November, good idea or not?

Hi there,

I have a chance to go to Boracay in the second half of November but I've been reading lots of different things about the weather, some people say it will be fine others say there will be typhoons.

So is it a wise idea to come then or is just gonna be a case of come and see what happens.

Thanks

Use that opportunity: November is one of the most beautiful and relaxed months - ideal. People are upbeat on incoming season, the weather is mostly good and the beach clean. Are there typhoons? Maybe yes - maybe no. Typhoons have no regular schedule, let's say every November 23. The Philippines is a country with an average of 18 or so typhoons yearly. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Relax, a typhoon is not the end of the world....

I agree. In most years, Oct-Nov is a great time to visit. Prices are still at low season levels but in most years the seasonal weather pattern will have switched by then and the Habagat wind will be blowing out of the East onto Bulubag beach, leaving White Beach on the Western side of the island with calm weather and flat water.

The weather will probably be rainier than in Dec & Jan, but a lot of the rain will likely come in late-night showers, which is fine if you're back in your room by then -- and if not, just order another drink and wait for the shower to stop.

As far as there is such a thing as a typhoon "season", it's probably in the months Jun-Nov or Jul-Oct, depending on how one defines its start and finish months. See …nii.ac.jp/digital-typhoon/reference/monthly/

November is a nice time of year, and maybe easier to negotiate prices, but peak season prices in most hotels are already in place. Weather has been off pattern in general, last June when i was there into July it was mostly nice, little rain, which is rainy season. With that said, other times of year where weather is supposed to be drier it as rained. Go for November, you will have good time.

I agree with the others.

October - december is my favourite time in Boracay. Nice weather, fewer people and no algae/seaweed.

Yes, November is the best time to be in Bora(cay). There will be rain so don't stay too long. 4-days, 3-nights stay is perfect.

Enjoy Bora(cay)....:-)
