The ultimate island getaway
Fiji is a South Pacific archipelago comprising over 300 islands – some inhabited but many untouched. Each island offers something different but white sandy beaches, peaceful lagoons and locals keen to show off their culture make every single one a fascinating destination.
A luxury vacation to Fiji is the ultimate island getaway and with a range of resorts to choose, including all-inclusive private island resorts, it is the perfect opportunity to just switch off. Surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the South Pacific, it’s no surprise that swimming, snorkelling and diving are some of the most popular activities. The vibrant underwater world is a fascinating place to explore with colourful schools of fish, turtles, manta rays and tiger sharks.
The Mamanucas and the Yasawa Islands, sitting to the west of Viti Levu, are some of Fiji’s most popular, characterised by palm-fringed beaches and powder soft sand. Sitting to the north east is Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island, while to the south is the Kadavu Island Group. These islands are surrounded by the Great Astrolabe Reef and offer some of the best diving in the area.
Although the beaches are one of the main draws of a trip to Fiji, there are also incredible hiking trails, bird-watching opportunities and the chance to discover traditional culture with a visit to a local village. Fijians are incredibly proud of their heritage and with Indian, Chinese and European ancestry the culture is incredibly varied. Most trips to Fiji include a lovo – a traditional feast cooked in an earth oven, and a kava ceremony where guests are invited to try Fiji’s national drink and get to learn more about the Fijian way of life.
We have hand-picked our favourite resorts in Fiji – some are the perfect retreat for honeymooners while others are geared up for families looking for an active vacation. If you want to really get out and explore the islands, then a cruise or private charter is the perfect way to travel.

When to go
Tropical Fiji is warm year-round, with temperatures generally hovering around 25-30°C (77-86°F). The dry season, from May to October, is the best time to visit Fiji, as it enjoys less rain, pleasant breezes and cooler nights. June and July are the busiest months as they coincide with Australia and New Zealand’s winter holiday months.
Summer, from November to April, is humid and sees torrential tropical downpours, usually in the afternoon, and the occasional storm. Calm mornings and late afternoons make this a great time for scuba divers.
