How To Do Fiji In Just Seven Days
Hopping over to Fiji for a week-long holiday? Great idea – there’s no jet lag, for starters, and some 333 islands to discover. Here’s how to spend a week discovering Fiji’s delightful regions.
Day 1: Fly into Nadi and take a 30-minute flight onwards to Suva on the other side of Viti Levu. Explore the capital after checking in to the Grand Pacific Hotel (Queen Elizabeth has dropped in here three times).
Day 2: Island time! Toberua is a 1.5-hectare island lying just off the coast from Suva. The resort, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, features 16 traditional waterfront bures and exudes a very laidback vibe.
Day 3: Don’t rush off Toberua just yet. Take the chance to play Fiji’s only 9-hole par three reef golf course here or warm up on the 9-hole path putting course that’s nicknamed the mini Toberua PGA tour.
Day 4: Return to Nadi where you can jump into a helicopter or take a boat from nearby Port Denarau to reach one of the stunning tropical islands in the Mamanuca archipelago. Try Likuliku Lagoon Resort – a couples-only haven featuring 10 bures strung out along the edge of a fringing reef. Sit on the deck to drink in views of the living aquarium or admire it from the privacy of your own bathtub.
Day 5: Explore all the luxuries of the resort and the rest of Malolo Island before heading to Fiji’s northern region. Ask a travel agent how best to reach the garden island of Taveuni. Just offshore from Taveuni is the islet of Qamea, home to several resorts.
Day 6: Swim, snorkel or dive the pristine waters surrounding Qamea and wonder if you really have to leave this paradise tomorrow.
Day 7: Return to Nadi and bid a sad farewell to this stunningly beautiful land of smiles.
Ask an agent how you can create your own action-packed holiday.
