Weather and Water Temperature at Volivoli Beach Resort

Fiji is a tropical country with a maritime climate and the weather is fairly even all year round. The year is roughly divided into two seasons; ‘wet’ and ‘dry’.

The wet season, characterised by heavy brief local showers, generally begins in November and can extend through to April. Cyclones do occur in Fiji, and are typically confined to the wet season.

The dry season, which runs from May to November, has cooler temperatures and slight to moderate winds. Daytime temperatures range from an average of 25°C (77°F) during the dry season, up to 31°C (88°F) in the wetter months whilst evenings are marginally cooler and can drop to just 21°C (70°F).

Water temperatures are broadly similar throughout the region; the coolest waters are usually to be found in July to October with an average of approximately 26°C (78°F).

Warmer waters are common in February- June with averages of approximately 28°C (82°F).

Most guests find that a 3mm shorty and possibly a rash vest is suitable for the water temperature in the warmer months, and 3mm – 5mm  long for the rest of the year. However, for guests who feel the cold easily, especially with repeated diving, we recommend to bring an extra vest / hood
