If you're looking for a beautiful, 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 Road, 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.

Energetic travelers will love the Coral Coast for its athletic offerings, such as Ecotrax, which offers rail-mounted push carriages that take visitors through lush Fijian landscapes. Visitors can also immerse themselves in Fijian culture for a day with the Fiji Heritage and Culture tour which takes visitors to places such as a pottery village and Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park.

#2 The Yasawas

This chain of 20 islands garners attention for its lush landscapes, striking volcanic peaks, sparkling blue lagoons and ever-present sunshine. The Yasawa 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 meet a manta ray on Nanuya Balavu or Drawaqa. To get around, you can hire a seaplane from Nadi or a ferry from Denarau Port. Trips to the Yasawas take about 30 minutes via seaplane and several hours via boat (depending on the island you visit). Many of the companies offer transit services from Port Denarau directly to resorts, which makes it easy to stay in the Yasawas for a few days. Prices vary depending on transit company. Prices vary depending on transit company, but you should expect to spend around FJ$400 (around $186) per person one-way for a seaplane. If you choose to take a ferry, be prepared to spend several hours on the water to get to the Yasawas when coming from Port Denarau and to spend around FJ$200 (or about $93) for a one-way ticket. If you can't decide which island to visit, purchase a Bula Pass from Awesome Adventures Fiji to island hop. For more information, visit the tourism website.
