Maldives in August
May through November is monsoon season in the Maldives, and there are two distinct monsoons, with highs of 32 ° C (90 ° F). September sees rainfall of 200 mm, though diving conditions are good most of the year, with sightings of manta rays almost guaranteed. Hammerheads and reef sharks are most common during June. Even during the rainy season, when you can expect frequent downpours, the rain comes in brief spurts, making way for sunny skies and postcard sunsets. May through September is the best time for kite-surfers, as conditions are generally cloudy with strong winds. Surfing season is March through October, with the shallow waters making it perfect for beginners wishing to hang ten.
