Sunset and Sunrise in Maldives? But what time is it in Maldives? GMT +5

It’s the beginning of a day with a sunrise talking about the beautiful sunsets,

There was always a question about the sunrise or a sunset, I am a true believer of being sunrises more clearer and more contrasts then the sunsets in Maldives, It’s due to the fact that the Maldives is 99% of water around the country, due to evaporation process. Yes it’s like from the 30 degree of heat on an average in Maldives by the sunset time it’s a little foggy. When the day starts it’s way clearer.

Sunsets in Maldives

The Maldives sunset – you’ve heard about it, you’ve seen photos of it, and now you can finally see for yourself what all the hype is about! A large part of Maldives’s spiritual draw can be attributed to its unique and inspirational sunset views. Gorgeous red, orange, pink and blue hues leave spectators in awe as the sun makes its way toward the horizon. The ubiquitous sunshine that provided 12 hours of life-giving light and beach and outdoor fun sinks peacefully into the sea as if being tucked in after a hard day’s work.

Brilliant Colors

At the time of sunset, more light is piercing the atmosphere than at other times during the day. The heating process during the day has created a high number of particles in the air, which are able to scatter more light.

Speedy Sunsets

Sunset in Maldives is anywhere from about 5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. depending on the time of year. Once the sun seems low on the horizon, you should find your “sunset” spot quickly as it will set rapidly. When you see the sun nearing the horizon, it will surely disappear within a half hour. Look away and you might miss something! Twilight is also relatively short long in Maldives. After the sun disappears, you may only have 20 to 35 or more minutes of residual light.

There would be a timezone difference with different resorts in Maldives,

Word from @Tripavisor user KatfromAyada @ayadamaldivesresort

The Maldives is GMT+5, but many resort choose to add an extra hour on to that, making them GMT+6.

I think that the island would always show the Male time on their websites their island time is purely an in house arrangement to give longer daylight but flights arrivals seaplanes etc must be geared to Male time for obvious reasons and therefore the same applies to their websites

That’s depending on the resort or Hotel you’re staying you might end up living +6 or 7 GMT, but Maldives time is +5 GMT Maldives is 4 hours ahead of United Kingdom and Maldives is 9 hours ahead of Washington, DC, USA
