We researched the best time to visit idyllic Fiji based on all the important holiday factors.
Best time to visit Fiji:
October to early November is a great time to visit Fiji for the perfect balance of affordable accommodation, dry weather and smaller crowds. This time of year is not quite peak season (Christmas holidays), so the prices haven’t spiked and the resorts are not as crowded. This is also just before the wet season starts, so you can expect mostly dry days.
Fiji has warm weather all year, with highs of 26-30°C, so it’s a case of finding the driest time of year to visit.
Fiji is a popular destination for Australian families, so steer clear of Australian school holidays if you want to find quieter times to visit.
Weather & prices:
Cheapest time to visit Fiji: Look for flight and hotel deals in January and February.
Best time to visit Fiji, weather-wise: September to November has pleasant temperatures and minimal rain.
Cheapest time to visit during Christmas: Fiji is a family paradise and spending the Christmas break on the islands is a popular idea. Stays over the Christmas break (22 December to 5 January) can skyrocket to average $161.94 per night according to HotelsCombined but pop in earlier (between 10-24 November) and rooms can cost an average of $87 per night. Prices quoted are for 4-star accommodation based on 2018-2019 stays.
Best time to visit Fiji for...
- A honeymoon: For a quiet and peaceful honeymoon, you’ll probably want to avoid December. We’d recommend September to November for the best weather and quieter resorts.
- Surfing: You can surf year-round, but Fiji’s winter season, which is April to October, is best.
- Fishing: Fiji is great for fishing year-round. Check Fiji Fishing Charters for a guide to the best time for certain types of fish.
- Snorkelling and diving: You can dive year-round, but according to Dive The World visibility tends to peak in July and December when the water is cooler.
