Fiji has long been fodder for the covers of luxury travel brochures. Made up of more than 300 islands strewn through the cobalt waters of the South Pacific, it’s a playground for adventurers, romantics, and anyone longing for that tropical cocktail of sun-kissed beaches and jungle-clad hills. It’s also home to some of the most luxurious villas in the whole hemisphere – think overwater bungalows that rise above multicoloured coral reefs and sprawling estates tucked between umbrella palms and papaya trees.
The Mamanuca Islands are the epitome of tropical charm and a must-see for the most dedicated beach lovers out there. Dotting the ocean to the west of Fiji proper, they host some of the world’s most pristine sands and are the perfect spot for watersports buffs. Surfers can hit world-renowned waves at Cloudbreak, snorkellers can meet vibrant angelfish and puffers in the reefs around Navini Island, and those seeking relaxation can lounge on the soft, white sands of Malolo Island.
For cultural enjoyment, head to Suva, the capital of Fiji. The city offers a unique blend of urban vibes and rich cultural heritage. As the country’s political and economic hub, Suva boasts trendy cafes and bustling nightlife spots, along with the enthralling Suva Municipal Market – a bazaar rich in stacked papayas, rambutans, and dragon fruit. More historically-minded visitors can explore the Fiji Museum, a treasure trove of artefacts that tells the fascinating story of the nation’s past and its daring seafaring people.
Stretching along the southern shores of Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island, the Coral Coast is renowned for its spectacular coral reefs – hence the name! It’s a haven for snorkellers and divers looking to catch a glimpse of the area’s rich marine biodiversity. Along that same stretch is the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park, a land of shifting sand hills that look more Arabian than Polynesian.
The Yasawa Islands are ideal if you’re seeking an authentic and remote Fijian experience. Volcanic by nature, they lurch almost vertically from the Pacific Ocean in a symphony of craggy mountaintops and lush grass meadows. Below, the beaches and coves hide traditional Fijian fishing villages.
Then there’s the fabled Garden Island of Taveuni, perfect for an eco retreat. Boasting lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls, and abundant wildlife, it encompasses 434 square kilometres of sublime natural landscapes. The Bouma National Heritage Park is the crown jewel there, providing hiking trails that lead to the stunning Tavoro Waterfalls. Taveuni is also a gateway to the renowned Rainbow Reef, a world-class dive site teeming with brain sponges and schools of exotic fish.
