Weather and Climate
Fiji’s wet season is from November to April. Fiji has a mild average temperature of 25°C, however it can climb to 30+°C in summer from December until January, and then sink to 20°C in winter from July until August.
Best time to visit is the so-called Fijian winter or ‘dry season’, from May to October, with lower rainfall and humidity, milder temperatures and less risk of tropical cyclones. These 6 months make up the high season when airfare and accommodation costs are at their highest, peaking in June and July. In wet season it’s best to head to drier regions such as the Mamanuca and Yasawa island groups. December and January are busy, as they coincide with school holidays in Australia and New Zealand, and Fijians visiting relatives. November, February and March are low season, the best time to get deals on flights and accommodation.
