    Indian Ocean weather May

    What’s the weather like in the Indian Ocean in May?

    May is a fantastic time to head to the Indian Ocean on holiday. Indian Ocean weather in May is very warm and dry with temperatures climbing to the high twenties and low thirties.

    Geographical influences

    The Indian Ocean is home to a number of beautiful and exotic islands including the Maldives, Sri Lanka and the Seychelles. All of the islands are perfect for a classic beach holiday but if you’re looking for a mix of sand and tropical forests, head to the Seychelles. Here, you’ll experience the island’s romantic atmosphere and enjoy some snorkelling in the sea. For a cultural trip, Sri Lanka is perfect. Explore its colonial buildings and walk through plantations with beautiful gardens and epic scenery.


    The water is very warm and ideal for swimming during the warmest time of the day. Temperatures will reach as high as 31°C, which means you need to keep topping up your sunscreen and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. The average rainfall is around 20mm spread over the month with 12 hours of sunshine per day. The average humidity is 76% which remains steady thanks to 13mph trade winds from the sea.
