WHAT ARE THE WEATHER CONDITIONS DURING THE YEAR?

  • Phu Quoc is blessed with relatively constant average daytime temperature of 28 Celsius, making the island an ideal year-round tourist destination. The island has two distinct seasons: wet and dry.

  • The dry season is between November to May, with January and February being the driest months of the year and May having higher humidity before the start of the rainy season. The dry season is the best time to visit with lots of sunshine, blue skies and good visibility for snorkelling and diving. The dry season corresponds with the islands high season, so booking in advance is recommended.

  • The wet season is between June to October with a mix of afternoon or overnight showers and occasional periods of 3 or 4 days of heavy rains. The waters at Peppercorn Beach remain fairly calm even during the wet season though snorkelling visibility is impacted slightly by the rainy season. However, the island still has plenty of sunshine and day time temperatures are still a comfortable 28 degrees. The islands forests and greenery comes to life during the wet season and waterfalls are best visited during this time of year. Accommodation prices are also generally lower in the wet season, making it a great time to visit the island.
