For the out and out aqua kid or those who get pumped up by the tropical fantasies, Fiji is one luxury destination that can never be given a miss. What’s more? Fiji leaves you spoilt for choice with 333 islands to choose from. Some of the most frequented and revered names that come in our mind are the Mamanucas and Yasawas as they literally glide with your budget and the idea of having a luxury hideaway and rustic eco resorts for family. As international gateways one cannot help but set their eyes on the rather picture-perfect tourist town of Nadi, on Viti Levu that have become an international gateways of sorts because of the pristine beaches spread across miles. More of the luxury travel in Fiji follows in the areas of Denarau Island and the ever popular Coral Coast.
You do not have to tread or fly too far to find a Fijian paradise that you can truly call as your own. The luxuriantly green and rain-drenched islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni still hold good without the massive tourist footfalls with hiking trails, waterfalls, and flower-flecked jungles. On the other end there is Kadavu, the unspoiled beauty and the planet’s fourth largest barrier reef that qualifies as the diver’s paradise. Mark the words. All the fiji holiday destinations have something for every bit of a wanderlust to look forward to.
