Fiji and its 300 or so Islands are the paradise you are looking for. Flying into Nadi Airport you can explore mainland Fiji, The Coral Coast and best of all get out to do some Island Hopping.
Things to Do
One of the incredibly stunning regions of Fiji is the Yasawa Islands. They consist of a chain of 20 ancient volcanic islands four of which have dramatic elevations above the fringing coral reefs. There are pristine white sandy beaches surrounded by clear lagoons that provide a wonderful playground for activities like diving, snorkelling, trekking, kayaking, or swimming with manta rays!!
With our mates at Awesome Adventures you can hop from island to island enjoying what they have to offer and also exploring local villages to meet the locals. The original adventure travel company of the Yasawas, Awesome adventures have a variety of plans that help you to get along the chain with the time and budget that suits. From romantic luxury to locally owned lodges they will help you enjoy the most important thing of all - relaxing in the tropics!
The water in Fiji is incredible. Beaches where you can walk straight into an underwater paradise of coral reef and clear blue water teeming with life. Reef sharks galore (the friendly kind) as well as some great diving for those with a little more experience. There are places to become a certified diver and do your open water diving course. There is also the famous snorkelling with manta rays or even volunteer to be a part of the marine conservation effort with Vanaka Volunteering.
Now this is a must! You're on Fiji time so you just have to slow down. Lie in the hammock, relax on the beach and enjoy a cocktail at sunset. You are in Fiji relaxation-mode so you just have to treat yourself to a luxurious island massage at some point. Many resorts offer massages on the sand under palm trees. It really is one of the most relaxed places on the planet so put your feet up and enjoy!
For anyone who can give some time and effort, you can really dig in and make a difference. Run by the Vinaka Fiji Yasawa Trust Foundation, the experiences have been developed to help the people of the Yasawa Islands achieve access to the basic necessities of life. This includes helping them secure water, power, education and health care. There is also a focus on marine conservation.
