Peak & Off Peak Seasons

Peak and off peak seasons may be one of the biggest factors affecting your decision on went to travel to Fiji as the most popular times are not only more expensive but are also the busiest. July to August is usually one of the busiest periods as many families choose to holiday during the school holidays. Along with the Christmas/New Year period, the resorts are often filled with families taking a break during the Australian and New Zealand school holidays. If you’re travelling with the whole family, you might not have much choice in the matter however if you’re travelling as a couple or a group of friends, the off peak season is not only cheaper but can be more enjoyable and the best deals usually become available from March to October.

Weather

Being a tropical destination, Fiji weather is generally pleasant and fairly mild year round however the main difference between seasons are the wet and dry seasonal variations. Like most tropical climates, the wet season occurs during summer where high temperatures and increased humidity lead to higher levels of precipitation and in Fiji, an increased risk of cyclones. The summer wet season runs from November to March with temperatures in the low 30s and only dropping to a balmy 27 degrees Celsius overnight. Situated in the southern hemisphere, Fiji’s dry season occurs during the cooler months from May to September when temperatures remain warm enough to enjoy swimming, sunbathing and a range of Fiji’s most popular tours and activities.

Overall, the best time to visit Fiji is from late October to early November when the cost of getting and staying here has not yet reached its peak, the weather is dry, settled and warm and the beaches and resorts are far less crowded as school is still in at this time of year.
