The most-visited country in the list of South Pacific nations, there are scores of reasons why Fiji is always on the number one position. This island destination’s airbrushed beaches, tropical forests, delectable fusion cuisine, along with the people’s warm hospitality makes it a holiday to remember.
With 333 islands containing numerous resorts, tonnes of activities in crystal-clear waters, over 1,500 species of fish and colourful coral reefs for snorkelling and diving – Fiji leaves the traveller in constant wonder. It is therefore no surprise that many travelogues and magazines regularly vote Fiji as one of the best travel destinations in the world!
Fiji’s population is a homogenised assimilation or a multi-cultural, multinational potpourri which lends to its amazing rainbow of cuisines, traditions and beliefs. The indigenous Fijian are descendants of ancient Polynesian and Melanesian explorers who made these islands their home. Over the centuries, sizeable numbers of Indians, Chinese, Japanese and European have also settled in.
Let our Specialists book you trips to Fijian villages and learning about the country’s centuries-old culture via stories, songs, and dance. Visiting during festivals is always a good idea, too! Suva has one of the largest New Year celebrations with an annual street party. Nadi’s Bula Festival and Suva’s Hibiscus Festival both occur in August and they showcase the epitome of Fijian warmth and hospitality. A series of cultural extravaganzas, dances and shows mark the high points of the festivals. Party-hoppers and music aficionados shouldn’t miss music festivals like BlueSky Fiji (Mana Island) and Spring Break Fiji (Beachcomber Island).
As with its people, the Fijian cuisine is a mish-mash of indigenous as well as international favourites. The traditional Fijian cuisine, as with Oceanic fare, is based on staples like root vegetables, fish and special festive preparations like the lovo feast, entrees like Kokoda (a delicious chilled dish made of marinated salmon/mackerel, diced veggies and coconut cream) and traditional desserts like coconut cream pudini!
In Fiji, there is something for everyone to do, experience and enjoy. Islands like Savusavu, Natadola and Mamanucas in Viti Levu are simply unbeatable for the sheer amount of adrenaline-pumping activities like deep sea diving, mountain-climbing, windsurfing. Pacific Harbour and Beqa are known for jet-ski safaris, yacht charters, parasailing, diving and off-road four-wheel drive safaris shark dives and ziplining. For nightlife and shopping, the Denarau Marina is a hot-spot with clubs like Hard Rock Fiji and restaurants offering Indian, Fijian, Chinese and Spanish cuisines.
