Blessed with 333 beautiful tropical islands, and over 110 inhabited ones, Fiji is the destination to head to for a romantic holiday, honeymoon, wedding, weekend breakers visiting Australia and New Zealand, volunteer travellers, or sport junkies,… there is indeed, plenty of space and activities to fit all travellers needs and requirements.
The climate in Fiji is amazing from temperatures in the summer on average at 31C and 29C in winter…not really winter to me !
Fiji has its fair share of history which reflects in a very rich and interesting culture, food, traditions. Fijians are such warm and adorable people, seating around the kava, I listened to beautiful love songs and stories from the past… I watched with great interest the warrior dances and I emerged myself into the “Fiji Time” helped by the properties of Kava !!
The Fijian cuisine has been influenced by all the diverse community living on the islands : Fijians, Polynesians Indians, Europeans,… I was amazed to taste the best chicken curry of my life, Fijian style ! Coconut is of course being used a lot in the cooking and can be find in cakes, but curry and fresh sea food salad as well.

How to get there :
Air Pacific (soon to be Fiji Airways) is Fiji’s international carrier that has direct flights from Auckland, Christchurch, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. So if you’re travelling from the UK you will need to change over at one of these cities on the way.
