Best Time to visit:-
Between November and March is the best time to visit Alibaug. The sun's not too harsh and you'll be able to enjoy the beaches. However, the pleasant weather also means crowds of visitors everywhere and more expensive accommodation. Summers in Alibaug, from March until July, are hot and humid. With a tropical monsoon climate, the region in and around Redi experiences a hot and humid weather most of the time in a year. Hence, it is advisable to avoid visiting it during the summer season when the atmosphere is extremely humid and hot. The appropriate time when the beauty of Redi is at its summit and when it maintains a cool and pleasant environment is from November until the end of February.
