Overview

Luxury abounds on the islands, and the range of options ensures that you may find something that exactly suits your interests. The Maldives’ most appealing feature is its remarkable natural beauty, which is combined with pleasant weather and the opportunity to interact with fascinating species. These characteristics may be found across the archipelago, with the furthest islands providing a calmer environment than those near international airports and well-known attractions. The initial image many people have about the Maldives is of tropical white sand beaches surrounded by cerulean oceans, but nothing surpasses the reality of actually leaving footprints on those powdered soft sands.

The Maldives is all about living life at your own speed, free of interruptions and enjoying all of life’s luxuries. Rest on sun loungers or in hammocks and catch up on reading before meeting up with family and friends for lunch and drinks. After a little snooze in the shade, you’ll be ready for a day of water activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, kiteboarding, and even surfing in certain places with good waves. The shallows are ideal for snorkelling or swimming in many areas, and there are excellent Scuba diving locations further out to give an interesting experience for everyone.

The Maldives, located in the Indian Ocean southwest of Sri Lanka and India, provides mild weather all year. Temperatures do not fluctuate much, but the volume of rain does. The wet season lasts from May to October, however, there will still be rain and lots of sunlight in November. Because of the path of the southwesterly monsoon winds, the north will receive less rain than the south, while winds will settle as the wet season transitions to the dry season.

Weather in the Maldives in November

Because November marks the conclusion of the wet season, with brief rainy days, the island would normally have bright and clear sunny days, primarily in the post-winter season. The weather remains suitable during the midday period, with temperatures hovering around 27 degrees Celsius and rising to 29 degrees Celsius. As the water begins to clear, it is the ideal time to go scuba diving or snorkelling. The IslandIsland is humid all year, with the typical muggy tropical feel and temperatures that rarely soar above average.

7 Things To Do In the Maldives In November

1. Snorkelling and Scuba diving

The Maldives’ warm, clear seas provide one of the greatest diving experiences in the world. The archipelagic nation’s tropical islands, surrounded by coral reefs and white sands, provide spectacular vistas as well as unusual aquatic life. The Maldives has two types of scuba diving vacations: resorts with private boat diving and all-inclusive liveaboard boats.

2. Nosh and Mash Huni

Mas Huni is a tasty traditional breakfast cooked with tuna, onions, shredded coconut, and red hot chilli peppers. The ingredients are then blended in a dish and seasoned with salt and pepper before being served over Huni Roshi flatbread. It is frequently served with hot tea.

3. Dhoni Sunset Cruise

One of the most memorable features of the vacation is the sunset sail. As the name implies, if you are on the Traditional Dhoni Sunset Cruise in the Maldives, you will have the opportunity to view the most stunning sunset over the Indian Ocean.

4. House reef diving

House reef diving is a reef on or surrounding an island resort that offers greater snorkelling and diving opportunities. The Maldives island includes around 2500 reefs, 900 of which are house reefs. The biggest advantage of house reef diving is that you may explore the reefs without having to utilize a boat. Baros Maldives (2.5-mile reef), Reethi beach resort, Mirihi Island resort, Lily beach resort, and Bathala island resorts are some of the top house reefs in the Maldives.
