French Polynesia is a tropical destination with lots of sun all year through and just enough rain for its luxuriant vegetation and its colorful flowers. It receives an annual average of 8 hours of sunshine per day. Temperatures range between 24°C and 30°C all year through and lagoon water temperature varies between 23°C and 26°C.
Thus, the climate of Polynesia -defined as marine tropical- is hot (average air temperature is 26.5°C) and humid (hygrometry : 75%) but tempered by the ocean. Polynesia experiences northeast and southeast trade winds converging to the equatorial zone which create 2 distinguished seasons: the dry season and the rainy season.
November to April is the wet season, the wettest month of which is January and August is the driest.
