A tropical oasis awaits.
There are few bucket list destinations in the world where they can easily be categorized as honeymoon locales and Fiji is one of them. But with new players in the game, Fiji is reinventing itself. With the horrific Cyclone Winston consuming most in its path in 2016, Fiji turned to recovery mode and decided to carve out a new hospitality niche--and let’s just say, it’s working. Tourism is up and there’s reason to consider this destination, whether you’re a honeymooner, adventure-seeker or something else entirely.

|Fiji is made up of 333 tropical islands with 110 being inhabited. Viti Levu is Fiji's largest island inhabiting over 800,000 people.|
A World Travel Award winner, Sigatoka River Safari is one of our favorite ways to go outside the typical tourist hubs of Fiji and explore. Touted as an eco-cultural-adventure, travelers are transported on a safari jet boat into a Fijian village and experience half a day in the “heart and soul” of Fiji. To top it off, part of your ticket for this tour directly helps the villages you visit with their interior projects, including creating clean water sources.

One would be remiss to visit Fiji and not witness the otherworldly reefs below the sea. PJ’s Snorkel Tour is the perfect way to snorkel without having to worry about a huge charter boat full of people--tours max out at 30 people. After snorkeling, you’ll head to a private island where you’ll get to relax on the beach and enjoy a true Fijian meal for lunch. This is a perfect way to see Fiji and its hidden, lesser-known corners.
Very important on any trip: Find a place where the coffee is strong. To top it off, this place has fresh food and large servings. Don’t miss their caramelized Vuda pork belly if you’re there for lunch.
Dinner al fresco is almost a requirement in Fiji. Celebrating homegrown and foraged ingredients, this local cuisine is some of the best you’ll try. Don’t miss their ceviche, orkokoda, Fiji’s version of the dish, which is balanced with coconut milk.
