It’s June…
This is the time for the summer monsoon in Maldives. Named « Hulhangu » in Dhivehi ( Maldivian language), the summer monsoon often starts in May, reaches its peak around July/August and slowly disappear in October, followed by the winter monsoon ( “Iruvai” in Dhivehi).
The summer monsoon is considered as the strongest of both of them.
You will often experience strong to very strong shower rains. Winds are generally stable and strong too and blow West/ South-West.
During this period of the year, Maldives weather becomes very versatile.
Strong rains often follow a beautiful sunny morning. The weather can change in a few minutes…
Dark, rainy and very windy periods can be very short, but they can also go on for a few days and be immediately replaced by idyllic weather conditions.

Weather balance will remain very fragile all along the season. It is sometimes so humid that a bright Sun can suddenly disappear behind heavy dark threatening clouds.
Here, there is no rule and there never was. Climate changes also affect the Maldives and the phenomenon got stronger the past years.

However, the Summer monsoon also has its good sides !
It is the best times for windsurfing, kitesurfing, fishing and surfing.
But if you are neither a windsurfer, a surfer or a fisherman…and you are a fan of spectacular sunsets and photography, Maldives will also fulfill your wishes.
This is precisely during at this time of the year ( high humidity combined with strange cloudy skies) that Maldives will offer you her best Natural shows with breathtaking unforgettable sunsets…

Maldives Seasons | The first Rain Showers

Day 21. SOUTH MALE ATOLL.

 The sun was shining and the sea was quiet. But in the far end, we could see that something was coming….First winds strongly rised and the rain shower came…This is the beginning of the rainy season in Maldives.

Rain showers are common at this time of the year. Monsoons are changing, skies become dramatic and the weather can change in a matter of minutes.

The rainy season goes generally from June/July until September. This is the ideal season for surfing as the swell gets high and powerful. Windsurf and hobbie cats lovers will also have their best times !
