Coral Coast

The Coral Coast is one of Fiji ‘s most popular holiday destinations – and for good reason. Located on the south-west coast of Viti Levu (Fiji’s main island), the Coral Coast stretches 130km and is accessible by road from either Nadi or Suva. Protected from onshore swells by a fringing reed, the coast is a mix of white sand and coral beaches.

Most Coral Coast beaches offer calm swimming conditions for families with young children while others are strictly for keen surfers when South Pacific conditions are right.

Filled with unspoilt beaches, lush forests and authentic Fijian villages, the Coral Coast offers a variety of cultural and outdoor activities. From a fisherman selling his day’s catch on the roadside, to bargaining with a local at the Sigatoka Market, true island life is here.

The Coral Coast is the perfect place to relax and rewind and offers a wide range of accommodation options to suit all budgets.

Pacific Harbour & Outer Islands

Pacific Harbour Fiji is a mini-metropolis located on the south coast of Viti Levu about 50km west of Suva. A long stretch of uninterrupted beach overlooks Beqa Passage with Beqa Island and Lagoon in the distance. Resorts on this coastline are not as prolific as the Coral Coast further west and that’s part of the attraction. Pacific Harbour is known as the adventure capital of Fiji, where you can experience mild excitements to full-blown adrenaline rushes through activities suitable for all ages. Fiji adventure holidays »

Pacific Harbour is a good base from which to explore the mountainous hinterland of Viti Levu with the capital Suva a leisurely day trip away. It’s easy enough to hire a car and drive yourself or you could arrange a car with your own driver from one of the resorts. Public buses also service the coastal Queens Road if you want to travel like the locals do.

Kokomo Private Island Resort in the Kadavu Islands

Kadavu Islands

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 the 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 spiralling skyward in a lazy dance.

Suva

Fiji’s administrative capital often undeservedly left off the tourism radar as travellers flock to dreamy out islands or coastal resort within moments of touching down at Nadi International Airport. However, those looking to do more than topping up their suntan or exploring Fiji’s natural treasures above and below the water would do well to explore Suva.

After Fiji was annexed from the United Kingdom in 1874 the capital was relocated from Fiji’s first modern town of Levuka on Ovalau Island to where Suva stands today. Back then Suva was little more than a waterfront village perched at the base of a mountain. Located on a peninsula that formed a natural harbour, access to the sea and ports beyond Suva’s link to the resort of the South Pacific. Eventually, much of the mangrove-lined coast was reclaimed as the village morphed into a city. The port of Suva plays a significant role in Suva’s position as the third-largest urban centre in the South Pacific behind New Zealand and Australia.

Mamanuca Islands

There is only one way to describe the Mamanuca Islands – postcard perfection! In the Mamanuca’s you’ll find crystal clear waters, palm-fringed beaches and swaying hammocks amongst coconut trees.  It’s a true paradise and so relaxing you will never want to leave.

This Mamanuca Island group 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 luxury 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 also very popular for cruises. Fiji cruise holidays »

The Yawawa Islands & Northern Fiji

The Yasawas are a chain of 20 sun-drenched islands stretching northeasterly from the top of the Mamanuca Island Group.

Stunning white-sand beaches, clear blue lagoons and varied terrains make the Yasawas one of the most attractive destinations in Fiji. Due to their remoteness, extensive commercial development has never taken hold in the region lending to its charm and attraction.

The islands are steeped in mystery and legend. The Yasawan people live as they have done for centuries, keeping the spirit of the islands alive with their traditional and simple lifestyle. The southern Yasawas are ruggedly magnificent, while the northern islands frame the famous Blue Lagoon where, as the name suggests, the water is the most inviting shades of blue you will ever see! This area has plenty of activities on offer and is also a great spot for blissful relaxation.

Cruising The Yaswawas is another popular option for discovering the amazing diversity and hidden wonders of this beautiful region.

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.

Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, Northern Fiji

Vanua Levu and Savusavu (Northern Fiji)

Located on Fiji’s northern island of Vanua Levu, Savusavu is considered one of Fiji’s best-kept secrets.  Affectionately termed “the hidden paradise of Fiji”, this area is known for its natural beauty, spectacular diving, local hospitality and sustainable, eco-friendly resorts.

Getting there couldn’t be easier. After landing at Nadi International Airport, a quick transfer across the tarmac to the Domestic Terminal and you’ll board your Fiji Link domestic flight direct to Savusavu.  From the air, you’ll bear witness to some of Fiji’s most spectacular scenery. Best of all, you can be settled in your resort within around two hours – it couldn’t be more seamless.

For those who like to add some unique touches to their holiday, consider flying instead to Labasa and driving overland to your Savusavu resort.  You’ll cut through the mountainous centre of Vanua Levu travelling amid virgin rainforest. Why not stop for a refreshing swim at a local rainforest to wash away the stresses of the 21st century as you settle into “Fiji Time”.
