In August the die-off of the seaweed is complete and underwater visibility is at its best. Still plenty to see though with many fish and crustacea present. The water temperature usually peaks in the third or fourth week of August.

On land the last of the summer flowers are blooming and by the end of the month the first signs of Autumn will be appearing.
