Luxurious ocean-front villas and white sandy beaches for as far as the eye can see. Adventure and indulgence awaits in Fiji.
From overwater bungalows and adult-only retreats to the adventure-packed Yasawa Islands, world-class reefs and family-friendly set-ups complete with nannies, kids’ clubs and activities that will keep little ones entertained for hours, there is literally something for everybody in picture perfect Fiji.
Where to go:
The Yasawa Islands, an archipelago of 20 volcanic islands on Fiji’s north western side, is a haven for adventurous travellers.
WHAT TO DO:
The long stretches of white sandy beaches make this place a sun-lovers paradise, but it’s what’s under the crystal-clear waters that will really impress avid divers and snorkellers. Fiji is one of the only places in the world where you can swim, snorkel or dive with the majestic manta rays; for manta encounters it’s best to visit between Mayand October.
Venture to the Yasawa Islands and visit the sensational Sawa-i-Lau Caves. The series of limestone caves are the result of hundreds of years of water wear, carving out the unique formations, some of which are only accessible by swimming through narrow waterways.
Where to stay:
Located on the northern tip of the Yasawa Islands (not too far from Sawa-i-Lau Caves) is Oarsman’s Bay Lodge, one off our resorts on the Island of Nacula (the third largest of the Yasawa Island chain). The Beachfront Bures are a popular choice for those wanting to take in the pristine views; if you’re after a bit of culture you can visit an authentic Fijian school or village.
There are direct flights twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays) from Adelaide to Nadi, Fiji, with Fiji Airways. Once you’re there, getting around is easy –there are express bus services or you can hire a car or a driver. If you’re staying on the islands, daily passenger ferries offer transport to the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands, alternatively water taxis departing from Port Denarau Marina will get you to where you’re going.
