Climate and Weather in the Fiji Islands
Fiji is a country of Oceania that is located to the east of Vanuatu, to the west of Tonga and to the south of Tuvalu. Due to their positioning in the South Pacific, these areas benefit from a very tropical climate.
The Fiji Island's climate only has two seasons: hot and very hot. Indeed, the Islands within the southern hemisphere have actually never known negative temperatures - the "fresher" months between May and November have temperatures described as those in the spring from a European point of view - while the warmer months, therefore from December to April, reach temperatures high enough to exceed 30° C. If you decide to fly to the Fiji Islands during this hot season, upon arriving at the Nadi International airport you will automatically step from a European winter into a Fijian summer. The weather in the Fiji Islands will quickly make you forget the greyness of the Old Continent.
The capital, Suva, is located in one of the archipelagic regions that receives the most rain, especially between January and April. On a country wide level, March is generally the wettest month, while July is generally the driest. The climate in the Fiji Islands is such that the country can also experience tropical cyclones, the riskier months being between November and April. The northwestern islands are also quite vulnerable to hurricanes, that can usually strike in both January and February.
When autumn settles in Europe and North America, why not enjoy the sunshine and summer temperatures of the Fiji Islands? Lounge on the beaches of Yasawa-i-Rara, explore the mountains and tropical dry forests on the various islands or go snorkeling off the coast of Taveuni?
