When to Visit

The tropical atmosphere in Tonga lends itself to year-round travel. However, the peak tourist season is between May and October. This is when the climate is most pleasant, with lower humidity, drier conditions and slightly cooler temperatures.

The off-peak season, between November and April, is slightly hotter and more humid. However, it's a good time to visit for those seeking solitude and attractive deals. Just be aware that this period coincides with the Pacific cyclone season, so do keep an eye on the weather forecasts.
