Exotic Archipelago

Fiji: Paradise On Earth

Mary Elizabeth Collins

Fiji is the perfect escape for exclusive travelers seeking privacy in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape with pristine beaches, white sands, palm trees and extensive coral lagoons.

The Fiji archipelago—composed of more than 300 beautiful islands—is located in the South Pacific. Its closest neighbors are Australia, New Zealand, and New Caledonia, and only 110 islands are permanently inhabited. Fiji is a haven of peace and tranquility with stunning natural features—lush and pristine. Discerning travelers will find endless beaches with crystal clear waters and white sands, palm trees, extensive coral lagoons and mountains crowned by a perennial rainforest dotted with waterfalls.There are abundant reasons to visit Fiji. Here we give you the scoop on some of the most outstanding amenities available on this gorgeous archipelago.

Viti Levu

Viti Levu is the most populous and largest of the islands. We invite you to walk through its streets, visit the markets and, above all, engage with the friendly local population, which always offer a warm welcome to the visitors. The town’s main buildings evoke British architecture—traces of their colonial past. Suva, the capital, is a quiet and friendly city that requires a relaxing stroll to discover its many secrets. Do not miss a tour of Fiji´s Ethnographic Museum, where you will learn about the history of the island’s original inhabitants. Another place of interest is the Suva Municipal Market, a bustling and lively meeting place for locals and foreigners alike. This market reveals the pulse of the city and offers live seafood, fresh, colorful fish, and exotic fruits and vegetables.

The Coral Coast

South of Viti Levu is one of Fiji’s main attractions: the Coral Coast. One hundred and eighty miles long, the area is dotted with coastal cities like Sigatoka Korolevu, as well as picturesque villages caressed by the splendid nature. The Coral Coast offers a mountainous landscape permeated with sugarcane fields. But the real attractions in the region are the white sand beaches lapped by turquoise waters and surrounded by coral reefs. In the Mamanuca Islands, we recommend you hire the services of an expert diver to guide you through the seafloor and observe the astonishing coral reefs. These South Pacific reefs are teeming with a rich fauna of more than 340 native species, more than 1,200 different types of fish, 475 varieties of molluscs and five species of sea turtles.

Vanua Levu

Fiji’s second largest island, Vanua Levu, lures visitors with beautiful bays and lagoons as well as fascinating landscapes, wild forests, and endless coconut plantations. You will love a visit to Sausavu—known as the “hidden paradise”—where the main amenities are the healing hot springs. Another interesting attraction is the Savarekareka Mission, 7 miles north of Savusavu–the first Catholic mission in Vanua Levu, built around 1870 and still in operation. Fiji has a great selection of magnificent hotels and 5-star resorts. Some are as superb as the Laucala Island Resort, a spectacular private accommodation in Laucala Island, with over 3,500 acres of beautiful beaches, green mountains and coconut plantations. There is also the Likuliku Lagoon Resort, considered one of the best luxury hotels in the world, which often welcomes the most famous celebrities. Most of these idyllic resorts can be reached only by boat or private plane, allowing for total privacy and exclusivity. But perhaps the most original hotel in the archipelago is the Poseidon Undersea Resort, a five-star establishment where the rooms are located beneath the lagoon’s waters. Spectacular!
