Fiji Travel Guide

An Unforgettable Journey Through Fiji

Fiji is a set of 333 islands in the South Pacific Ocean that offers a tropical getaway with turquoise waters, glittering sands, luxe resorts, and coral reefs. The weather is warm and sunny year-round, but the rainy season is from late November to April. The best time to visit Fiji is from May to October, but this is also the peak season for tourists from nearby Australia and New Zealand.


To avoid the crowds and enjoy more spontaneity, you can travel to the outer islands, like the Yasawas, which have fewer and shorter rain spells. Fiji also has great opportunities for hiking, birdwatching, and nightlife, as well as a unique culture and a welcoming population.

Start your journey in Nadi, the gateway to Fiji. Visit the vibrant Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, explore the local markets, and enjoy a traditional Fijian dish - 'kokoda' at a local restaurant. Get to Nadi via Fiji's main international airport, Nadi International Airport.

From Nadi, take a catamaran to the Mamanuca Islands, a group of 20 islands that boast some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Spend your days snorkeling, surfing, or simply lounging on the beach. Accommodations range from budget guesthouses to luxury resorts.

Next, head to Denarau Island, just a 20-minute drive from Nadi. This is a hub of luxury resorts, spas, a golf course, and a marina. Here, you can enjoy a sunset cruise, a Fijian cooking class, or a day trip to the nearby 'Sacred Islands'.

Take a domestic flight or a scenic drive to Suva, the capital of Fiji. Explore the Fiji Museum, indulge in local street food at the Municipal Market, and stroll around the Suva Seawall. Don't miss out on the vibrant nightlife here!
