Dive into Fiji where you'll find white sand beaches, coral reefs in crystal clear waters, palm trees and some of the friendliest welcomes anywhere. And with 333 tropical islands there is so much to discover. Try some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling available. And, away from the coast, why not experience the thrill of white water rafting or stretch your legs and hike up a mountain? Explore national parks with their bird-filled rainforests and visit some of Fiji's colourful temples.
Things to do and see
Launch yourself down a series of mini waterfalls at Waitavala Water Slide for an adrenalin rush, or try sandboarding down a giant dune. Or choose from activities like a jet-ski safari, windsurfing, water-skiing, kayaking or Hobie Cat sailing. Hire a mountain bike and get off the beaten track and explore the Nadi Mountain Range, once an area of active volcanoes which has spectacular views.
Take a helicopter ride over Denarau, the Mamanuca Islands and mountain ranges. Take a Nadi Village Tour and experience Fijian culture. Try the traditional Meke dance and shop for local handicrafts. Dive with sharks at the Shark Reef Marine Reserve. And treat yourself to some quality down time at a spa or Fiji's famous mud pools. And get those perfect holiday pictures at Navala, Fiji's most picturesque village with thatched huts, nestling in rugged, grassy mountains.
Arts and Culture
Find out more about Fiji's archaeological, cultural and political evolution at the Fiji Museum in Suva, which has artefacts dating back 3,700 years. Marvel at the traditional Hindu fire-walking ceremony that takes place at Mariamma Temple every July or August, part of a 10-day religious festival that coincides with a full moon. Or see typical Fijian, Dravidian architecture at the Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple, a major Hindu temple in all its carved, technicolour glory at Nadi.
Eating and drinking
Fijian cuisine is deceptively simple at first glance. Rice, sweet potatoes, fish, taro, coconut and cassava feature regularly, but open fire and underground cooking methods alchemise flavours into an unforgettable dining experience. And try the national drink of Kava, made from a plant root which promotes a sense of calm and well-being. Enjoy sea views from the Coconut Grove Restaurant at Matei which serves vegetarian dishes and international cuisine. Or taste fusion cuisine at Mantarae Restaurant in Pacific Harbour which also has a good wine selection. And bluesy music accompanies spicy Cajun-style cooking at Baka Blues Café, also in the Pacific Harbour marketplace.
Ovalau Club, formerly a gentlemen's club in Levuka, is a stylish white timber colonial affair with a snooker table and local bands. Take in South Pacific views from the balcony of Waitui Marina in Savusavu, or bump and grind to local and international sounds at Uros (or 'sexy'), also in Savusavu.
For craft objects head to Suva Curio & Handicraft Centre in Suva and be prepared to barter. But be warned; everything may not be as genuine as made out. Better is Suva Flea Market.
