Climate Fiji Islands
The climate on the Fiji Islands is tropical and maritime. It is warm all year round with quite high precipitation sums. Despite the small extension of the island state, one can distinguish climatically between two regions and two seasons. In the summer from November to April the maximum values are mostly around 30 degrees. In addition, it is very humid, and in the afternoon, heavy rain showers and thunderstorms often come down. This is due to trade winds, which direct very humid sea air to the islands. In the summer there is also the danger that the Fijis lie on the track of a tropical cyclone. In the winter months from May to October it is somewhat cooler. The maximum temperatures are usually below 30 degrees, at times only 26 to 27 degrees. There is considerably less precipitation than in summer, and it is not so humid. The southeast of the Fiji Islands, with annual rainfall between 3000 and 6000 mm, is much wetter than the northwest of the country, which lies in the rain shadow of the trade winds. There only 1700 mm of rain is measured per year, and in winter it is rather dry. In the southeast there is a lot of rainfall in both seasons.
For trips to the Fiji Islands, the months of April to October are recommended. Then it is not quite as humid and hot as in the summer months, and rainfall is lower. The water temperatures invite you to swim and dive all year round.
