Maldives Island Time
Maldives Island Time is how the time on many islands is referred to. It’s a very unofficial time zone. Islands that are a distance away from the capital of Malé add an hour or sometimes two on to the time. It means that when you leave to catch your flight for your journey home you actually leave an hour earlier, this is especially helpful if you leave in the morning.
The Maldives is officially 5 hours ahead of GMT in the UK. The clocks in the Maldives do not alter during the year, which means there is no daylight savings time to have to think about. There is an average of 8 hours of sunshine every day.
There is no need to worry about this time difference, the resort will let you know if they have altered the clocks to Maldives Island time when you arrive. All you need to do is relax and enjoy your holiday.
