Weather in Fiji

Fiji weather is very agreeable on the whole. Along with its beautiful beaches and great selection of resorts, this only helps to make the South Pacific island nation a popular vacation destination. Even during the austral winter (June through September), visitors can expect the daytime temperatures to rise into the 70's or 80's, and the nighttime temps usually never dip below 70 degrees. It is little wonder then that so many travelers from Australia or New Zealand choose Fiji as a destination of choice for their winter breaks.

There are basically two main seasons when it comes to Fiji weather. You can refer to these seasons as summer and winter, or as the wet season and the dry season. For all intents and purposes, adding separate seasons for autumn and spring doesn't really apply. It should be noted that during the summer season, or wet season, rain showers can be heavy, though they usually don’t last too long and are typically followed by bouts of intense sunshine. Also, this is the season for cyclones, or hurricanes. Fiji averages about one cyclone a year, and thankfully, they usually pass through quickly and don’t cause too many problems for residents or tourists.

Summer in Fiji: Consult a Fiji weather tracker in the austral summer (November through April), and you are likely to see the temperature falling somewhere in the 80's or low 90's. In fact, the average summer temperature is 88 degrees. As far as rainfall is concerned, summer in Fiji is commonly referred to as the wet season, so there is a greater chance of rain. It can actually rain for several days in a row. Another thing to consider in summer is the relatively high humidity—a Fiji hotel room with air conditioning can be a very welcoming thing in the summer.

Winter in Fiji: Should you find yourself referencing a Fiji weather tracker in the winter, chances are good that the daytime temperature will be in the 80's. After all, the average high for the season is 83 degrees. Low temps can fall into the 70's, and as is true year round, it is cooler up in the mountains than it is on the coast. Due in part to the inviting temperatures and the relative lack of rainfall, winter is arguably the best time to travel to Fiji. July and August, it is worth mentioning, are the busiest tourist months.
