Independence Day; July: Especially grandiose in Malé, where the official celebrations involve processions and floats, this festival commemorates the Maldives’ independence from British rule on July 26, 1965.
Bioluminescence; July-November: The Maldives are a great place to see bioluminescent plankton washing up and glowing neon blue, like a mirror of the stars. It is difficult to predict exactly when or where one of nature’s most captivating shows will occur, though. Your best chance of spotting it is between July and November when the coastal waters are warm.
Eid-ul Al’haa; September: Usually held during early September (the exact date changes annually according to the Islamic calendar), Eid-ul Al’haa is a jubilant festival celebrated with parades, musical events and large banquets.
