If sitting on a serene beach, surrounded by turquoise waters and swaying palm trees, is your idea of the perfect holiday, you are not alone. You are also fortunate to live within close proximity of some of the best such getaways available: the islands of the South Pacific. But not all islands are alike, and when it comes to the ultimate trip, Fiji earns the top spot for many travellers. This archipelago of more than 300 islands offers never-ending adventures. From the capital city of Suva to the rainforests of Vanua Levu, there are Fiji activities for all types of visitors. And if you just want to relax in the sun, you can do that as well. In fact, may we recommend a nice, breezy boat ride to really calm your mind? It’s all possible in this tropical wonderland.
Fiji is a world-renowned location for snorkelling and scuba diving, and the underwater delights are definitely a must-see. While you may not have heard the nickname “Soft Coral Capital of the World” yet, you will surely have heard it by the time you depart. Join one of the day trips to the Mamanuca Islands or to the secluded South Sea Island to marvel at the marine life. Above the waves, experience Fiji’s best surf breaks with a private lesson, paddle your way to paradise in a sea kayak, or leave the ocean altogether on a river rafting trip.
While the ocean and beaches are the stars of the show for some, others may be wondering what to do in Fiji back on land. Flying here is just as great as swimming, so consider a zip line adventure in the rainforests of Viti Levu, where you’ll soar above the treetops with stunning views. The Coral Coast also offers beautiful scenery, and it has culture to match. Barter your way through a local market in Sigatoka, then participate in a traditional kava ceremony. And if history is more your cup of tea, tours of Robinson Crusoe Island will fill that desire. At the end of the day, delectable feasts of fresh fish, local produce, and smoky barbecue chicken are your well-earned rewards.
