There are only a few truly magical places left in the world, most of which are arduous to reach. Not so are the Fijian Islands. Direct international flights from North America, Australia, Japan, and Europe make getting here a snap.
Comprised of over 300 islands strewn in clusters among warm, tropical South Pacific waters, Fiji encompasses over 49,000 square miles of which 86 percent is ocean. Boasting visibility that leaps beyond 100 feet and waters that hover around 80 F, the Republic of Fiji is a unique locale by any standards.
Fiji's immense seascape is matched only by her topside landscape and people, both equally intoxicating and entwined in the culture and rhythm of this waterworld paradise.
Underwater, expect to be blown away. An idyllic haven for diving and snorkeling, crystal clear waters teem with tropical fish in every imaginable color.
Fiji is the "Soft Coral Capital of the World" with its dramatic walls covered with electric hues of orange, red, pink, and white-fringed by purple, inviting divers to explore an incredible diversity of dive sites so numerous, that you couldn't possibly see them all in a lifetime.
Beneath the miles of turquoise blue waters lie immense stretches of reef, thick with over 400 species of coral and even more species of fishlife.
Caverns home large groupers and graceful sea fans, walls are strung with all manner of marine life, and Fiji's abysmal depths are the stomping grounds of reef sharks, manta rays, dolphins, pilot whales and the occasional humpback.
A diving adventure in Fiji weaves the magic of land, people and sea into a tapestry thick with meaning and memories. This is Fiji's unique charm.
Fijians have been called the nicest people on earth. Hospitable and curious, the local Fijian people welcome visitors with bowls of kava, a heady yaquona root brew, that they ceremoniously share with their guests.
Fiji is safe, the islands have no malaria or other dangerous tropical diseases.
Their beaches and rain forests are lush but tame: no box jellyfish, no stinging plants, leeches, or deadly spiders and When you come to Fiji, bring an open-mind to a culture and land that will inevitably make a memorable vacation in this truly magical place.
Those who visit her shores are treated as an honored guest and friend, not just another tourist. Come and appreciate the Fijians' gracious hospitality and return it with kindness and respect.
Long known as the " Garden Island of Fiji " because of its lushness of vegetation, Taveuni is an island that for many, epitomizes the South Pacific dream.
