weather in May

Hi all,

We are travelling to the Maldives on the 1st of May for two Weeks, so excited!

Please can anyone let me know what to expect from the weather. We went to Mauritius last year in June and the weather wasn't great.

Thanks in advance.

1. Re: weather in May

There is a weather FAQ on the right hand side of this page which may help.

No one can reliably tell you as weather patterns change continuously, also asking for previous experiences has no baring on what may happen this year.

May is usually the month the monsoons change from NW to SW, aka dry to rainy. The last two years it has happened mid may but it could be earlier or later this year! You need to be realistic and expect to have some cloudy days and rain is more than likely to fall at some point but chances are you will have some lovely sunny days too.

Alternatively it could be perfect sunshine the entire time or it could rain the entire time, you could be incredibly lucky and the monsoon change happen after you leave.

The last 3 years we have been the first week in May and it has been lovely . Dry ,sunny and very hot and calm seas . Hopefully the same again this year as we are going middle two weeks . As said previously it has turned mid to end of May the last few years . No guarantees though apart from it will be hot .

the monsoon most often turns mid may, like andy says . going for offseason prices first two weeks of may is a worthwhile gamble
