Did someone say perpetual sunshine? Well, almost. Durbs is a tropical oasis that never really gets bone-chillingly cold. It has a humid, tropical climate that boasts intense heatwaves and tropical rain storms in summer (December through February) and more temperate, comfortable temperatures in winter (June through August).
If you’re not a fan of sweltering humidity that won’t allow your hair to remain straight, you’re better off visiting in winter, when it is still warm enough to hit the beach and enjoy the warm waters. On average days, the coolest it will get in winter is about 11°C.
The busiest month for tourism in Durbs is August, followed by June and March. During these times, prices for hotels and flights will be at their peak, but you can snag some decent deals if you book well in advance. February is the least busy time, as it is still unforgivingly hot. The plus side to this, though, is that things may be a lot cheaper.
We’ve mentioned summer and winter time in Durbs, but what about autumn and spring? March through May marks autumn time and ranges between 26°C and 30°C, with cooler temperatures occurring most often in the latter months. While August takes the title for the busiest month, the whole of autumn is considered peak tourist season. During these months, rain is a rarity, making time spent outdoors exploring the wondrous natural world all the more enjoyable.
Spring occurs from September through November and boasts daily highs that range between 24°C and 26°C. Gentle levels of humidity and wind that counteract the heat make this time of year worthy of consideration. Plus, because it’s not as busy, you can expect to find some gems in the good deals department.
