The Maldives has a tropical monsoon climate with two dominating seasons. Deciding when to visit depends on what you'll like to do as both have their pros and cons.

If you want to escape the crowds, the best time to visit the Maldives is from May to November. While there is some rain, the storms move quickly and won't ruin an entire day. This period is also low season for the islands. Prices at resorts will be at their lowest and crowds to a minimum.

It's also a great time of year for divers and surfers. You'll be able to catch the best waves, and the reefs are teeming with a variety of marine life. The colder water temperatures also attract good numbers of hammerhead and reef sharks.

High season falls from December to April. The Maldives is drier during this time with less humidity and warmer temperatures. It's ideal weather for spending the day at the beach and soaking up the sun. But it's also the most expensive time of year to visit the islands, and while visibility is clearer the marine life is less plentiful.

It's also important to keep in mind that the Maldives is an Islamic country. During Ramadan, shops closer earlier and you won't be able to drink or eat in public on the inhabited islands.
