An adventure playground of white sand beaches and lush rainforests, thriving coral reefs and fish-filled lagoons.

Fiji is scattered across 1,290,000 square kilometres of ocean, a tropical paradise of palm-fringed white sand beaches and lush rainforests ringed by thriving coral reefs and fish-filled lagoons. The unique biodiversity includes thriving marine eco-systems, cloud rainforests, healthy mangroves and a diverse range of national parks.

Fiji is globally renowned for world-class snorkelling, surfing and diving, complemented by impressive mountains and lush rainforests just waiting to be explored. Explore Savusavu, Kadavu, Taveuni the Beqa Lagoon and countless more marine parks and reserves to immerse yourself in unspoilt nature and be amazed by the marine life.

Visit the Sigatoka Sand dunes – Fiji’s first national park to scour its towering slopes for beachy treasures and learn about some of the nation’s first settlers. Remote and uncrowded, Kadavu in the extreme south is the perfect tropical paradise to hide out in when you need to unplug from the world.

The quiet, natural beauty of the outer islands provide the perfect escape for curious adventurers and cultural connoisseurs. It’s worth stopping over at Levuka – the colonial capital – on Ovalau Island. and soak up the UNESCO World Heritage town’s dramatic scenery and intriguing history.

Pacific Harbour has dramatic mountains, winding waterways and the spectacular Beqa Lagoon as its playground, the region is jam-packed with activities including waterfall hunting on 4WD jaunts into the jungle – zipping through the canopy or battling rapids on the Navua River. On the water, there are jet ski safaris to Beqa Island, big-game fishing and some of the best diving and surfing spots in Fiji to fill your days.

Kadavu’s vine-tangled jungles, rocky headlands and isolated beaches feel wild and raw. The Great Astrolabe Reef – one of the largest barrier reefs in the world – hugs Kadavu’s southern border reaching up east to wrap around Ono and a cluster of other small islands in the archipelago. It’s heaven for snorkellers, divers and deep-sea fishermen; a watery Eden where you can swim alongside majestic manta rays, dive colourful coral gardens or explore remote bays on ocean-going kayaks. More adventures await you on land along hiking trails that are swallowed up by dense rainforest and re-emerge at spring-fed waterfalls and secluded white-sand beaches.

Picturesque Savusavu – a quaint coastal town built on the backs of the copra, beche-de-mer and sandalwood trades – is the island’s tourism hub. Spectacular reefs can be found minutes from the mainland so it’s no surprise that diving’s also huge here. Discover painted seascapes at the Namena Marine Reserve or admire the colourful coral on a snorkel at Split Rock. There’s plenty to tempt you into the rainforest and rivers too. Like a leisurely kayak around the Salt Lake, cool dips under a raging waterfall or a trek into the Waisali Rainforest reserve. On the island’s opposite coast there’s the lure of Labasa’s mysterious Snake rock temple and the chance to fill your bellies with some of Fiji’s tastiest Indo-Fijian cuisine.
