Five Must-Do Fiji Activities
Fiji is an island of crystal clear water, white sand and palm trees, sunshine and beautiful weather. It’s no surprise that a place like this is one of the most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations.
How can you make the most out of your romantic Fiji vacation?
1. Stay in an overwater bure
When people think of over water accommodation, places like Bora Bora and the Maldives spring to mind. These exist in Fiji, too, where they’re called overwater bures.
Bures simply means wood and straw hut in Fijian, but the over water bures at Likuliku are sheer luxury. While a traditional bure would have no amenities, Likuliku has the only over-water bungalows in Fiji, complete with inset glass floors, so you can view the spectacular marine life from the comfort of your room.
2. Soak up the Fijian culture
It’s not a Fiji holiday without participating in a kava ceremony. You gather in a circle on traditional mats and drink kava, a natural root plant only found in the South Pacific. Kava is supposed to have a mild sedative, calming effect.
Fijian fire walking is a spectacle you’ll want to see. The legend goes that the warriors and men of Beqa island were given a special gift over 500 years ago, from an eel who was trapped, and exchanged this gift for its life: the ability to walk on fire without being burned.
3. Indulge in a luxurious spa treatment
A vacation just isn’t a real vacation without an indulgent massage or spa treatment.
Namale Resort & Spa is an adults only, all inclusive retreat, that caters for a maximum of 40 guests at one time. With the exclusive numbers, and set on 525 acres of rainforest, it’s the ultimate in privacy and seclusion.
The Namale Spa and Sanctuary is a 10,000 square foot spa featuring treatments form around the world including Japan, India, Bali, Fiji and Sweden, and the only hydro-therapy room of its kind in this part of the world.
4. Have an adventure!
No matter what your idea of adventure is, there’s something to satisfy it in Fiji. You can surf in famous areas like Cloudbreak, one of the most consistent surf spots in the world, you can waterski or wakeboard, or even charter a catamaran if you’re an experienced sailor.
If solid ground is more your adventure style, you can do a 4X4 offroad cave safari or a strenuous hike through the rainforest. There’s also a range of helicopter tours and sea plane adventures, or ziplining through the rainforests, for those who like being in the air.
5. Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
Jean-Michele Cousteau, the renowned scuba expert and son of Jacques Cousteau, called Fiji the “Soft Coral Capital of the World”.
Among your choice of Fiji Resorts is the Jean-Michele Cousteau Resort. Lovers of marine life, snorkeling and scuba will enjoy this resort with its onsite marine biologist. Coaustea oversees the diving operations and is often on tours with the guests.
