Maldives Weather

You're almost on the equator here, so expect heat on your Maldives holiday! Average temperatures in the Maldives range from 28°C to 30°C with very little variation, and the sun shines uninterrupted all year round. The months of December to May are the driest, with a bit more rain in the rest of the year, but it's still hot; lightweight clothes and sun cream are the order of the day no matter what time of year you take a holiday in the Maldives. Summer peaks early, April seeing the highest temperatures, and December the coolest.

Things To Do on Maldives Holidays

Basically a string of gorgeous coral reefs and islands southwest of Sri Lanka, there are world-class diving and snorkelling opportunities on a Maldives holiday. The capital, Male, is ideally situated in the middle of this island group, affording you the perfect base from which to discover the Maldives - verdant, palm-strewn beaches, 200 uninhabited islands, and fabulous lagoon resorts which redefine the word 'luxury'.

On Male itself, you can visit the white Friday Mosque, built in the 17th Century, take the kids on a trip to the new artificial beach for some watersports, or laze around the many parks that smatter this small capital.

Culture

Come on holidays to Maldives in July and September for the Independence and Republic Day parades - features of both include parades and marches by soldiers and kids alike, and all the paraphernalia of a public holiday, including an eclectic mix of music that gives the lie to the myriad cultures that make up Maldivian life.

The archipelago has seen it's fair share of seafaring visitors, from Portuguese would-be conquerors to Arabian traders, and artefacts from millennia of Maldivian history can be viewed at the splendid National History Museum on Male. A Muslim country since the 12th Century, there are a panoply of events celebrating Islam here, from the traditional Eid celebrations to the Prophet Mohammed's birthday, all replete with music and feasting.

Rather unsurprisingly for an island nation, seafood is the traditional bill of fare here, and succulent tuna can be bought and sampled at the bustling market on Male. For a quieter time, be sure to check out the local market a few minutes away, where you can buy every kind of local produce from homemade fish soup to yams, pickle and fruit, or check out the main shopping area, the Majeedhee Magu, for, well, anything you could think of!
