Best Times to Visit Bora Bora

The best times to go to Bora Bora are November and April. These short shoulder seasons offer fine weather with temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s. High season runs from May to October when rain showers are isolated and the number of tourists swells. Low season stretches from December to March when the weather is wet and visitors become mosquito bait. But really anytime is a good time to visit Bora Bora, since the weather is warm year-round.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

May-October

This six-month peak season sees heavy crowds (August is an especially popular month among European travelers). The climate during this season is at its most dry and temperatures range from the upper 60s to the mid-80s. The only downside is the hotel and resort prices. You'll find accommodation rates at their peak. 

Key Events: 

November

Following peak season, November is a good time to catch Bora Bora with depleted crowds. Temperatures range from the low 70s to the mid-80s and you might find a discounted room rate. While Bora Bora accommodations are notoriously pricey no matter the season, the low and shoulder seasons are known to sport some deals. 

Key Events: 

  • Hawaiki Nui Va'a (November)

December-March

In Bora Bora, you never know what you're going to get between December and March. At times, rainy conditions (and mosquitoes) characterize these months, but at other times the sun will be bright and the sky clear. The erratic weather keeps peak season tourists away, making this time of year ideal for bargain hunters. And after all, the temperatures still hover in the comfortable mid-70s and mid-80s. 

Key Events: 

  • Bora Bora Liquid Festival (December)
  • Taurus Varua (January)

April

In April, the temperatures in Bora Bora fluctuate between the lower 70s and the upper 80s. Because it's right before the high season, April serves as a great month to vacation in picture-perfect weather sans tourist crowds. For icing on the cake, you might find discounted rates on hotels or resorts.
