Choosing the best time to visit Vanuatu is really a personal preference, however there are a few things to consider when trying to decide. It really depends on where you're staying and what you hope to get out of your holiday to Vanuatu. The best time to visit Vanuatu may be different for everyone, but the following factors should offer a pretty good indication on what will be the best time to visit Vanuatu for you.
Thanks to Vanuatu's beautiful tropical climate, the weather is generally good all year round, however conditions are at their best from April to October when temperatures are a comfortable 18°C to 28°C. November to March sees the arrival of the wet season and although showers are generally brief and do not impact most tours and activities, they can also make conditions much warmer and more humid. Year-round water temperatures sit at a mild 22°C to 28°C, so no matter when you visit swimming is always enjoyable.
Peak and off peak seasons are also an important consideration. When is the best time to visit Vanuatu? The peak season is often the most expensive and is also the busiest time of year. Cost-wise, February and the earlier, wetter months of the year are a little slower and therefore offer some fantastic deals without the tourist crowds.
In saying that, it also means there will be fewer people to meet and not as many families for your children to make friends with. Australian school holiday periods are certainly the busiest and most expensive time to visit but do make for an exciting atmosphere with plenty of new friends to make.
