I experienced my first trip to Fiji when I was just a very young impressionable 9 year old with my Mom on my first of many trips to Australia. It was my Mom's first time back in over 12 years to visit all of her family. I was so blessed to be able to join her and what an adventure!
Fiji offers a wonderfully exotic experience with limitless captivating beauty and a natural allure. You can be as busy as you'd like with an endless supply of adventures or just soak it all in with the laidback mentality that you'd expect in such a wonderful location in the South Pacific.
Fiji is actually an archipelago of more than 300 islands and the following are some of the best things to do, see, and experience in Fiji…
Take the Ecotrax
A world's first in Fiji, with electric assisted bikes that take you on the old sugar cane tram line along the Coral Coast to enjoy the island's wilderness and beautiful coastline.
Beach it on the Coral Coast
The magnificent Coral Coast has one of the most charming beaches you can visit while in Fiji. It has some of the softest, whitest sand and of course, crystal blue waters.
Enjoy the Yasawas
There's so much to enjoy in The Yasawas including hiking, beaching, enjoying and appreciating the blue lagoons, volcanoes, beautiful greenery and you can even meet manta rays and take a seaplane. It's composed of 20 islands that could keep you busy for many days.
Snorkeling and Surfing in the Mamanucas
The Mamanucas is also comprised of approximately 20 islands and is home to some of the most stunning scenery in Fiji. It's amidst the volcanic archipelago and snorkeling and surfing are very popular here.
Admire the Coral Reefs of Taveuni
Taveuni is Fiji's third largest island and has the most diverse coral reefs, including the Rainbow Reef. The Vidawa Rainforest Trail and National Heritage Park are well worth a visit as well.
Thrill Over the Firewalking Ceremony
In Fiji, the native Bega men partake in these ceremonies proving that with the right mindset one has the ability to walk across scalding hot stones without getting burned. It's likely no coincidence, but Tony Robbins actually has UPW Live attendees actually take part in their own firewalking experience. At the virtual one that I attended, we broke boards with our hands instead with that same mindset.
Visit the Fiji Museum
The Fiji Museum showcases the 3700 year old history of Fijian culture with a spectacular overview including everything from their Indian artwork to their shell jewelry.
Shop and Play at Port Denarau Marina
Port Denarau Marina is Fiji's premier marina facility. It features a 32,800-square-foot Retail and Commerce Centre filled with restaurants and shopping. There's even an 18-hole golf course and jetboat available for added fun.
Delight in the Garden of the Sleeping Giant
Interestingly, this beautiful garden was started by Raymond Burr in 1977 and is situated in the foothills of the Nausori Highlands. He started it to showcase his orchid collection that features more than 2,000 colorful plants. You can walk through this garden completely enthralled for hours.
Experience the Mud Pool Tour
Check out the therapeutic natural thermal mud spa that claims to have both healing properties and age-defying effects.
Have Fun at the Kula Wild Adventure Park
This is Fiji's biggest family theme park perfect for the young and young at heart to enjoy. You can ride on the Splash Mountain Jungle Water Slide, glide on the canopy flier, and carefully examine and feed various exotic species of animals including sea turtles.
Appreciate Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple
This historic Hindu temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan and is exceptionally vibrant and colorful. It has delicate architectural details and magnificent ornate carvings and is well worth visiting.
As you can see, there is a lot to experience in the stunning country of Fiji. When you're ready to start planning your trip to these archipelago islands let me know and I'd be happy to work with you!
