There are pros and cons to visiting a destination during any time of the year. Find out what you can expect during your ideal travel time, from weather and climate, to holidays, festivals, and more.
Fiji in January-April
These months bring rainy season to Fiji, and temperatures are the warmest of the year. Showers are heavy but brief, meaning there’s still plenty of sunlight to go around. Travelers visiting during these months should expect to experience damp conditions and should be prepared for tropical storms. Large crowds aren’t likely this time of year, even at popular destinations such as the Kula Eco wildlife park, making it a great time to visit.
Holidays & Events
- January 1: New Year’s Day
- March/ April: Easter, referred to as “Children’s Sunday” by Fijian Methodist, is celebrated with a mass and musical performances.
Holi, a popular event across the nation, is indicative of the Indian influence on Fijian culture. It usually takes place in late March and involves a gathering where people throw multi-colored powder at one another, signifying the richness of Hindu culture, the melding of different peoples, and the vibrant palate of spring. The festival is characterized by a carefree demeanor as well as music and dance.
Fiji in May-June
Water temperatures are pleasant and the weather is marked in May through June by warm days and cooler nights, without rising to extremes. The mild temperatures are ideal for outdoor discovery and as this is the dry season, activities such as hiking and biking are even more pleasurable. Since this is a desirable time to travel to Fiji, crowds are higher, but you can still travel to highlights and take in the beauty of the islands at your own pace.
Holidays & Events
- June 15: Queen’s Birthday
Fiji in July-September
With the dry season at its peak during July this is the most popular time to visit Fiji. Tourism is in full swing as the sunny skies and warm temperatures ranging from 60 to 80⁰F bring travelers to the islands. Bask in the warm rays on a white sand beach, embark on a snorkeling excursion, or kayak the crystalline waters during this idyllic time of year.
Holidays & Events
- September: Sugar Festival in Lautoka
In August, the Bula Festival is celebrated with colorful parades, elaborately decorated floats, and dancing in the streets. The revelry culminates with a beauty pageant choosing Miss Bula. This annual festival is typically held in the town of Nadi and visitors and locals alike can witness the vivid display of color and culture.
One of Fiji’s longest running celebrations, the Hibiscus Festival held annually in August in the city of Suva, draws people from near and far. This joyous celebration features dance performances, food and handicraft stalls, singing and dancing competitions, and parades in the street. Miss Hibiscus will be crowned as the excitement of this vibrant festival comes to a close.
Fiji in October-December
It's widely believed that October and November are the best months to visit Fiji. This is due to fact that tourist season is not in full swing and direct, overhead sunlight is lacking. The Fijian sun and humidity can be stifling at times, but these months don’t see that intensity or the dampness of the rainy season too frequently. Travelers should be aware that late November and December bring the potential of tropical storms and hot days. Overall, this is a good time to enjoy a less crowded Fiji in a fairly temperate climate.
Holidays & Events
- October/ November: Diwali, or the Hindu festival of lights
October 10 marks Fiji Day, the anniversary of Fijian independence. A week of celebrations involving a yearly theme and cultural performances lead up to the day. Then, festivities that recognize the unity between Fijian and Hindu cultures take place.

While Fiji is known for its breathtaking white-sand beaches, crystal turquoise waters, and tropical marine life, what truly defines this small island nation is the spirit of its villages. While their culture is steeped in stark tradition, Nayawa Village residents seem to revel in exposing visitors to the areas where they live, work, and play. Fijians have Melanesian roots, but many of their traditions are derived from Polynesian culture.
One of the most prominent and common of these traditions is the ritual drinking of kava. The bitter root of the kava plant, which is part of the pepper family, is the key ingredient to the Polynesian brew that’s consumed in Hawaii, Samoa, Vanuatu, and on several other Pacific Islands. It plays a crucial role in Fijian culture, and guests visiting Nayawa village will be invited to drink it as part of a welcome ceremony. Another variety of plant that’s a cornerstone of Fijian life is the coconut tree. The mineral-rich soil of the island nation yields coconuts that are regarded as the best in the world, but they aren’t only a food source. The shells, husks, tree trunks, and fronds are utilized as weaving and building materials, nutritional supplements, and even musical instruments.
While guests are welcome, there is a hierarchy and rules that shape life in Nayawa Village. The chief oversees day-to-day operations, appointed based not only on his or her family tree but also on merit. The son or daughter of a chief won’t necessarily inherit the position if someone in the family is better suited. The village elders are also top-ranking members in the community and have a heavy hand in important decision making. Visitors are advised to cover their knees and shoulders and remove hats upon entering the village as a sign of respect.
The residents of Nayawa Village extremely proud of their education system, and they have reason to be. Schools in Fiji are among the best in the region, with free schooling for children from six to 16 years old. Students are encouraged to think creatively and teachers are known for successfully catering to different types of learners, despite working with limited resources. Education is overseen by the government or churches, which in are mostly Methodist. Stepping into Nayawa Village is stepping into a different world that thrives all the same.

Kula Eco Park
Kula Eco Park is where visitors and locals alike flock to catch a glimpse of the vibrant and varied wildlife that calls Fiji home. The park is dedicated to the preservation of species, exemplified by their endangered animals breeding program. Among some of the species the program has put forth efforts to save are the bright green and white-crested iguanas, the regal peregrine falcon, and the vocal ground frog. The proceeds from guests’ entrance fees are what facilitates the park’s conservation efforts. While visiting, guests have the opportunity to speak candidly with wildlife experts, see the incubation centers, and more.
While in recent years, the park has installed a number of more modern and adventurous attractions such as a zip-down roller coaster rail and a water slide, the driving force of their livelihood is still their wildlife exhibits. While exploring the grounds, visitors can behold the habitats different insects, iguanas, snakes, turtles, and a full color palate of bird species. They’ve won numerous awards for their expansive forest walkways which offer exposure to Fiji’s true biodiversity. But their environmental efforts and vivid displays aren’t the only way Kula Eco Park gives back to the community: they also provide free nature classes for local students in Fiji.
