Tahiti Climate and Weather

Like all of French Polynesia, Tahiti enjoys tropical, warm, and humid weather all year round, averaging eight hours of sunshine per day over a year. The islands experience a rainy season, generally between late October and early March, when cloudy skies and brief heavy rain showers can occur.

The rest of the year rain is rare and temperatures constantly high, tempered sometimes by refreshing breezes. The water temperature ranges between 79F and 84F (26C to 29C) making for extremely pleasant bathing all year round.

The best time to visit Tahiti is between May and October, technically the winter months, when the weather is warm and sunny and rain is less likely. Some travellers may find the summer months uncomfortably hot and humid but they are somewhat less crowded.
