Weather InformationFiji has a South Sea tropical climate, with two major seasons: a dry season from June through October and a wet season from November through April. The dry season is mild, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 84 degrees. The wet season can be hot and humid, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 88 degrees. Rain can occur sporadically during this season, but is typically followed by sunshine. The wet season is also typhoon season.
Crowd InformationThe high season gets more crowded than the low season, especially in the main tourism belt that includes the western coast of Viti Levu (the main island) and the neighboring offshore island groups of Mamanuca and Yasawa. Major festivals rarely draw vast numbers of overseas visitors; however, some events such as the town of Suva's Christmas carnival, Latouka City's Sugar Festival (September), Nadi Town's Bula Festival (July), and the Savusavu South Pacific Music Festival (November) attract locals.
Closure InformationHotels, restaurants, and shops remain open throughout the year, except during major maintenance or renovation. Some exclusive resorts have a no-children policy; however many welcome children during the Christmas holiday.
When to SaveLower prices are offered on airfare and accommodations during the low and shoulder seasons.
When to BookThere is no rule of thumb when it comes to booking. Travel during the high season can be expensive, so it is wise to book as far in advance as possible. Last-minute deals can be typically found in the low and shoulder seasons.
