Tahiti's Climate
Average Temperature and Rainfall
The French Polynesian islands enjoy a tropical climate; the maximum number of hours of sunshine is close to 3000 per year in the Tuamotu islands!  The temperature, which is always pleasant, is cooled by the trade winds of the Pacific that blow throughout the year.  Tahiti's climate is perfect for a tropical romantic Tahitian honeymoon.

The average ambient temperature is 27° C, and the waters of the lagoons are a fairly constant 26° C.  While further away from the equator, the archipelagoes down south, (the Austral and Gambier), enjoy cooler temperatures. Because Tahiti and her Islands are below the Equator, the seasons are the reverse of those in the Northern Hemisphere.

Roughly speaking, there are two seasons: from November through April the climate is warmer and more humid, with daily high temperatures of about 85°F and lows of 70°F at night. More rain falls during the warmer season, but there are also many lovely sunny days with refreshing trade-winds during these months. In fact, during the period of November through March Tahiti still averages more sunshine hours than Honolulu. From May through October the climate is cooler and drier with daily high temperatures of about 82°F and lows of 70°F at night. Most people divide the year into two climate periods - 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.

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.
