Fiji is located in the South Pacific and boasting over 300 coral fringed islands scattered across 20,000 square miles, this archipelago has an abundance of enticing experiences waiting for you.

Whether you choose to relax soaking up the South Pacific sun, drop anchor at one of Fiji’s islands, scuba dive at world famous dive locations, surf the reef breaks or bush walk through the abundantly lush tropical rainforests, there is a myriad of ways to enjoy Fiji.

With a destination so diverse and colorful, it seems only right that the people of Fiji are also so delightful, friendly, natural and fun. With a heritage influenced by the blend of Melanesian, Polynesian, Micronesian, Indian, Chinese and European cultures, the people of Fiji add that little extra bit of magic to an already alluring destination.

The best time to visit Fiji is between the months of March and November, when the weather is dry and the temperature ranges between 26°C/79°F to 30°C/86°F.

Unlike the seasonal weather in North America or Europe, Fiji’s has a mild tropical climate throughout the year with cool trade winds blowing from the east southeast keeping the temperatures nice and pleasant. The average day temperature in Fiji is a balmy 25°C/77°F, with temperatures much cooler in the mountainous regions of the bigger islands. The water temperature here tends to average from 25°C/77°F to 28°C82°F throughout the year, making snorkeling and diving in Fiji superb at any time.

It gets quite hot and humid from November to April, while from May to October, the weather in Fiji is much cooler and drier. The rainfall here is highly erratic and is usually characterized by brief but heavy downpours. Hurricanes or tropical cyclones are most likely to take place between November and April and usually originate from low pressure centers near the equator. However, it should be noted that strong destructive hurricanes rarely hit Fiji.

One thing to keep in mind about Fiji weather is that the climate here varies across the different islands. While the smaller isles tend to be dry and sunny most of the time, places like Suva on the other hand, tend to get quite wet and cloudy. The southwestern region of Viti Levu, the far north of Vanua Levu, the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands for example are blessed with copious amounts of sunshine.

Established Vacation Areas

DENARAU ISLAND
Located just 20 minutes south of Nadi International Airport, Denarau Island is the home to some of the best resorts in the South Pacific, superb residences, and facilities including a magnificent 18 hole championship golf course, an extensive array of water sports and leisure activities, 10 tennis courts and a marina. Denarau Marina is home to a selection of boutique shops, restaurants and cafes and is one of the major departure points for cruises and sea transfers to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands.

Denarau Golf and Racquet Club
With one of the finest golf courses in Fiji, the Denarau Golf and Racquet Club provides the island with a great activity for its many visitors. The 18 hole course and driving range is used by many of the visitors to the resorts and hotels on the island as well as locals. There is also a golf shop and a restaurant as well as excellent tennis courts.

THE CORAL COAST

OUTRIGGER ON THE LAGOON
One of the first areas in Fiji to be developed for tourism, the Coral Coast stretches 130 kilometers along the southern shores of Viti Levu, with easy access via the Queen’s Highway, which connects the main towns of Nadi and Suva. It boasts an array of large resorts and some smaller accommodation options. Many of these properties enjoy white sandy beaches and magnificent views of the waves breaking along the coral reef.

THE MAMANUCA ISLANDS

Likuliku Overwater Bungalows
The arc shaped Mamanuca (pronounced Ma-ma noo tha) island group, is a collection of 20 sand-fringed islands set among deep blue waters. Situated inside the Malolo Barrier Reef, this stunning group of isles, offers turquoise water and ideal conditions for boating, scuba diving, snorkeling and other water-based activities. The Mamanuca’s are the home of traditional Fijian villages and several of our popular island resorts.

THE YASAWA ISLANDS

Yasawa Islands
The Yasawa Group, made up of some 20 islands of volcanic origin, lies in a chain, north west of Viti Levu. Made famous by the film “The Blue Lagoon” the islands have white sandy beaches and crystalline waters, lush tropical rainforests and soaring volcano peaks. There is a wonderful selection of accommodation ranging from budget to unique five star resorts. The Yasawas are accessed daily from Port Denarau and Lautoka by fast catamarans and resort water taxis; or seaplane and helicopter from Nadi.

