WHEN TO GO TO TAHITI

The Islands of Tahiti enjoy a hot, tropical climate all year round. May to October tend to be the drier, milder months (a wonderful time for Tahiti holidays and honeymoons) whilst November to March generally brings higher temperatures, increased rainfall and more humidity, but this time of year also brings amazing deals and savings!

From June to August, the south-easterly mara'amu wind blows across the islands. This varies in strength and duration, and it can sometimes be quite strong for a few days, making the water rather choppy in enclosed lagoons and a little rougher in the open ocean. However, this trade wind keeps the temperatures cooler than the hot and humid summer months, so the mara'amu is also a blessing!

The Tuamotu Islands are a slight exception to this weather pattern as they tend to have less rainfall during summer (November to March) than other parts of the country, making it a great option for those who prefer to travel during those months. The Tuamotus are also a paradise for divers, snorkellers and fishing fanatics as the marine life is especially abundant here. 

TAHITI FLIGHT INFORMATION

Flights to Tahiti operate most days from Los Angeles with Air Tahiti Nui, connecting with a number of airlines from London to LA. For an interesting stopover option via the East, there are also flights operating via Tokyo. The journey time is approximately 25 hours in total (we promise it is well worth it!). Ask your consultant about stopover options or upgrading to Premium Economy or Business Class.
