Lakshadweep enjoys a pleasant tropical climate with summer temperatures ranging from 22 C to 33 C and winter temperatures from 20 C to 32 C. Southwest monsoons from June to September bring plenty of rainfall to the islands. Months from October to may are pleasant with slight rise in temperature during March and April. Light cotton tropical clothes are ideal throughout the year. A rain coat will come in handy during the monsoons. Cool sea breeze and abundant shade provided by the canopy of coconut palms make the climate pleasant even during peak summer.
