A vacation to Fiji is one you will never forget. An island county in the South Pacific, Fiji is made up of more than 333 islands, 100 of which are permanently inhabited. Many of the islands were formed through volcanic activity, and some geothermal activity still occurs there.
The largest island in Fiji is Viti Levu, which is also home to Suva, Fiji’s capital and largest city. Suva is a bustling and lively city with parks, museums, gardens and an exciting nightlife. The island boasts the Botanical Gardens of Thursten, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes and the Colo-I-Suva Forest Park. Travelers have many choices of accommodations, activities and dining when visiting Suva, which is easily traveled by bus or taxi.
Fiji is a leader in eco-tourism, and a visit to the island of Taveuni is proof of that. It’s known as the Garden Island for its abundance of native plants and wildlife as well as its nature reserves, where visitors can hike and birdwatch in one of the most unique environments on Earth.
Fiji is famous for its soft coral reefs, and is actually known as the soft coral capital of the world. The reefs, combined with the warm, clear water of the lagoons are perfect for scuba diving – a very popular activity for travelers in Fiji. Other water activities are popular in Fiji, too, such as sailing, kayaking, surfing, kite surfing and fishing.
Honeymooners love Fiji for its romantic resorts and dream-like location. But the islands are also family-friendly and many resorts have kids’ clubs and nanny services to cater to a family’s needs. While the kids are enjoying their activities, parents can golf on a championship golf course, get pampered at a spa or relax on a breathtaking white sand beach. Fiji is a beautiful vacation destination for any traveler.
