Fiji Islands

Fiji is made up of over 332 islands - so there's a lot of ground to cover! But if you're looking for our top three - where you can experience local community life, as well as the feeling of being in paradise, then read on for our top three!

Nadi

If you're looking to pick up some hand-crafted Fijian souvenirs, then check out Nadi's famous handicraft market (like a treasure trove for adults), or if you're looking for luxury then head to the paradise island of Denarau, to the west of Nadi, which is home to eight resorts.

Yasawa Island

The place to go if you want to live the chilled island life that Fiji promises - the idyllic Yasawa islands lie just offshore of the mainland, and offers lots of watersports such as snorkeling, diving, and sailing. Take part in activities during the day, and then spend the evening with the sand between your toes, sipping a cocktail and watching the sunset over the island.

Mamanuca Islands

The island for the adventurers! Mamanuca Island is made up of 20 islands with the choice of surfing, cruising, or getting pampered in a spa. Not only does it offer adventure, it also offers relaxation - with clear blue sea, warm white sand, and amazing weather to top up your tan.

Getting to Fiji

Fiji is located in the tropical South Pacific, about 1,300 miles north of New Zealand. Traveling to Fiji from the USA is easy, with nonstop flights on Fiji Airways to Nadi from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Honolulu. Flying time from California is about 10-11 hours, and just 7 hours from Hawaii. We highly suggest building in a stopover in Fiji on your way to Australia or New Zealand.

Fiji Weather Lowdown

Fiji is the perfect place to take a vacation as it's a year-round destination, but you've got to make sure you pick the right time. We recommend the off-peak season (March-October) to beat the crowds of families, with Fiji's dry season occurring between May-September.
