With its gorgeous beaches, luxury private-island resorts and delightful people, Fiji really is the perfect honeymoon destination. However we often find that our clients don’t know whether their preferred wedding/honeymoon dates are also the best time to travel to Fiji. Let the team at Remarkable Honeymoons help!
Where is Fiji?
Fiji is a South-Pacific archipelago of 333 tropical islands. It lies roughly one third of the way between New Zealand and Hawaii. An approximately 3-hour flight from Auckland or Sydney, Fiji is perfectly secluded and romantic.
Fiji enjoys a year-round tropical climate. Temperatures stay consistently around 85°F and gentle trade winds keep the islands breezy and comfortable. The sea also stays warm (around 80°F) making swimming and snorkeling fun all year long.
Temperatures are warmest in this southern-hemisphere country during the summer months of November to April. This is also when you can expect the most humidity and rain.
High vs Low Season
Fiji pricing peaks during the months of June to September and December to January. These times are busier and more expensive.
Snorkeling in Fiji
Fiji is a prime snorkeling location. Our clients can’t wait to see the coral reefs, sharks, rays, turtles, and colorful tropical fish. If that sounds like something you would enjoy too, please bear in mind that the seas are most likely to be calm and clear during the dry season, May to October. Between November and May, the winds can make the water choppier, affecting visibility.
Best Months for Honeymoon Couples
With all the above in mind, we often recommend May/June and September/October as the very best times to travel to Fiji. The weather will be perfect and there won’t be so many crowds. Of course this also coincides with peak wedding season in the U.S.!
