Known for its quixotic beauty and opulent extravagance, the Maldives emanates a flawless blend of passion and charm which cannot be matched anywhere else.

Although this tropical heaven is pleasant and sunny all year, as it is situated at the equator it experiences two distinct seasons; a dry season (Northeast monsoon period) and a rainy season (Southeast monsoon period). Each season has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
The finest time to visit the Maldives is during the ‘Dry Season’ from December through April, when there is little rain, and the warm tropical climate beckons you to indulge your senses with the best the Maldives has to offer. The high visibility in the sea with its clear waters gives you seamless opportunities to dive and snorkel and partake in a wide array of water sports from jet skiing to wakeboarding, Catamaran sailing, kayaking and sunbathing.
However, this is also the busiest time of year as it is the season, which means many tourists, honeymooners and large crowds are drawn to the Maldives. As a result, the resort accommodation prices are at their peak and booking becomes a hassle. Furthermore, due to the high temperatures, the marine life amid the reefs is less abundant. Nevertheless, as most resorts are perched upon their own private islands, you won’t have to deal with the crowds that you may encounter at another destination during a peak season.
The ‘Rainy Season runs from May through November, with the islands receiving between 5 and 10 inches of rain each month and frequent severe winds. Due to these conditions, the crowds in the Maldives Honeymoon are sure to be less thus ensuring a more personal and exclusive experience for you and your loved one. Moreover, due to this time of year being the off season, visitors are likely to enjoy better bargains and discounted rates. Although the visibility is significantly lower than in the dry season the lower temperatures of the water attract a wide variety of sea life to converge in shallower waters. It is also preferable for any thrill-seekers as the area experiences larger waves and greater surges during this time, making it a dream come true for any enthusiastic surfer daring enough take on the mighty ocean.
