You’ll feel the need to pinch yourself as you discover the sweeping sandy bays framed by sparkling blue water and lazily swaying palm trees of the South Pacific. This is not a dream – this is Fiji!
The country is an archipelago made up of over 300 picture-perfect islands. And the interiors are just as stunning as the coastline, with lush jungles, waterfalls, and tropical gardens. Fiji is the perfect destination for those who want a balance of activity and relaxation when it comes to their island holiday. Your beach day can simply be reading and sun-baking, or you can jump in the water for some sea kayaking or snorkeling. The next day you can explore the town’s markets, or go for a jungle hike.
Visit the rugged and untouched Mamanuka Islands either on a day trip or a cruise, including Monuriki where ‘Castaway’ was filmed. Boumi National Park is a must – it covers 80% of the island of Taveuni, including rainforest to coastal forest and is home to some incredible waterfalls.
The people of Fiji are what make the nation a true paradise. Their friendly warmth and welcoming nature make you feel immediately at home here. Learn about the local cultures including the ever-incredible fire-walking tradition on Beqa Island, or sip kava with grass skirted warriors of the Nukubaluvu Village on Vanau Levu.
