Maldives, the sunny side of life is blessed with magical and breathtaking displays of sunshine for the better part of a year. Similar to tropical countries, the Maldives enjoys a dry and wet season. Conveniently, the hot and humid weather is complemented with cooling sea breezes and periodic rain.

The Maldives has a tropical climate with warm temperatures year round and a great deal of sunshine. The warm tropical climate results in relatively minor variations in daily temperature throughout the year.

The weather is determined largely by the monsoons; the southwest monsoon from May to November and the northeast monsoon from December to April.

The Maldives is in the equatorial belt and therefore severe storms are rare.
