There are two seasons in Fiji – warm and even warmer with temperatures ranging between 26°C – 31°C.
Depending upon what you are seeking from your Fiji holiday will determine what time of year best suits your requirements.
From April to early October the sun isn’t quite as hot nor the humidity as high. The days are warm but the nights cooler.
From November to May can get very hot and humid. As with all tropical climates, sudden rain showers are frequently followed by strong burst of cloudless, sunny skies.
Most action enthusiasts prefer Fiji in the winter. Surfers are attracted to the great swell and hikers can enjoy exploring the islands without the chance of being caught out by a tropical shower.
Diving in Fiji is excellent all year round because it is not affected by land run off or large scale weather shifts. During summer (December – March) the water temperature sits between 27-30°C (75-80°F). Higher water temperatures do increase the oceanic plankton growth which can reduce visibility however only the fussiest of divers would notice. During winter (June – September) the water water temperatures drops to a comfortable 24-27°C (70-75°F). Visibility of more than 100ft (30m) is better during the cooler months.
Annual rainfall on the main islands is between 2000mm and 3000mm on the coast and low lying areas, and up to 6000mm in the mountains. The smaller islands typically receive less rainfall and range between 1500mm – 3500mm. Cyclones can occur in Fiji and are normally confined to the wet season.
