Cook Islands – Best time to go

Best time to visit Cook Islands

The Cook Islands are a year-round destination weather wise. As one of the most southern nations of the South Pacific, the Cooks enjoy pleasant, steady temperatures and humidity levels. However, evenings are cool so pack a few heavier layers.

High season: winter (May to Oct)

Dry season means sunny days and pleasant temperatures in the mid 20s.
The busiest season is from late June and through August as Australians and New Zealanders escape their own winter for more tropical climes.

Shoulder season: autumn and spring (Apr to May and Oct to Nov)

Low rainfall, low humidity and milder temperatures.
The shoulder months provide an ideal combination of sunshine and warmth, outside of peak travel times.

Low season: summer (Nov to Apr)

Wet season in the Cooks is characterised by cloudy days, rain showers and slightly higher humidity.
Expect temperatures in their high 20s and low 30s.
