When to go
Fiji

With fairly consistent temperatures throughout the year, there's never really a bad time to visit Fiji. The country has two distinct seasons: wet and dry. The dry period from May to October is when most holidaymakers head to Fiji for comfortable temperatures, lower humidity and reduced risk of cyclones. We recommend only visiting in the wet season if you're prepared for the possibility of heavy rains interrupting scheduled activities. If you do travel then, be sure to visit the Mamanuca or Yasawa island groups, which are drier. If you're hoping to connect with the local culture during your visit, Fiji's multicultural population means there's always celebrations taking place – from Suva's lively Hibiscus Festival in August to Diwali and Christmas later in the year.
