April is a dry month in Guam with the effects of bright sunshine reflecting in the heat. The average high temperature is 87°F (30.6°C), and the daily sunlight lasts for at least 7 hours. Guam has many open beaches where the heat becomes unbearable in the afternoon. The rainforest is the right place to explore for adventure seekers who wish to escape the intense sun rays. Put on sunscreen if on the beach after morning hours and use a broad-brimmed hat. The rainfall registers an average of 3.6" (91mm) and shows signs of a gradual reversal of the dry cycle. The wind is a strong motivation for sailing in the ocean waters to those who wish to try something else than snorkeling and swimming. Expect cloud cover occasionally during the afternoons with follow-up rain. April gives more space on the beaches and resorts in Guam as the tourist season slows down.
