Fiji: When To Go

When is the best time to go to Fiji?

A perfect balance of lush tropical rainforests and pristine beach hideaways, the islands of Fiji offer two distinct experiences. Although the sun shines nearly every day in the remote islands and the temperatures hover in the 70-80 region, Fiji does have a wet season from November to April, where brief heavy storms may occur. They are more likely to frequent the lush islands of the northeast and the main island. Here are the popular requests from travelers to use as a starting guide.

Best Time to Dive
April – November, although you can dive year-round from most resorts in Fiji. Coral spawning occurs on the full moon, either November or December yearly (Mother Nature likes to keep us guessing). Although this is a highlight for many divers, it reduces visibility afterward. The diving also varies greatly by region in Fiji, and it is essential to let us know your experience level and what you hope to experience in your dives. We can then ensure we match the correct location.

Best Time to Honeymoon
April – October. Perfect for a gorgeous beach available just to the two of you all day. You can stretch into November if you want to explore the waterfalls and the beach areas. Be sure to ask us about adult-only resorts in Fiji.

Best Time for a Family Vacation
Year Round. Fiji Islands are famous for Australian and New Zealand family vacations. Some luxury resorts offer family weeks, usually in January and June. Ask us for a current list of offers and dates. Free meals for kids and free babysitting are not uncommon either.

Best Time for an Adventure Vacation
March – November, to enjoy the rainforest as well as the beaches. The rainfall in March and November brings the waterfalls and flowers to their peak. Bamboo river rafting, ziplining, island hopping, and visits to local villages are all fine during these times. Let us know if you have a specific interest in mind.

Best Time to Stay in Overwater Bungalows
April-November. Warm tropical waters make it a delight to swim out from your private stairway into the ocean. An adults-only resort, it is the perfect location to celebrate a honeymoon or other special occasion.

Best time to visit New Zealand and Fiji
We like this combination of adventure and beach relaxation. Best done August – November or March–May. But it’s great to do year-round; we simply pair resorts and locations you visit by the time you travel.
