Facts about Fiji
Your stay here in the Fiji Islands should be an enjoyable one - a hassle free one. So to help you accomplish that goal - we have compiled some information about Fiji that we hope will help make your holiday a truly magical experience.

Geography
Fiji’s 333 plus islands are located between 15 and 22 degrees south latitude and 177 west to 175-east latitude, with a total area of about 18,376 square kilometres. The three main islands are Viti Levu (where the capital Suva is located), Vanua Levu and Taveuni. The 180-degree meridian cuts across three places in Fiji (Udu Point, Rabi Island and Taveuni - all in Vanua Levu) - which means that Fiji is the first country in the world to see the dawn of each new day. Fiji is 12 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.
 
Climate
Fiji has a tropical climate and its driest period is between May and November when the cooling southeast trade winds blow. This is also Fiji’s winter/cold season. December to April is Fiji’s wet season (also Fiji’s summer season). Maximum summer temperatures average 30’Celsius (86’F) and the mean minimum is 23’ Celsius (73’F). The average winter temperature maximum is 26’ Celsius (79’F) and the mean minimum is 20’ Celsius (68’F).
 
Population
Fiji is a multi-cultural and multi-racial country. The nation’s population as at 2002 was about 826,281. Fijians comprise 53.4 per cent of the total population, Indians 39.7 per cent, with the balance made up of Rotumans, Chinese, Part-Europeans, Europeans and other Pacific Islanders. Fiji’s population grew at an annual average of 1.3 per cent between 2000-2002. Of this 826,281, about 53 per cent live in rural areas. Whilst indigenous Fijians are usually classed as Melanesians, they are actually a mixture of both Polynesian and Melanesian elements. Fiji Indians are mostly descendants of Indian labourers brought by the British to work in the sugar plantations during Fiji’s Indenture period, which ended in 1916.
