What is October like in the Maldives?

October is the Best Value For Money for The Maldives

This island nation is not known for being budget-friendly, especially for families. That being said, those looking for a bit of a deal should consider May to October. The rates are generally lower, and resorts are extremely generous with value ads (e.g., free transfers, kids stay for free, free meal plan upgrade, and even free room upgrades). In some cases, we have seen savings of up to 60% on hotel packages compared to high season.

What is the weather like in October in the Maldives?

October marks the end of the Monsoon season. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t rain as much during this time, and when it does, short downpours often pass by quickly due to the low-lying nature of the islands. It is also more likely to rain overnight, with bright sunny days.
High Temperature: 86 F
Low Temperature: 78 F

What activities are there to do in The Maldives in October?

Best Time to see Manta Rays and Whales, Sharks
For those who love marine life, the islands are a hidden gem for close interactions. You can see up to 200 Manta Ray at Hanifaru Bay in Baa Atoll during feedings, and Ari Atoll is the hot spot to see juvenile Whale sharks.

It is still surfing season, and hotels like Six Senses Laamu, Anantara Dhigu, Niyama, and Adaaran Hudhuranfushi are great for even first-time surfers to give it a go.

How do you get to The Maldives from the US?

While there are no direct flights from the Maldives to the US, there are good connectivity options via Europe, Singapore, or the Middle East. We recommend adding a couple of days and spending some extra time in one of these destinations!
