Welcome to the Fiji Islands!
Not far away, in the turquoise waters of the South Pacific, lie the islands of Fiji…
Fiji has been called the world’s friendliest paradise. Three hundred and thirty sunny, magical islands in the romantic South Seas.
The Fiji Islands are comprised of a thousand miles of sparkling white sand beaches, fabulous coral gardens for snorkeling, dramatic walls for SCUBA diving the “soft coral capital of the world” with hews of purple, yellow, red and lavender.
Azure lagoons… an unspoiled, exotic environment of beauty and tranquillity… a blend of rich cultures… a place to unwind or to discover new experiences. Fiji beach resorts and Fiji romantic hotels are ready to accommodate your every wish.
For the Lovers of Nature
Fiji is for fantastic fun, for discovering your own private island, for being as busy as you want, or for doing absolutely nothing.
Fiji is also a nature lover’s Eden. Adrift in the splendid isolation of the blue waters of the South Pacific, the islands have escaped the ravages of the western world.
Fiji has more than three hundred species of nativeorchids, as well as hundreds of varieties that have been imported from places around the world.
Inside the many tropical forest reserves, you can walk surrounded with the scent of wild frangipani. The islands are Nature’s playgrounds, teeming with jabbering parrots that swoop through treetops and rare turtles that nest along the beaches.
Weddings, Honeymoons and Romance
The Fiji Islands are our favorites for honeymoons and romance. Many of Fiji’s top resorts offer special honeymoon suites, bures, treehouses and honeymoon or wedding packages.
Visit our Romantic Fiji section for more information.
Wonders abound below the waterline as well. Known as the “soft coral” capital of the world, Fiji SCUBA diving attracts divers seeking a world class diving experience.
Fiji’s incredibly diverse fish life will amaze you with her clown fish, butterfly fish, angelfish, mantas, sharks and numerous species found only in the Pacific region.
For snorkeling, Fiji’s waters are rated to be among the very best on earth.
Fiji’s countless miles of coral reefs are teeming with colorful tropical fish providing a phenomenal wildlife experience.
With water temperatures that average 78 in winter and 82 in the summer, the gin clear waters are idyllic for discovering the underwater treasures.
Fiji’s Dive Resorts offer a combination of relaxation and superb diving. Fiji’s resorts are among the best the world has to offer and range from affordable hotel style rooms to luxury villas on private islands.
Liveaboard dive boats provide the best Fiji scuba diving chance for you to experience some of the world’s most exotic diving. Liveaboard diving vessels allow you to bring your “floating hotel”, and all associated comforts to the reef along with you, (including wonderfully prepared meals). Relaxing in the sun or delightful beach and village excursions between dives are not to be missed.
For Fijians, generosity and kindness are a way of life. From the time they are young, children are taught to look after the needs of others.
A fascinating ancient heritage composed of many elements, based on village life make this land rich with tradition.
Watch the traditional yagona or kava being prepared in a time-honored ceremony. Savor local dishes such as taro root, tapioca, and delicious local fish prepared in a lovo, the traditional underground oven of Fiji.
With a richness of many cultures Fijian, Indian, European, and Chinese living in harmony – the hospitality of the people will change your life forever.
Small villages and bustling markets bring out the charm of every day life in Fiji. Glorious festivals enrich the calendar … experience the Hibiscus Festival in Suva or Diwali, the Indian’s festival of lights. Watch the enchanting firewalkers and marvel in how they walk over the hot coals. Discover the Fijian people in the way we have and you will discover the soul of the islands.
On land, Fiji is very diverse with much to experience.
The activities include golf, tennis, Shotover Jet boats, taking an exciting ride down the Navua River on a bilibili, trekking to a Fijian village through the Nausori highlands, swimming underneath waterfalls, lazing on Fiji’s incredible beaches … the list goes on and on.
On some islands horseback riding is available, on most, bush walking, beach combing and bird watching are a must.
Accommodations are available for every taste and budget. At most private Fiji beach resorts, your “room” will be a spacious, free-standing bure (bur-ey), a Fijian style thatched bungalow or villa.
Many of these are architectural treasures in their own right. Traditional tapa cloth, handmade from local mulberry bark, and traditional Fijian artifacts are often used to decorate the walls of the more luxurious bures. Many of these handsome bures come with ceiling fans and have glass louvered windows that let in the tropical breezes and the sounds of the sea.
If you prefer a more traditional resort hotel that is built with balcony terraces overlooking the South Seas, you will find these as well. Lodging comes in all styles and price ranges, from as little as $50 per night to luxury resorts over $1000 per night if you really want to pamper yourself. Fine dining or informal picnics reflect the many influences of the way of life in Fiji. Wherever you stay, your holiday or honeymoon in Fiji is sure to seem like a South Pacific dream come true.

We leave you with this special Fijian song…
Farewell to Fiji
Isa , Isa, vulagi lasa dina – Isa Isa,you are my only treasure
Nomu luko au na rarawa kina, – Must you leave me, so lonely and for saken
Cava beka ko a mai cakava – As the rose will miss the sun at dawning
Nomu lako au na sega ni lasa – Every moment my heart for you is yearning
Isa lei, na noqu rarawa – Isa lei, the purple shadows falling
Ni ko sana vodo e na mataka – Sad the morrow will dawn upon my sorrow
bau nanuma, na nodatou lasa – Oh! forget not, when you’re far away
Mai Fiji Islands nanua tiko ga. – Precious moments beside dear Fiji isles
This song is dedicated to our Fijian friend, Timoci Matana,
and the wonderful people of Matangi Island.
… Fiji is a very special part of our lives…
Vinaka, Linda Gutekunst, President
