Maldives, Figures and Facts
Unsurprisingly for those who've ever seen a picture of the idyllic Maldives, the land of everlasting sunshine enjoys hot weather throughout all seasons, with warm temperatures that hardly ever drop below the 30-degree mark. These islands have a year-long tropical summer that only sees changes between the dry and wet seasons. Humidity levels are higher in the wet months but thunderstorms are not that frequent compared to other regions in the Indian Ocean and the sun still shines brightly.
