Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of setting the clocks forward one hour from Standard Time for the summer months, and back again in the fall, in order to make better use of natural daylight.

The extra hour of daylight gained in the spring is especially welcome after the long, dark winter months. It also allows us to enjoy more evening daylight during the peak tourism season.

DST begins at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March, when clocks are set forward one hour. It ends at 2:00 a.m. on the first Sunday in November, when clocks are set back one hour.

In 2020, DST begins on Sunday, March 8 and ends on Sunday, November 1.
