The Best time of year for a wedding in Bora Bora

05

The “dry period” from April until November is the perfect time to get married in Bora Bora. During this time, the weather is just beautiful, the landscapes are breathtaking and mesmerizing and an endless summer atmosphere is guaranteed. The “dry season” is also a good time to visit French Polynesia. This period is known to offer the perfect temperatures between 25 - 30° (77 - 86 °F) in the daytime, magnificent sunsets, no rain and especially the humidity is at its lowest. It is also a great time to observe the underwater wildlife as whales are spotted from May until October.

From November to March it is the “wet season”, which means that it is often raining (it could rain for several days or even weeks, non-stop!), temperature and humidity are high. If you could, try and avoid visiting Bora Bora in January and February. These are the wettest months which makes it the riskiest time for outdoor activities like photography and less enjoyable for the landscapes.
