Strong sea breezes help to keep the temperature down. Rain occur in November, but are like brief showers. Longer rains are from April to May. The rest of the year has great summer conditions with an average of 28degrees.

The east coast is known for the tides to go out for quite a distance and leave most of the day will small tidal pools, as the north and west coast of the island are less affected and allows more time for swimming in the ocean.
