More tourists arrive on the islands. It is fantastic weather for them. They wear summer clothes. You can observe that many go for sunbathing even swimming although the sea will still be cold so few dare jump in.

Bad weather can still be with us, just be prepared and see the weather forecast before you come over but by this time it is more stable getting closer to summer.
