When To Go

The coast can be visited all year round. The rainy season runs from August to October but generally it only rains for a couple of hours a day. However the sticky heat can be quite taxing – the spectacular lightening storms go a long way in making up for it. The hottest time of year is actually in January to March but much less noticeable.

Busy season runs from November to mid May with Christmas and New Year seeing all the hotels fully booked. Otherwise, it is often very quiet, almost deserted, during the week contrasting heavily with the weekends when day trippers flock to the beach for a dose of sea and sand. Turtle spotting is best from September to January.
