Best time to visit Dumunpalit Island
The best time to visit Dumunpalit Island is from December to May when it’s dry season. We went on June and the water was so calm going there. But on the way back around 4 pm it wasn’t so calm. So you need to make sure that the weather is great and perfect conditions to make this trip happens.
From July to October will be rainy season and maybe it will not be possible to reach there by boat. Since it’s a long trip 1 hour 30 minutes you have to make sure that the water is calm.
