The climate of Tuamotus Archipelago (French Polynesia)
The Tuamotus Archipelago is a group of volcanic islands in French
Polynesia. The archipelago consists of 78 small volcanic islands, some
of which are inhabited. The archipelago is divided into smaller
groups: Actéon group, Îles Deux Groupes, Îles du Désappointement, Îles
du Duc de Gloucester, Îles du Roi Georges, Îles Palliser and Îles
Raevsk. Besides these groups there are 33 islands too remote to group.
Most of the islands can be visited by tourists. The Tuamotus
Archipelago has a tropical rainforest climate with high precipitation
figures all year round. Average daily temperatures are around 30
degrees Celsius. In combination with high temperatures this causes
humidity figures to be high as well. However, an ever blowing sea wind
offers some cooling. From December till May there is a risk of
tropical storms and hurricanes.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
information for each month of the year:
