Climate and average weather in Maldives
The Maldives has a tropical climate with an average temperature of around 30 degrees Celsius (86° Fahrenheit) during the day throughout the year. Because of the humidity it can feel very warm and sticky.
The number of hours of sunshine and the sea temperature (28 °C / 82° F) is the same the whole year. Dry season is from half December until the half of April. Wet season is from May until the beginning of December.
Because of the proximity to the equator the UV-index is always extremely high so please protect yourself with good sunscreen.
