Destinations – Fiji
Happiness is discovering Fiji!
Fiji consists of over 333 islands covering 194,000 sq. kilometres in the South Pacific Ocean. Only just over 100 of these islands are inhabited, but that’s still a lot of destinations to choose from when planning your next visit! At My Fiji, we highly recommend multiple visits, but we know that’s not always an option. Our list of key Fiji destinations will help you decide where to travel on your next Fiji holiday, based on scenery, nearby tours and exclusive experiences. We can guarantee that you’ll be Fiji Happy no matter which of them you pick!
The islands of Fiji perfectly represent the essence of paradise. There are well over 200 locally managed marine parks, plenty of well-kept botanical gardens, thick tropical rainforests, palm tree-lined beaches and smiling faces to meet you amongst all of it! Slow your pace right down to “island time” and enjoy just being in the moment. Take the family on guided snorkelling or diving trips and witness vibrant corals, spinner dolphins and up to 5 of the world’s 7 turtle species. If golf is your thing, there are courses near the main-island hubs, plus there are a range of spa and cultural activities at, or near, the resorts.
Hikers can discover unique birds, mammals, reptiles and native plants as they explore crisp pools and waterfalls off mountain tracks, plus there are many villages to visit if you’re wanting to gain invaluable insight into traditional Fijian life! Whether you want a laid-back holiday or one that is packed to the brim, there is a destination in Fiji that will be ideal for you!

The exotic Mamanuca Islands are located off the west coast of Viti Levu. There are more than 20 islands which make up the group and they are visible when you stand on the Nadi coast! Travel to the Mamanuca Islands can take between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. This depends on your service and destination (modes of transport include boat, seaplane and helicopter). The Mamanucas are well known for their white sandy beaches, water sports and incredible dive spots. To enjoy them, stay at Tokoriki Island Resort, Plantation Island Resort and more!
The Coral Coast is the ideal destination for guests looking to glimpse traditional village life while enjoying the full resort experience. Stretching 80km along the southwest coast of Viti Levu, the Coral Coast consists of stunning bays, beaches and a large fringing reef. It is a great family friendly destination and takes between 1-2 hours to reach from Nadi International Airport. Stay at the Warwick Fiji, Fiji Hideaway Resort & Spa, the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort to name just a few! Go on tours, snorkelling or try out bargaining at the Sigatoka Market!
Denarau Island is a unique destination located on the main island Viti Levu, less than 10km from Nadi. It’s not a natural island—it was developed as a resort hub in the 1960s and, today, it is the largest of its kind in the South Pacific. Denarau boasts 8 large resorts, beaches, the 18-hole championship Denarau Golf & Racquet Club and the Port Denarau marina. Stay amongst lush tropical gardens in 5-star luxury. Some of the resorts you can choose from include the Sheraton Fiji Resort, the Westin Denarau Island Resort and the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa.
Nadi is a bustling, multicultural town home to the Nadi International Airport. Originally developed in 1947 as a Government Station, the town became a tourist centre in the 1960s. It’s now one of Fiji’s main hubs for international travellers and people either start or end their Fiji holidays there! Shop, eat and drink in Nadi. Browse book, jewellery and souvenir stores and choose between traditional Fijian, Indian, Chinese or Western cuisines. You can access a range of tours and activities from Nadi too—the town is close to Denarau, the Yasawas and the Mamanucas!
Momi Bay is located on the southwest coast of Vitu Levu, between Nadi and the Coral Coast. The area is considered to be one of Viti Levu’s most untouched areas and, with rolling green hills, pristine reefs and startling clear waters, there’s no denying it’s true! The journey to Momi Bay is simple. A 45 minute direct drive will get you there from Nadi International Airport (it’s approximately 35km away). Drive past pine plantations, sugar-cane fields and farmland to get a true sense of how the locals in the area live before arriving at the stunning Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay!
The Yasawa Islands are located to the north of the Mamanuca Islands. They consist of 16 islands (more rugged than their southern neighbours) and stretch for 90km. The Yasawa Islands were formed by volcanoes and feature dramatic, grass-covered mountains and beautiful white beaches. There aren’t any shops or banks there—natural beauty is what draws tourists to these islands as does the unique chance to enjoy a complete break from civilisation! Hike, snorkel, dive, fish or swim. Get there with a Blue Lagoon or Captain Cook Cruise!
Beqa Lagoon is on Beqa Island, just 30 minutes by boat from Viti Levu’s mainland. The lagoon is the perfect location for avid divers and snorkelers—one of the world’s largest barrier reefs surrounds the island, boasting a range of Fiji’s incredible, unique marine life! The Lalati Resort & Spa is located here and offers the ultimate romantic island getaway. Enjoy swimming in the clear waters of Maluma Bay and feel at one with remarkably green tropical vegetation. There are few roads here and villages are scattered—the makings of the perfect island escape!
Suva is the capital of Fiji. It is the largest city in Oceania and is also one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the region too! Suva became the capital of Fiji in 1882 when the British moved there and cleared the land. Prior to this it was the site of an 11-year war between powerful chiefs in the area. Today Suva is a bustling, multicultural hub. It has shopping malls, restaurants, a range of entertainment options and a vibrant nightlife scene. Enjoy wandering the gardens, markets and museums in the city or take the continuous bus to Nadi, running 7 days a week!
