Komandoo offers a paradise retreat all year round, and we proudly believe that whenever you visit our island you will have an incredible time. However we are often asked when is the best time to visit, and whilst we know everyone has their own preference, for many of our residents, the best time to visit the Maldives is the months of February through to April – the Maldives’ traditional high season. Here are 3 reasons why this time of year is so popular, and why so many of our repeaters like to come back and see us.
- The Weather: Being close to the equator we enjoy year-round temperatures of 28-30 degrees and plenty of sun. But the months of February-April offer the best chances of enjoying those clam clear days, where there is not a cloud in the sky and the sea is as flat as glass – picture perfect and stunning.
- Marine Life: The calm conditions above the surface almost guarantee great visibility below. Crystal clear waters allow divers and snorkellers to see more of the reef and have a better chance of spotting those shy creatures that may not like to come too close. Visibility of 20-30m is common and diving on the out reefs is simply breath-taking at this time of year.
- Winter Sun: Often these conditions are savoured even more because for many of our residents this time of year is the coldest and dampest back home. There is nothing quite like two weeks on Komandoo to lift the winter blues and bring a little warmth into an otherwise cold time of year.
