Tahiti Climate

Tahiti and her islands, get sun all year long!


The French Polynesia is a tropical destination with lots of sun all year through and just enough rain for its luxuriant vegetation and its colorful flowers.

It receives in average 2,500 to 2,900 of sunshine per year. (ie: 8 hours of sun per day). Temperatures range between 24°C and 30°C all year through and lagoon water temperature varies between 23°C and 26°C.

Thus, the climate of the French Polynesia - defined as marine tropical - is hot (average air temperature is 26.5°C) and humid (hygrometry: 75%) but tempered by the ocean. Thus, the French Polynesia is submitted to northeast and southeast trade winds converging to the equatorial zone which create 2 distinguished seasons : the dry season and the humid season.
  • The dry season - also called Austral winter - taking place between April and October brings an expected coolness, July and August being the coolest months of the year due to southeast trade winds called maraamu. As a consequence a cotton sweater will often be enjoyable in the evening (or early in the morning).


  • The humid season - also called Rainy season - starts in November and ends in March. It brings mugginess, humidity as well as heavier and more frequent rains than in the dry season. During that season, tropical storms may occur. Winds can reach speeds of over 220 km/h and can eventually evolve to a cyclone, an extremely rare event though. French Polynesia was touched lastly by cyclones at the beginning of the 90's after having been hit 6 consecutives times in 1982-1983 (this had not happen since 1906!).
