The sun shines for around eight hours a day which sees the temperature rising slightly higher, to around 32°C. Windsurfing, parasailing, diving amongst the corals and deep sea fishing are big pulls of the area at this time of year, with calm waters but reliable winds. These winds also provide some relief for sunbathers sizzling on the powder-soft beaches.
