Fiji Islands Guide: The Top 3

by Travelbag on 22 June 2016, 15:06PM

We all go for a South Pacific holiday for the same reason; relaxing on a white beach, turquoise sea lapping up onto shore, all washed down with your favourite cocktail. However, where Fiji really comes into a class of its own is how secluded it feels. As if the mainland resorts aren’t quiet enough, there are another 332 different islands. They can all be perfectly adjusted to be ideal for you, whether snorkelling is a must, a little bit of island hopping & exploring, or maybe something a little more cultural. Furthermore, with only 33% of the many islands inhabited, you get plenty of space (222 islands of space) and alone time – easy to see why it’s a romantic honeymoon favourite.

Viti Levu

Viti Levu Island, Fiji

The main of Fiji’s 332 islands, Viti Levu is the largest island and almost double the size of the second largest, Vanua-Levu. The Fijian paradise is home to a varying landscape, the country’s largest mountain, amazing beaches, and the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere, The Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple. When staying on this island, we recommend The Fiji Outrigger Resort (Five-Star) or The Naviti Resort (Four-Star). Both these resorts are set right on the beach and offer stunning ocean views. 

Denarau Island

Denarau Island, Fiji

This small island is connected to Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, by a short road bridge, so, the seasick amongst you shouldn’t have a problem reaching this relaxing haven. The Golfing retreat has everything you expect to find at a holiday resort, with a Hard Rock café, small shopping precinct and hairdressers all placed on the island and only ever a short walk away. There is also a nearby tribal-owned island, Akuilau Island, just 7 minutes by boat and offers a great day trip. We suggest a stay at the idyllic Sheraton Resort, this 5-star hotel is the ideal playground for anyone looking to experience what Denarau Island has to offer.

Qalito Island

Qualito Island, Fiji

This private 174-acre island offers a tropical rainforest centre surrounded by a shell of white sand beaches that lap up the topaz seas. The views from the seaplane, or helicopter transfer are unlike any you’ll have experienced before, passing small islands and watching Viti Levu disappear behind you. The only hotel is the ‘Castaway Island Resort’ and as a result, the island is more commonly known as Castaway Island. The accommodation is stunning, intimate thatched roof bures (traditional bungalows). You can choose from a range of bures whether you want to be right on the beach with the sound of waves lulling you to sleep, or further inland amongst the lush gardens.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to tell you about every island, we’d chew your ear off if you gave us the chance though! To learn more about an idyllic, secluded Fiji escape click here.
