It is situated some 1,100 nautical miles northeast of North Island, New Zealand. Fiji is comprised of over 332 islands, with 110 permanently inhabited, and over 500 islets. It has a total land area of about 18,300 square kilometres. The two major islands are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. The former contains the capital and largest city, Suva. 

Fiji is a well-known tourist destination, with its most popular areas being Nadi, Denarau Island, the Coral Coast, and the Mamanuca Islands. The most notable attractions in Fiji are its white sandy beaches and its abundant soft coral reefs.

 

What to see & do

Mamanuca Islands - Mamanuca Islands are a volcanic archipelago situated to the west of Nadi and south of the Yasawa Islands. There are about 20 islands, seven of which are submerged into the Pacific Ocean at high tide. The islands have palm-fringed sandy coastlines and are surrounded by clear waters. The island of Monuriki was the main location for the film Cast Away (2000). Accommodations in the island range from high-end to budget.

Garden of the Sleeping Giant - The garden is originally a private collection of the late American actor Raymond Burr. The gardens cover 20 hectares next to Burr's house, filled with native Fiji orchids and other exotic flowers and plants, as well as a lily pond. Today, it is a wonderful tourist attraction located on the Wailoko Road. 

Scuba Diving in Fiji - Fiji is best known for offering truly magical diving experiences. Among its popular dive sites are Gotham City, Namotu Wall, Castaway Passage, Barrel Head, The Supermarket, Salamanda Shipwreck, and Tui's Reef. Divers of all levels are welcome, and diving lessons are offered for beginners. 

 

How to get around within Fiji

Local transportation in Fiji is quite cheap, with buses, shared taxis, and private taxis as the primary options. Not all the taxis are equipped with a meter, but if you do happen to chance upon one then ask the driver to turn the meter on. Otherwise, negotiate the fare beforehand. The roads are not in as good shape as most tourists are used to, due to potholes and dilapidated bridges. Renting a car and driving on your own is not advised, especially if you're not used to driving on such harsh roads. Taking the bus is perhaps the safest choice. It is possible to get hop-on hop-off bus passes that allow you to tour the island at your own pace for a fixed price. 

Fiji is also the ideal place for a rugged bike tour. While cycling can be a wonderful experience and a way to also get some work out, make sure you carry your own spares and supplies as there aren't many bike shops around. Also do not forget to bring plenty of water. Renting a motorbike is also possible, and can even be delivered to you at the airport as soon as you arrive. You will need to present your motorbike license.
