The Maldive Islands enjoy a delightful climate with sunshine and pleasant sea breezes for the greater part of the year. For the extent of the drier season the visitor will have the opportunity to take advantage of eight to nine hours of sunshine each day. For the majority of the year the Maldives is blessed with one of the most agreeable climates on the globe.
During some parts of the year rainfall is experienced, with more predictability in the islands that lie close to or to the south of the Equator. Turbulent weather phenomena are very infrequently experienced in the Maldives and are of very short duration.
