Climate of Wenchang Hainan Island
Wenchang Hainan enjoys a sub-tropical climate with an average annual temperature of 20C (68F). Wenchang”s Spring (April till June) is hot with humidity, almost same temperature as Sanya, the only beach destination on Hainan Island, and the high summer temperatures bring heavy rain. Summer ( July-September) is a season of typhoons and rain storms. October & November is very nice in Haikou, warm and dry. But in winter it can be very chilly and rainy from December till March, not possible to swim in the ocean or swimming pool. So in winter, Sanya is the best destination for your Hainan Holiday. In Caddie’s option, it is better not to visit Wenchang and its surrounding area in Winter (December till February), but come to Sanya.
Raining Season July till September is not too hot, actually the highest temperature is around 34 degrees. While the temperatures in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou could be over 38 degrees. So basically speaking, Wenchang is actually cooler than those big cities. With the help of tropical showers or typhoon, day temperature could easily drop down to 25 degrees. Typhoon could be a problem, but usually won’t last more than 2 days. And normally after typhoon, it becomes very hot, and the sun is sharp shining.
Wenchang’s casual attitude makes packing a breeze. From March till November, shorts, T-shirts are usually all that is needed. For December and February especially during the evening, you need to prepare long pants and coats. Sun blocks, sandals, swimming wear sun glasses are the must for you holiday in Wenchang. Umbrella is not requested as you could get from the hotels/resorts you stay.
