When to Go

  • Tahiti enjoys a year-round tropical climate, but you're most likely to get good weather in the dry season, from May to October. During this time the weather is cooler, and the drier west and north coasts in particular will likely have lots of sun and clear skies – but this is the tropics and rain is possible at any time of year.
  • The rainy season begins in November and continues until the end of April, with frequent heavy showers and occasional storms, but you could also luck out and have clear skies.
  • The island has a rather busy social calendar year-round, but in July Pape’ete is in full swing with the Heiva.
