The two seasons
The Maldives goes through a dry and wet season, each with its own benefits for holidaymakers. The dry season begins in December going on until May, is much cooler with less humidity. June to November you will see an increase in humidity with an increase in wind and torrential rains.

Even though Maldives is placed in the tropics the country has rarely faced harsh storms or monsoons and weather never fluctuates into extremes, unlike its neighbours. Within the last 128 years, the islands have only dealt with 11 cyclones.
From snorkelling to parasailing in the Maldives, hotel packages include a variety of activities even extending to speciality activities such as the escape to lover’s paradise found at Adaaran Select Meedhupparu.
