We can't help ourselves from thinking of what we are going to do once quarantine is lifted, see friends, go out for dinner or watch football at the pub but for many of us who are stuck home with kids.. It’s a holiday!! A well-deserved holiday, where you don't have to cook, clean or force your kids to do their school work. So it is no surprise that I have started to get enquiries for October half term. The Maldives is an ideal destination for an October half term holiday. Given the current uncertainty suppliers and hotels are offering reduced cancellation policies and free amendments to protect you and you can look forward to an amazing adventure!

Why October Is a Great Time in The Maldives Weather Contrary to popular belief it doesn’t rain as much in the Monsoon months anymore, and when it does it is short sharp bursts and the rain quickly passes due to the low-lying nature of the islands.

Half the Price! Maldives is an expensive destination, especially if you are travelling with a family. However, from the months from May to November all the hotels lower their rates and have extremely generous offers from free meal plan upgrades, free transfers, kids stay for free and free room upgrade. You can make savings of 60% on some deals and it’s a great option for a couple, group of friends or a family.

Surfing It is still surfing season! A bit of wind and you get some of the best beach breaks in the world. Hotels like Six Senses Laamu, Anantara Dhigu, Niyama and Adaaran Hudhuranfushi are great places for even beginners to try surfing for the first time.

Family Friendly Maldives is family friendly all year round, but in the summer months, it is exceptionally affordable. Almost all hotels come with a kids club and a kids and teens program to keep the little ones engaged from cooking classes to treasure hunts!

Manta Rays and Whale Sharks It is the best time to see Manta Rays and Whale Sharks. You can see up to 200 Manta Rays at Hanifaru Bay in Baa Atoll during the feeding frenzy! The whale sharks in Ari Atoll are also more frequently spotted!

Get in touch and lets plan your ultimate island adventure!
