The Maldives is a collection of over 1192 coral islands, all sprinkled across the Indian Ocean, south of India and Sri Lanka. From tiny island hideaways measuring just 400m long by 200m with thatched roofs and sandy floors, to large resorts with extensive leisure facilities, the Maldives can fit almost every definition of paradise.
Some islands have health and beauty spas,top first class restaurants serving grilled fish and lobster dinners, and stylish ‘water bungalows’ set on stilts above the lagoon. Others are places to snorkel, dive or windsurf all day long.
Maldives is located at the equator and experiences monsoonal climate. Maldives has two distinct seasons; dry season (northeast monsoon) and wet season (southwest monsoon). In these two seasons the temperature varies hardly. Northeast monsoon extends from January to March. Since Maldives consists of small islands and are surrounded by seas, hot days are often tempered by cooling sea breezes and balmy evening temperatures.
Throughout the year, temperature remains almost the same in the Maldives. However, daily temperature ranges from around 31 degrees Celsius in daytime to 23 degrees Celsius in nighttime. The mean daily maximum temperature for Central parts (Hulhule) of the Maldives is 30.5 degrees Celsius and minimum temperature is 25.7 degrees Celsius.
