Fiji is an archipelago of 300 islands and 540 islets in the Pacific Ocean. It may seem like a lot but only 100 islands are inhabited. The largest island, Viti Levu, is home to the capital, Suva.
Fiji’s white sandy beaches, swaying coconut palms and jewel-blue seas teeming with pristine coral reefs make it a tropical island paradise. It’s a perfect destination for any type of traveller from honeymooners to budget backpackers.
Most travellers drop by on their way to or from Australia and New Zealand in search of tropical sun and the island life. The lifestyle can be too irresistible for some and it’s not uncommon to see foreigners settling in for a season or even permanently.
Fiji’s popular backpacking route is an island-hopping excursion through the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands. There you will find beautiful resorts to suit any budget, activities including snorkelling with reef sharks and manta rays and some of the friendliest hosts you will ever meet. In the evening, resorts and homestays entertain you with fire-dancing shows, songs, games and kava drinking ceremonies.
Once you arrive in Fiji, the first rule you should remember is that you’re on ‘Fiji Time’ now. All you need to do is sit back, relax and let the blissful beauty of Fiji wash over you.
