ENVIRONMENT WEATHER & CLIMAT IN MALDIVES

The Maldives enjoys a tropical climate and has two distinct seasons; the dry season, known as the “Iruvai” Monsoon (Northeast Monsoon) - April to December, and the wet season or “Hulhangu” Monsoon (Southwest Monsoon) - May to November. The dry season, as the name suggests, is a period of regular sunshine with little or no rain showers. This is also the best season for scuba diving. The wet season is a period in which the whole of Maldives experiences torrential rain showers which includes thunder storms. This is the best season for surfing due to good swells and wave generation. The wet season does offer periods of sunshine similar to balmy days you would experience during the dry season, as Maldives enjoys year long sunshine. The temperature normally ranges from


Land wildlife and vegetation in the Maldives are limited in terms of
bio-diversity. However, this aspect is overshadowed by the abundant
marine flora and fauna to be found in the Maldives. The month of June 2011 even saw Baa Atoll of the Maldives being declared a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The Maldives is home to over 2,000
species of fish ranging from reef fish to Manta rays, Moray Eels, reef sharks and to the majestic whale shark. These marine eco-systems

are both extremely vibrant and extremely fragile at the same time.
 Their vulnerability was made clearly evident by the nation-wide coral
bleaching incident caused by the El Niño (An unusual warming of the surface water) of 1998. Furthermore, global warming and rampant pollution are becoming greater threats to the environment of the Maldives.
