An Introduction to Fiji

Click here to download the Travel Tips PDF for Fiji!

The Fiji Islands, in the South Pacific, are an archipelago of over 330 islands packed with attractions that can be found no where else. They lie at the crossroads of the Pacific, between North America and Australia, and have an interesting blend of various cultures, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indian, European and Chinese. This blend is reflected in the food, the language, architecture and ambiance.

Colonial Levuka, the old European trader settlement and Fiji's former capital, has been officially designated a historic town. A number of buildings date from its boom period in the late 19th century and the main streetscape is surprisingly intact, giving the impression of a town that has stopped in time. Likewise, Suva’s British influence is reflected in its many colonial buildings, including Government House, the Suva City Library and the Grand Pacific Hotel.

Despite outside influences many traditions have remained intact  and today’s visitor can observe time-honored traditions, explore ancient relics, experience well-preserved cultures and share in past legends as they are retold around the kava bowl, Fiji’s traditional ceremonial and social drink.

A nature lover's delight, Fiji has an unspoiled, unique environment of extreme beauty and tranquility. Adrift for millennia in splendid isolation in the blue of the South Pacific it has escaped the evils of industrial progress, the incursions of dangerous animals, poisonous snakes, spiders and pestilent diseases such as malaria.

If variety is the spice of life, then Fiji is scuba diving's red hot chili pepper.

Trying to sum up the special appeal of these waters is like packing a bag for an epic journey through four seasons - or editing years of underwater video into just 30 minutes of tape!

Most people know Fiji as the soft coral capital of the world and that’s true!  But soft corals are only a symbol of Fiji’s complete story: the soft corals vibrant colors and giant size, the diversity of fish and invertebrates that live among their branches, the dramatic changes they undergo in an ancient rhythm of survival with the tides and currents, and the many types of underwater environments in which they thrive.

Fiji’s remarkable soft corals embody all the elements that make Fiji’s reefs so exceptional.  Drama and diversity, brilliant lavish panoramas, deep water rich with food and hiding places for the mysterious and rare Fiji’s marine realm is as dynamic and splendid as nature can be.

With 333 islands surrounded by reefs and the entire spectrum of  underwater terrain, from sharks, rays and 1000 species of fish to the vivid rainbow of  soft corals, sea stars and myriad shrimp, one word does describe Fiji’s extremely diverse diving: color.

Fiji is the color of your wildest dreams - surrender to it and enjoy the view.
