What clothes in August?

Is it cool enough in the Summer evenings to need a lightweight cardigan / long linen trousers? Just deciding what to pack...?

Bon jou LeedsMumOf4,

Depending on where you are staying... cooler breezes down by the water or up on hillsides.

A shawl/pashmina or long-sleeved shirt & linen trousers sufficient.

Bless up! Paul

Nope, August is the height of summer and it is warm/hot and still pretty humid in the evenings (high 70s/low 80sF in the evenings still). Most people here are still running around in shorts or sundresses in the evenings in Summer. Linen trousers would be good, but jeans would be heavy and hot. I highly doubt you will need any type of wrap or sweater, for being out and about, however, if you dine somewhere with A/C, it may feel cool, and a light sweater may come in handy if you tend towards cold.

Think hot and humid pretty much all day/night and pack accordingly. Plus - you have about 7 months till your trip, so you can keep an eye on temps as your trip draws closer and pack accordingly then. Enjoy your visit.

We were there in April and didn't need either.

Hello again!

it will be hot, sticky and humid so the lighter clothes the better. Do pack a small umbrella and plenty of mossie repellant. I have only once wanted a wrap and that was three weeks ago when I was, for the first time, chilly in the morning. August will be hot!
