The rainy season is characterized by sudden, momentary downpour after which the fine weather comes back again.
FoodThe resort has two restaurants, one of them is entirely built with bamboo and used for fish barbeques on certain nights; the second, more formal restaurant is where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served "à table d'hôte". Occasionally dinner buffets are also served in this restaurant. The food is Mediterranean but you can also enjoy local dishes and, of course, daily fresh fish delivered by fishermen from villages in the neighborhood.
