Maldives Scene Want to make your co-workers insanely jealous? Just casually drop "I’m vacationing in the Maldives this year" into conversation, preferably in the dead of winter. Or better yet, go there without mentioning it to anyone—then send them a "Wish you were here!" postcard.

Climate: The climate in the Maldives is driven by the monsoons; in winter, from November to March, it is hot with light humidity, and in summer, from May to November, there are strong winds with a lot of rain and storms. Between them, there are short but very pleasant periods. The temperature is around 28°C all year round. The best time for visiting the Maldives is definitely between December and April, so it is not by chance that at this time the tourist influence is higher as well as the prices.
