The Islands

Fiji’s 332 islands are scattered over a vast area of the Pacific Ocean, some 1,290,000 sq km in extent. The main island of Viti Levu is about 10,400 sq km in area, with high rainfall in the east and much lower rainfall in the west. The country’s first and third biggest cities respectively – Suva and Nadi – are located at opposite ends of Viti Levu, like sentinels guarding against enemy invasion – only these days, the invaders are friendly, coming as tourists rather than cannibal-warriors.

Fiji’s main international airport used to be near Suva, but because of the consistently bad weather conditions, the airport was moved to Nadi in 1982. As a result, most of Fiji’s tourist development and facilities are concentrated around Nadi and the southern “Coral Coast” of Viti Levu. Nadi also makes a great base for exploring the Mamanuca and Yasawa island groups, the southern island of Kadavu, and the “garden island” of Taveuni, with easy access also to the laid-back port of Savusavu on Vanua Levu Island.

Denarau Island

Less than 10 kilometres from Nadi, Denarau is an upscale resort island accessed via a causeway from the main island of Viti Levu. Built on former mangrove swamps, Denarau is a man-made sanctuary comprising eight integrated hotel resorts, including six world-class resorts; Sheraton Hotel (and Sheraton Villas, making it a two-in-one integrated resort) Hilton, Sofitel, The Westin and Radisson Blue. The sand flanking the island’s beaches is, in parts, golden sand imported from further afield. Nevertheless, what Denarau lacks in platinum-white sand, it more than makes up for in high-end facilities. Boasting an eighteen-hole championship golf course, regarded the best in the South Pacific, it’s also home to an abundance of restaurants, a charming marina and premium swimming pools at every resort.

Coral Coast

Nestled between Nadi and Suva, Fiji’s Coral Coast is an 80km expanse of beaches and bays dotted along the Ocean Road. Fringing the South Pacific Ocean, the coastal views are the very epitome of picturesque. Despite the fact the Coral Coast doesn’t boast the golden sand beaches that much of Fiji does, the long stretches of exposed reef and wide banks of coral are breath-taking in their own right. With various resorts all offering perfect swimming pools, a variety of decent dining establishments and plenty of activities to keep visitors of every age entertained, it’s a fantastic base for exploring Fiji’s many treasures.

With nearly 50 percent of the population being of Indian origin, curries feature strongly on the menus of many local restaurants. Native Fijian dishes include fish, pork, chicken and/or vegetables all wrapped in banana leaves and cooked in an underground lovo oven. Drinking kava or yaqona (pronounced: “yanggona”) is the common Fijian way of relaxing after work much as Westerners go to the pub. On more formal occasions, kava-drinking is accompanied by much ceremonial ritual.

Fiji is really a shoppers delight, a place where you can get anything from brand name items to the most personal and exceptional native handcrafts. There are various villages and marketplaces to stroll around. Perhaps the best place to start the shopping adventure is in the main cities. Nadi for example is one of the most favourite shopping cities in all of Fiji since there are plenty of fantastic bargains and the items are duty free too. Suva and Lautoka are also great shopping towns.

If you like to shop cloths, check out the incredible fabrics and the lovely silks. Why not buy something that will remind you of your time in Fiji? A Sulu, for example, is a traditional Fijian sarong or dress.
