Water Sports in Fiji

Discover Fiji’s marine playground

The spectacular coastline and pristine waters around Fiji are an attraction within themselves. From the sandy beaches, turquoise lagoons and exotic reefs to the tropical mangroves and luscious environment around the Sigatoka River, it’s no wonder water lovers flock to Fiji to take advantage of the gorgeous waters! Water sports abound in Fiji too. Most of the My Fiji resorts are located on or near the waterfront and offer a range of water sport equipment for guests to utilise or hire such as stand up paddleboards, kayaks and snorkelling gear. If you don’t want to use or hire the equipment available at your resort you can visit the range of private water sport suppliers all along the coasts of Fiji.

A water sport for every traveller

Whether you’re totally new to the world of water sports or you’re an enthusiast looking for a new challenge, Fiji has a water sport for you. For the challenge chasers test yourself with wind surfing or kite surfing. Best experienced on the Coral Coast or north of Fiji’s mainland around Namotu and Taveuni Islands, wind and kite surfing in Fiji is an experience like no other. The strong, consistent winds combined with the shallow flat waters around Fiji’s islands create the perfect conditions for wind and kite surfing. For a real challenge, head outside of the reef and around the uninhabited islands for a more difficult ride. Get your heart-pumping with a high-speed jet ski experience. Both novices and pros can jump aboard a jet ski and explore Fiji’s islands. There are many tour operators all along the coastline of Fiji that can take you out of a guided jet ski safari or if you’d prefer, hire a jet ski and thrash through the azure waters on your own. Fly at new heights and experience the newest adrenaline water sport, flyboarding. You can sign up for this exhilarating experience from the reception of Shangri-La Fijian Resort & Spa or by contacting one of the certified flyboard instructors across Fiji. Prefer a more relaxing approach to water sports? Stay afloat and paddle along the surface of the waters in a kayak. Most of the My Fiji resorts have kayaks available for guests to utilise or hire. Cruise along the waters bordering your resort or opt for a guided kayaking tour. Sea kayaking adventures are a great water to discover the fascinating marine life from atop. Observe the vibrant corals and watch the exotic fish species swim around below you. Kayaking experiences aren’t limited to the ocean either. Take a kayaking adventure through Fiji’s various rivers and discover local villages and stunning scenery amongst the luscious greenery of Fiji’s highlands. Take in the picturesque views of Fiji from a birds eye view as you parasail in the air. Soar above Denarau Island and see as far as the Mamanuca Island chain with this peaceful yet heart racing experience. Indulge in the art of island hopping and opt for a cruise or sailing tour. Cruising and sailing are the best ways to discover the islands of Fiji in pure luxury and relaxation. There are a range of cruise and sail tours that depart from all over Fiji including Denarau and the Coral Coast. Some take you through the Yasawa Island group for a multi-day tour while others include day cruises to the most sought after destinations in Fiji. If you’re a keen skipper, you might prefer to hire a boat and head out on the water without the tour services.

These aren’t the only water sports you can take advantage of in Fiji either. Discover the marine life with snorkelling or diving, hit the Fijian waves for a world renowned surfing experience or throw a line in and try your luck fishing!
