When to go to the Philippines?

  Chapter 


  • The Philippines mostly has a typical tropical climate with some areas that are rainy all year round, others with a distinct wet and dry season and others that have a shorter dry season and cooler temperatures all year round.
  • The difference between the warmest (April: 33 degrees) and coolest months (December and January) may only be a few degrees, the cool sea breeze makes December through February far more pleasant than the very humid April and May.
  • The Philippines generally tends to be very humid with an average of 71% in March to 85% in September. Prepare to sweat.

Best time to go

  • The best time to go is between January and June. It’s generally dryer, cooler and less humid than the rest of the year.
  • There are quite significant differences in climate regionally though. For example, the southern region has a more pleasant climate during August through October, the northern parts are more agreeable between February and March, where the western parts are better to visit between November and April.

Restrictive time to go

  • The rainy season lasts from June through December.
  • Typhoon season kicks off in June, lasting through to September with the biggest risk of tropical cyclones in July and August with potential power cuts and flooding in many areas of the country.

Hours of sun

  • August and September have the least sun with around five sun hours a day. April is the sunniest with an average of nine hours a day.

Sea temperature

  • The sea water is very warm around the Philippines with an average of around 29 degrees.
