Palm Springs – Best time to go

Best time to visit Palm Springs

Palm Springs is a near perfect holiday destination. Clear blue skies, abundant sunshine, low humidity and with 350 or more days of sun every year in Palm Springs, why would you not want to visit.

With highs above 40°C, the summer does get very hot, so we suggest going in March to May or September to November for bright sun and clear blue skies.
