Weather all year round
Fiji's weather depends on the two seasons that punctuate the year: a dry season, which extends from May to October, and a rainy season from November to April. During the dry season, Fiji's average temperatures range from 22 to 27°C; during the rainy season, between 25 and 32°C.
The Fijian currency is the dollar fidjien (FJD). The cost of living on the two main large islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, is affordable. Outside, it's more complicated: between the price of the boat, the hotel, the activities, the bill increases quite quickly. It's that the majority of these services are high-end. Fortunately, there are passes that allow you to enjoy the Yasuwas and Mamanucas islands without breaking your piggy bank too much. Tips are not very common in use
To travel to Fiji, a valid passport, whose expiry date exceeds the departure date by three months, is required. A four-month visa is issued automatically and free of charge when you arrive in the country. Then count on 25 € for a two-month extension, the maximum duration of a stay in Fiji being six months.
No vaccinations are required to enter Fiji, unless you come from a country affected by yellow fever. Fiji is not infected with malaria. Only epidemics of dengue fever and, occasionally, typhoid are reported. To protect yourself from dengue fever, you must be careful with mosquitoes, the main vector of transmission. Mosquito nets, repellents and appropriate clothing (long sleeves), dark in colour, are the best ways to protect yourself against mosquito bites. Although temperatures rarely exceed 33°C and a pleasant breeze often makes the atmosphere very pleasant, the sun and its UV rays are harmful. On the water, the sun's reverberation is extremely powerful. Do not skimp on sunscreen, apply every two hours. If possible, cover your head to avoid getting sunstroke. Water is not drinkable in Fiji. Feel free to bring a bottle of mineral water!
