Fiji Holidays: An Overview

The 330 or so islands of the Fijian archipelago in the South Pacific are some of the most beautiful in the world. The vast majority of the population lives on the main island, Viti Levu, conveniently leaving many of the other islands either thinly populated or completely deserted.

Neill and Louisa are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • The Great White Wall in the Somosomo Strait is one of our favourite dives of all time.
  • Fiji is renowned for having the friendliest people on Earth. We agree with this.
  • Fiji is also renowned as the soft coral capital of the world. Ripping currents mean pretty colours!
  • World-class shark dives, coral and beautiful hotels make Fiji a winner.

Luxury Diving Holidays in Fiji: The Detail

Fiji's waters are considered to be among the best in the world for diving. The soft coral capital of the world, Fiji also offers an abundance of stunning tropical fish as well as reef sharks, dolphins, manta rays and turtles which can be seen throughout the islands. Visibility is excellent, often at more than 50 metres.

These islands really have it all from stunning reef walls and wrecks to excellent cave and night diving. The seas are always warm and above the waves you will encounter quite possibly the friendliest people on the planet. These islands, with their stunning white sand beaches and volcanic peaks coated in lush tropical vegetation draw surfers and divers from around the world, as well as those merely happy to chill out in idyllic, exotic surroundings at some of the world's best hotels.

To dive in Fiji it takes a while to get there, but the journey is well worth the effort. We have chosen the very best of a very good bunch of accommodation to make sure that once you get there your stay is incredible.

Original Highlight

Traditional Fijian Cloth

Church on a Sunday is a big part of the Fijians' lives, and visitors are welcome to go and join them for their weekly services. It's an activity that we find that our clients love: it gives insight into the warmth of the local communities, and exposes them to the special charm of the islands.
