Imagine stepping into a lush Eden. A mystical place surrounded
by iridescent waters. Then enter a lavish honeymoon bungalow
complete with its own private beach
and stunning views of the exotic terrain. This is what is possible
in Fiji. Indeed, on your arrival to Fiji’s 322 islands,
you, too, will be convinced that your have landed in Paradise.
Covering over 7,000 sq. miles (1800 sq. km) in the South Pacific,
Fiji is one of the most romantic places for a honeymoon. Here
you can revel in luxurious accommodations such as Namale –
The Fiji Islands Resort & Spa, an ideal place for wind-surfing,
diving and love. Because of the coral and the excellent visibility
in the waters around Fiji, you can also look forward to spectacular
snorkeling. An excursion to Beqa Lagoon – the crater of
an extinct volcano – won’t disappoint. Turtle Island
is particularly known for romance. It is home to the Turtle
Island resort that can only accommodate 14 couples in a one-of-a-kind
setting. Here you can explore the Blue Lagoon by day and rendezvous
on the beach for a candle lit dinner in the evening. If shopping
is a ‘must’, it’s duty-free here. For jewelry,
nothing compares with the purchase of some black pearls found
here off Savusavu Bay. For something less expensive, visit the
Fijian Cultural Center and Marketplace near the Pacific Harbour
To experience Fijian culinary delights, try Riley’s Restaurant
on Naigani Island. It’s one of the best restaurants to
be found here. Or you can find very affordable fare at Makuluva
Delights near the Garden Island Resort where you can savor traditional
Fijian cuisine as well as European and Asian food. Yes, come
to Fiji for romance, adventure and pure delight.
Surfing…the reef ‘brakes’ are outstanding
here. The ‘extreme’ sports bar, SkyDive Fiji. Rafting
on the Upper Navua River. Traps Bar for the music; Bad Dog Café
for the drinks.
Fiji’s barrier reef, especially Great Astrolabe Reef.
The spectacular 160 ft. waterfall at Bouma Falls National Park.
The islands by helicopter. The Kula Eco Park on the Coral Coast.
Bring reef shoes for your snorkeling adventures. Mingle with
the locals at Old Mill Cottage in Suva. Attend a traditional

rain forest. Do absolutely nothing.
