Best Time to Visit Maldives

When temperatures dip during winters in North India, I crave a trip to the beach. Every year I escape to a beach destination where I can just sit back relax and enjoy the sound of the soothing waves while sampling delicious food fresh from the sea. If you are game for some beach therapy too this winter, read why Maldives is the destination you must explore.

Blue skies, low humidity and little rains make October to December the ideal period to visit Maldives. It’s the best time to experience turquoise water, emerald blue sky and the island life of Maldives. The good thing is Maldives is a short flight from India, which means you can even do it during a long weekend.

What’s more, Maldives offers free visa on arrival to all nationalities, so you don’t have to spend time worrying about the visa. Sounds perfect already, isn’t it?


Last month, I was in Maldives for work and I loved the island so much that I wish to plan a holiday again, this time with my better half. Luckily my wedding anniversary is round the corner and I intend to celebrate it in the Maldives. The resorts arrange everything to make an occasion special for you like a candlelit dinner, a romantic sunset stroll and special activities just for couples. All I need to do is book my tickets and hotel stay.

I can’t wait to leave my boots and coats in Delhi and flirt with sarongs and swimwear once there. The picturesque locales of Maldives are alluring. Each island resort has multiple dining options, spa, swimming pool and water activities. When in Maldives you must try snorkeling. It is one of the best water sports for non-swimmers. Shark-feeding, sailing, angling, kayaking, diving are some other activities offered by the resorts. Perceived as a luxury destination, you would be surprised to know that Maldives has some budget accommodation options too.


Typically we see many weddings in India happening in the months of October to January. So if you are tying the knot this season but have still not finalized on your honeymoon destination, look no further. The turquoise waters and white sand beaches of Maldives make it a honeymooners’ paradise. Book a water villa at a resort and spend time in the Jacuzzi overlooking the sea, wake up to the spectacular sunrise which you can view straight from your villa or just dine on the beach in a fairytale like setting.
