When to Go
Tuamotu has two seasons—the wet (November to April) and the dry (May to October). As the archipelago is farther north than the Society group, it tends to be a little hotter than the average 85°F (29°C) in the summer and the average 80°F (27°C) in winter that other islands experience. The wet season can be wetter, too. The upside is more sunny days and a constant lagoon temperature of around 78°F (25°C).
The big event is the Arii Mata Tini Va'a Canoe race, in Rangiroa in late May.
