When traveling to far off destinations it's important to plan your itinerary in advance to ensure that you are able to make the most of your time and see everything on your list.

Don't have a list yet? We can help with that!

Here are some of our top picks for Fiji activities:

#1 Explore Nature

Fiji is a nature lover’s Eden. Adrift in the splendid isolation of the blue waters of the South Pacific, the islands have escaped the ravages of the western world.

Fiji has more than three hundred species of native orchids, as well as hundreds of varieties that have been imported from places around the world.

Inside the many tropical forest reserves, you can walk surrounded with the scent of wild frangipani. The islands are Nature’s playgrounds, teeming with jabbering parrots that swoop through treetops and rare turtles that nest along the beaches.

Two of our nature favorite are Kula Eco Park and The Garden of the Sleeping Giant - both must sees while in Fiji.

#2 Spend the Afternoon at Cloud 9

Located just off the Mamanuca Islands in calm turquoise waters is a floating fully stocked bar and Italian wood-fired pizzeria floating paradise and picturesque views.

Spend the afternoon lounging in the sun, sipping cocktails, munching on delicious pizza and enjoying complete and utter relaxation. The views, the service and the overall experience cannot be beat!

Fiji is home to some of the most beautiful and untouched waterfalls that you do not want to miss! One of our favorites is located in Taveuni, which is located off Vanua Levu’s east coast, and is called the Tavoro waterfall. Accessible via a easily walkable grassy trail is a spectacular a 60-foot waterfall that flows down into a sparkling emerald pool.
