The best time to visit this resort is definitely the summer period as there isn’t as much to do when the temperatures start to cool down in the winter months. Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s and into the low 30s throughout the summer months on a fairly consistent basis whilst the period between Autumn to Spring drops to the low teens. The summer period is also when most of the businesses dedicated to tourists are open and when the beach is at its vibrant best - so don’t miss out!
