Fiji has it all, from mountain treks to sandboard experiences, sundowners at the beach, to a helicopter tour over the beautiful islands. If you’re planning to head to this beautiful part of the world in 2022, the bucket list experiences in this guide should help make your visit one to remember.
Here are Tourism Fiji’s top 5 experiences:
Sunrise Trek with Talanoa Treks
Looking beyond the beaches, Fiji has an incredible interior and lush mountains, perfect for trekking. You can experience a private guided sunrise trek with Talanoa Treks and soak in the breathtaking views.
Sandboard the golden dunes of Sigatoka
Situated by the mouth of the Sigatoka River are dunes perfect for experiencing sandboarding. However, if you fancy more than just traversing through the soft sands, you can get fit like a rugby player by challenging yourself to one of their strenuous work-outs.
Sundowners at Wailoaloa Beach
Only 3km from Nadi, you witness Wailoaloa Beach come alive at sunset. Enjoy the view from the rooftop bar at Ramada Suites for views across the ocean as the sun goes down. After dark, enjoy the beachfront bars of Bamboo, Smugglers Cove and Sailors for cheap eats and a bottle of Fiji Gold- you might even catch a live band!
Romantic Heli-tour over heart island
Loved-up couples can treat themselves to a 25-minute helicopter tour over the Fijian islands shaped like a heart, where many golden mid-air proposals have been known to take place. Tavarua, the small island that looks like a heart from the air, is surrounded by natural reefs and world-class surf, where guests have stunning views across the Mamanuca islands.
Feel golden at Malamala Beach Club
Whether you want to soak up the sun, paddleboard, snorkel the great waters, or simply relax with some fine foods and drinks at the adults-only beach club, Malamala in the Mamanuca Islands is perfect for grown-up fun and relaxation. For a truly private experience, you can also hire one of the island’s cabanas with waiter service.
“We are ecstatic that Fiji’s borders are open to international visitors,” says Tourism Fiji’s CEO Brent Hill. “After two years, Fiji is ready to welcome you back. The islands are more beautiful than ever, and the locals just as warm and friendly, and we are thrilled to be able to offer them again.”
The island country is located in the heart of the South Pacific, just ten hours from Los Angeles (LAX) or San Francisco (SFO), only seven hours from Honolulu, Hawaii (HNL) and 8-9 hours from Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong; 3 hours from New Zealand and 4-5 hours from Australia.
The country is comprised of 333 islands boasting luxurious private islands, all-inclusive resorts, world-renowned spas, outdoor explorations, scuba diving, sailing and marine activities, and a wide array of culinary adventures. Fiji is most widely celebrated for its culture, which uniquely welcomes its visitors “home to Fiji.” Fiji – where happiness finds you – www.fiji.travel.
