Weather in the Maldives

Published on 21 August 2019 by Avila Holidays

The Maldives is most well known for its all year long summer weather. But you already know this. If you want to read a bit more about the weather, carry on.

The climate is tropical. The air temperature averages 30 degrees Celsius and the water temperature 28 degrees to 30 degrees Celsius (83 degrees to 86 degrees Fahrenheit). The islands come under two distinct seasons determined by the prevailing winds caused by the cooling and warming of the Asian landmass. The North-Eastern monsoon lasts from December to April. After a short spell of gusting winds, the weather subsides to a balmy breeze. The South Western, prevailing May to October, has clam periods too but these are interspersed with rainy days.
