When to Go

  • The Tuamotus get more sunshine than any other archipelago in French Polynesia.
  • The shoulder seasons (April to May and October to November) are the best times to visit.
  • From December to March is the period when storms and rain are more likely.
  • Between June and September, the prevailing trade winds produce pleasantly mild weather but rough seas – not ideal for boat excursions.
  • Diving is excellent year-round, but the seas are calmer from October to May.
