When to go
Fiji has a typical tropical oceanic climate; very similar conditions prevail throughout the year, with high temperatures and humidity. Being south of the equator, Fiji has its wet season between November and April, which is characterized by heavy, brief local showers and contributes most of the country’s annual rainfall. Cyclones do occur in Fiji and are normally confined to wet season.
The best time to visit is during the so-called 'Fijian winter' or 'dry season', from May to October. This time of year is more pleasant with lower rainfall and humidity, milder temperatures and less risk of cyclones. July and August are the busiest tourist season in Fiji. That's when Australians and New Zealanders visit the islands to escape the cold back home.
The dive season is all year round. Winter months are the main season for scuba diving in Fiji in terms of diver numbers, although the visibility tends to peak between the months of July and December when the water is cooler (although it seldom drops below 22°C).
Surfing is possible throughout the year, although the best waves occur between March and October.
