Fiji is located in the tropical South Pacific and the Islands are surely the essence of any tropical island paradise. White sandy beaches, swaying coconut trees, pristine oceans and waterways and a range of things to do and see are all that any discerning traveler would want and Fiji has all of this. Fiji’s hotels are some of the best in the world. Revel in the 5-star resorts, stroll on the glimmering white beaches hand-in-hand at sunset, snorkel, dive, surf or kayak the pristine oceans, whitewater raft the clear and clean waterways, cruise the ocean around the mainland and outer Fiji Islands, trek the rainforests, backpack the outer islands, visit the welcoming villages and experience sustainable living or immerse yourself in the unique culture and history.
If it is the big city you desire, check out Nadi, the jet town. Nadi is full of action, with jammed packed streets, enticing shops, and exquisite dining. Most who visit Fiji want little more than a white-sand beach, a cloudless sky and the opportunity to fall into a sun-induced coma under a palm tree. On this score, Fiji doesn’t disappoint either. The Mamanuca and Yasawa islands in the north dangle in front of the world as idyllic South Sea Edens – their reefs and cobalt blue waters providing cinematic eye candy for films such as Tom Hanks’ Cast Away and Brooke Shields’ The Blue Lagoon. Fiji has been receiving tourists and honeymooners for decades and c combination of the Nadi and Denarau island-hopping-escape itinerary is the starting point of all holidays. The underwater scenery is spectacular and some of the finest, and most accessible, dives in the Pacific can be found here. Its reputation as the ‘soft coral capital of the world’ is well justified and with the opening of the country’s first Overwater bungalow resort on Malolo called Liko Liko, Fiji remains a popular, exotic and yet an affordable destination for Indians.
