Things to do in Fiji

Snorkel or Scuba Dive

Fiji is surrounded by some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. And of course the best way to experience them is to go snorkelling or scuba diving. This will give you the opportunity to see colourful coral and lots of different fish up close and in their natural habitat. Most Fijian beaches have beautiful reefs off the coast, but the absolute best places to snorkel or scuba dive are the Namena Marine Reserve, Somosomo Strait where you’ll find the Rainbow Reef, and the Great Astrolabe Reef.

Try Out Some Water Sports

As a series of tropical islands, one of the top things to do in Fiji is to get out on the water and get active. Some popular water sports to try in Fiji are paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing. With the clear ocean water, you’ll be able to see the colourful fish and coral below you and get some beautiful views of the islands. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you could also rent a jet ski for a high speed trip through the water.

Participate in Fijian Traditions

The best way to experience the culture of Fiji is by meeting locals and participating in some traditional Fijian ceremonies. Many small villages love to welcome tourists and teach them about their island traditions. Kava ceremonies are popular ones to join in on and are focused around kava—a Fijian drink made from kava root that tastes like an earthy tea. Another exciting Fijian tradition is the lovo. A lovo is the Fijian version of a barbecue where the food is wrapped in banana leaves and cooked over hot rocks.

Relax on the Beach

You can’t book return flights from Brisbane to Fiji without spending some time at the beach. And with 333 islands, there are a lot of beautiful beaches to choose from! Many hotels and resorts have their own private beaches, and there are a number of private islands. There are even some private islands you can visit for the day when you reserve a spot in advance. Some of the top non-private beaches to have on your radar while visiting Fiji are Liku Beach, Natadola Beach, Yasawa Island Beach, and the beaches of Mana Island. All of these beaches feature soft white sand, bright blue water, and lots of beautiful palm trees.

Go for a Hike

Head inland from Fiji’s beaches and you’ll find lush forests, waterfalls, and mountains. Going for a hike is the perfect way to experience a different side of Fiji. To see lots of beautiful waterfalls, try out the Bouma National Heritage Park. The park makes up more than a third of Taveuni—the third-largest island in Fiji. For a challenging hike with an amazing view over Fiji, visit Des Voeux Peak. Once you’ve reached the summit, you’ll be rewarded with a view over several islands including Taveuni and Vanua Levu. From there, you can continue your hike to Lake Tagimaucia—a crater lake sitting 823 metres above sea level.

Go Zip Lining

Fiji is a country full of adventure sports. Its beautiful landscape and lush forests make it the perfect place to go zip lining. Many tour operators have zip lining tours that take you through the Fijian jungle with views of waterfalls and the ocean. Zip lining is the perfect way to get your adrenaline going between relaxing island activities.
