What’s the weather like in the Maldives in July?
Sitting in the Indian Ocean off the southwest coast of Sri Lanka and India, the Maldives is an island chain that has warm weather all year round. Temperatures are always high, but the amount of rain does change throughout the year. The wet season’s from May to October, so July’s one of the wettest months of the year. Despite this, you’ll still get plenty of sunny weather. You’ll get less rain to the north due to the south westerly monsoon winds. There are stronger winds in general during the wet season. Humidity’s also higher, but July’s still a popular month to travel to the Maldives as you might be able to find a cheaper holiday.
The average high in capital Malé is 30ºC in July, which only drops to 25ºC at night. Don’t waste space in your suitcase with warm clothes as you won’t be needing them. The sea temperature’s 29ºC, which is perfect for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 161mm of rain over 13 days, although you can still expect 12 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. Take care in the sun as UV levels will be extremely high. Sunset’s around 6.20pm.
