Taveuni, the third largest island in Fiji, is a lush tropical paradise. Taveuni weather is of a tropical climate, which results in only two seasons year round.
The first of these two seasons is simply referred to as “wet.” This wet season extends from November to March with temperatures averaging highs of 30 degrees Celsius and lows of 23 degrees Celsius at the very lowest. During this season you can expect rainfall up to 422mm in January and as low as 202mm in November.
The second of these two seasons conversely is referred to as “dry.” Now, get this: This dry season extends throughout the remaining months of the year with temperatures averaging highs identical to the wet season at 30 degrees Celsius and lows slightly lower at 22 degrees Celsius! During this season rainfall is still to be expected. The most rain this season is during May at an average of 207mm. The driest month of this season is July at only 99mm of average rainfall.
This gem is a part of the world untouched by the smog with which most of us are forced to coexist. Imagine a calender so simple that spring, summer, winter and fall are essentially words to be forgotten on the flight over. While the rain might deter you from planning your Taveuni holidays during the holiday months, consider this simple fix: Simply planning your stay on the southwestern portion of the island can significantly reduce the chance of needing an umbrella!
