What is the weather like and what is the best season to visit? 

Cape Weligama is a year round destination. The deep south of Sri Lanka experiences a micro climate which has less effect from the monsoon rains.  The driest part of the year is between mid-December to March. The rainy monsoon season is traditionally from May to July. August and September are drier months, with rain returning in October and November. Rains are usually expected during the evening and don’t last very long, hence the sun is rarely out of sight for long. Temperatures range on average between 27 to 30 degrees Celsius. Ideal time for diving or snorkelling is in-between late November to early April.
