When is the best time to visit Fiji?

Planning Fiji holidays can be tiring stuff...what brand of suntan lotion to take, how many swimsuits to pack - the list of first world problems is endless! Fiji is a year round destination, but you've got to make sure you pick the right time. We recommend the off peak season (March-October) to beat the crowds of families, with Fiji's dry season occuring between May-September.
