When to Visit

French Polynesia's tropical climate offers warm temperatures all year round. However, the best time to visit these pristine tropical islands is during the dry season, which runs from May to October. During these months, the weather is cooler and less humid, ideal for outdoor activities and beach excursions.

On the other hand, the wet season, extending from November to April, brings heavy rainfall and humidity. While certain travellers might avoid this time, it also offers the potential for better deals on flights and accommodation. Additionally, tropical rainfall in the islands often comes in quick showers, leaving the rest of your day for exploration under clearer skies.
