Lakshadweep has a tropical climate. From 27 to 32 degree
Celsius during September to March. From 30 to 33 degree
Celsius in April and May. Water temperature in the lagoon
is normally around 25 - 27 degree centigrade.
The temperature during monsoon is between 27 - 30 degrees
and water temperature remains at 25 degrees. Though the sea
remains rough during monsoon, the reef which encircles the
island, keeps the lagoon calm. However, due to rough sea,
boats do not ply outside the lagoon.
Some effect of the northeast monsoon is felt in
October-November in the form of light transitory showers
which cool the place.
Though the Islands are open round the year, from October to
April is the ideal time to visit. The rush of tourists is
mainly concentrated from November to March. The monsoon
period is from 15 may to 15 September.
October - May for the ship based tour packages. Agatti
and Bangaram may be visited throughout the year.
Clothing: Light cotton
tropical clothes are sufficient throughout the year. A
waterproof coat is advisable during the monsoons.
