Best month to visit for sunny calm days?

Would it be May or September? We want to avoid the AUS and NZ holidays too.

May and September are outside the rainy/cyclone season. Weather should be good, however, it can't be predicted or guaranteed. It won't be overly hot or humid as they are fall/ winter months in Fiji. Resorts in the Yasawas and Mamanucas are in the drier region. That said, it is possible to get a day or so rain when or where you go. At the very least, expect the brief tropical downpours usually in the afternoon.

The following link has information on weather, and the best months to go:

Australia and New Zealand posters will be able to provide information on school holidays.

Coming from the states, you will need an adapter angled for Australia for charging camera, laptop batteries, etc. The following for other suggestions of what to take with you:

Hope this helps.

These dates are for 2014.

Australian Sch holidays are staggered depending on which State is on holiday at the time, but holidays run from 20 Sept - 14 Oct. No holidays in May.

New Zealand from April 17 - 5 May, 26 Sept - 13 October.

Forgot to add...New Zealanders and Australians are likely to take kids on holiday either a week before / after these holiday dates.

We love Fiji in May and Oct. Temperature not extreme, water still nice and warm. Weather usually good but of course no guarantees at any time of the year.
