  4. Maldives in April: weather, tips, prices

The Maldives in April has the highest water and air temperatures in a year and continues to be one of the most attractive tourist destinations.

Weather in Maldives in April

Travelers wishing to visit the Maldives in April should be aware that the weather in the Maldives is influenced by two monsoons: northeastern (Iruvai) and southwestern (Hulhangu). April is a transitional period, when the dry northeastern monsoon leaves the islands, and the southwestern monsoon rushes to replace it, bringing moisture and wind. Therefore, in the Maldives in April, the weather becomes less predictable, the amount of precipitation gradually increases and the humidity rises.

As in March, visitors to the islands will experience relatively low cloud cover and about 9 hours of sunshine.

  • Daytime air temperature: reaches 30-32 degrees.
  • Air temperature at night: does not drop below 27-29 degrees.
  • Water temperature: the highest in the whole year and reaches an impressive 30-31 degrees.

Best places to stay in April in the Maldives

In recent years, seasonal climatic changes have been observed not only in the Maldives, but throughout the world. Therefore, it is difficult to predict with absolute accuracy how the weather will behave at any given moment. While the temperature of the ocean around the coast of the Maldives remains fairly constant, weather factors such as rainfall, wind strength, and the ratio of sunny to cloudy days can vary significantly depending on the location of the atoll.

So, going to the Raa, Laviani and Haa Alifu atolls in April, you should expect mostly clear weather accompanied by a light breeze. The number of rainy days will not exceed 3-5 during the month.

On the atolls of Ari, Baa, Maafushi, as well as on the Male atolls, as in March, similar weather conditions continue to persist: no more than 5 rainy days per month with an average wind speed of 3.5 m / s.

On Addu Atoll during this period, the possible amount of precipitation may be more significant. If you believe the forecasts of weather forecasters, it can rain here up to 9 days a month. At the same time, fine sunny days on this atoll are also not uncommon.
