If you like the beach and you are one of the tourists who do not conceive of a vacation that is not by the sea, with sun and sand, then did you try the Fiji Islands? Yes, they are not around the corner, but the trip is well worth it.
The islands make up an island republic and are in Oceania, they are about the size of Slovenia, and as you will see in this post and in the accompanying photographs, they are hard to forget. Jungles, turquoise sea, heat, corals, white sand mangroves, and luxury hotels but also for backpackers. To travel!
Fiji is basically composed of two main islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, and some other smaller islands such as Koro, Kadavu, Gau, and Taveuni. In general, it is volcanic islands, and if we are more specific in its location on the globe, we will say that they are islands that belong to the group of those of Melanesia and that are located near Tonga and Vanuatu.
They are mountainous islands, with peaks of more than 900 meters of altitude and some fertile plains. They also have mangroves, forests, underwater coral reefs, and rich flora and fauna. Everything proliferates thanks to the humid climate that reigns, although the heat is nothing excessive. The coolest months are from May to November with temperatures between 19 and 29 ºC and between December and April, it calculates between 22 and 33 ºC.
It is convenient to go to Fiji holiday destinations far from the rainy season, between June to October. Just in the European summer! We must take advantage! Any more information? In other words, the islands are free of malaria, yellow fever, or other tropical diseases. Lucky! On the other hand here people are of modest and traditional dress, so not so much in hotels but if you travel to a village try to be demure.
Things not to Miss in Fiji
You will enter Fiji through the Nadi airport in the city of the same name located on the west coast of the island of Viti Levu. There are many hotels here, and you can schedule the rest of your trip after touring it.
Many tourists usually jump to Denarau Island, located in front of the coast, a complete resort island that is linked to the main island by a short embankment. Between Nadi and Denarau, there are barely 10 kilometers, and the island contains nothing more and nothing less than eight huge resorts, beautiful beaches, and even an 18-hole golf course.
Pools, international quality restaurants, shops, nature tours, and everything a tourist wants to relax. You can arrive by taxi or take advantage of the hotel’s transport service, and it is from here that you can also jump to the Mamanuca or Yasawa Islands with cruises and ferries that work every day.
The Mamanuca Islands are the closest island group to Nadi Airport and are the best postcard in Fiji: turquoise waters, white beaches, palm trees with coconuts. If you like water sports, it is a good place too and the same if your thing is diving and snorkeling. There are all kinds of accommodations at honeymoon destinations in Fiji, from lodges to backpackers’ sites that just want to surf.
