Weather in the Bora Bora

Knowing the climatic conditions and seasonal events is important when thinking about the best time to travel to Bora Bora. The climate in Bora Bora lies between the wet and dry zones, the tropical monsoon climate. The dry season is relatively short and spans the months of June to October. Even in these dry months, there are rainfalls and showers. The rainy season can extend over several days and is very humid. Despite the rainy season, the sun can also shine and provide a warm and friendly atmosphere.

One of the most amazing things about the weather in Bora Bora is that hurricanes are rare. Even though a hurricane is a rare event, it could occur in the summer. You might want to reconsider a trip during the summer months, especially January and February.

Average Temperature

The temperature is relatively stable with very little fluctuation. The months with moderate temperatures are the best months to visit Bora Bora.

During December to March, the temperatures are moderate but there are many weather fluctuations. These months are the coldest. It rains most of the time and breeds mosquitoes, which can make your stay quite uncomfortable.

November and April are considered the best months to visit, as the temperatures are moderate and fluctuate between the low 70s and mid 80s — just before the extreme weather sets in. The nice thing about this time is that the humid days alternate with a few sunny days, giving you a warm feeling. Even in the dry season, there is rainfall on some afternoons. If you are traveling at this time, you can save a few bucks by getting discounts at the luxurious resorts as the prices are a bit lower at the resorts.

Between May and October, temperatures can be very hot and dry. A trip at this time is ideal if swimming is part of your vacation package.

Average Tourist Volume

The beautiful sights of Bora Bora always attract tourists to the island. The dry season is when tourist traffic is at its highest. May to October are the peak months. During these peak months, prices for resorts and hotels go up. If you are on a tight budget, you may not want to travel to Bora Bora during this time because of the price increase.

During the rainy days, the amount of tourism drops. This is the case from December to March. This is also a time when prices at the beautiful, luxurious resorts are reduced to an affordable minimum. But it is also a time when a hurricane can occur.

The best month to travel is April, when the weather is dry, albeit with occasional showers if you want to avoid the crowds. November sees a drop in tourists as December approaches with heavy rain and unpredictable climatic events.
