Satisfy your sense of adventure as you charge down thundering rivers in an inflatable raft or along rugged terrain in an off road buggy; enjoy panoramic views as you parasail over the calm South Pacific Ocean, or turn up the thrill factor and take a bird’s eye view of the islands as you hurl yourself out of a plane and into an adrenalin charged free-fall. Take a gentle snorkel from shore to explore the vibrant coral reefs, as scuba divers below enjoy the discovery of cryptic reef dwellers. All while the game fishers remain topside searching for an elusive marlin. Carve your surfboard into iconic waves or gently paddle along our beautiful coastline in a canoe built for two. Play a round of golf on one of Fiji’s challenging championship courses or a take gentle jaunt on horseback at sunset.
Fiji’s diverse coastline is simply spectacular, offering long sandy beaches to sheer volcanic cliffs and everything in between. Flanked by dramatic mountain ranges and the alluring waters of the South Pacific Ocean, Fiji’s coastline is a diverse area of natural beauty with lush tropical mangrove forests, safe swimming beaches and volcanic rocky outcrops linking the two. In some areas, cliff side waterfalls discharge thundering volumes of cool fresh rainwater that flows down from untouched mountain ranges into the sea below, whilst in others, you’ll find shallow streams perfect for a little paddler’s feet trickling through sandy beachside channels. Build sandcastles, race hermit crabs along the beach, explore rock pools and collect sand dollars with the kids or simply watch the tide roll in from the comfort of a beachside hammock.
The variety of picturesque scenes – tranquil bays, bustling harbours, long peninsulas and crashing reef breaks – make Fiji’s coastline an attraction in itself. Many boat operators offer cruises so that you may enjoy the coastline from an entirely different perspective. From stunning bays of shimmering emerald water with jet black volcanic rock formations jutting up from the ocean floor, to deserted sandy havens gently lapped by calm turquoise waves. Fiji’s vibrant coral reefs are often only a short snorkel from shore making the beaches of Fiji’s 333 islands the palm-fringed gateway to an oasis of bliss. Enjoy Fiji’s magnificent coastline, one beach at a time.
Taking a cruise is a great way to see more of Fiji. Part of what makes Fiji unique is its many groups of islands, each with its own culture, identity and attractions, and cruising is one of the best ways to get around them. If you want to stay reasonably close to the mainland Viti Levu, the Mamanucas have a huge range of world-class resorts and activities to keep you going. Cruising these islands and ‘resort hopping’ is ideal for sociable types who love keeping busy and interacting with others. If a more laidback experience is what you’re after, the nearby Yasawas are less developed but just as beautiful, giving you the opportunity to learn about Fijian culture and lifestyle with villages dotted throughout the group. The Lau group of islands in Fiji’s far east offer a serenely untouched vista of exotic bays and safe harbours where locals live as they did before Fiji was discovered by Europeans. You’ll need special permission to visit this group, but if you do, you’ll be treated to a unique view of Fijian culture. Fiji’s second-largest island, Vanua Levu, is a popular cruising destination, containing the small community of Savusavu and a range of resorts in relatively close proximity.
For a taste of what life was like in Fiji’s colonial days, cruise around Ovalau Island and visit Levuka, the country’s first capital. Nearby, the islands of Gau, Batiki and Nairai are virtually untouched, consisting mainly of villages. To experience Fiji’s truly pristine environment, cruising through Kadavu is a must. The fourth-largest island in the group, Kadavu is remarkably untouched, containing a mixture of volcanic peaks and magnificent rainforests which sweep down to the water’s edge. If that doesn’t quite give you your fill of eco-goodness, continue on through Taveuni, the Garden Island of Fiji, where everything is a brilliant, vibrant green. The island has fabulous waterfalls in national parks, lush rainforests filled with birdlife and beautiful mountain treks.
The inhabitants of modern Fiji are of indigenous Fijian background, as well as of Indian, Chinese and European ancestry. Indigenous culture has shaped the nation and is an active and living part of everyday life for the majority of the happy folk that live here. Our unique blend of cultures can be seen throughout Fiji, and in virtually every aspect of your stay – from the food, festivals, rituals and the arts.
