Weather in Fiji
Fiji boasts a year-round tropical climate that ranges from warm to warmer! Most months in this heavenly South Pacific paradise feature temperatures that rise to around 30°C, but gentle trade winds blow from the south-east to keep visitors cool and comfortable! Fiji does endure its share of rain, with some areas getting more than others. Generally, the northern and western regions get more rain, but this is usually only between November and April. The water temperatures in Fiji are consistent and pleasant all year—sitting at around 27°C, swimming, snorkelling, diving and water sports can be enjoyed no matter when you choose to visit!
Fiji is in the southern hemisphere. Like Australia, the peak summer months are between December and February, however because the country is tropical, these months extend out a bit more. Fiji’s summer is characterised by the wet season and temperatures that range between 22°C and 33°C. This season runs from November to April and consists of brief, heavy showers in the late afternoon. These showers tend to be localised, so won’t ruin your holiday. They also occur significantly less on the smaller islands than on the main island, Viti Levu.
Winter in Fiji is also known as the dry season. During May to October temperatures range between 19°C and 29°C and the air feels significantly less humid. The water tends to be clearer during these times—without the runoff from the rains, divers and snorkelers can enjoy increased visibility around the beautiful coral reefs. Unlike winter in other countries, Fiji’s winter will not chill your bones—it may be necessary to take a light jumper for the evenings when the winds tend to pick up, but you’ll be able to enjoy the sunshine, pool and ocean all the same!
When is the best time to visit Fiji?
The best time to visit Fiji, based on the weather, is between late March and early December. The days are sunny, the rains are few and the opportunities to relax on stunning white beaches seem almost endless! Peak tourist season falls between this time, particularly during June and July. With so many people seeking to escape Australia’s winter, airline and accommodation prices also reach a peak—if you’re looking for a quieter, more budget-friendly holiday, these are two months to avoid!
It’s important to note that Fiji can experience occasional cyclones in the wet season, however these are generally well forecasted and can be avoided.
