Maldives Weather – April

April is a good time to visit the Maldives but only if you like very hot and sunny weather.

April marks the onset of the wet monsoon season in the Maldives, with an increase in rain and strong winds during the course of the month.

Temperatures remain high but with growing rainfalls that may continue for a few days.

If you do plan to visit the Maldives in April, it’s probably best to arrive at the beginning of the month, so as to avoid the wet weather that generally occurs towards the latter half of the month.
