Climate

Tahiti is hot and humid. Temperatures range from 24°C–28°C (75°F–82°F) year-round, slightly cooler in the Gambiers and Australs, with pleasantly cooling sea breezes. Heavy but brief showers fall between November and April. Surfers make the most of the changing winds by hitting the north and east coasts from November to April and the west and south shores the rest of the year.

Calendar of Events 

Not surprisingly, events in Tahiti revolve around the sea. In May the Tahiti Pearl Regatta annually sails between three Society Islands over five days, with a Tahitian feast each evening. In November traditional Polynesian six-man canoes race the 130km (81 miles) between three islands in the Hawaiki Nui Va’a. On dry land, the Moorea International Marathon is known as Tahiti’s ""Love Marathon"" as it always falls around St. Valentine’s Day in February. Tahitian crafts are celebrated in June and July’s Heiva Rima’i, a competitive jamboree of wood-working, cloth-printing and mother-of-pearl-carving. "
