Fiji Islands Vacation Travel

More About Fiji Islands - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
The over 300 islands in the South Pacific known as Fiji boast a true tropical climate, with both a wet and a dry season. Rainfall and the occasional hurricane occur between November and April. Most resorts are on the Western side of Vitu Levu, the area with the least amount of rainfall. For ideal conditions, plan your visit to Fiji between May and October.

Where to stay?
Most tourists prefer the resorts and B&Bs along the Coral Coast - for that idealized barefoot beach vacation. It is easy to find 5-star as well as shoestring accommodations throughout Fiji. Viti and Vanua Levus are havens for travelers in search of bungalows with butlers - or even your own private island. On the opposite end of the spending spectrum, backpackers will find plenty of rest plus meal plans at the home-stays or lodges in Taveuni and Nadi. For a less touristy experience, stay on one of the smaller islands (not Vitu Levu).

What to do?
Beyond lazing about the white-sand beaches, take to the lagoons of Fiji for some intimate underwater snorkeling. The lush, mountainous Nadi area offers great biking, hiking and horseback riding. Divers flock to the Astrolabe Reef, near Kadavu, and world-class surfers revere Tavarua. Non-naturalists can play golf at one of Vitu Levu six courses, opt for some tennis or boating, or get their shopping fix in Suva. One evening, be sure to take part in a meke, traditional Fijian dancing and feasting.
