Endless vistas, sparkling beaches, cloudless skies, warm welcomes…it’s the very definition of exotic!
Know Your Destination
A stunning archipelago with over 300 islands, all surrounded by dreamy beaches, vibrant coral reefs, shimmering sapphire waters, and views to an infinite horizon, Fiji is, hands down, simply one of the most exotic places in the world, a sensory journey where coconut-scented trails lead you to the gentle lapping of the waves and awaken you to otherworldly sights and sounds. It’s a life-defining vacation destination.
Expect to be entranced by some of the world’s best accommodations, from five-star resorts, to eco-resorts, to hidden finds, all accentuated by authentic smiles, plus a provocative landscape that lures both adventure-seekers and those looking for the utmost quietude.
Get In & Get Going
All visitors to Fiji must have a passport valid for 6 months beyond their visit, plus an onward or return airline ticket; visitor permits, good for stays of up to 4 months, are issued upon arrival.
You’ll find it easy to get around, shop, enjoy cultural experiences, and more. English is spoken, and public transportation is easy to navigate in Viti Levu, with air-conditioned buses, taxi service, and rental car availability.
Explore the beautiful Mamanuca Islands aboard the classic schooner Seaspray, including traditional kava ceremony at the Fijian island village on Yanuya
Finding Nemo’s Twin
Meet the superstar known as Nemo – or at least one of the anemore fish or “clownfish” on which he’s based – when you snorkel in the florid reefs off Taveuni.
Hit the Surf
Catch a wave, or more, off the southernmost Mamanucas around Tavarua and Namotu, as well as off the Coral Coast near Pacific Harbour.
The Only Way to Fly
Maximize your “island time” by arriving at your resort via seaplane or helicopter transfer, available from multiple operators.
Live to Dive
There’s too many great dive spots to list, so flip a coin or just explore…Rakiraki, on the north coast of Viti Luvi, where you’ll find chromatic pristine reefs and an abundance of fish.
Cave to Your Desires
The Naihehe Cave seems even eerier when you realize that it’s a fortress of one of Fiji’s last cannibal tribes, and contains a ritual platform and cannibal “oven.”
Spa in Paradise
There may be nothing more Fijian than indulging at the spa at your resort, which range from open-air bures, to cabanas overlooking the lagoon, to plunge pools with waterfalls, and beyond.
Parasailing, jet-skiing, game-fishing, surfing, diving, swimming, water-skiing, kayaking, sailing…There’s no end to the water sports fun you can enjoy in Fiji!
