Holidays in Fiji are the most popular in the South Pacific islands and probably the most diverse too. If you have never visited the South Pacific before, then a holiday to the Fiji Islands should be your first stop!
There are over 300 islands to explore and almost 100 Fiji resorts to choose from, many on beautiful uninhabited islands or tucked into secluded bays backed by tropical forests.
The downside is that you will be paying a lot more for your holiday very soon - a whopping 25% tourist tax will come in to effect with the new budget in January 2016 ... so book now!
Families are spoilt for choice - the Mamanucas are best for beach and watersports, the Yasawas are similar but more remote whilst the Coral Coast offers easy access, activities and value for money.
Spending a honeymoon in Fiji is the dream for many couples. There are plenty adults only resorts on private islands or tucked into secluded bays and offering with exceptional service and dining.
Fiji is a fantastic destination for both water sports and sightseeing. Apart from world class scuba diving and surfing, there are great hiking trails and sightseeing tours on the main island with almost all resorts boasting great snorkelling and kayaking off the beach.

Fiji Resorts Guide
There's an excellent choice of accommodation all around the Fiji Islands including large international brand hotels, exclusive private island resorts for couples, lively beach resorts for families and budget huts for backpackers. Most resorts in Fiji are located on a secluded beach front, sometimes on an uninhabited island making them ideal for honeymoons or a romantic break. For those that like to move around, or have the freedom to enjoy independent restaurants, staying on the main island is a better option - at most island resorts there are no restaurants outside of the hotel and no means of exploring on your own.
Fiji Holidays Guide
The star attraction of Fiji holidays is its wonderful island resort ambience and the fantastic Fijian hosts that ensure your holiday runs on Fiji time. Staff are encouraged to interact with guests, greeting everyone by name from day one. Kids get pampered no end, jokes are shared, "Bula!" is constantly exchanged and almost all holiday-makers leave with exceptionally fond memories of Fiji and promises of returning again next year - many indeed do. Some holiday-makers have clocked over 20 visits and growing!
With so many secluded islands to enjoy, it's no wonder that beach holidays in the Fiji Islands are such a popular choice for Australians and New Zealand tourists as well as being a hugely popular honeymoon or wedding destination for Americans and Europeans.
