Blessed with 333 magical islands, spread over thousands of miles of ocean in the heart of the South Pacific, a holiday to Fiji is an island-hopper’s dream! The Mamanuca Island group runs to the north west of the main island, Viti Levu, and consists of a string of sun-drenched white sand beaches and turquoise lagoons of your Robinson Crusoe dreams. Further north, the Yasawa Islands, with their rugged coastline and powdery-soft white sands are simply heavenly – there are 15 words in the Fijian language for ‘heaven’ – and Yasawa is one of them! Northern Fiji is home to lush tropical rainforests and pristine coral reefs - paradise for adventurers or divers.
WHY TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS LOVES FIJI
“The warm hospitality of the Fijian people – combined with unspoilt beaches, beautiful coral reefs, turquoise lagoons and tropical forests – will leave you smiling as brightly as the cheerful locals!” - Suzy Higgs, Product Manager
THINGS TO DO IN FIJI
We highly recommend splitting your time between at least two Fiji islands – and better still between two different regions - to really experience the country's diversity.
1. Break the journey with a stop in Los Angeles… a few days in sunny Santa Monica takes the edge off the long, but very worthwhile, flight! Or, from April 2016, Fiji's national carrier - Fiji Airways - commences twice weekly direct services between Singapore and Fiji, making this leading Asian hub an ideal and convenient stop en route to paradise!
2. For yachties, keen and novice, the calm, clear lagoons of the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands are ideal for a few days’ sailing.
3. Tear yourself away from the glorious beaches and head inland to experience the captivating island interior – go trekking, zip-lining, kayaking then cool down under a refreshing waterfall.
4. Chat to the locals and let their infectious, laid-back spirit transport you to ‘Fiji time’! You'll be greeted with uplifting Fijian song, and when the time comes to head home, the ‘Isa Lei’ (Fijian farewell song) is sure to leave you with a tear in your eye and a smile on your face.
Holidays to Fiji
Fiji holidays undoubtedly offer breathtaking scenery and pristine palm-lined beaches, but its true charm lies in the warmth of its people, whose easy smiles are infectious and whose laid back approach to life will ensure you soon settle into ‘Fiji time’!
