When was the last time you were dazzled by a genuine smile from a complete stranger? And we don’t mean that time you bashed into a fire hydrant while texting and walking at the same time. We mean from super-friendly people who live life on island time: slowly and peacefully. That’s all part of the Fijian experience.
Who says a fantasy getaway has to be, well, a fantasy? Just grab your sunnies and go, because we’ve got hot deals on flights to Fiji that’ll take you to the shores of the South Pacific with a fruity drink in no time. For eye candy, you get volcanic mountainside and blue ocean as far as you can see. Add in great food, Technicolor coral, affordable Fiji hotels and outdoor activities galore, and you’ll have heaps of things to do. By the end of your trip, you’ll already be planning your next visit.
Start your Fiji holidays in Viti Levu, the largest of the country’s islands. Explore the capital city of Suva, where you can browse local produce and pick up the freshest brekkie you’ll ever taste at the Municipal Market. You’ll find the best souvenirs, including native art, jewellery and fabrics at the Handicraft Centre.
On the western coast is Nadi, one of the most popular spots for travellers and holiday-makers because of its role as a primary transportation point. Check in at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, which is filled with vibrant orchids and other lush greenery. Get some sand on your feet at Newtown Beach and pop open a coldie (or try the “medicinal” kava) at the local restaurants, which are stocked with tropical fruit, fresh fish and other delightful treats.
You’ll find brilliant hotels in Fiji on nearly every island. Vanua Levu, the second-largest island, has plenty of rainforest and colourful marine life to see. If you’re in the mood for wilder, more untamed views, head off to one of the smaller outer islands, like Yasawa and Mamanuca to the northeast. These are popular resort destinations, but keep more of their undeveloped landscape, so you can get your fill of hillside hiking and dramatic sunset selfies. #islandlife
Fiji is also the place to go for white-water rafting, jet skiing and kayaking. If you’d like some time to dry off between dips, there’s always skydiving and helicopter tours to get your heart racing.
A plane trip is all that stands between you and Fiji’s Nadi and Suva international airports. Once you arrive, you can make friends immediately by taking one of the island’s “share-taxis” with other travellers from the airport to accommodation in Fiji. There are also public buses and private taxis available, along with motorbikes.
You can even get around like a local on a bicycle, which is sometimes best for crowded roadways. If you want to take your holiday to outlying resorts and the more remote Fijian islands, check out the local ferry companies.
Is your Fijian holiday in July? Nice! You’re just in time to check out one of the nation’s biggest festivals: Bula Festival. Going on annually since the ’60s, it turns Nadi into one big party full of local food, games and music. Oh, and a Ferris wheel. Hey, you can see some of our places to stay in Fiji from here! And you thought views from the beach were awesome.
If you’re on the islands in September, you’re in for an even sweeter time. The annual Sugar Festival is the best-tasting event since, well, breakfast. There’s tons to see and hear too, like a beauty pageant and cultural heritage celebrations.
Any night in Fiji should start with a sunset meal, like Kokoda (seafood marinated in lemon and coconut milk) on Momi Bay. Pro Tip: some of the best food in Fiji has more to do with the view than the ingredients. After that, the island is your oyster—or rather, your yellow fin tuna. Have a romantic night on Rendezvous Beach with that special someone or a wild night with new friends. Just remember, what happens in Fiji will be blogged about for years—that is, if anyone can remember it the next day.
Ready to celebrate choosing such a perfect location for your holiday? Pat yourself on the back, gussy up and head to Savuavu. Here, you’ll find a surprisingly hoppin’ nightlife. Get to know the locals better, dance till you drop or sample fruity umbrella-bearing cocktails. Make sure you know what you’re ordering, though—the local grog is actually kava, and it packs a wallop! After all, there is (probably) such a thing as celebrating too much.
Pop Quiz: How do you get the most out of your holiday if you only have a weekend or (gasp!) one day in Fiji? With so many islands and so much to do here, it’s tough to squeeze it all in. You might have to bring in some assistance.
Luckily, you can just hop on a Mamanuca Islands Day Cruise by South Sea Cruises. You’ll get tons of jealousy-inducing photos to show off on Facebook, guides to tell you about the fish and other wildlife, and the chance to take a dip in a turquoise lagoon. And the best part? You’ll still have the afternoon and evening to yourself.
Um, how about sample some uber-fresh seafood and root vegetables? Cheer on a local rugby team with your new smiling friends? Or maybe check out film sites for Cast Away and Blue Lagoon? Wait! We have the perfect rush for anyone jetting off to Fiji for the weekend: skydiving over some of the most beautiful islands in the world.
Too much? Okay, okay. How about hitting a market for some local crafts instead? That coconut bra is perfect for your next Halloween costume.
Toss your sunscreen in your beach bag and book your Fiji accommodation with lastminute.com.au for a low-stress getaway that’ll inspire major envy. We keep it easy (because commitment is hard), with the option to pay now or later when you search through tons of room choices. Bon voyage, traveller.
