Best Things To Do in Fiji

Fiji lures visitors with its aquamarine waters and soft, warm sands that you'll find right outside the doors of your resort. In this setting, you can snorkel with manta rays in the Yasawas, scuba dive near Taveuni, or party in the Mamanucas. But if you prefer something a bit tamer, you can visit a history museum or stop to smell the orchids at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. With so much to do, don't forget to lay back and relax—it's not every day that you're in Fiji.

If you're looking for a good, central place to stay and enjoy the beach, the Coral Coast is a good bet. You'll find it on the southwest side of Viti Levu. Along its pearly white sands, you'll spot resorts and hotels galore. But even if you're not staying at one of these, you can access the shoreline from Queens Highway, which runs between Nadi and Suva. Be sure to bring water, snacks, and sunscreen with you, especially if you're not staying in one of the adjacent properties. For more information, visit the website.

This chain of 20 islands garners attention for its lush landscapes, striking volcanic peaks, sparkling blue lagoons, and ever-present sunshine. The Yasawas Islands are also known as the great granddaddy of the Mamanucas in both breadth and magnitude. Here, the number of things to do is infinite. You can work up a sweat hiking along Waya island, or, for something less exhausting, try laying out on Oarsman's Bay beach on Nacula, or if you want to cool off, head to the Blue Lagoon on Nanuya Lailai island. To get around, you can hire a seaplane from Nadi or a ferry from Denarau Port. For more information, visit the tourism website.

When you think of Taveuni, you should picture snorkeling and scuba diving. The coral reefs are unbelievable gorgeous and diverse. There's the Rainbow Reef and the Vuna Reef to get you started. But if underwater exploration isn't really your thing, you can be shocked and awed on dry land too. Several hikes like the Lavena Coastal Walk (which terminates at a waterfall pool) and the Vidawa Rainforest Trail will afford you beautiful vistas. Taveuni's many hiking trails will also help you burn off some of the calories from the Fiji Bitter beer and profuse resort food. You can hitch a ride to Taveuni by plane or boat from Viti Levu (to learn more, check out our guide to Getting Around Fiji). For more information, visit the tourism website.

Vilavilairevo, Fijian for "jumping into the oven," is the practice of firewalking. And it's not just the stroll across fire that's amazing; rather, it's the walking on fire without getting burned that's astonishing. It's said that the practice originated with the people of Beqa Island, who convinced Tui Namoliwai, a spirit god, to allow the Beqa people to forever have the ability to walk on scalding stones. Today, you can watch firewalking ceremonies at resorts throughout Fiji, but you can bet that the men doing it grew up in Beqa. Many resorts, like Outrigger on the Lagoon, offer regular firewalking shows.

Port Denarau is located on Fiji's Denarau Island, which is connected to Viti Levu by bridge and is just a 20-minute drive from Nadi International Airport (NAN). Of course, you can hop on a boat and sail to other islands—like the Mamanucas—from this port. But you can also stay on dry land and enjoy the hotels, restaurants, and shopping at the about 32,800-square-foot Retail and Commercial Centre. There's also an 18-hole golf course and opportunities for watersports like jet-boating.

The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is located in the foothills of the Nausori Highlands. The highlight here is the garden's collection of vibrant orchids. First planted in 1977 by the Canadian TV actor Raymond Burr, the orchids have thrived in Fiji's tropical climate. Another must-do is the "jungle walk," which wanders past a lily pond and through a native rainforest.
