Best Times to Visit Fiji

The best time to go to Fiji is whenever you have the chance. This is Fiji we're talking about! Temperatures stay pretty constant through the year, with highs resting in the 80s; however, from November to April, you might have to contend with some tropical storms. For the Fiji experience that you've always dreamed of, the best time to visit is from July to September, but you will have to contend with sky-high prices as this is also peak season. The shoulder seasons are short – May to June and October – but they're nice times to visit since heavy crowds will either have just departed or have yet to descend.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

July-September

The months between July and September constitute high season in Fiji. The sun shines bright, warming the islands to daily temps that range from the mid-60s to the mid-80s. But keep in mind that this is the most popular and most expensive time to visit, so you'll see flocks of tourists forking over hundreds of dollars to soak in the Fijian rays. Since this is winter break for many Australians and New Zealanders, you might also spot a lot of families.

Key Events:

October

October is one of the short shoulder seasons in Fiji, coming right after the high season and right before the rainy season. Prices on hotels and flights should go down a bit, while daily temperatures remain high, ranging from the upper 60s to upper 80s.

Key Events:

  • Fiji Day (October)
  • Diwali (October)
  • The Rising of the Balolo (October-November)

November-April

November through April constitutes Fiji's wet season (or "typhoon season"), and the weather is characterized by high temperatures and short storms. But if you travel now, you'll save the most on airfare and accommodations. Temperatures, however, are at their annual peak and fluctuate between the low 70s and low 90s.

Key Events:

May-June

May and June are another short shoulder season during which you can visit Fiji without all the crowds. You could also score discounted airfare and hotel rates. Daytime temperatures range between the mid-60s and mid-80s, making beach-bumming perfectly hospitable.
