The climate of Raiatea (French Polynesia)
Raiatea is the second largest island of the Society Islands. This also makes Raiatea one of the largest islands in French Polynesia. Together with the island of Tahaa Raiatea forms a large atoll. The capital of the island is Uturoa. Uturoa has an important regional function because it is one of the few cities with a high school. Because of volcanic eruptions in the past several beaches are black. Raiatea has a tropical rainforest climate with high precipitation figures all year round. Most of the precipitation falls during the local summer; during this period there is also a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. During this period humidity figures are high as well. The average day time temperature is around 30 degrees Celsius.
