Sunset Cruises from Port Denarau, Fiji

Watching the sunset over the ocean is one of the most romantic experiences you can have in Fiji. You can book a private sunset cruise with your partner, complete with champagne and hors d’oeuvres, and watch as the sky turns pink, orange and crimson. Some of these evening cruises, which launch from Port Denarau, often include dinner. Sailing down the crystal-clear seas past little islets and big forest-covered islands, while you’re being served chilled sparkling wine – now, that’s a bucket-list item for couples and honeymooners.

Wildlife Encounters: Overland and Underwater!

Fiji is home to a variety of unique wildlife, from sea turtles and dolphins to tropical birds and iguanas. You can take a guided tour to see these animals up close, or even swim with the sharks in some of the more adventurous tours. Some of the best wildlife encounters for couples include the Shark Dive at Beqa Lagoon, the Kula Eco Park, and the Turtle Island Turtle Sanctuary.

Who wouldn’t want a view like this with lunch, eh? FYI, that’s the lovely Vomo Island Fiji in the Mamanuca island chain.
