Located in the southern hemisphere, Fiji’s climate is warm and delightfully tropical year-round. The average temperature in Fiji is 25°C (77°F), and is routinely temperate. In the summer (December and January), temperatures may climb to 30°C (86°F) at the peak of the day. In the winter (July and August), temperatures may sink to 18°C (64°F) in the evenings. A light wrap during evening meals will certainly keep you comfortable.
There really is no undesirable time to visit Turtle Island. Located on the leeward northwestern coast of Fiji, Turtle Island is in a drier zone, and thus experiences less tropical rainfall than the more humid southeastern shores. During the summer months (November to April) rain may occur on an afternoon, cooling off the island from the heat of the day. If you visit us during the winter months (May to October), you may experience no rain whatsoever.
The ocean surrounding Fiji usually has a pleasant temperature around 27°C (81°F), so ocean activities, such as swimming, snorkeling and diving can be enjoyed year-round. The nearshore waters are usually clearest during the winter season, when scuba divers enjoy increased visibility around the coral reefs.
Truly, Turtle Island is a tropical paradise and playground where the sun kisses the beaches, the wind rustles the trees, and the rain simply cools the island and nurtures the vibrant flora and fauna.
