Climate and Average Weather in Vanuatu

Vanuatu has a subtropical climate. Temperatures are generally between 21 and 32 degrees Celsius (70-80° Fahrenheit), with night temperatures between 15 and 27 degrees Celsius (60-70° Fahrenheit). Rain can occur throughout the year, but mostly falls between January and April. Vanuatu has fairly high amounts of precipitation per year. On average 2450 mm (96.4 inches) per year is recorded and the northern islands can be considerably wetter than the southern islands.

The best time to visit Vanuatu is from May till October. If you are traveling north we would suggest July and August. More southwards we recommend May, June, September and October as the better travel months. That's because it's a little cooler south than in the northern part. Cyclones are possible between December and April.
