Experience Fiji, an archipelago of 333 islands blessed with palm-lined beaches, coral reefs and warm, friendly people.
Fiji is a leader in eco-tourism and famous for its soft coral diving, white sand beaches and pristine natural environment. Weddings and honeymoons in Fiji are heavenly and families and children have a special place here.
The islands of Fiji abound with everything from tumbling jungle waterfalls to white-sand beaches fringed with coconut palms. Fiji isn’t just about idyllic South Pacific islandscapes. What makes these islands so enchanting are the people - establish eye contact for a second, and you’ll find yourself downing kava with the local chief and shouting “Bula!” Fiji is truly the friendliest place in the world.
VITI LEVU ISLAND
Viti Levu is the largest of the islands. Home to the capital city of Suva, as well as the majority of Fiji's residents, it's also the site of Fiji's primary airport, which is near Nadi on the western side of the island. Viti Levu's interior is dominated by mountains, including Mt. Tomanivi, an extinct volcano. Nearly half of Fiji’s population is of Southeast Asian heritage, descendants of the Indians and Bengalis who came to work the British sugar-cane plantations in the late 1800s.
Explore the forested foothills of the Sabeto Range where late actor Raymond Burr created the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, a botanic sanctuary of vanilla-scented orchids and Zen-like lily ponds. Browse for traditional Fijian crafts such as wooden kava bowls, hand-painted saris and scepter-like cannibal forks at Nadi’s souvenir market. Discover the country’s Indian legacy at Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple, an elaborately painted Hindu temple. To get a different vantage of Fiji’s topography, take a helicopter tour from Nadi International Airport to the Mamanuca Islands, a string of islets that stretch for miles northwest of Vitu Levu. One of the highlights: Monuriki, the island Tom Hanks made famous in Castaway. You can also take day trips to the islands or experience them on a multi-day cruise.