NORTHERN FIJI

Nukubati Private Island, Great Sea Reef
The northern islands of Vanua Levu (Big Island) and Taveuni are known for their leisurely pace of life. Vanua Levu is Fiji’s second largest island and the island’s main population centres are the towns of Labasa, in the north, and Savusavu, located at the foot of the peninsula. Savusavu has become a popular centre for tourists owing to its diving and yachting facilities.

The Great Sea Reef in Fiji's far north is the world's third largest barrier reef and home to a staggering array of life, from tiny nudibranchs to vast schools of fish to turtles, dolphins and manta rays.

Taveuni is Fiji’s third largest island and is world renowned for its amazing underwater habitant including the 31km long Rainbow Reef. Also known as the Garden Island, it’s covered in dense tropical bush and offers pristine forest walks, horse riding, historical sights and bird watching.

Fiji’s northern region is easily accessible by air or local ferry and also includes the smaller islands of Laucala, Qamea, Matagi, Namenalala, and Nukubati which offer a range of accommodation options.

KADAVU - FAR SOUTH

KADAVU - Great Astrolabe reef
Kadavu is the fourth largest island of Fiji and is made up of smaller islands like Ono an Galoa. Surrounded by hundreds of miles of fringing coral, the island also has 50 miles of the Great Astrolabe barrier reef forming sheltered lagoons and steep outer reef drop-offs.

Due to the lack of roads in Kadavu most resorts provide boat transfer for travelers, collecting them from the Vunisea airport around the coast to their paradise destination. Because of this isolation the resorts are perfect for tourists looking for an uncommercialized getaway, with a chance to experience the 'real Fiji' and some exciting adventure activities or just to relax.

THE SUN COAST

The Sun Coast region of the Fiji Islands is located on the northern shore of the main island of Viti Levu. The coast stretches approximately 40 kilometers from the town of Ba past Rakiraki to Nananu-i-Ra Island at the northern tip of Viti Levu. It takes about 2 1/2 hours to drive to Nananu-i-Ra from the Nadi International Airport passing sugar cane fields and green pastoral land, with spectacular views of coastline and ocean on one side, and majestic highland ranges of the inland on the other.

The scenic trip down the coast passes a number of places of interest, including the market towns of Ba and Rakiraki, and the Yaqara cattle-grazing region, with its impressive Nakauvudra Mountain Range backdrop. The region is also known for its water resources, and the famous ' Fiji Water ' is produced at a factory just a kilometre or so inland from the coastal highway near Yaqara. The northern coastline of Viti Levu has very few beaches so tourist resorts have been slow to develop along the Sunshine Coast. One of the most popular 'attractions' of the Sunshine Coast region, therefore, is the vacation island of Nananu-i-Ra which has beautiful white sand beaches plus good scuba diving, wind surfing, kayaking, sailing and fishing opportunities.

SUVA

SUVA CITY, VIEWED FROM SUVA HARBOUR
This capital city of Fiji has managed to retain the magic and character of the Colonial era and at the same time develop over the years offering visitors sites and attractions that will definitely make their stay memorable.

Majestic buildings from the Colonial era are now integrated with modern high-rises that give a unique mix to Suva. Located in the heart of Suva's botanical gardens, the Fiji Museum holds a remarkable historical and cultural collection which includes archaeological material dating back 3,700 years and cultural objects representing both Fiji's indigenous inhabitants and other communities that have settled in the island group over the past 100 years.

Changing of the Guard. Although not on the level of London’s Buckingham Palace, it is an inspiring sight as the soldiers resplendent in their white sulus and flame red jackets perform the traditional manoeuvres outside the gates of the Presidential Palace.
