Figure out the best time to visit tropical Fiji based on weather conditions, peak seasons and prices.
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.
