Maldives Geography, Climate, and Weather




Geography
The Maldives Republic located 500km (300 miles) southwest of the southern tip of India consists of about 1190 low-lying coral islands. These islands are spread over 26 atolls, ringlike coral formations enclosing a lagoon, which gives the Maldives its unique paradis-like appearance. No more than 200 islands are inhabited and most of them are covered by lush tropical vegetation and palm trees. About 99% of its territory is covered by the sea.

Climate
The Maldivian climate is tropically hot. Virtually summer all year around, it is the perfect place for sun lovers. There are two monsoons, the southwest from May to October and the northeast from November to April. Generally the southwest brings more wind and rain in June and July. The daily maximum temperature is 30.3 degrees Celsius and it rarely goes lower than 25.3 degrees Celsius. The best time to visit is November to (April)Easter.
