The Maldives is perfect for sunbathers. December to April is the tourist season, which sees rates at their peak. If you do not like crowds, the low season starts from May through September. Crowds are minimal, prices drop, and snorkeling and scuba diving conditions are still favorable. There are more chances of rain during this period but storms do not last long. During peak season, you will enjoy the bioluminescent plankton, and during the low season, you will experience the charm of Hulhumale in a less crowded setting.
