Fiji Weather

Fiji enjoys a tropical maritime climate without great extremes of heat or cold.

Typically, you can expect brief late afternoon rain showers at any time of year, with most rainfall in the mountainous regions of the main islands mainly away from coastal regions and the smaller islands.

The Mamanuca and Yasawa island groups receive the least amount of rainfall among the Fijian islands.

Suva, located on the South coast of Viti Levu, experiences much more rainfall than Nadi, which is located on the west coast. The wettest month is usually March and the driest month is July.

The wet summer season from November to April averages 30°C (86°F). During the rainy season, brief heavy afternoon showers and thunderstorms are common in the lee of the main islands.

Seasons

July and August are the busiest months, as well as the last week of March to mid-April, the last two weeks of May, the first two weeks of July, the middle of September and from mid-December to mid-January. During these periods, it’s best to book hotel rooms and airline seats well in advance.
