The best time to visit Samoa is during the dry winter season between May and October.
Year-around temperatures average 28°C (82°F) in the coastal areas; humidity averages 80 per cent
The mountainous interior of the island receives considerably more rainfall than the coastal area.
The wet summer season lasts from November to April, with occasional cyclones.
High season: Mid-December to early-January when overseas Samoans return for the holidays, and from May to October – the latter months coincide with most of the major Tongan festivals.
Prices remain fairly constant year round but hotel and airline reservations need to be booked in advance.
