Fiji has a tropical marine climate, with warm weather all year round. The hot and humid dry season is from November to April, with temperatures averaging between 77°F (25°C) and 86°F (30°C). From May to October, during the wet season, the weather is slightly cooler and less humid.

Fiji is subject to cyclones, particularly between the months of November and April. Though they don't occur every year, expats living in Fiji for the long term are likely to encounter this unnerving weather phenomenon. Tropical depressions, which can turn into cyclones, are carefully monitored during cyclone season and the public is kept updated. The best way to keep safe is to stay informed and heed any government safety advice.
