If you are a pro­fes­sion­al then you must try Meeru reef and Ninas is good for begin­ners. The best time to vis­it is July, August, at this time the biggest waves, and more mod­er­ate in March, April, and also Novem­ber. The cli­mate here is trop­i­cal, wet and dry from Novem­ber to March, and from May to Novem­ber it rains, strong winds, as well as storms.
