may also require a combination of domestic flight and speedboat transfer.

  • Facilities and Amenities: Consider what facilities and amenities are important to you. This could include things like a private plunge pool, a spa, water sports facilities, dining options, etc.

  • Reviews and Ratings: Check out reviews and ratings from other travelers to get a sense of the resort's quality and service.
