  • May: lovely clear blue skies, the rains have mostly finished. The lake is full and temperatures are around 28 degrees.

The mornings tend to be calm and then by midday the wind picks up occasionally producing a swell not much different from the sea.
  • September - December: It slowly warms up to up to about 35 degrees, the water reaching 20+ degrees. Clear blue skies during the day and starry nights.
  • December - April: This is the rainy season although it doesn't tend to rain much during the days. The rain normally starts around 9 at night and stops by 5 in the morning, no guarantees though. The temperature is cooler than November as the evening showers cool down the land. Temperatures during the day reach about 30 degrees with medium humidity.
