Fiji has some stunning and idyllic waterfalls nestled among lush rainforests and jungles. The Bouma Falls in Taveuni is perhaps the most famous, and striking waterfall in the islands.

Sunsets in Fiji are nothing short of magical. The light lingers after the sun has dropped into the horizon, bathing the islands in the most perfect pink, red and golden hues.

Beachfront Bures

Wake to endless views of the ocean, with the smell of hibiscus, coconuts and frangipanis drifting through the room. Beachfront or beach-view bures (straw huts) are available at most of Fiji’s resorts, offering a traditional yet luxurious touch to your island holiday. Drift off to sleep to the sound of the sea and the gentle ocean breeze, bringing relief from the heat of the day.

Waterfront and poolside dining

With over 330 islands to choose from, waterfront or poolside dining is easy to find. Enjoy a meal and a glass of wine with the warm tropical breeze cooling you down and find serenity in the glassy reflections of palm trees and evening lights on the water.

The underwater world

Given about 70% of the world is water, it’s only fair to include Fiji’s famously bright and thriving underwater world to help prove why Fiji is heaven on earth. Tropical fish, bright mollusks and colourful soft corals are all things that should be celebrated when we praise Mother Nature.

Fire Dancing

Fijians have a wonderful knack for entertaining, and one of those ways is through their incredible skill of throwing, spinning and catching various items and sticks that hold fireballs. Fire dancing shows are held throughout Fiji’s various resorts and are mesmerising to watch.

Endless oceans and beaches

This is what Fiji is most famous for; the blue lagoons and azure waters, white sand beaches and islands surrounded by incredible reefs. Paradise has been found.

Dramatic volcanic landscapes

Perhaps what most tourists are unaware of is Fiji’s rural beauty and its volcanic landscape. With jagged rock faces piercing the skyline set against lush rolling hills and mountains, it’s worth turning your head away from the beach view once in a while.
