Here’s our pick of the top things to do in Fiji
Explore Vitu Levu
All Fiji travelers pass through Viti Levu en route to a palm-fringed resort. This is Fiji’s largest island and has so much more to offer than just the international airport. Viti Levu is the largest of Fiji’s Islands and home to the capital city of Suva, as well as the majority of Fiji’s residents. Viti Levu’s interior is dominated by mountains, including Mt. Tomanivi, an extinct volcano. From exploring jungles to bustling cities, rafting in river rapids to wandering around exotic gardens, there’s lots to do here.
Sabeto Hot Springs
Located midway between Lautoka and Nadi on the main island of Viti Levu, the most popular hot springs in Fiji, the Sabeto Thermal Mud Pool and Hot Springs, are a must-do attraction. There are 2 different places you can go to the mud pools in Fiji, both are right next to eachother. The first mud pool is called Sabeto and the other is Tifajek. Due to the sulphur in the hot springs, the Sabeto’s mud baths are said to have healing powers.
Explore Fiji, Tonga, Niue and the Cook Islands. Tour a vanilla plantation on Tonga, spot Fiji wood swallows and other birds on the Garden Island of Taveuni and do some snorkeling around Beveridge Reef which is a submerged atoll.
Kula WILD Adventure Park
Kula WILD Adventure Park is Fiji’s biggest Family Fun Park and an ecological preserve in Fiji. It is located on Fiji’s largest island, Viti Levu, near Sigatoka. The Kula Wilde Adventure Park is the perfect place for a family day out and this wildlife sanctuary showcases some magnificent wildlife such as Fiji’s only native land mammal, the Fijian flying fox. Don’t miss the splash mountain jungle slide and an awesome zipline.
Raft the Upper Navua River
Lavena Coastal Walk
Lavena Coastal Walk hiking path is located in Bouma National Heritage Park on Taveuni Island, Fiji. The 5km Lavena Coastal Walk follows the forest edge along white-sand Lavena beach, then to a volcanic black-sand beach, past peaceful remote villages and eventually to twin waterfalls. You can hire a guide for this walk or go it alone.
The Fiji Museum is located 5 mins drive from the Capital City of Fiji, Suva, in the capital city’s botanical gardens, Thurston Gardens. The Fiji Museum holds a remarkable collection, which includes material dating back 3700 years and offers a great journey into Fiji’s historical and cultural and evolution.
Fiji Polynesian Passage
Live out a Robinson Crusoe fantasy by paddling the northern most Yasawa islands, west of the Fiji Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Spend a few nights mingling with the natives in a Fijian village and uninhabited island.
Sigatoka Sand Dunes
The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park is located at the mouth of the Sigatoka River on the island of Viti Levu in Fiji. Sculptured through the workings of wind, water and vegetation, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes stand out as one of Fiji’s most unique wonders and were designated Fiji’s first National Park in July 1989. With dunes reaching heights of 60m, this National Park is worth a visit for its wild beauty, excellent walks and archaeological treasures.
While in Fiji explore the three waterfalls at Bouma National Heritage Park on Taveuni Island. Framed by thick lush green jungle, these three waterfalls (also known as the Bouma Falls) epitomise the ‘Garden Island’ epithet Taveuni is famous for. The first waterfall, called the Lower Bouma Falls, is roughly 24m tall and is the most popular because you can swim here. The Middle Bouma Falls has a 15m drop and last but not least, the double-barreled Upper Bouma Falls has the shortest drop of the three at 10m, but has a serene and secluded setting.
