What’s the weather like in the Maldives in April?
Lying to the southwest of India and Sri Lanka, the Maldives is an island country in the Indian Ocean. It has a tropical monsoon climate with high temperatures all year round, with a wet season from May to October and a dry season from November to April. You’ll see more rain as April goes on although it’s still one of the driest months of the year. The southern islands have more rain than those in the north due to south westerly monsoon winds. The dry season has calmer winds and there’s also lower humidity so it’s a great time to visit.
The average high in capital Malé is 32ºC in April, which only drops to 26ºC at night. With these temperatures you won’t need to bring many warm clothes with you. The sea temperature is 30ºC, which is perfect for swimming, while humidity’s very high. There’s 129mm of rain over ten days, and you can expect 12 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be extremely high so make sure you use plenty of sun cream. The sun goes down just before 6.15pm.
