Best Places to Visit in Fiji

  • May 16, 2022

The Republic of the Fiji Islands is regarded as one of the world's top ten honeymoon destinations. Fiji's sea is colorful due to the plethora of strange and colorful sea fish that swim in the water and color the sea. Fiji has over 300 islands of varying sizes surrounded by a ring of coral reefs, creating a haven for fish. Miti Levu, Fiji's most populous island, is also the most recognizable.

In Fiji, you can scuba dive, snorkeling, or sea fishing. And on Medilai Mau Island, you can dive and snorkel in well-developed coral reefs, raft in the highlands, and, if you want to experience local culture, visit traditional villages and enjoy traditional Mick dances.

After sightseeing in Nandi and Suva, you can travel to the Coral Coast to go horseback riding, scuba diving, and food tasting.

See what else Fiji has to offer and if there are places, you would like to visit.

The sparsely populated Yasawa Islands appear more remote than the popular Mamanuca Islands, but they offer some of the most unspoiled scenery on these islands, surrounded by turquoise blue waters and steep peaks that plunge into beautiful white sand beaches. And also is the setting for the film (Red Sea).

What activities are available in the Yasawa Islands? Kayaking in shallow waters, swimming, or doing nothing but lying around in chic resorts are enjoyable activities, and you can also visit the cathedral-like Savoy Ilao Caves.

If you want to stay on vacation, the Yasawa Islands have a variety of lodging options. There are rustic backpacker accommodations as well as luxury resorts such as Paradise Bay Resort, Turtle Island, and Yasawa Island Resort. And there are two ways to get here: by plane or by boat.

3. Castaway Island

Castaway Island (or Kalito) is a small island in the Mamanuca archipelago of Fiji. Castaway Island, formerly known as "Kalito" by Fijians, is now a private island resort popular for holidays and vacations, particularly honeymoons and family vacations.

You can arrive here by boat or plane, this beautiful island with turquoise waters and soft sandy beaches, where you can snorkel, soar through the world of the ocean, and enjoy baptism in the sea's species.

If you have extra time, a short stay on the island to enjoy the sunrise and sunset, bathe in the sun and listen to the sound of the waves will make you forget your worries. Feel the peace of mind. Of course, this is also the best time for you with your family.

One of Fiji's most beautiful and spectacular Hindu temples is the rainbow-colored Sri Siva Subramanian Temple. At first glance, the building's unique appearance, with its extensive painting, appears magnificent, attracting devotees and visitors who come here to admire the stunning Dravidian architecture.

The completion of this temple brought together the work of many artists, with artists coming from as far away as India to paint the temple and fresco its colorful ceiling. It was only then that the building we see now was built, and this temple is dedicated to the god Mongam, who is depicted in the wooden statues from India that are placed in the main temple.
