Fiji is absolutely amazing and offers an experience not to be missed with some of the most untouched, diverse and gorgeous islands on earth. Known for its palm-fringed beaches, cascading waterfalls, lush rainforests and a spectacular underwater world teeming with vibrant fish and colourful corals, Fiji will give you and your family an adventure of a lifetime.
Fiji belongs to the Oceania group in the South Pacific lying about two thirds from Hawaii to New Zealand. The archipelago consists of 332 islands, 110 of which are inhabited. The two main islands are Viti Levu hosting the capital city of Suva and Vanua Levu home to the greatest Somosomo Strait. Islands like the Lau group, Kadavu, Taveuni, Nairai, Beqa, Namena, Qamea and many others surrounding the Koro Sea make up the Fiji Archipelago.
While in Fiji you can be sure to find the experience that will make you happy. You can relax around the pool, have a romantic picnic on a perfect white sandy beach or crank up the adrenaline with an action filled holiday in the water or up on the hills. Being the world’s second largest coral reef, also known as the “Soft Coral Capital of the World”, Fiji waters are covered with bright coloured soft corals, swim-throughs and spectacular drop-offs that will keep your new underwater exploring experience busy for a few days.
Fiji is a year round destination with the most popular time to visit being during the peak season from July through to September when the weather is pleasant and slightly cooler compared to the rest of the year.
Fiji has two major seasons, the dry season from June to October and the wet season from November to April.
While in Fiji you will hear the word “Bula” all the time. “Bula” can mean many things depending on the occasion; it can be used as hello or welcome, cheers or good health. You can be guaranteed that “Bula” will be received or delivered with the biggest and warmest smile you will ever see. Fijians like to be happy and go the extra mile to make you happy too, which means you will always be entertained no matter what part of Fiji you are staying in. In the evenings most resorts invite local community groups and its chiefs to perform traditional dances and songs. On some nights you will experience Fiji’s traditional ceremony drink called “Kava”. The drink is made from the pounded roots of a local pepper plant mixed with water and drank in a communal coconut shell in a ceremony where everybody is sat on the floor around the “tanoa bowl”. The Fire Walking ceremony, an ancient Fijian ritual is also performed for visitors. During the performance the fire walkers walk in a single line across a pit of red-hot stones a few meters in length and amazingly their feet are unscathed after two weeks of preparation.
