I've been To Tahiti in the summer wet season and had some of the best Bora Bora weather, and I've been there in the winter dry season and had lots of rain (and rainbows). The only guarantee regarding the weather in Bora Bora is that it will be warmer and more humid in the summer months than the winter months.

The Tahitian winter is the best Bora Bora weather for you if you prefer less heat and humidity. If you don't mind paying a little more, then go during high season to increase your chances of the best Bora Bora weather. We discuss this further on our best month to go to Bora Bora page.

If you want to save money, are on a budget, enjoy humidity, or want to avoid high tourist season, then the best time to go to Bora Bora is in the shoulder season or low season. I find that the more times I go, the more I appreciate all of the Bora Bora weather. Rainy days lend a sultry, exotic ambiance to adventures on the lagoon.

See our monthly weather chart to find out day and night temperatures, rainy days, sea temperature and sunshine hours.

I do think that your first visit to Bora Bora is the most important. As they say, first impressions count! Bora Bora and it's lagoon are at their prettiest with blue sky and sunshine. So take your first trip during the sunnier weather in Bora Bora. I wish you lots of sunshine for your first vacation.
