Fiji is truly paradise on earth! Make sure you include some of these fantastic experiences when you visit.
Why do anything at all when you can just lay out your towel, kick back and soak up the sunshine to the sound of blue waters lapping and pristine white sand beaches. After all, it is Fiji and well known for its “Fiji Time”. So take your watch off, switch off the mobile phone and kick off your shoes. Enjoy the ultimate in relaxation with nothing but time to chill out, breathe the fresh air and feel the sand between your toes.
Really immerse yourself in the Fijian culture while giving back to the local community with a visit to a local village and school. Here you have the opportunity to see the everyday life of the Fijians, and learn more about the culture and heritage. The children at the schools will be more than happy to show you around and find it just as entertaining to learn from you and your country. Try and take some small educational gifts to the children as mostly their supplies are limited, and you will be showered in laughter and smiles that will melt your heart. Visits can be organised on both the mainland and various islands.
If tasting the local cuisine is not enough, why not learn to make it yourself and bring back a lasting souvenir. Based at Denarau, Flavours of Fiji Cooking School offers a half day class to learn just what goes into your Fijian meals, and the best part, you get to eat what you cook. It is a fantastic opportunity to really immerse yourself into the Fijian way of life. You will be able to bring home not only a certificate to say you are qualified as a Fijian cook, but a collection of recipes to show off to your friends when you get home.
With gorgeous beaches and waters that are crystal clear, there is no other place more enticing than Fiji to get under the water and discover a whole new world. Snorkelling and diving in Fiji is incredible, with warm clear water, great visibility and a myriad of colourful fish and coral. Many places you can snorkel straight from the beach, however if you want to venture deeper, there are many great diving opportunities and companies that can help you get there. Some even include dives to view manta rays and sharks. There are many companies to book with, mostly based from Denarau at the port where the boats leave for the outer islands.
