If you dream of dazzling white beaches and palm trees swaying in the wind, then Fiji is the place for you! Fiji is a true paradise on earth: beautiful sandy beaches lined with coconut trees, fantastic lagoons with crystal clear waters and a breathtaking underwater universe.
Fiji is the heart of the islands and mountains, their rain forests with tropical vegetation and waterfalls.Films like 'The Blue Lagoon' and 'Cast Away' were filmed here and the scenery was quite authentic!
Fiji has been a known tourist destination for decades and those who want to drink cocktails on alabaster beaches will be satisfied. But the country has more than that to offer.
The underwater scenery is spectacular and you can find the most beautiful and accessible dive sites in the Pacific. Diving schools in the region have an impeccable reputation and even children can learn to dive here from 8 years of age. Fiji's reputation as the "capital of the world's coral" is well justified!
Northwest of the largest island of Fiji, Viti Levu, is the Yasawa Group, a chain of volcanic islands. A catamaran operates a daily service from one bay to another. The people of Fiji are known for their big heart and idling lifestyle in a relaxed atmosphere.
They are proud of their culture and still live according to ancient traditions. Nothing better to familiarize yourselves with the national mentality that spending time on one of the two main islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.
Two thirds of the population live in urban centers and it is on Viti Levu you'll find the two cities: Suva, the capital, and Lautoka, a port city that relies heavily on surrounding sugar cane farms. On the highlands of Viti Levu you will find a traditional Fijian village made of original huts: Navala.
Looking for a little more comfort? In the Arts Village, look at how the ancient culture comes to life in spectacular shows. Walking on fire will certainly be on the agenda!
The more adventurous among you may venture to taste Yaqona, a drink that is famous for its neurophysiological virtues and always served during a ceremony. Euphoria and relaxation guaranteed!
For lovers of wildlife, from May to September, schools of humpback whales and dolphins pass off the east coast of the island of Ovalau. An unforgettable experience to see!
Are you of the reckless kind and do not step back from a few bruises? Try sliding down the natural waterslide of 'Waitavala Waterslide' on the island of Taveuni. All throughout this experience, bird lovers will not believe their eyes between the hills and waterfalls.
Kayaking and rafting, you can do it anywhere. But in Fiji, you can get seven hours on the Wainikoroiluva river in a hollowed tree trunk! Clearly, an adventure expedition 'for the experienced!
