We went last week of April this year- lovely and warm, sea temps pretty good too. Did not need jackets cardigans at night . Just one day- wind got up late pm and we had an hours light rain - caused great commotion ! Next day sea was noticeably cooler. Excellent time to go if you dont want extreme heat.

We were out there 22 April to 6 May this year! Also got the little bit of rain!

When we left on 6 May the temperature was mid 90s and increasing day by day - pool water was lovely and warm, and the evenings were pleasant to walk around .

Didn't get as far as the sea so can't really comment on sea temperatures, but Spring temperatures were perfect for us.
