Borneo is pretty close but the wrong island. It's Wabag, Papua New Guinea (1981 meters/6500' asl).

Here's a new one:

S: 19 / 8 / 110
O: 15 / 5 / 250
N: 10 / 2 / 360

Almost all of Hawaii:

"...THE KONA COAST OF HAWAII. This is the only region in the islands where summer rainfall exceeds winter rainfall. There is a marked diurnal wind regime, with well-developed and reliable land and sea breezes, especially in the summer. Summer is also the season with a high frequency of late afternoon or early evening showers. Conditions are somewhat warmer and decidedly drier than in windward locations."

I stayed a while at Kailua-Kona during a fairly dry spell for the islands, and it was delightful.

Don't think it's Tofino as summer is a bit too warm. I think it is probably a bit further south in Washington State.. maybe Aberdeen, WA?

I think you're right...it's almost nearly arid in terms of rainfall (cactus grows there).
