Fiji Activities


Fiji's winter runs from April through October. This is the time of year that low-pressure systems build in the Southern Hemisphere, south of New Zealand, and send consistently huge swells toward Fiji. Surf conditions can range as high as 8-10 feet with 12-20 foot faces.

Winter is the best time of year for experienced surfers to surf Fiji.

Everyone wants to know the best time of year to visit Fiji. The answer is: it depends. Fiji has wonderful, tropical weather all year round with air and water temperatures in the mid-70's to mid-80's Fahrenheit, but there are two distinct surfing seasons in Fiji. The winter "cool" season produces the biggest waves, while the summer "warm" season has shorter swells and lighter winds.

The type of Fiji surf that you're looking for will determine what the best time of year to visit is.

November through March is warmer, wetter, and more humid. Swells are shorter in duration, winds are lighter, and the weather is hotter. Expect glassy water and afternoon showers.

Less experienced surfers will have an easier time surfing in Fiji during the summer, but don't let the smaller waves fool you. Surfing in Fiji takes skill and confidence in your abilities, and comfort in the water. The breaks are all over coral reefs, which are not the best place for beginners to learn to surf in Fiji.

With over 4000 square miles of coral reef, Fiji Islands offer divers unparalleled marine biodiversity. If you feel like going beyond the beautiful reef dives venture into reef passages and come face to face with Grey Reef sharks, Silvertips, Hammerheads and White Tips. If you’d like to get to know them a bit better and at closer range, expect an adrenalin rush from what is known as the ‘Best shark dive in the world’ as you dive with the sharks observing experienced Fijian divers carry out the famous ‘shark feeding.

If you’re looking for an amazing experience at a slightly slower pace, you can swim with the giant Manta Rays. Between May and October these elegant creatures bless the waters off Manta Ray Island with a visit, MantaRays are one of the largest fish in the ocean, some span as big as 6.5metres. Fiji is also home to five species of turtles, the most famous being the Hawksbill Turtle, which are now aprotected species. Many of the resorts now have conservation programs to look after these precious locals. Our moderate water temperature makes for year-round diving and the visibility is a photographers dream.
