There is always plenty to do on your next Fiji holiday!
Fiji is famous for the variety of activities available including snorkeling, diving, swimming, fishing, surfing… and so much more.
These include snorkeling over shallow reefs close to shore, diving, which offers a full range of a underwater experience, riding in a jet boat, trekking in the tropical rainforests, swimming in the crystal clear waters of a rushing river, or can even visit a sacred cave? How about a full day or half day shopping tour of Suva, or a special week-long excursion around the major island where you can pilot a raft through raging rapids, sail through the magnificence of the Yasawa Islands or safari into the highlands to see rugged peaks and remote villages… we have it all.

Located south of Viti levu and west of Beqa lagoon, Vatulele is a 25 minute light aircraft flight from Nadi international airport. This idyllic low-lying island is 13km long, and covered with palm and rainforest. A barrier reef forms a lagoon on the eastern and northern ends, and there is good fishing and diving. There are four villages that subsist largely on farming and fishing, and the island is a major producer of traditional masi, or tapa cloth. Vatulele is famous for its archaeological sites, which include ancient rock paintings of faces and stenciled hands, and its limestone caves and pools, which are home to the bright red prawns held sacred by the islanders. Vatulele’s sole accommodation is an exclusive resort – one of Fiji’s best – Vatulele Island Resort, which offers split-level villas, each with their own stretch of sandy beach and turquoise lagoon. Activities on the island include fishing, diving, snorkeling, cave visits, bush walks and kayaking. The resort charters a seaplane from Nadi for guests.
Located roughly 100km/62miles south of Viti Levu, Kadavu is Fiji’s fourth largest island. However, this irregularly shaped island has few roads. You arrive at Vunisea airfield and from there virtually all transportation is by boat. The island is great for nature lovers and those wishing to pursue more adventure (diving, surfing and kayaking) and a look at traditional Fijian lifestyle and culture. The Great Astrolabe Reef, one of the largest continuous reefs in the world, wraps from the northeast to southern side of the island. Having maintained its strong cultural values the general population leads fairly subsistent lifestyles in sleepy coastal villages dwarfed by mountainous jungles and waterfalls plummeting from the hilltops. The islands deeply indented bays, fringed by coral reefs and mangrove forest provide habitat to a host of birds including the endemic Kadavu musk parrot. Forest openings reveal lizards basking on rocks, and butterflies spiraling skyward in a lazy dance.
This group of islands is located just off the western shore of Viti Levu in a lagoon formed between the Great Sea Reef and the mainland. Set among deep blue waters with fringing coral reefs of turquoise and pastel green, the Mamanucas and the islands of Nadi Bay offer tourists some of Fiji’s most outstanding retreats. Home to more than a dozen resorts, their close proximity to Nadi allows easy access by boat, planes and helicopter. These “vacation islands” are the ones that are most popular for day trips or longer stays. Each of the resorts has an abundance of beach and water related activities. The area is known for cruising and home to luxurious resorts.
The Yasawas are a chain of 20 sun-drenched islands stretching northeasterly from the top of the Mamanucas 90km/54miles out into Bligh Water. Their remote locale, white sand beaches, clear blue lagoons and varied terrains make the Yasawas one of the most attractive destinations in Fiji. But it is because of their remoteness that commercial development has never taken hold. There are three ways to enjoy the islands – one at the budget level or at the other extreme of two luxury properties. The other is to cruise the islands. The Yasawas have been used as filming locales for the “Blue Lagoon” movies and have served as the backdrop for an Australian TV series and major US produced motion picture.
