Weather

The climate of the South Pacific is very consistent and only experiences minor changes in temperature throughout the year. Unlike other parts of the world, there are only two seasons here; summer and winter. The average temperature in summer is 30°c and the average winter temperature is 25°c, allowing these islands to boast year-round desirable temperatures.

The higher islands such as Tahiti and Bora Bora can experience more wind due to their altitudes and exposition. The Eastern coasts are more exposed to trade winds and can have more rainfall.

Due to the location of these islands in the Pacific, there can often be a cool breeze on the islands which combines perfectly with the heat from the sun, making it the ideal weather for days outside exploring or sun-bathing on the beach.

Special Events

  • Honolulu Festival, Hawaii – March – A major event in the Hawaiian calendar this festival celebrates the culture of Hawaiian natives. Through educational programmes, activities, shows and carnivals this festival portrays the vibrant and fresh culture that Hawaii represents.
