You can join the masses at Denarau, or you can follow our lead and experience the real Fiji. For us there are four significant options: firstly the stop and drop resorts in the coral coast – great for the family and plenty of excursions to do as well. If you want to learn to dive and experience some of the best snorkelling in Fiji head to Manta Ray Island in the Yasawas. If it is a more personalised and ‘away-from-the-crowds’ experience that you are after, try booking Big Blue Fiji – a 44 foot catamaran out of Nadi and design a holiday specifically for you, sailing, diving, fishing, surfing paired with unbelievable food. Finally if it’s just diving you are after then head to the world famous Volivoli Beach Resort.


The Fijians are some of the friendliest people in the Pacific and at places like the Yasawas, you can take time to get to know them at the local villages.


Fishing out of Manta Ray Island is pretty special. The dogtooth are so big we didn’t boat a single fish on our last trip and the GT that we did land was well over 40 kgs. On top of that there are Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel and Mahi Mahi. But it is the poppa fishing for giant GTs that will blow your mind.


On the mainland you simply must do a shark dive with Beqa Adventure Divers and one of the best shark dives on the planet. We are talking dozens of huge 200kg Bull Sharks along with Grey Reef Sharks, White tips and Black tips. This is bucket list material and we cannot fault this impressive operation both from a safety point of view but also for what they do for the sharks and the locals. For reef diving head north to Volivoli Beach Resort and Ra Divers to head out into the Bligh Waters for what is arguably some of the best coral reef diving on earth. Yasawas too offer exceptional reef diving and snorkelling and of course there’s Manta Ray Island’s manta rays.

Must Do's
