Climate and Weather
The "Dry Season" (May-October)
is our 'winter' and temperatures average 28 degrees Celsius. The
Trade Winds are from the south-east or easterly and can create choppy
sea conditions during June, July and August.
The "Tropical Summer" (November-April)
offers average temperatures of 30-33 degrees Celsius with ocean
breezes and spectacular lightening shows! This season offers the
best sea conditions and the Trade Winds are from the nor-west. End
of December, January and February are the months we receive most
of our rain.
