Weather in Early March

My husband and I are thinking of planning our familymoon (with toddler) early March and wondering if anyone can offer insight into weather around this time. We are planning 7 nights at Paradise Tavenui and would hate for it to rain everyday!

Taveuni is on the western wet side of Fiji and in March you can expect at least a shower or thunderstorm daily. Can't predict the weather anywhere unfortunately.

From experience it will be pretty hot and humid. Been to Fiji a couple of times in March and A/C is a must.

Have been to Paradise Taveuni in March a few years ago. the bure we stayed in did not have A/C. It was hot and humid, but the screened louvered windows allowed the ocean breeze in, which made for a comfortable nights sleep. Only experienced the brief tropical downpour usually in the afternoon. Have stayed at other resorts near Taveuni. Had one day of rain, and it rained at night. Unfortunately, can't predict the weather. If you want to walk on a soft, white sand beach, you will be disappointed. There is NO beach at all at Paradise Taveuni.

It takes a little over an hour to get to the resort. The road is paved a short way, then dirt....bumpy, very narrow in spots, and curvy. Very scenic as you pass by other resorts, towns.

The flight from Nadi to Taveuni can be an experience depending on weather. Views of the water and islands are breathtaking. The plane is a twin engine otter seating about 16 people. It can be late departing and returning to Nadi. If the flight is full, there is a chance all your luggage will not make the flight with you. Happened to us two out of four flights to Taveuni. Suggest packing your swim suits, and a change of clothes or two in your carry on bags. The rest of our luggage arrived on a later flight the same day.

Would ask the resort, if they can arrange for a carseat for the van to the resort. Might also contact Air Pacific for seats for your child on the plane.

Hope this helps.
