Yachting season and weather in Phuket
From November to April there is a high season in Phuket. The wind speed is 2 to 4 points in the northeast. The air temperature on the island is + 30 °C during the day and + 24 °C at night. The weather in Phuket is clear during the dry season. The sunniest month is February. The rains begin in November and April. The sea during this period of the year is very calm and warm. The water temperature near the island is + 28 °C degrees. This is the only season we recommend visiting the Similan Islands.
From May to October, there is a monsoon season. The air temperature is the same as in the high season. Phuket's climate is influenced by the southwest monsoon. The wind strength ranges from 2 to 6 points. Showers are short (1-2 hours) and begin in the afternoon. On some beaches on the west coast, there is a strong undercurrent. Therefore, we do not recommend swimming.
