Perfect for sunbathers, a period from December to April is a tourist season with room rates at their peak. Yet, it never gets overcrowded in the Maldives. Winter is also your chance to witness an extraordinary spectacle of baby islands' birth. Low season from May through September could be considered the best time to visit the Maldives. Crowds thin out, prices drop, and conditions for scuba diving and surfing are optimal. Rainfalls are possible, but storms usually move quickly. Besides, summer is a high time to see magic bioluminescent plankton. Visiting the Maldives in this period will also introduce you to Ramadan traditions.
