Attractions:

With more than 300 islands, the Republic of Fiji, or the “Pearl of the Pacific,” earns its nickname with pristine beaches, clear turquoise waters, dynamic underwater coral and acres of tropical jungle. Visitors can explore a number of attractions during their stay, and these showcase the area’s natural beauty, rich history and sense of adventure. Whether you are hoping to relax, learn or seek a thrill, you will find no shortage of things to do in Fiji. The permanent six-metre wave 'Cloudbreak' off the coast of Tavarua is described by surf champion Kelly Slater as one of the most perfect waves he’s ever surfed. The Yasawa and Turtle Islands are cited as having some of the best beaches in the region .

Things To Do:

Sigatoka Sand Dunes and Sigatoka River

Some of Fiji’s best sights include Sigatoka Sand Dunes and “Salad Bowl Cave”. Head into Sigatoka Valley and cross the river on a traditional bamboo bilibili raft to see the Naihehe cave system, formerly inhabited by cannibals. Be prepared to crawl through sections of the dark caves and wade through knee-deep water. At the mouth of the Sigatoka River, the longest river on the island of Viti Levu, discover the Sigatoka Sand Dunes which were once used as a burial ground.

Mamanuca Islands

Fiji’s beautiful Mamanuca group comprises more than 30 small islands near Nadi. Known for their pristine natural beauty, the Mamanucas offer the perfect backdrop for your holiday snapshots and some spectacular snorkel and dive sites, with stunning sights just below the surface. Take a day cruise to a coral atoll – Beachcomber Island or Treasure Island – or a small volcanic island, stopping for a picnic of Fiji’s famous fresh produce on a white, sandy beach.

Feed sea turtles and wander in dappled sunlight across bridges beneath towering native jungle dwellers, including Dawa, Ivi, Vutu and Vesi trees.

Bouma National Park

Boumea National Park, located on the island of Taveuni in the north, covers 150 square kilometres of natural forest. The island’s volcanic peaks, cliffs and ridges provide several challenging walks, including Lavena Coastal Walk and Bouma Falls Trail leading to Tavoro Falls. Experienced walkers will enjoy the Vidawa Rainforest Trail.
