Considering that Easter Island is just that – an island, and a very small one, and it is surrounded by the vast Pacific Ocean, its climate is totally dominated by the ocean, and where it is located in terms of its place on the line of longitude – it is just south of the line of Capricorn. Considering the amount of water around the Island the air is humid.

Effectively it enjoys a sub-tropical climate. In the summer period between November through to March the days can be very hot and humid, and in the winter months it enjoys mild temperatures. Average daily temperature between December to March is 24C and between April through to November around 19C. However, those are average temperatures and during the summer months many days have a much higher temperature and this, combined with the humidity, makes it feel hotter than it actually is.

Dominated entirely by the surrounding Pacific Ocean, it is often windy and rainy, sometimes with quick summertime, rain showers.
