Part of the Pacific Islands, the Fijian archipelago is made up of 333 islands and 540 islets that pave a pathway to paradise. Sun, sea, surf, jungle, coral reef, deeply-rooted culture and beautiful people complete the Fijian experience, not forgetting, luxury Fiji resorts that are second-to-none.
With borders reopening and international travel in the pipeline, now might just be the time to start thinking about the trip of a lifetime exploring the Fiji islands, where remote islands and quiet beaches await you.
With the help and insightful knowledge of our Local Experts with their feet in the sand in Fiji, let’s see what’s in store. Here are some of our favourite Fiji islands and trips that will make sure you live the best experience possible;
1. Matamanoa Island
Remote, secluded and quiet, Matamanoa Island is a resort island that could be your romantic getaway.
With only one resort on the island, you’ll feel like you have this little slice of Fijian paradise to yourself. This 6-day Matamonoa Island Paradise trip introduces you to a little bit of island life and what it is all about. In between your hours spent swaying gently in a hammock, you’ll have the chance to make this experience what you want it to be with swimming, snorkelling and kayaking at hand.
Take up the chance to do a PADI diving course and be introduced to the people that call Matamanoa home, where you’ll learn about and observe local practices of Kava and the Meke dance.
This trip is as private as trips can get, and is fully-customisable so you can enjoy your island seclusion your way. If you want this to be you, get talking to our Local Experts in Fiji!
2. Kokomo Island
Your very own private island? Go on then!
Kokomo Private Island Resort is where dreams come true, where you can gaze out across the Pacific Ocean and the Fijian archipelago and experience this remote island paradise your way.
On our 4-day Kokomo Island trip, you’ll take your pick of the resort activities that range from sailing around on the coral reef on a yacht to goofing around on a sea trampoline and cultural immersions with the locals who will share a little of their life with you. However you wish to spend your day, make sure you are out on the deck for a cocktail as the sunsets!
If that doesn’t feel luxurious enough, this fully-customisable trip includes your private jet to arrive on the island, where you’ll gaze across the cyan sea as you leave Fiji’s main island for your very own private one.
3. Castaway Island
Part of Mamanuca Islands, Castaway Island is another private resort island that beckons your call. The oldest of the private island resorts, Castaway Island will make you fall in love, so much so, you’ll come back again and again.
From the palm-fringed beaches to the tropical rainforests, this resort has all the ingredients ready for you to make your very own recipe for adventure and relaxation on this beautiful island. Staying in a private bure, your weekend getaway on Castaway Island could be spent checking out some of Fiji’s best surf spots or making the most of the resort facilities.
On one of the days, you’ll explore Qalito Island with your local guide. You’ll be in charge of how challenging the walk is while the guide shows you the most beautiful and interesting parts of the island, you might even learn a little about jungle survival on the way!
On your last night on Castaway Island, you’ll hop onto your kayak to become part of the picture as the orange hue of the sky reflects on the waters, showing off the gentle sheen of the ripples as the sun disappears from the horizon. Of all the things to do in Fiji, this is it.
If this paints a picture you can’t get enough of, take yourself to Castaway Island on this tour!
4. Yasawa Islands
A thin slither of 20 islands in the Pacific Ocean, the Yasawa Islands are protected by banks of coral reef.
A water-lovers dream, the Yasawa Islands offers mesmerising snorkelling experiences with coral gardens and hidden caves to explore. Unlike other islands mentioned here, the Yasawa Islands have heaps of accommodation options that provide bule traditional housing just off the beach as well as exclusive luxury resorts.
This Fiji island holiday takes you to two locations, Yanuca Island, just off of Fiji’s main island and the Yasawa Islands. Mixing relaxation with adventure, this trip is perfect for active couples, individuals and families.
On Yanuca Island, you’ll go on a riverboat safari and a zipline tour while still having time to relax on the beach before you take your seaplane to Yasawa – a memorable Fiji experience in itself!
Once on in the Yasawa Islands, you’ll have four beautiful days to relax and enjoy island life. Whether you want to chill by the pool, go snorkelling, hiking or want to tap into island culture; your exclusive island resort has everything at their fingertips, ready to make your trip one to remember.
This 9-day Coral Coast and Yasawa Island trip is open for you to do things as and when you see fit. If you wish to have a more active trip, you can chat with one of our Local Experts to make it happen.
5. Viti Levu
The largest of Fiji’s islands, the name Viti Levu translates to mean ‘Great Fiji’ the perfect way to explain this island; the main island of Fiji, where the capital is located. Home to dozens of white-sand beaches and mountain ranges, Viti Levu is a hive of activity. Home to 70% of the population of Fiji, this is also the best place to experience the Fijian culture.
While this trip makes Yanuca Island the base for your activities, you are offered a taste of what a holiday on Fiji’s mainland is all about with the chance to visit the impressive sand dunes of Sigatoka National Park; a vast desert plain that stretches across 450 hectares.
You can also visit Kula Adventure Park, where theme park activities are put into the jungle for an all-round more natural experience as part of your Coral Coast tour, the title for a stretch of land that goes from Sigatoka to Suva, the capital.
To finish the 4-day Coral Coast tour, you’ll explore its depths with your choice of water sport activity. Whether you are itching to try stand-up paddleboarding, want to go snorkelling or would prefer to relax on a glass-bottom boat, there is an option to suit you.
