Hi all I just put our next visit in the calendar forJune but found there are not many entries.
As I was a bit fogetfull this time round I wondered if we had got out of the way of using it or is it a reflection of the number of our members going this year

We noticed this too, we are very lucky to be going twice this year and have put the dates on the diary. Only 4 weeks to our visit and being Easter I thought it would be busy.

Ahh it's a shame we will miss you.

We go in May on our own, then in July with the children. 4weeks and 2 days, not that I'm counting!!!

Enjoy your trip!

Hi unfortunately no but Emirates are not my favourite airline tonight. We have had our flight time changed five times in four months. Our parking and lounge providers must be thinking not them again plus the trees must be getting chopped at an alarming rate for all the paper I have used and we are loosing most of our first day.

To answer your question directly, last September saw some extraordinarily bad weather. It carried over into the first week of October too (I know...I was there for that!). Some people on shorter visits never saw the Sun and for someone we knew was spending 3 weeks there they reported it rained hard on and off every day of their stay.

Four particular points I'd make though.

The first is to flag up my deliberate use of the word "extraordinarily" above. It was a highly unusual spell last year that had even the staff flummoxed. And in nearly 20 years of going to Meeru I'd not seen it's like. Visitors to Meeru last September will have some sad and soggy tales to relate. True tales, sure, but exceptional all the same.

Second point to note is you need to accept nonetheless that you are not visiting Meeru in dry season. September is technically in "wet" season out there. And September is the wettest month according to the stats. But what this means - in practice - is that in "normal" years is that you can expect to see some spells of heavy rain (typically only brief but if you're unlucky it could last a whole day but that's not a given). You'll likely have possibly an odd drizzly / overcast day, but expect also good dollops of sunshine that burns up the rain water in minutes Very Happy.

Third, we actually prefer going in the "wet" season. We tend to aim for the first weeks of October and continue to do so. We've been in February ("dry" or High Season in the Maldives) and the heat was very strong for us - we spent a lot of time on the shadows Laughing .

Fourth, although of natural concern, try not to get too hung up on what the weather might be like when you are there. Statistics give a clue but for any given week / the small chunk of the year you are actually there, the weather can be fickle (in a good or bad direction).

At the end of the day, the Maldives is a year round destination. Be in no doubt you will need to pack the high factor sun cream Cool .

Fabulous. Thanks a lot for a very detailed answer. We are always going in wet season and experienced 2 full days of rain + few showers when we visited in May and it was fine for us, we just donít want to end up with rain for our whole stay and no signs of sunshines. Fingers crossed 🤞