Various crafts give us a unique identity that along with traditional etiquette and local architecture tells a story of our culture and its evolution over time. Historical artefacts and documents that depict this story are preserved and displayed within museums and protected as National Heritage Sites. One such site is the first colonial capital of Fiji, Levuka. The town symbolises a period of influence on the country’s development, deemed so significant to the region, this quaint little port town and her buildings were proudly protected under UNESCO World Heritage listing in 2013. Many more of Fiji’s cultural structures have withstood the test of time to remain an integral symbol of important moments in Fiji’s history. Kava drinking for example, synonymous with life in the South Pacific, is still very much a part of life in Fiji. It is likely that you will be invited to join a kava ceremony during your stay. After the formalities, this is a wonderful way to make new friends and learn a little more about their country. Dig a little deeper and see what you can discover!
Dubbed the “Soft Coral Capital of the World”, Fiji’s flamboyant coral reefs boast a diversity of habitat and marine life that even dive greats call paradise. The maze of brilliant coral reefs surrounding our 333 islands include the ‘Great Sea Reef’ and the ‘Great Astrolabe Reef’; some of the longest coral reefs in the world. World-class dive sites and an abundance of PADI or SSI affiliated dive operators are scattered throughout Fiji’s main dive regions. Over 1000 species of fish and several hundred types of corals and sponges blooming with flower-like beauty will have you aching to discover the wondrous, alien world beneath the waves. Whether you crave the adrenalin of a heart-pumping shark dive, are keen to explore infamous sites like the ‘Great White Wall’, or log your next dive adventure on a liveaboard, we promise that diving in Fiji is well-worth the plane ticket.
For an unforgettable family holiday filled with sunshine, wonder and adventure, Fiji is the ultimate destination. No matter where you are in the country, there’s so much to see and do. With incredible wildlife, stunning beaches and a huge range of adventure activities, Fiji is really one big playground you and your kids will adore. Discover Fiji’s unique marine life by snorkelling or scuba diving in some of the many excellent dive spots.Jet skiing and kayaking are a great way to experience some on-water adventure, and Fiji’s long, sandy white beaches are great for kids to run, swim and build sand castles to their hearts’ content. If soaking up nature is your idea of a great family holiday, you’re in luck. From brilliant bird life to breath-taking waterfalls and lush forests, there are endless opportunities to immerse yourself and your family in one of the world’s most beautiful natural environments. Finding family-friendly accommodation in Fiji isn’t hard, and many resorts offer child care facilities. On top of that, Fiji’s relatively small size means getting around is easy, so you can squeeze more activities into each day.
Many areas of natural significance have been protected and are open for visiting nature lovers to enjoy – from mountain ranges to river gorges, mangrove forests and coral reefs. Intact forests stretch from mountainous peaks down to the coastline of some islands. Take a hike deep into these thick natural rainforests treating your lungs to some of the freshest air you will ever likely breathe. Discover waterfalls pouring into cool crisp pools you can swim in as you marvel at the beauty of the surrounding native plants and wildlife. Fiji’s forests are home to a wide array of unique birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, insects and other invertebrates.
Alternatively, you can take a gentle stroll through well-kept botanical gardens to learn more about the various medicinal and practical uses of much of Fiji’s flora. You can also get up close and personal with some endangered species. Migrating humpback whales jump and splash through Fiji waters from June through to October, five of the world’s seven sea turtles play in Fiji’s waters and large resident pods of spinner dolphins call Fiji home. You can marvel at their impressive aerial displays during a visit to Moon Reef. Rare endemic species such as the Fiji crested iguana and the colourful Kadavu parrot can be seen at educational centres and the national wildlife park. If you would like to learn more about the underwater world, that’s easy too! Fiji has established well over 200 locally managed marine parks, which means that you can enjoy guided snorkels or scuba dives through beautifully healthy and well managed areas of coral reef during your holiday. Naturally, the islands of Fiji’s are impressive.
