Fiji

300 stunning islands with their tropical beaches and seemingly endless ocean views make up the dreamy destination of Fiji.

Fiji is most known for having beaches that look like they come straight out of a fantasy and some of the happiest people in the entire South Pacific. It is one of the most family-friendly destinations in the world, but it's equally well-suited for an adults-only getaway. Pure relaxation is easy to achieve for any and all travellers, stretching from the picture-perfect coastlines of the Yasawa Islands to the lavish pools at home at each resort. And to balance out the complete zen-like state that washes over travellers, a healthy mix of adventure in Pacific Harbour, a slide down the natural Waitavala Water Slide in Taveuni, or even a rowdy day at sea on Cloud 9 can provide another type of reinvigoration.

Beautiful Beaches

Fiji is famous for its incredible palm-lined beaches, lagoons, caves and coral reefs. And for good reason. The Coral Coast is home to resorts with beachfront bures and the chance to dining in the sand. Off the coast of the Mamanuca Islands is where travellers will find some of the world's best surf breaks.

Spas and Wellness Centres

Relaxation is an essential part of holidaying in Fiji. In fact, FIji offers some of the best luxury resorts and day spas. Indulge in daily massages and treatments or find zen in nature with Fiji’s mud pools and hot springs.

Cultural Exploration

Spend a day in the life of Fijian villagers by visiting their beautiful local communities. In the Coral Coast, opportunities to get a taste of the culture abound. Join Fijians for an authentic kava ceremony in the Pacific Harbour. Or explore the local markets of Sigatoka to shop for local produce and Fiji-made handicrafts.

Heart-Racing Experiences

If you think Fiji is all sunshine, palm trees, and cocktails…well, you’re right. But satisfying a craving for an adrenaline boost is easy to achieve. Pacific Harbour, only 3 hours from Nadi, is the adventure capital where you can jump at the chance to go rafting, kayaking, off-road driving or quad biking, and ziplining.
