Maldives, the epitome of paradise, comprises of a string of pearl-like island dotted across the deep blue Indian Ocean. White sandy beaches sparkling in the sun alongside crystal clear lagoons make it an idyllic place for that romantic getaway.
The Maldives enjoy a tropical climate with warm temperatures and sunshine year round. The hottest month is April and the coolest is December. The weather is determined largely by the monsoons. February is the driest with January to April being relatively dry. May to September is the wet season. Rough seas and strong winds are common during this period. The northeast monsoon occurs between December to April. This is a period of clear skies, lower humidity and very little rain. The Maldives is located in the equatorial belt and therefore severe storms and cyclones are extremely rare events.
The Maldives is famed for the rare underwater beauty of its coral reefs. The colourful and abundant sea life has fascinated divers and snorkellers for many years. Both the high level of visibility, sometimes exceeding 50 metres and warm temperatures throughout the year makes diving in the Maldives a delight you would want to experience over and over again. All resorts in the Maldives have professional dive schools with multi-lingual instructors and conduct courses for beginners and experienced divers.
The Maldives are ranked among the top five places on earth to watch whales and dolphins. Over 20 different species make the Maldives their home. These range from the mighty Blue Whale to the diminutive but highly acrobatic Spinner Dolphin.
