These words cover beautiful coral reefs, lagoons and sand beaches that are white as snow. It has a tropical climate with temperatures ranging between 25 C 35 C. The best time to visit is from October until May when monsoons (June September) bring heavy rains causing rough seas thus disrupting travel plans.
