The driest time for the west and south coast is December to March, followed by July and August, and while swimming in the sea is possible, many beaches are affected by large waves and strong currents year round.
The east coast offers a contrast with calmer waters and a drier and more consistent climate which is at its best from March to September. Consider taking a scenic flight transfer to the east coast to cut your journey time and enjoy a stunning bird’s eye view of the island en route.
