The Maldives are blessed with a predominantly sunny and warm climate. During the drier season the visitor will enjoy no less than eight or nine hours of sunshine each day. For the greater part of the year the climate is delightful, providing sun worshippers’ ample opportunity to bask in its glorious rays.
Rainfall is experienced at certain times of the year, with more predictable regularity in the islands in close proximity and to the south of the Equator. Forceful weather conditions are rare in the Maldives with very infrequent cyclonic conditions.
