Catch a ferry from Port Denarau and zip over to the Mamanucas. This set of roughly 20 islands offers travelers everything from a secluded resort on Navini Island to bumping bars on Mana or Beachcomber islands.

The Mamanucas are also known for their breathtaking beauty. In fact, they've served as the setting for the Tom Hanks film, "Cast Away," and the "Survivor: Edge of Extinction"season. Along with the spectacular scenery, travelers also appreciated all the water sports activities available in the Mamanucas waters; you can do everything from snorkel to dive to surf. Ferries are available from a few different companies; trip lengths and prices vary depending on which specific Mamanuca Island you visit. However, you can expect to spend at most two hours to get to a Mamanuca Island and pay at least $FJ169 (approximately $78) for a day cruise which will depart and return to Port Denarau on the same day. You can learn more about the Mamanucas here.

#1 Coral Coast

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.
