Peak season

The Maldives are an archipelago situated in the Indian Ocean and consist of 1,192 islets of which 200 are inhabited. The capital and largest island is Malé near Hulhule Island which has the only international airport and where all overseas flights to the Maldives arrive. The beauty of the Maldives is unsurpassed with lush, green islands fringed by palms and white-sand beaches surrounded by aquamarine waters. It is a tropical haven for honeymooners, divers, snorkelers and sunseekers from all over the globe. The most-visited islands are Felidhoo, South Malé, North Malé and Ari with their luxurious resorts offering an array of amenities and activities. The Maldives are a popular holiday spot year round but from December to April is considered high season (dry season) as it characterised by the northeast monsoon, less humidity and slightly warmer temperatures. For those hoping to find cheap flights to the Maldives and discounted room rates you might be out of luck.

Off Season

Divers take cheap flights to the the Maldives during the low season months of September, October and November as these months have the best visibility. Between March and October are the best months for surfing but not necessarily less busy tourist-wise as these months coincide with the European holiday season.

What is good to know if travelling to Maldives?

  • Just 200 or so islands are inhabited by the Maldivians, about 100 of them are tourist resorts, and the other hundred are uninhabited. Careful planning has ensured that the islands’ retain their Edenic character.
  • Lots of resorts, hotels and restaurants will add a service charge of about 10 per cent and tipsfor exceptional service are welcome too. 
  • Felidhoo, South Male, North Male and Ari are the most-visited islands. They are not far from the airport on Male from where most of the “liveaboard” diving boats depart. 
  • Dress appropriately and conservatively, especially when visiting inhabited islands and Male. Women should cover their shoulders and thighs; men can get away with shorts. Alcohol should not be brought into the Maldives. If you do have it in your luggage, it’ll be impounded at the airport until your departure. There are different rules on the resort islands. Bars are well stocked with every type of beverage. 
  • The Fish Market is west of Independence Square in Male. It’s not the place for the squeamish as  freshly caught fish are butchered there, but it offers a glimpse into the life of typical Maldivian fishermen and there’s a cafe upstairs that serves the catch of the day. 
  • The National Art Gallery is a relatively new addition to Male. It houses collections by noted Maldivian artists such as Afzal Shafiu Hassan and Sarudhaaru Dhon Manik.
