Things to do in Fiji on a tailor-made itinerary range from swimming in pristine reefs to unwinding on breathtaking beaches, exploring rainforests and waterfalls to being embraced by the truly welcoming local culture.
Just a three- to four-hour flight from Australia or New Zealand, Fiji is perfect as a tropical stopover for a few days or as a holiday destination in its own right. With 333 islands, the country has so much to see and discover, and offers a fascinating blend of Melanesian and Indian cultures. The scenery is equally exotic, with jagged peaks draped in rainforest and spectacular waterfalls, leading down to a coastline of idyllic beaches and pristine coral reefs.
The Mamanuca Islands, to the west of the main island of Viti Levu, form an exquisitely beautiful string of tiny coral atolls and small volcanic islands, and make a perfect escape from civilisation. The Yasawa Islands, lying to the north-west, offer stunning beaches, bays and reefs. The northern islands to the north-east of Viti Levu are visited by relatively few but offer a taste of the ‘real’ Fiji.
