If you’ve dreamt of a tropical paradise then you’ve dreamt of Fiji. Colourful coral, white, sandy beaches and azure water inviting you to take a dip. But with its 333 islands, there is more to see and do than just lazing in a hammock swung between two palm trees (although this is definitely something you should do!) There is plenty of action to be had if you want to seek it out.
Fiji’s largest island (and where most international flights land) is Vitu Levu. Port Denerau on the West is a great place to over-night before heading to the islands. On the South West is the Coral Coast, with plenty of resorts to choose from, as well as easy access to activities like White Water rafting, a wild life park – Kula Eco Park, and visiting some hot mud springs at the Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool in Nadi. You can also Zip-line over the rain forest at Pacific Harbour or take a walking tour in the capital of Suva.
For those looking for an Island escape, the palm-fringed beaches of the Mamamanuca Islands are waiting for you. Here you’ll also find some of the world’s best surf breaks and great scuba diving in the crystal clear waters.
Further afield, more intrepid travelers will enjoy some of the off the beaten track islands such as Vanua Levu, Tavenui Island and the Yasawa Islands. Here in these less touristy parts, you’ll find places where the rainforest meets the ocean, great wildlife spotting and stunning waterfalls exploding into swimming holes. You can also trek a dormant volcano, go horse-riding or mix with the locals at the Snake Temple.
Another way to see a more remote side of Fiji is to take a 3,4 or 7 day cruise around the archipelago. You’ll visit a different island every morning and afternoon, Go ashore, swim in a lagoon, sun-bathe or experience a Kava ceremony in a traditional village. You can do as much or as little as you like.
