French Polynesia Weather and Resorts in December
If you’re looking to visit French Polynesia, it’s worth knowing that December is in the middle of the rainy season.
Generally, it’s still warm with some sun, but it comes with the risk of random downpours. Saying that, temperatures are higher than some other months of the year. Also, as it’s out of peak season, you’ll find much quieter beaches and less busy resorts than if you went in the June or July months.
The weather can be quite bad in December, as it’s in the heart of the yearly rainy season. That being said, temperatures are still warm, so when the rain stops it’s ideal for partaking in outdoor activities and enjoy relaxing beach days. You’ll definitely want to have some alternative plans on hand in case the weather turns.
