Luxury Activities for 2 on Fiji’s Coral Coast
Picture this: cocktails in hand, looking out over a summer-loving paradise with your SO (or best travel buddy) by your side. Fiji is already the perfect destination for 2, but on the main island of Vitu Levu there’s an 80-kilometre stretch of holiday hotspots between Sigatoka and Suva that outshine the rest. The Coral Coast should definitely be high on your list of things to do in Fiji—whether you’re craving the coast or dreaming of inland adventures and cultural experiences, we’ve got your luxury holiday for 2 sorted!
The warm, tropical waters of the Coral Coast are perfect for playtime, whether you choose to go over or under. Some of the best snorkelling can be found at Beqa Lagoon, an extinct volcanic crater teeming with vibrant marine life. Or go further with PADI-certified dive instructors and a trip out to one of the reefs to swim with sea turtles (or sharks, if you dare!). Explore the underwater world side-by-side or check it out from above with a Sigatoka River Safari. Start out with a breathtaking jet-boat ride down Fiji’s longest river, and finish with a village tour.
The coast is truly magical, but the real drawcard of the area is the sheer number of activities and experiences to be had. Zip Fiji in Pacific harbour is perfect for the thrill-seeking twosome. See the lush rainforest canopy with style and speed, taking in stunning views over Wainadoi Valley as you fly for almost 2-kilometres over 8 lines. One of the super-friendly, highly-trained guides will take a snap or vid of your adrenaline hit for a postcard-perfect memory. Or if you prefer to pace out your action, try your hand at The Pearl’s championship 18-hole golf course, nested amongst rainforest and winding canals.
GET INTO THE SPIRIT
The real face of Fiji isn’t far from the surface on the Coral Coast. Opt for a village tour to meet the locals and get the goods on daily Fijian life, or get acquainted with a different kind of local at Kula Wild Adventure Park, Fiji’s only wildlife sanctuary. Stroll the boardwalks and cuddle with a rare Fijian iguana, or brave the boa constrictor! Hand-feed baby sea turtles for that insta-perfect moment, or chill out with the dazzling array of exotic birds in large, walk-through aviaries.
For a history kick you and your plus-one won’t forget, lace up your hiking boots and venture into one of Fiji’s greatest natural highlights, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park. Apart from the uniquely gorgeous landscapes created by windblown lines of rippling sand, there are archaeological sites exposed on the costal margins that date back almost 3000 years. If nothing else, the adventure is sure to spark some interesting conversations, with plenty food for thought and natural beauty to soothe the soul.
At the end of the day, the most popular activity on the Coral Coast isn’t an activity at all. Kick back on a sun lounge, make the most of the swim-up bar and spa, and soak up some of those island vibes—you’ve earned it! See and do as much or as little as you like when you base yourself at one of the prime Fiji resorts, like the super-luxurious Pearl South Pacific, perfectly placed on the rim of the idyllic Beqa Lagoon.
