Fiji - the quintessential South Pacific paradise is an archipelago of more than 330 islands. Surrounded by New Zealand to the south and Australia to the west, Fiji is famous for its heavenly tropical islands and friendly people. With over 100 inhabited islands, every traveller can find their own version of luxury, adventure and romance on this exotic tropical paradise.
This beautiful and inviting vacation destination is home to scenic wonders, both man-made and natural. Everywhere you turn, the Fiji islands have something colourful to make you smile. Fiji flaunts all the feel-good colours - whether its myriad greens in the landscapes, bright oranges of ripe mangos or yellows of the palm trees.
Brilliant for families, luxury travellers, backpackers and honeymooners, Fiji is a destination that has something for everyone.
One of the most visitors’ first stop on Fiji, Nadi is Fiji’s third-largest city. This perfect South Pacific stopover city is a gateway to world-class resorts. While in Nadi, travellers should definitely visit Nadi Beach (perfect for watching sunsets and lazing in the sun), the Sleeping Giant orchid gardens, Sri Siva Subramaniya temple and Waqadra Botanical Gardens.
The Yasawa Islands are full of postcard-perfect beaches and small resorts. Almost 20 volcanic islands make up the group, each catering to those who are looking for tropical serenity, snorkelling, and hiking. Yasawa Islands are home to the ancient limestone cave formations - Sawailau Caves.
Known as Fiji’s ‘mainland’, Viti Levu is home to 70% of the Fijian population. Viti Levu is a beauty spot in its own right and travellers can easily spend an entire holiday exploring its beaches, mountains, and dunes.
The Mamanucas islands are less than a 10-minute helicopter away from Nadi. A single visit to these islands will make you feel like you are on your own paradise. Surfers should definitely visit ‘Cloudbreak’. These islands are well-known for the famous movie “Castaway”, which was filmed here.
The flight is the best way to travel to Fiji from India. Nadi International Airport connects all the countries around the world to Fiji. Being far away, you will have to take connecting flights to get there. In such cases, the stopover destination specified by the airline will determine the flight time.
Fiji is a perfect destination for a relaxing beachside vacation, and its warm tropical climate has made it a traveller-friendly place. The temperature here seldom rises above 31 °C. Usually, July to September is the best time to visit Fiji. However, those who are not a fan of huge crowds can visit this tropical paradise between October to November.
While the packing checklist may seem overwhelming to travellers, there are a couple of items which you definitely need to pack while travelling to Fiji:
A wealth of fresh produce and the creativity of Fijian cooking has resulted in a truly fascinating and diverse cuisine here. Some of the famous Fijian delicacies include:
The absolute favourite Fijian dish is, of course, Kokoda. For fans of sushi or sashimi, Kokoda is a must-try delicacy. Kokoda is simply a marinated raw fish served in a fresh coconut milk concoction which is enhanced with onions, tomatoes, raw cucumbers, and a dash of peppers. You can eat this healthy dish along with the main course, or just with bread for breakfast.
Lovo simply means “feast cooked in the earth”. This popular celebratory meal is cooked in an underground furnace. For a lovo, lamb, vegetables, fish, and different local delicacies are marinated, wrapped together in banana leaves and left for 2-3 hours to cook.
Palusami is assembled using boiled fresh taro leaves, which are mashed into a creamy vegetable curry. In the non-vegetarian version, fresh meat or seafood is added to it while cooking. Finally, the dish is garnished with coconut cream.
Topoi - the famous vegetarian dumpling snack - can be found in any authentic Fijian restaurant. Topois are served sliced with lots of butter, and you can eat them for breakfast with tea.
From unconventional products to traditional island-style products, it’s not hard to bring a little piece of the Fiji islands back home. With these famous souvenirs from Fiji, you can continue the island vibes year-round:
These carved masks which depict legendary creatures or local deities should be the must-buy item on your shopping list. The Mako masks represent strength, prosperity and happiness and have colourful highlights painted over the carving. Mako masks make for an impressive gift.
Black pearls, which are mainly farmed in Tahiti, are also available in Fiji. You will find chocolate brown and black pearls sold as rings, bracelets and necklaces here. In Savusavu, travellers can go for snorkel tours of the pearl farms, where they can purchase different grades of pearls.
Tapa cloth also called as masi cloth, is a cloth which is stamped or stencilled with ancient symbols. Made from the milled bark of the paper mulberry tree, tapa cloth makes for authentic wall hangings. Travellers can also purchase tapa cloth picture frames, boxes, and even handbags.
