Say Bula to Fiji!
on 11 Oct 2021
Long stretches of golden sand beaches, stunning sunsets, warm azure-blue waters, popular surf breaks and relaxed and friendly locals – Fiji really is paradise on earth. Made up of more than 300 islands, this archipelago sits in the middle of the South Pacific ocean with people well-known for their warmth and hospitality. Nothing is done in a hurry here with everything running on Fiji time, so do yourself a favour and leave the watch at home!
As popular with couples as it is families and backpackers, in Fiji you can while away the hours in a hammock - swinging in the warm sea breeze, splash about in the pool with the kids or sip cocktails from the pool bar. Pop the little ones in the Kids Club for the day and enjoy a round of golf or a pampering day of relaxation at the day spa. Take a day trip out to one of the islands or visit a village and meet some locals. You can be assured, whatever you decide to do, you’ll return from a holiday in Fiji rested and recharged.
Fiji’s main city is Nadi – a place where you can explore the Garden of the Sleeping Giant with its gorgeous and colourful range of orchids and tropical plants. Shop in the vibrant Nadi markets; white-water raft down a river before swimming under a waterfall; cover yourself in mud at the Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool or see the largest Hindu Temple in the South Pacific. Use one of the many stunning resorts around Nadi as a base to escape for a day or two before heading out to the islands or along the Coral Coast.
Take an interesting guided tour through the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park and learn about this unique eco-system, made up of miles and miles of undulating sand dunes with some reaching as high as 60 metres. Take a jetboat ride up the Sigatoka River before visiting a local village, where you can learn about the unique culture and customs of the Fijian people and sample some kava in a traditional ceremony.
The mainland's coastline is scattered with stunning resorts, where you can recharge and relax on beautiful beaches, looking out over the stunning scenery of the South Pacific. Explore caves, do a jungle walk, take a helicopter ride over Fiji’s stunning islands or spend the day sailing around them, through crystal-clear waters teeming with colourful coral and fish all waiting to be explored. Visit nearby Suva, Fiji’s capital, where you can visit the Fiji Museum.
Without a doubt, the highlight of Fiji is her stunning islands. They are close enough that you don’t have to restrict yourself to one tropical paradise – you can easily island-hop between a few. Visit the Mamanuca Islands with palm-fringed shores, spectacular live coral reefs, luxurious resorts, world-class surfing and the opportunity to dive with turtles, sharks and dolphins. Visit the lesser-known island of Vanua Levu, the eco-tourist’s fantasy island of Taveuni or the group of islands popular with backpackers and those seeking more seclusion, the Yasawa Islands.
