Our favourite time of year to visit is June, when the winds have dropped and the tropical rains of the wet season have finished, leaving a lush verdant landscape and calmer coastal conditions. The humidity is lower at this time of year and the temperatures are lovely - ideal for a day at the beach or an island-hopping cruise.

Month-by-month guide to travelling in Fiji

Nukubati Island, Vanua Levu

Visiting Fiji in May - October

The dry season is cooler and less humid than the wet season and a more popular time of the year to travel. The waters encircling Fiji's islands are warm and perfect for swimming, snorkelling or diving, while the beaches are at their pristine best. Although it can be busy in certain resorts there are enough locations on land or on water for some rest and relaxation.

Events & Festivals

  • Bula festival (July): Celebrated in Nadi, this festival brings the city to a standstill with marching bands and a lively parade complete with dancers and hundreds of entertainers in traditional Fijian costumes.
  • Independence Week (October): A nationwide celebration of independence with a week of religious and cultural ceremonies and events.
