Fiji, a country in the South Pacific, is an archipelago of more than 300 islands.
It’s famed for rugged landscapes, palm-lined beaches and coral reefs with clear lagoons. Its major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, contain most of the population. Viti Levu is home to the capital, Suva, a port city with British colonial architecture. The Fiji Museum, in the Victorian-era Thurston Gardens, has ethnographic exhibits.
Famous for its soft coral diving, white sand beaches and pristine natural environment, Fiji is a haven for conservation. Fiji’s third largest island is known as the Garden Island for good reason: Lush jungle, gorgeous beaches, secluded waterfalls and abundant wildlife make Taveuni an eco-tourist’s dream.
Discover a Lush Tropical Paradise
Lush tropical and pine vegetation is spread across the interior lands and white sandy beaches wrap around the coasts. Pristine blue-green waters house vibrant soft coral reefs and there are deep drop-offs, perfect for diving and fishing. Only just over 100 of the nation’s islands are permanently inhabited. There are two main islands in Fiji—Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.
The majority of Fiji’s islands were formed through volcanic activity. There is still some geothermal activity today on the islands of Vanua Levu and Tavenui.
Because of the abundance of forest, mineral and fishing resources, Fiji is one of the most developed economies in the Pacific island realm today.
The tourism industry is one of the fastest growing industries in Fiji and it’s no surprise with such incredible conservation, adventure and relaxation opportunities around! There are plenty of unique tropical experiences to enjoy and, wherever you go, you’ll be greeted by smiles and glorious sunshine!
