Fiji Holiday Guide
Explore on Your Visit to Fiji
Most international flights to Fiji arrive at Nadi International Airport, which is on the largest island in the Fiji archipelago, Viti Levu. This island is also where you’ll find the largest concentration of hotels and tourist facilities, although many of Fijis 332 islands are well-equipped for visitors and island hopping by ferry is easy.
Hire a car, motorbike or bicycle in Nadi, or leave the driving up to someone else and travel around by taxi. Taxi prices in Fiji are very cheap, and you can save even more money by using a shared taxi, a van which will usually take between six and eight passengers. Public transport on unique open-topped buses is also an entertaining option.
Feast on Fiji’s Local Delicacies
Foodies are in for a treat when they book a holiday in Fiji. The cuisine on these islands is mouth-watering, with fresh seafood delivered straight from the ocean to the islands’ restaurants each day, with a banquet of local tropical fruits available for dessert. Coconut milk, sweet potatoes and taro feature heavily on Fijian menus, bringing that tropical flavour to each meal.
If you’re after a culinary experience totally unique to Fiji, attending a lovo feast is a must. At these traditional banquets, meat, fish and vegetables are barbecued on hot rocks beneath the ground until they’re cooked to perfection. Another regional delight is kava, a peppery drink that is often consumed during local celebrations and rituals.
A Treasure Trove of Nature in Fiji
If you love nature and the outdoors, a holiday in Fiji won’t disappoint. Famed for its stunning coral reefs, Fiji has some of the best diving and snorkelling anywhere in the world. You can get in the water to swim with turtles, dolphins, giant starfish and countless different varieties of brightly-coloured tropical fish in the reefs. Don’t have a diving certificate? No problem – get certified at one of Fiji’s world-class diving schools.
If you’re more at home with solid ground beneath your feet, go on a trek into the rainforests and volcanic mountain ranges of Viti Levu’s interior. A trip to Koroyanitu National Heritage Park is an experience every nature lover will remember for the rest of their lives. While you’re in the area, visit the nearby Garden of the Sleeping Giant, a stunning botanical garden bursting with rare and delicate orchids.
A Picture-Perfect Holiday in Fiji
Fiji is the holiday destination for the adventure of a lifetime. The beauty of its landscapes and waters must be seen to be believed, because, impossible though it sounds, Fiji is even more beautiful in real life than in its photos.
