Fiji Weather and Climate

Fiji has a warm tropical climate perfect for beachside holidays and is a key reason for Fiji's reputation for being one of the worlds most sought after holiday destinations. The best months for holidaying in regards to Fiji weather are late March through to early December.

Maximum temperatures in Fiji rarely move out of the 26°C / 79°F to 31°C / 88°F range all year round. A cooling trade wind blows from the east south-east for most of the year. It usually drops to a whisper in the evening.

Fiji does have a wet season. The wet season is normally from late December to mid March and results from the southerly movements of the South Pacific Convergence Zone. The wet season is characterised by heavy, brief local showers and contributes to most of Fiji's annual rainfall. Annual rainfall on the main islands is between 2000mm and 3000mm on the coast and low lying areas, and up to 6000mm in the mountains.

There is also a distinct difference between the rainfall in the east and west side of Viti Levu. The west being the dry side and east being the wet side of the Island. Seashell@Momi and Scuba Bula are on the west / dry side of the island!
