Fiji Travel Guide - Your destination overview of Fiji
Situated in the South Pacific Ocean, Fiji is comprised of more than 300 different islands, which come together to form a horseshoe-shaped archipelago. Of these islands, more than 100 are inhabited, which gives visitors to Fiji the opportunity to explore several stunning tropical islands.
The main gateway to Fiji is Nadi International Airport (NAN), which is located on the island of Viti Levu. Viti Levu is both the largest and most visited of the Fiji islands and a large number of tourist attractions, accommodation and facilities can be found here. There are also a number of other islands offering a tranquil tropical experience, all of which are connected by boat.
Fiji has its own rich and diverse culture, making this a fascinating place to get to know. From sizzling cuisine to vibrant song and dance performances, Fiji always manages to surprise and delight visitors.
Fiji's largest island is home to the main airport as well as some stunning beaches and attractions. Visitors can climb Tomanivi, the highest mountain in Fiji, for spectacular views of the island's traditional villages, sandy beaches and mangrove forests.
This is the second largest island and attracts visitors who are looking for a laid-back atmosphere. This is a good place for trekking through the untamed jungle and snorkeling in the cool, clear waters that surround the island.
This is the only place in the entire world that the tagimoucia flower can be found, making it a popular destination for botanists. Due to its small size, there are few places to stay on Taveuni, though the villages of Somosomo and Naqara offer a limited amount of accommodation.
Visitors in search of undeveloped natural beauty head south from Viti Levu to explore this island's traditional villages and sandy beaches. This island is also popular with scuba divers who come to explore the Astrolabe Reef, while surfers who head to Kadavu will find some of the best and biggest waves in Fiji.
Originally the capital of Fiji, Ovalau Island is home to the charming colonial town of Levuka. This is a fascinating place to explore and visitors will find some pristine beaches and clear waters here.
Offering some of the most spectacular beaches in Fiji, these tiny islands are best visited on a daytrip as there are few places to stay here. Visitors can spend several days hopping between islands here.
Located to the west of Viti Levu, this collection of islands features some stunning beaches and extremely luxurious resorts. Visitors who like to be pampered will find a piece of paradise here, and activities include snorkeling and sailing.
Also known as Fiji's ‘big fish capital', there are seven main islands in this group known as the Lomaiviti Islands. The pace of life is very gentle here and many visitors become enchanted by the intense natural beauty.
