A sun-kissed culture of vivid colour, Fijians inhabit an idyllic oasis of soft golden beaches, while the deep cobalt blue seas dissolve into crystal-clear surf upon the shore. With world-class resorts and five-star hotels making Fiji the most well-connected and lavish of all the Pacific archipelagos, you’ll be delighted by what Fiji has to offer. Whether you’re diving amid the soft coral, trekking into the island’s spectacular terrain, or savouring the fascinating island culture, you’ll quickly fall in love with this blissful island teeming with life.
Flights to Fiji from London take you into Nadi International Airport, which is a short distance from the town centre. Featuring the largest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere, Nadi leads onto the sublime Natadola Beach – a stunning introduction to Fiji’s exotic charms.
A trip to the astonishing beauty of Mamanuca Islands is an unforgettable experience. From these languid shores, you’ll be free to explore the sumptuous coral reef lying under the turquoise lagoons. Rich in soft coral, scuba diving around the reefs reveal a wonderland of brilliantly-coloured sea creatures. If you’re after an adventure, the emerald forests of the Sabeto Mountains offer stunning panoramas of Fiji’s geo-thermal landscape.
The capital city of Savu is a vibrant metropolis and largest city in the South Pacific. Home of Fijian culture, there are many opportunities to sample the island’s exuberant tribal heritage. The Fiji Museum provides valuable insight into island history, while the Mariamma Temple is decorated in elaborate Hindu statues and regularly hosts fire-walking festivals.
Fijian cuisine is an exciting mix of Pacific, Asian and Australasian styles, with a strong tradition in sea food dishes. Enjoy fresh coconut while dining on kokoda, raw walu fish, or savouring fish and chicken stew bursting with bold flavours. Meanwhile, kava is a popular island drink.
