Best Time To Visit Fiji

The best time to visit Fiji is between late October and early November for optimal tropical conditions without the holiday crowds. However our favourite thing about Fiji is the year-round warm weather, 12 months of perfect snorkelling temperatures and opportunities for sunbathing. Temperatures tend to average a high of 31°C through the year, so there really is no bad time to go. Of course depending on the kind of holiday you want to have and what you'll want to do while you're in Fiji, the best time to visit may differ. You'll probably want to consider influences like the weather as well as school holiday crowds, pricing and the best conditions for activities such as surfing.
