So what really is the best season to visit the Maldives?
Truth be told, Maldives is a pretty awesome place to travel all year round with almost 365 days of sunshine… You’re probably thinking “shut up and take my money!!!” right? Well while the sun is all shiny and bright, there are a couple months that might not live up to your total expectations.

The Maldives monsoon seasons are from May to October and it peaks in June, so we do advise you to think twice… but hey if you’re going anyway, the resorts will have you all cozied up while the weather gods continue their showers. Oh keep in mind that December to April also you might experience some showers…

In case you do travel during one of these months, there’s always the Spa! Oh yes, the Spas in Maldives are the Bomb! (no not literally)… If it’s some “me time” you want, these award winning spas will rejuvenate you and relax you so tight that you might forget which year this is.. Lol!

The rainy season in Maldives is not that bad honestly. You can do many activities like experience amazing cuisine from award winning chefs, get involved in a local CSR project (you know to be a guilt free of your holiday). Speak to your resort and they’ll have a list of things before you could even blink. Or there’s always a good bartender who will keep those drinks coming… nothing to be concerned about, I mean you “are” on holiday…
