Best Time to Visit

Featured in Maldives Travel Guide by Jaya Travel & Tours, this image shows various islands in a row surrounded by dark blue ocean.

The best time to visit the Maldives is during the dry northeast monsoon season, which typically spans from November to April. This period, marked by clear skies, lower humidity, and calm seas, is ideal for enjoying the Maldives’ stunning beaches, outdoor activities, and water sports, with excellent conditions for snorkeling and diving.

While the wet southwest monsoon from May to October brings occasional rainfall and higher humidity, the Maldives remains a year-round destination, and even during these months, you can still experience periods of sunshine.
