The weather in Fiji

Nestled in the heart of the South Pacific, Fiji enjoys a tropical island climate year-round with most months getting up around 30°C (86 °F).  A gentle trade wind often blows from the south-east to keep even the most active visitors to our shores cool and comfortable.

The high mountain ranges in the middle of the larger islands mean that some parts of Fiji get slightly more rain than others.  You'll notice these 'dry' and 'wet' zones by the sudden change from grassy rocky peaks to jungle clad mountains as you fly over the larger islands.

With pleasant water temps all year round (27°C /81°F), ocean activities like swimming, snorkeling and diving can be enjoyed in all seasons.  Scuba divers enjoy increased visibility around coral reefs during the Fijian 'winter' months of May - October.

When to Visit Fiji

All year is perfect really!

The most popular time to visit Fiji is between late March and early December, with sunny days and a warm tropical climate offering endless options for lazing on white sandy beaches, diving beneath the waves and exploring inland.

Humidity drops during the Fiji 'winter' months so outside activities are more pleasant. Fiji's tourist season usually peaks in June and July.

Temperatures climb during the summer months of November to April and the brief afternoon downpours are the perfect respite from the heat.
 

Smaller islands typically receive less rainfall than the main Islands.
