Best time to grab resort deals
December to April is the dry season, so tourists flock to the beaches. It is the peak season, so the accommodation rates skyrocket. If you desire to see Maldives and weather is not an issue then choose wet months. From May to November, the humidity level is high because of heavy rains. The prices of resorts and hotels significantly drop, so your chances to grab a great deal increase!
Best time to surf
July is great for surfing enthusiasts because they can expect the biggest swells—-generally around 3 to 8 ft. From April to October, the incoming waves are best, so this is a perfect time for surfers to visit the archipelagic nation.
Best time to snorkel and scuba dive
Divers can enjoy wet and dry seasons but for great visibility, dry seasons are best. In November, the seasonal ocean currents flow from the northeast, which weakens in water. The flat sea offers a great opportunity to spot the manta rays, parrotfish, white sharks, barracudas, sea turtles, and tunas.
In the wet season, the water temperature is low and there are no currents. The water seems opaque blue with low visibility. The house reefs surrounding the island resort allow guests to spot exotic fishes. Beginners can take help from certified diving instructors, who lead you inside the water towards some rewarding sites adjoining the reef.
What type of food to expect in the Maldives?
