Bandos Island, The Maldives

When to visit (Quick Summary)

Best Time

All Year

Monsoon Season

May - October (wet season)

Beach Season

All Year


All Year (marine life)

January - April

Minimal rain, fantastic hot temperatures and clear blue skies make this one of the best times to visit the Maldives. Sea waters will be calm and clear too, so ideal for sun-seekers and snorkellers alike.

May - September

Don't be put off that May to September is the wet season for the Maldives - it's still a period for travel. Humidity and rain do increase over these months, but as the islands are so low-lying, rain clouds blow over very quickly so rain will only be short lived. Lower traveller numbers and excellent "low season" offers mean its a great time to visit.

October - December

Hot, dry weather returns to the Maldives as the wet season ends in October. Expect long days of brilliant sunshine and temperatures in the high 20°Cs - low 30°Cs. A very popular time to travel.
