Fiji

It’s been a longtime go-to for honeymoons and romantic getaways, and for good reason. An archipelago of sigh-inducing tropical islands (332 in total), Fiji has all the makings of an unforgettable holiday. Think luxe resorts, pristine beaches, crystalline waters teeming with colourful creatures and majestic mountains shrouded in dense jungle. The Fijian people are incredibly friendly too – like just-met-you-but-now-you’re-like-old-pals friendly – and they’re proud as punch to share their wonderful culture with visitors.

Popular picks for islands include upscale Denarau and Vitu Levu, while couples seeking a slice of The Blue Lagoon paradise will love the Yasawas (the 1980 film was actually shot here). Perfect for those wanting to go all-out, these dazzling islands are where you’ll find underwater caves, manta ray-filled reefs, white sandy beaches and private island resorts. Taveui (or the ‘Garden Isle’) is also definitely worth a visit, blessed with magnificent waterfalls, authentic villages and forests dotted with lovely exotic flowers.
