The summer months are the warmest but also the busiest and most expensive. Spring and fall you will see pleasant temps making it the perfect time to visit, although the water temps can be a bit colder if you’re looking to swim. That being said, make sure to avoid Grand Prix weekend unless you’re actually going to see the Grand Prix. It takes place in late May, the 20 – 24 2021 Covid willing.
