This hike can be done the entire year. Anyhow, it's more fun on a sunny day to enjoy the picturesque fiery granite rocks on white sandy beaches and a blue sea. Best time for a perfect shot with these mesmerizing rocks is after midday. In addition, more rocks are visible and accessible at low tide. Due to the remote location and the gravel road at the southern end of the park we didn't meet any person. Tide times Bay of Fires
From November to March pleasant temperatures mostly above 20°C. In the winter, most days with single-digit temperatures. Most precipitation during winter, although the highest amount of rain occurs in November. The driest months are January to March. Anyhow, the eastern part of Tasmania experiences less rain. The wind can be pretty chilly even in the summer.
Due to the remote location and basic facilities at the campgrounds, it’s only crowded during Australian school holidays. We camped here in November 2016, and there was just one more tent.
The park is open from mid-May until mid-October but still accessible in off-season (see main text below) and an amazing experience. However, the place is usually swarmed with tourists.
Avoiding Tourist Crowds:
Time of Day: Go very early at sunrise. It's even quieter before they open (9 am / 8 am) or visit after the park is closed. Check the tide table first: Hopewell Rocks Tide Tables Please be careful: Outside of operating hours there is no staff to advise you regarding safety and you visit at your own risk. However, all other safety measures like cables and signs are in place regardless of the time of day. The only exception is during off-season from mid-October until mid-May: The safety measures are not in place during these months.
Season/Months: Peak tourist season with heavy crowds is from mid-June/July till August. In September it thins out a little but still can be busy as it is the preferred travel month for seniors. SWEET SPOT months with mild weather and less crowds are END OF MAY, BEGINNING OF JUNE and END OF SEPTEMBER until OCTOBER. You might even visit in the winter and enjoy real solitude. But please keep in mind that a walk can be very slippery and icy. Plus, the safety measures are not in place and it can become dangerous.
Best time is april to october. It is getting hot in June till August
Batibou in the north of Dominica is a hidden gem and difficult to find. That's why it's not crowded, regardless of the season and month. It's a rough road to the beach even more difficult to drive after heavy rainfall in the wet season.
Climate and Enviroment:
Best months are during the dry season from December until April. This is also the peak tourist season on Dominica. However, Batibou Beach won't be crowded even in high season. May is also possible: Less tourists on the island in general but also very hot and humid. Rainy season is from June to November with the possibilities of hurricanes and flash floods.
Like most of the beaches at the Isle of Coll Hogh Beach is much better accessible at low tide.
The best chance of great weather is usually from April to the beginning of July. From mid-July to August there is a higher chance of rain. September is also a good month. Coll is very busy in July and August. In the peak season, it is more difficult to get an accommodation.
After stormy weather, especially in spring and autumn you may find larger pieces of amber. For relaxing at the beach and other outdoor activities you may prefer the warmer summer time.
