The Maldives is the world’s lowest country, its maximum natural
ground level is of only 2,3 meters above sea level. During the last
century, water levels rose by 20 centimeters and if this continues,
the islands could become greatly endangered. The coral reef is
composed of coral debris and living corals constituting a natural
barrier against the sea and creating calm lagoons where locals
build their homes on stilts. Coral reefs protect the islands
against storms and high tides of the Indian Ocean.
The ocean has a great influence on the country, acting as a heat
buffer absorbing, stocking and gently releasing tropical warmth.
Moreover, the heat is softened by fresh breeze.
The temperature ranges between 22°C and 33°C throughout the year,
considering its proximity to the Equator. You will enjoy your
vacation in the Maldives the most in the months of November
through April as you will relish the sun and avoid chillier months.
Like all destinations in the Indian Ocean, the
Maldives are submitted to monsoons. Two seasons dominate the
islands weather. The southwest monsoon, typical in the months of
June and July, marks the rainy season while the northeastern
monsoon occurring from November until April indicates the hot, dry
season. Breezes tend to soften the otherwise hot temperatures.
The Maldives are a true haven even for the most discerning palates.
