Picking Your Perfect Fijian Island
With over 300 islands at your doorstep, where do you start? Our Travel Specialists love Fiji and will happily advise, but here's an overview of some popular destinations:
Home to the nation's capital, Suva, Viti Levu is Fiji's most populated island. Nadi International airport is located here too.
Choose Denarau Island (connected to the mainland by a causeway) for high-end resorts and cocktail culture. For something a little more down to earth, the Coral Coast boasts family-friendly resorts and secluded coves.
Laid-back Pacific Harbour is Fiji's adventure capital, a major hub for snorkeling, scuba, jet-boating, and even shark diving!
The Mamanuca Islands
You might recognise the Mamanucas from their starring role in the Tom Hanks film "Castaway". Their seductive seclusion is popular with honeymooners, and they have provided the backdrop for many a barefoot beach wedding.
Surfers flock here for Fiji's iconic left-hand break: Cloudbreak is considered one of the world's top ten waves. The closest group of islands to Nadi Airport, the Mamanucas are a great option for a short stay.
The Yasawa Islands
North of the Mamanucas, the Yasawas have a more rustic vibe. Travellers weren't allowed on the islands until the 1950s, meaning they are less developed, with accommodation options aimed more at flashpackers and lower-budget honeymooners.
For an authentic unspoiled island getaway with resorts run by local people rather than big-budget luxury, the Yasawas are just a 30-minute seaplane ride from Nadi.
