Best Times to Visit Tahiti

The best time to visit Tahiti is between May and October. Although the temperatures are balmy year-round, Tahiti's winter season enjoys less humidity. Tahiti really only experiences two distinct seasons: Winter brings less rain and pleasant temperatures while the summertime – November through April – can be quite hot and humid (especially December), not to mention rainy. But regardless of when you travel, you can expect hotel rates to be high.

May-October

The months between May and October constitute Tahiti's dry season. Average temperatures range from the upper 60s to the mid-80s, giving travelers ideal beach weather. Plus, the humidity is at its lowest. But there is a downside: It's peak tourist season and hotel prices are high. (But then again, they're always high.)
