About Fiji

Fiji is a beautiful island country consisting of an archipelago of 300 islands located in the Melanesia subregion of Oceania. This jewel of the South Pacific Ocean lies about 1770 Km north of New Zealand and 4450 Km southwest of Honolulu.

The clustered islets and islands of Fiji are filled with dense rainforest, exotic waterfalls, picturesque coral reefs, and shaggy volcano peaks. The endless coastline of the Fiji islands features a serene atmosphere with seagulls cooing, the waves crashing against the glistening sand, instilling a sense of calm in every visitor.

With more than 300 islands, this South Pacific paradise holds endless attractions for a visitor. The capital city of Suva lies on Viti Levu, the largest of the Fijian islands, and is known for its colonial architecture, lush green parks, museums, and centres of learning. The main international gateway to this county is the town of Nadi, close to which you can find relaxing hot springs, mud pools, and fascinating archaeological sites just waiting to be explored.

Each island in Fiji has something special to offer, and island-hopping is an activity through which you can experience them. The pristine waters surrounding the Fiji coastline are perfect for scuba diving, kayaking and other aquatic activities. On land, you can explore the uncharted wilderness by taking one of the many hiking trails and observe the native flora and fauna.

A perfect beachside holiday destination, Fiji has a warm tropical climate throughout the year. The temperature mostly lies between 26 and 31 degrees Celsius. The dry season occurs between May and October, and from November to April, the islands see heavy rain.
