When to Go
Anytime is a good time to visit Bora Bora due to the pleasant average temperature of 80°F (27°C). There are two basic seasons: the dry season from May to October (the Polynesian winter and busiest season) and the wet season from November to April (Polynesian summer), which can be very humid and cloudy. However, the heavy rains are often only short-lived.
The Tahiti Pearl Regatta, a yacht race around the Leeward Islands, takes place in the second week of May, the month-long Heiva Festival is in July, and the Hawaiki Nui Canoe Race is in early November.
