August is usually one of Sarawak’s driest months and a great time to explore the National Parks, jungle regions, caves and of course the beaches on the north coast. The ever-present possibility of thunderstorms remains, although these are most likely to occur in the late afternoon or evening and are likely to be short, heavy bursts of rain as opposed to persistent drizzle.
