Fiji is an archipelago of 333 islands that are sparsely scattered over 200,000 square miles of the South Pacific Ocean. Only one third of these islands are inhabited – with three of these islands making up 85% of the total land of Fijian authority. These very secluded islands are amongst the most rural on earth, meaning that Fiji is perfect for a peaceful holiday. The natural beauty of these islands is something that you cannot truly understand until you have visited them – pictures just don’t do it justice.
Best Time to Visit
Fiji is lucky not to have any distinct seasons – however, May to November sees slightly cooler weather and a less humid climate. This may be better suited to some clients as this also carries a lower chance of rainfall than other months.
The most popular resort for leisure is the Islands that make up the Mamanucas. They are a collection of reef and sand-fringed islands off the shore of Nadi. The premier resorts of the region are found here, offering scuba diving, boating, snorkelling and amazing beaches for relaxation.
History and Culture
Fiji’s people are extremely hospitable and welcome all visitors to the region with open arms. Their greeting is unique to the islands, ‘Bula’, meaning welcome. You’ll hear this everywhere you go on the islands.
Things to Do

- Snorkelling and scuba diving in the South Pacific will reveal a whole new world – the tropical marine life is like no where else in the world.
- Take to your sun-lounger, order a cocktail and enjoy the beautifully tranquil surroundings you are in.
