Fiji Holidays

Sling a hammock between swaying coconut palms, snorkel across a coral lagoon, voyage to distant reefs and islands, visit local villages and hike into the jungle… this South Pacific poster pin-up promises big rewards for those in search of adventure, culture and relaxation.

Ideal as a stop-over or extension to your holiday in Australasia, you’ll arrive in Nadi on the main island of Viti Levu. Many people use this as a springboard for exploring smaller, more remote spots, such as the lush ‘Garden Island’ of Taveuni, which is ideal for hikers and birdwatchers while the Mamanuca Islands and Yasawa Islands are known for sublime beaches, spectacular reefs and idyllic resorts. Wherever you choose to visit in Fiji, you can be assured of a warm and friendly "Bula" (welcome).

The Best Time to Visit Fiji

The tropical climate in Fiji promises warm weather and sunshine at any time of year, but the most comfortable period is during the dry season from May to October when it’s slightly cooler and less humid. Fiji’s wet season, November to April, is hotter with frequent heavy rainfall – although this usually just falls in short sharp bursts in the afternoons.

The average temperature in Fiji is around 25ºC, but it can climb to above 30ºC during the wet of summer and drop to below 20ºC in winter, the dry season.

The islands are typically at their busiest during the peak months from June to September, although the months of December and January can still be busy due to the popularity of the islands with holidaymakers from Australia and New Zealand.

If you do one thing in winter: Dive!

Fiji is famous for its sea life and array of colourful coral. The Great Astrolabe Reef is the world’s fourth-largest barrier reef and wraps around the remote southern island of Kadavu. Somosomo Strait between the northern islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni, meanwhile, is famous for its stunning soft corals. Explore underwater dive sites with whimsical names like Chimneys and Alice in Wonderland, with its mushroom-shaped corals, sea fans and clown fish.

If you do one thing in summer: Explore Fiji’s Caves

Get a glimpse into Fiji’s past with Sigatoka River Safaris. Wade through knee-deep water by hurricane lantern through Naihehe Cave, Fiji’s largest cave system. Deep inside the 170-metre cave remains a gruesome reminder of Fiji’s cannibal past – a cannibal oven, a ritual platform and the sacred priest chamber.

Small Ship Cruising in Fiji

As an alterative to a resort stay, consider exploring Fiji’s sheltered bays and picturesque tropical islands on a cruise. Spend four or seven days aboard the 130-passenger Reef Endeavour cruising through beautiful islands and colourful coral reef, uncovering the region’s unique history, art and culture.

Combine ashore delving into Fijian culture and history, with plenty of time cruising the azure waters as well as time to snorkel and enjoy glass bottom boat cruises and scuba diving.
