Good to Know
The South Coast is an all-year-round destination with a tropical climate. During the rainy season, the fun doesn’t stop, so be sure to bring your umbrella along. A light jacket is advised for cool evenings but you find that the weather is usually warm enough for swimming and seaside activities, even in winter. A swimming costume, sunblock and a hat are vital for a sunny South Coast holiday and you may want to bring your own surfboard and fishing rod along. Please contact us if you need any advice on what to pack.
