Flying to Maldives in February is usually considered the best time to fly. However, you will find other deals are always available year round. If you are looking for warm weather when you arrive off of your flight to Maldives then January is statistically the hottest. September is historically the period with most rainfall.

As you kick your feet through the warm white sand, a school of colourful fish skim past while dolphins greet you on your way out of the water. In the distance a hammock sways in the wind, patiently awaiting your return. The sun warms you while the cool breeze invigorates you. At that moment, time stands still. This is just another day in paradise – in the Maldives.

Located close to Sri Lanka and the south of India, this tiny group of atolls in the middle of the Indian Ocean has been attracting travellers, particularly honeymooners, to book flights to the Maldives in search of a perfect escape. Luxury resorts on each island offering the highest standards of accommodation, pampering to make you feel like a king, and some of the best diving in the world.

Beyond getting some serious relaxation while visiting, most activities are centred around the turquoise blue sea. Eco friendly tourists taking flights to the Maldives will find untouched coral reefs and ship wrecks to explore. And besides the spectacular diving, whale and dolphin watching, surfing and fishing are all great activities. But if you find yourself itching for some city life, Male, the capital has plenty to keep you busy.

Maldives climate

Very sunny year round, however, the Maldives are very humid too. From November to March the northeast monsoon brings dry weather, while the southwest monsoon brings rain between June and August. Temperatures average 30 degrees throughout the year.

When is the best time to fly to Maldives?

Peak Season:

Between December and April. Christmas and New Year is the most popular – and expensive – time to book Maldives flights.

Off Season:

Between May and November, the weather is less guaranteed with cloudy skies, higher humidity and greater chance of rain. Ramadan falls in the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and marks 30 days of fasting. Independence Day is July 26 and is marked by marches by the armed forces, traditional dances performed by school children and processions.

Shoulder Season:

November and April. These months are popular with divers because the water is clearer and there is greater visibility. Republic Day is celebrated on November 11.

Getting around Maldives

Trans Maldivian Airways and Maldivian Air Taxi (PTE) Ltd offer inter-island Maldives flights. Boat is unsurprisingly the most popular way to get around. There is a ferry service from the airport island to Male, the capital. The main form of local transport is a dhoni, a traditional vessel, and for longer trips vedis (larger boats) are used. 

What is good to know if travelling to Maldives?

  • The Maldives is very popular with divers and snorkellers due to the warm temperatures, high levels of visibility and sheer richness of sea life. Some of the top-rated dive sites are Girifushi Thila (for experienced divers), Nassimo Thila, Middle Point and Okobe Thila. There is also the Maldives Victory dive (for experienced divers). The Victory was a cargo vessel that sank in 1981. The dive descends 12 metres (39 feet) and the sunken ship is home to several species of marine life including tuna, groupers and turtles. Scuba diving, surfing, fishing, dolphin and whale watching are other popular pursuits.
  • Male, the capital, is just 1.24 miles long and less than a mile wide. It has no natural beach, but the artificial beach is a popular spot with the locals, especially on a Friday. The Old Friday Mosque (Hukuru Miskiy) was built in 1656 and houses the tombs of royalty and national heroes. Much newer, the Islamic Centre, with its beautiful gold dome, dates from 1984. It is the Maldives’ biggest mosque. Sultan Park, the public garden, is home to the Presidential Palace and National Museum. Republic Square is where the flag of the Maldives flies, the largest flag in the country. The square is where many locals go to relax and children to play.
  • Male has a couple of lively shopping streets. Majeedhee Magu is Male’s main road and has popular shops that stay open until 11pm. For souvenirs, go to Chaandanee Magu. For a taste of local life, the Local Market and Male’ Fish Market are must-visits.
  • Traveller tips: the Maldives is a Muslim country, alcohol is available only in resorts and you are not allowed to bring it into the country with you. Travellers should dress modestly (covering thighs and upper body), but the resort islands are more relaxed.
