The Philippines is one of the famous holiday destinations among the tourist. One of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines is Cebu Island. Surrounded by white-sand beaches, crystal blue sea and spectacular diving, Cebu is a perfect getaway for those who want a little retreat from the bustling big cities.
Cebu has a tropical climate as well as hot, humid summers and also heavy monsoon seasons. The best time to visit the island would be in January, where the sun shines all day. However, it is much cooler at night. It is also less humid. The average temperature during this month is between 29.2°C to 31°C.
Some may prefer this as it is the authentic feel of a tropical island. However, the temperature may be slightly high and may cause heat stroke for those who stay under the sun for too long. June to August is the time to avoid the island as it is the rainy season. There will be heavy rain almost every day and there are also possible typhoons. Boats to reach the city may not be available. Therefore it is not the best time to visit the city.
