The Top 4 Reasons to Visit Fiji Now – for Every Type of Traveler

Sunday, Jun 05, 2022 0

 

Dreaming of a little far-flung adventure? Visiting Fiji is the perfect answer—from excursions to explore unspoiled treasures deep in the South Pacific to 333 islands to choose from, many of which are untouched and uninhabited. We’ve made the planning easy with our round-up of the best of the best for every type of traveler, whether you want to amp up the adventure or wind down and relax.

 

The Explorer

 

Perfect Home Base: Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort, in the heart of the Coral Coast,  a.k.a. Fiji’s Adventure Gateway

 

There’s a reason why Fiji was chosen as the filming location for shows and films like “Survivor” and “Cast Away.” It has some of the most unspoiled rainforest ecosystems on the planet, and life won’t be able to catch up with you when you disappear into the lushness of Fiji’s dense South Pacific terrain.

 

Start on the beautiful main island of Viti Levu for exploration no matter which direction you travel: jungle hikes, river rafting, and city life.  Check out the eastern side’s Tailevu Coast to experience a life lived among dirt roads and mangroves, and then head north to drive through sugarcane farmland peppered by small villages (try a village tour). Or take the two-pedal route on an electric bike tour through the untouched beauty of the Coral Coast.

 

For extinct volcano adventures, go to the highlands of Viti Levu where you’ll find Fiji’s highest point of Mount Victoria. Take a trail from the village of Navai to reach Victoria’s 4,344-foot summit for a more advanced 4.5-kilometer hike (usually between three to six hours) where you’ll be treated to undisrupted views reaching as far as Yasawa Island on crystal-clear days.

 

Want even more adventure? Try diving with bull sharks (and the occasional tiger shark) in Bega Lagoon, hanging in Kula Adventure Park (Fiji’s only wildlife sanctuary), plus sand dune-ing, caving, zip lining and more.

 

The Water Lover

 

Perfect Home Base: Castaway Island, Fiji, in the Mamanuca Islands

 

While Fji’s largest island of Vitu Levu, a.k.a. “Big Fiji,” provides more than enough wonder, it’s only the beginning of your great escape. Head to the Mamanuca Islands for some cool adventuring above and below the waves.

 

Fiji is known as the “Soft Coral Capital of the World,” and you can snorkel among beautiful coral—try it at night to see neon coral lighting the abyss in electric shades of pink, purple and yellow. Dive with Castaway Island’s PADI-certified dive center to swim among eccentric tropical fish, from clownfish and angelfish to enrapturing sea snakes. Enjoy coral planting and other conservation activities to make a beautiful impact during your stay. Try the Cloud 9 floating bar or a post-water-adventure cocktail at the world’s first island beach club, Malamala.
