“I fell in love with Fiji; the people are so friendly and the island is absolutely beautiful. The beaches on the outer islands are particularly stunning with crystal clear, blue waters and white sandy beaches. Personally, I would recommend a few nights on the main land and then spend the remainder on one of the outer island resorts depending on the amount of time you have.”

“A great way to see Fiji is by cruise which is what I did. You get to see so many different places, including local church visits which blew me away, the gospel singing and so much joy in such a little area is a feeling I’ll never forget. What’s more, you get to snorkel in some of the clearest waters I’ve ever visited.”

“For an amazing escape and the most unique way to see a lot of what Fiji has to offer, take a 7 night Blue Lagoon cruise. I highly recommend the Fijian Princess; it only has 34 amazing rooms, so it feels like your embarking on your own personal adventure.”

“I spent my two weeks in Fiji island hopping with a ‘Bula Pass’, climbing trees to collect coconuts and sipping cocktails while listening to the ocean and enjoying some of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen.”

“If you love white sands and beautiful beaches, head off the mainland to some of the beautiful Mamanuca islands, whereas, if you would like to experience the authentic parts of Fiji, I would recommend spending some time on the mainland and visiting the local villages. You can really immerse yourself in the culture and make friends for life with the kind hearted Fijians.”

“One thing not to leave Fiji without doing is the Sawa-I-Lau Caves Trip in the very heart of the Yasawa Islands. The boat trip up to the caves is worth doing because of its fabulous scenery. But then there’s also the magical experience of the caves themselves. You’ll be greeted by Fijian locals, who will guide you down some steps and into the magical caves. It’s a truly unique experience…”

“The best place to head be are the beautiful islands, such as the Mamanuca islands, as you really get a sense of being on your own desert island, surrounded by crystal clear waters. Spend your day relaxing in a hammock, drinking from a freshly picked coconut overlooking the stunning ocean. If you get a chance, try what the locals call ‘kava’ which has an acquired taste but is an experience in itself, it’s very much part of the Fijian culture.”

“When I think of Fiji I think paradise! Relaxation is big in Fiji but if you’re in the mood, there are many incredible activities in the islands – white water rafting, trekking in the rainforest, amazing snorkeling and diving, local villages to visit and even swimming with the manta rays (seasonal). Fiji offers a diverse cultural experience with the Fijian and Indo Fijian people, their food, their outlook and lifestyles.”

“One of the most stunning regions I visited was The Yasawa Islands group, why not experience a few nights on a cruise you will be sure to enjoy some great diving and snorkeling, swimming in caves, beach activities, coral viewing from a glass bottom boat or just lazing on the beach. Entertainment is in brilliant, true, Fijian style, so get into the theme and don you’re best Sulu (Sarong) and Bula shirt for this special night and for the ladies don’t forget to wear a flower in your hair.”

“Fiji is an absolute delight to explore. The people are absolutely amazing and are always excited to involve you in a Cava ceremony! We enjoyed visiting a local village and school to see how the different cultures learn. We helped make arts and crafts, including bags and hats from plant leaves. One of my favourite adventures was in the rainforest where we went rafting through rivers, hiking up mountains and enjoying astounding views, then sailing down the mountains in floats through the rapids.”

Morgan Mangham, Store Manager at Kuoni Lakeside

“Nadi and Suva are fantastic towns to explore. A ‘must do’ is visiting the small islands from Nadi, you can even stay at some of these overnight for a cast away experience! Amazing diving and snorkelling is available from these beautiful places. There really is something for everyone here!”
