The least rain falls from January to April and this is the best time for a vacation in the Maldives. There are recommendations that the weather in May is still comfortable, but prices in hotels are already decreasing. You can use it or not as you wish. But you can have a good time in the Maldives at any time of the year too.

Holidays in the Maldives do not necessarily mean living in a very expensive, luxury resort. This is not for the very wealthy only. In recent years, local authorities have made attempts to attract not very wealthy tourists and young people.
There are about 60 guest houses and hotels on the island of Maafushi, which is part of the Kaafu Atoll. Maaffushi is an island inhabited by both locals and tourists. The island has a beach (bikini beach) where tourists are allowed to swim in bikinis. With ferry connections to Male, Maafushi Island is popular with individual travelers. The ferry runs once a day, except Friday.
Think about what you will do during your vacation! Probably the main entertainment for most tourists in the Maldives is "lying on the beach", swimming in the ocean, enjoying food and just relaxing. But the Maldives also has plenty to do for those who enjoy an active lifestyle. These are mainly water activities: yachting, scuba diving, diving, watching fish, etc.
The activities offered to tourists in the Maldives can be found in advance, online. Offers depend on the atoll you have chosen for your holiday.
