The Adrenaline-Rush Adventure - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
The islands of Fiji are not just about romance and relaxation–they are packed with land- and water-based activities that will satisfy even the most ardent adrenaline junkies. On the main island of Viti Levu, visitors can kayak or raft the Navua River, take a jet boat safari up the Sigatoka River, or go hiking, mountain biking, zip-lining, surfing, sky-diving, parasailing or shark-feeding. Activities on the outlying islands vary, but include hikes to waterfalls, nature treks on Kaduvu.

Top Reasons to Visit Fiji in the South Pacific
What makes Fiji's 333 islands rank among the must-sees of the South Pacific is the fact that mixed in with all of its exotic ambiance are a range of familiar activities popular with a wide array of travelers? Here are my top reasons for putting Fiji on your travel itinerary.

The Captivating Local Culture - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
Fiji is a melange of two cultures: native Fijians, who are proud of their Melanesian culture, and Indians, who were brought o Fiji as servants by the British in l19th-century and now are more than 30 percent of the population. Visitors will likely witness Fijian traditions such as a kava ceremony, a lovo feast and a meke dance.

The Private-Island Resorts - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
Fiji's abundance of private islands–some just a few dozen acres in size–are the closest most of us will ever get to feeling like a cast away. Rather than build big resorts, these islands' owners have focused on a traditional Fijian feel, with small (less than 30 guests at one time) resorts offering seclusion and top-notch service.

The Romantic Bures - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
The typical accommodation in Fiji is known as a bure, a traditional thatched-roof wood bungalow set along the beach or tucked back into a fringe of tropical foliage. Often one room, but sometimes two, bures feature louvered windows to let in breezes and are mainly cooled by overhead fans (although those at some luxury resorts are air-conditioned) and feature exotic amenities such as net-draped beds, outdoor showers and plunge pools.

The Friendly and Welcoming Fijian People - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
Ask anyone who's just back from Fiji what they liked the most and there's a good chance the answer will be

The Amazing Snorkeling and Scuba Diving - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
Fiji's crystal-clear South Pacific sea water, ideal location along protected reefs renowned for their brilliant soft coral formations and 1,000 species of fish, and relative lack of development (outside of Viti Levu, where 75 percent of the population lives), make snorkeling and diving a major draw. Almost every resort has an onsite dive operator or works closely with one located nearby and offers PADI certification for neophytes who want to take the plunge.

The Super Fresh Seafood - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
Seafood is a staple the Fijian cuisine, with some of the more popular varieties being mahi mahi, tuna, snapper, grouper, pawns, lobster and crab. Seafood here is served both cooked and raw. While the islands of Tahiti to the East call their lime-juice- and coconut-milk–marinated tuna poisson cru, Fijians use mahi mahi marinated in coconut milk and lime with onions and tomatoes to make their national delicacy called kokodo.

The Fabulous Spas - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
Fiji islands' leading spas incorporate local natural resources–such as fresh fruits and oils, sand and sea salt–into their treatment menus. Since Fiji caters to honeymooners (many of them celebrities) couples massages and body treatments are also popular. Some of the leading resort spas include the Spa & Sanctuary at Namale Resort (pictured here), the Mandara Spa at Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa, the Jungle Spa at Qamea Resort & Spa, and the Tatadra Spa at Likuliku Lagoon Resort.

The World Class Golf - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
A good golf course is not all that easy to find in the South Pacific. But golfer Vijay Singh, a native of Fiji, has put his country's interest in the sport on the map. Fiji's main island of Viti Levu has three championship courses, including the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course and Denarau Golf Club. There also also a handful of nine-hole courses scattered around Viti Levu and a few outlying islands.

The Beautiful Beaches - Top Reasons to Visit Fiji
Most of the islands in Fiji have excellent beaches, many with sugar-white sand washed by calm lagoon water since the islands are ringed by protective coral reefs. In addition, many of Fiji's resorts are set near offshore sand bars, where couples are transported for a day-long picnic with an umbrella, cooler filled with food and drink and snorkel gear to enjoy some alone time on a tiny speck of sand in the middle of the gorgeous South Pacific.
