The locals, called Fijians, have a knack for making guests to Fiji feel welcome and a reputation for their friendly culture.
Take your pick: resorts on the island tend toward quiet, intimate locations with lush, comfortable surroundings that are impossible not to love.
Slip into your diving gear of choice and scuba dive or snorkel your way along Fiji's colorful coral reefs, many of which are only a short swim from the shore.
While the coastline is lovely, Fiji's inland rain forest is equally stunning. Go kayaking or hiking in Viti Levu and swim beneath waterfalls near Taveuni.
