Fiji Climate and Weather
Fiji enjoys a typical tropical climate, with a trade wind blowing across the islands to cool things down during most of the year. The lovely climate is one of Fiji's advantages as a beach holiday destination. Maximum summer temperatures average 88ºF (31ºC), with the winter average not far different at 84ºF (29ºC). Fiji usually experiences its hottest weather between December and April, and its coolest temperatures between May and November. Rain can be expected at any time of year but the wet season is technically from November to April. The rainy season doesn't outrule travel though, as most of the rain comes in brief showers which pass quickly and can even be refreshing. Fiji does occasionally experience cyclones and these occur during the wet season. The smaller islands tend to recieve less rain. The driest months are April, May, June and October. The best time to visit Fiji is any time between late March and early December. June to October, the winter months, can be the most pleasant time to visit as it is still warm but there is less humidity. The temperature of the ocean is pleasant all year.
