Tropical living in Fiji

The sun-kissed islands of Fiji reflect exactly what ‘Bula’ is all about – life. Fiji’s laid back community minded lifestyle makes for the perfect island getaway. Though don’t be fooled into thinking that Fiji's just about crystal blue waters and rugged landscapes - although those reasons alone are more than enough to make you pack your bags. There’s a lot more to this paradise than meets the eye. Lovers of adventure can expect a range of water sport activities from kayaking to snorkeling across all Fiji Islands!

When is the best time to visit Fiji?

Planning Fiji holidays can be tiring stuff...what brand of suntan lotion to take, how many swimsuits to pack - the list of first world problems is endless! Fiji is a year round destination, but you've got to make sure you pick the right time. We recommend the off peak season (March-October) to beat the crowds of families, with Fiji's dry season occuring between May-September.
