    Over 330 thirty islands of tropical beauty, hosted by a wonderfully friendly and playful culture. Just try and get off the tourist route around Nadi and the Yasawas. Go to Savu Savu for a small little isolated town. Dive rainbow reef off Taveuni, and swim with the dolphins in Takalana.

    Exotic, beautiful and forever alluring. The Yasawas are heaven on Earth. Once Fiji gets a grip on your soul, it never lets go.

    On a surf trip? Get ready to cut yourself to shreds! Shallow reef. Obviously epic surfing, but bring scuba/snorkel gear with you as well. Locals (Fijians and Indians alike) were friendly.

    In all of our travels we have not found any people more friendly and open than the Fijians. Bula (Hello) was always said to us no matter where we were.

    Definitely go during the dry season. We came just after the rains had ended and almost eaten to death by mosquitos. The outer islands are better for insect but also pricier.

    Can't wait to go back!

    Fiji was great. Robinson Crusoe Island was amazing! The scuba diving and snorkeling was also incredible.

    Stayed on the Coral Coast.
    Nice, but a long way from top spots.
    The resort had everything we needed, but wanted more action and places to go.

    Coolest airport ever! Huge raised huts window openings (no glass or even shutters) birds flew in and through the series of buildings. Also the best airport deals anywhere in the world on local jewelry and gifts.

    OK, not specifically Fiji but thought I'd to my Fiji guide as this is where I went on my honeymoon!

    Here are my top five tips for husbands when planning a honeymoon

    Keep it a surprise

    …and I mean right the way through the honeymoon… here are my top five bits of advice on keeping it a surprise

    I. Spoof itineraries… Get your tour operator to send a few spoof itineraries home, brilliant if your wife is nosy and can’t resist the temptation to peek. Get the real itinerary and documentation sent to your work address.

    II. Pack for your wife… Ask her to leave you with a few piles of clothes – essentials, cold weather clothes, kit for adventure, stuff for a beach and a pile of smart things. You then pack for her. Even better if you then buy her some new things for the trip. The unpacking will even be a surprise.

    III. Speak nicely to the check-in staff… There is no reason why your wife can’t stand back from the check-in desk while you ask the check-in staff to keep the destination quiet. Even better, go somewhere so remote that you need a second flight to get to your first stop. Our first stop was a small island off Lombok in Indonesia. When the BA captain welcomed to the flight to Singapore I could see disappointment all over my wife’s face while I spent the next 14 hours bigging up the joys of a honeymoon shopping in Singapore. When we boarded the next flight to Denpasar, she had no idea where it was and continued to have no idea until we walked through immigration to a cheery, “welcome to Bali.” Even then we were going on from there

    IV. Keep each stage a surprise… Assuming your trip will be split into a few pieces, only let your wife know about each section as it happens

    V. Don’t tell anyone… Not even your family and least of all your best man. That way there’s no way anyone can spill the beans

    Go somewhere new and learn something new…

    Tempted as you might be to take your new wife to your favourite place on earth, it’s so much better to explore somewhere completely new for both of you. You’ve got plenty of time in the rest of your life to show her some of your old favourites. While in the new vein think about learning something

    new together. We learned to dive in the UK doing all the boring classroom stuff here before we went. (to keep the surprise element, we also learned a few other things too!) I then made sure that every place we went had the possibility to dive. It was incredible to experience this new underwater world together.

    Start with the relaxing bit….

    You’ll have been running on adrenalin for the last few weeks and the wedding day itself will most probably hit you for six. The likelihood is that you’ll barely leave your bed for the first few days. Such a shame if you’ve got booked in heli-bungee-whitewater-skiing in the first few days and you can hardly keep your eyes open. Maybe even consider spending the first few days in a swanky hotel in the UK to get your energy back and head away on the Wednesday after your honeymoon Saturday.

    Honeymoon crescendo…

    Make sure the quality of the honeymoon be that accommodation or experience gets better with each stage. Do it the other way round and you’ll both be constantly harking back to Day one.

    Take three weeks…

    Only the most heartless of bosses will deny your request of a three week honeymoon. On a two week honeymoon for the first week you’re asleep and for the second week you’re dreading coming back.

    …and here are my top three don’t dos!

    1. Don’t take your wife to somewhere you went with an ex. If you insist also consider drawing up the divorce papers before you go.
    2. Don’t bring your mobile phone and office email access password. Leave them at home.
    3. Don’t book anything on a boat unless you’re sailing it yourself. There’s bound to be someone on the boat who drives you both mad and the likelihood is you won’t be able to get off.

    Relaxing vacation spot. A variety of restaurants and bars. Fiji beer is best when served cold!

    Make sure you explore Fiji - don't spend all your time in the resort areas!

Description

While Fiji is known for its island-paradise coast -- powdery sand beaches, tropical palms swaying in the light breeze, dive sites teeming with tropical fish and soft coral -- the island group in the South Pacific also offers an inland paradise. If you can tear yourself from the beaches, inland Fiji offers jungles with ridiculously beautiful waterfalls and languid warm rivers, coconut plantations and a thriving local culture. Relax at an all-inclusive resort hotel, with parasailing, children's entertainment and buffet restaurants -- or stay on your own in a small B&B or hostel. Fiji's diving and snorkeling are well known, and you can even stay at a resort run by Jacques Cousteau's son. Those wishing to see the Fijian side of things should head into the capital of Suva, an industrial city home to half of the Fijian population. Unlike many of its South Pacific neighbors, most Fijian residents (especially on the main islands) speak English.
