French Polynesia – A tropical climate
Tahiti and Bora Bora Weather Forecasts
At the Polynesian latitudes, it is summer all year round! However, you can distinguish two main Tahitian weather “seasons,” dry and rainy. The first lasts from March to November and has temperatures of between 71°F and 80°F/21°C and 27°C; the second, from December to late February, is a little warmer (between 77°F and 95°F/25°C and 35°C ), but Tahiti weather is also subject to tropical showers, which are like hot showers which rarely last longer than 30 minutes.
The temperature may appear high, but the trade winds from the Pacific blow all the time and refresh the air of the islands beautifully.
Being much further from the Equator, the archipelagos furthest to the south, the Austral and Gambier Islands, have cooler temperatures than the Society and Marquesas Islands. As for the Tuamotu Islands, it enjoys the record-breaking sunshine, reaching nearly 3,000 hours of sun per year.
The vegetation in French Polynesia is particularly luxuriant during the rainy season, or season of plenty, between November and March. This is also the best time for those who love to sample new tastes as all the tropical fruit are ripe.
