Travelling between May and November, outside of the peak season, is still a good time to visit the Maldives. There is a higher chance of rain during this period, but the Maldives does not have such a pronounced wet season as other parts of Asia. Hotel rates during this period tend to be lower, so this could be a good time to nab that great deal you’ve been after!

The wet season in the Maldives runs from May to October. However, don’t let this put you off too much! The humidity levels and rainfall are higher than during the peak season, but the rain is usually quite short-lived and most days still see many hours of sunshine.
