Fiji Travel Guide
When To Go & Weather
The most popular time to visit is from July to August, during the Australian school holidays and over the Christmas & New Year period. This is when Fiji is the busiest and airfare and accommodation prices are at their peak.
Couples can take advantage of quieter periods during February, March, June & November to secure better prices and fewer crowds.
Fiji experiences two seasons - summer and winter. Summer starts in November and lasts until March-April. During this time, temperatures average about 30 degrees and the weather is typically hot and humid with a higher chance of rain.
In winter months, the daytime temperatures still average around 26-27 degrees and the weather is typically drier and clearer. It’s a great time for those looking to do surfing, snorkelling and diving.
The Fijian dollar is the official currency of Fiji. When exchanging money in Fiji, go to banks, exchange counters at the airport and accredited operators.
ATMs are widely available in Fijian cities. Make sure to check with your bank about any foreign ATM withdrawal fees. If you are travelling to rural areas, be sure to bring enough cash for your trip.
Credit cards are widely accepted at most large hotels, restaurants and shops.
Fiji has three official languages: Fijian, Hunustani and English. As a tourist, you should have no problem getting around speaking English.
