About Fiji

Fiji’s close proximity to New Zealand makes it an ideal stopover location either on the way to or the way back from a holiday in New Zealand. The pristine beaches and crystal clear, tropical waters make it a hard place to resist.

Viti Levu

As the largest of the islands in the Archipelago, Vitu Levu is characterised by its lush and mountainous interior and the superb sandy beaches surrounding it. The gateway town of Nadi is a great base to explore this wonderful island, with great opportunities for walking trips, island cruises, and in the town there are plenty of shops, cafés and restaurants for visitors to enjoy.

Around the Island’s south west corner, the rugged Coral Coast has fine beaches and sheltered bays all protected by an offshore reef. Just 90 minutes from the airport, the Coral Coast is home to some of the islands best beachfront resorts, they have plenty of entertainment and nightlife and the swimming and snorkelling here are excellent.

Mamanuca Islands

The stunning Mamanuca Islands are just a short ferry ride from Nadi and are extremely popular with tourists. This is primarily due to their exceptional natural beauty, but there is also plenty to see and do here. Due to the islands beautiful landscape, they have been the location for several films over the years including the famous “Castaway” featuring Tom Hanks in 2000. The 20 stunning islands are set in a tranquil lagoon, surrounded by the Malolo Coral Reef, meaning that the snorkelling and diving in the area is some of the best in the South Pacific.

Exploring Further

Fiji’s other 300+ islands can be accessed on day trips or extended small-ship cruises, which is, for many, the perfect way to discover Fiji. With picture postcard scenery and pristine beaches washed by the surrounding lagoon, the Yasawa Islands are another of Fiji’s most popular destinations. Here, the tradition of the Polynesian way of life continues, with extended families living together in traditional villages.
