With a whopping 333 islands scattered through the azure waters of the South Pacific, Fiji is a spectacular island holiday destination. Famous for its gorgeous beaches, relaxed tropical atmosphere and beautiful warm climate (the temperatures are always between 26 and 31 degrees), Fiji is perfect for every age, whether you’re a young couple seeking romance, a family looking for fun and adventure, or empty nesters due for a leisurely escape. Natural beauty abounds, from the clear blue waters to the white sand beaches and the lush green rainforests, and the locals are some of the warmest and friendliest people on the planet. The water here is the ultimate paradise, the place to swim, surf, kayak and explore the soft corals beneath the surface on a dive or snorkel.
The main island of Fiji is Vitu Levu, and you can enjoy a holiday to Fiji without even leaving this diverse hub. Explore beautiful waterfalls, interesting archaeological sites and the native flora and fauna in the national parks, wander through the unique Sigatoka Sand Dunes, or hike to the summit of Mt Batilamu. For more cultural encounters, discover the local markets and traditional ceremonies in the villages and town centres dotted across the island. Or, if it’s nice hotels, activities, sports, restaurants and shopping that you’re after, indulge in the resort life of Denarau Island – which is actually part of Vitu Levu.
To get out and witness the rest of Fiji, it’s easy to get around the islands by air and boat. The Mamanuca Group of islands is a popular slice of heaven as they’re located very close to Nadi. Here you’ll find plenty of resorts and facilities, as well as beautiful lagoons. Vanua Levu is also great – the second biggest island in Fiji but with less hype than Vitu Levu. For something much less touristy though, try Yasawa Island or Taveuni, which is nicknamed the Garden Island for its eco treasures. If you’re really adventurous, get back to the Fijian roots away from any sign of hotels and restaurants, with a true traditional experience on the Lau Group islands or Kadavu.
