Yasawa Islands

Often the first stop for romantic getaways and honeymooners, the Yasawa Islands are a group of islands to the north of the mainland, Viti Levu. It’s not somewhere you would go on a quick weekend escape – to truly make the most of this beautiful setting, you’ll need at least several days, taking into account the 2- to 3-hour boat journey from Denarau. Alternatively, you can fly to the islands on a seaplane, or arrive in style by helicopter.

Savusavu, Vanua Levu

There’s a reason Savusavu is known as Fiji’s hidden paradise. It’s a long way off the beaten track and not a place most getaway travelers opt for, making it feel like a secret haven for those who take the time to get there. Situated on Fiji’s second largest island, Vanua Levu, Savusavu encompasses the feeling of a lazy beach town mixed with a tropical rainforest and stunning harbor views.

Natadola Bay

Natadola Beach is a favorite for many thanks to its accessibility on the mainland of Viti Levu and incredible snorkeling sites. The beach runs across the front of the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa, which offers golden sands and clear waters, with thriving marine life in the corals right off the beach.

Kadavu is an isolated island of Fiji where travelers can get a true appreciation for Fijian culture and tradition. It’s one of the least developed islands in the archipelago. With only a few roads, you won’t find many crowds – just unspoiled beauty, especially if you get up high.

Tavoro Waterfall, Taveuni

Fiji is home to a number of stunning and idyllic waterfalls, nestled in rainforest and jungle settings. One of those is the Tavoro Waterfall on the island of Taveuni. Also known as Bouma Falls, it is a series of three waterfalls in the Bouma National Heritage Park. The area receives frequent rain, which helps create a lush setting and powerful falls.

Coral Coast

The Coral Coast is often considered to be the most beautiful part of the mainland on Viti Levu. A number of resorts are located along this stretch of coastline and it has plenty of beaches, ocean views and snorkeling opportunities.

Sawailau Caves

The Sawailau Caves are famous, ancient limestone cave formations in the northern Yasawa Islands. The cave is said to be the resting ground of the ten-headed Fijian god Ulutini, with each chamber representing one of the god’s nine snake heads, while the pools are an ideal spot for swimming and snorkeling.
