Are you planning a dream vacation to Fiji? I get it, you want to make it as amazing as possible! But there are so many options for activities and your time is limited. How do you choose what to do?

We have been to Fiji tons of times (we even got married there!) and have done it all. From scuba diving to exploring remote islands there is a jaw-dropping amount of fun to be had.

That’s why we put together a list of the best things we have ever done. But it’s more than just that. I’ve included must-have information about Fiji that we discovered only after visiting and couldn’t find anywhere else online!

Alright, enough talking. Keep reading and let’s plan your dream vacation!

34 BEST Things to do in Fiji

1. Relax at Malamala Beach Club

Malamala Beach Club is a sleek, modern beach club on a private island only 30 minutes from the Port Denarau Marina by boat, making it super convenient to visit if you are staying in Denarau. We came here with some friends after our wedding and had so much fun. It is one of our favorite places in Fiji, so it’s a no-brainer we put it as #1 on this list!

Since it’s on a private island, you must book a tour to get there (unless you BYOB – bring your own boat)! This full-day tour to Malamala gives you around 7 hours to experience everything this beach club has to offer. You can relax and soak up all of the beautiful scenery, take a dip in the infinity pool, make use of the free snorkeling equipment, go SUPing, or go for a walk along the white sandy beach.

The water is crystal clear and boasts an impressive reef out front – we even saw a turtle! When we weren’t in the water we relaxed on the beach while listening to great music, sipping on cocktails, and indulging in delicious food from the restaurant. I can’t forget to mention the infinity pool for some great tropical vacation vibes!

A full-day pass to Malamala Beach Club costs $85 USD. This includes hotel transfer, boat ride to and from Malamala, and use of snorkeling and non-motorized water sports equipment. It’s important to note that food and drinks are NOT included, so be sure to budget extra for those! This really isn’t a bad deal for how incredible of an experience Malamala is!

You also have the option to reserve a daybed in advance for a fee after you book by contacting Viator. But in my opinion, this isn’t overly necessary as there are many free daybeds available for use. We just claimed some chairs as soon as we got on the island.

All in all, we LOVED our day at Malamala. You can read our full review (and our top tips for visiting) here!

2. Go Scuba Diving

Fiji is world-renowned for scuba diving! There are tons of brightly colored fish and corals to see as well as sharks. Yes, sharks! Scuba divers come from all over the world to go shark diving in Fiji.

Now, we don’t exactly recommend chartering a boat and simply hopping out while you’re at sea… Instead, we’d suggest heading out on an organized shark diving experience where you can safely get up close and personal with some of the most amazing animals on the planet!

Having been on tons of scuba experiences in the past, we know to only look out for tour organizers who genuinely care about the welfare of the animals they’re showcasing. When we learned about this ultimate shark encounter experience through some friends of ours, we were so happy to learn that the guides were really knowledgeable and super friendly.

Setting off from the meeting point in Pacific Harbour, the entire experience lasted between 4 and 5 hours and included all the gear needed to have a safe and incredible time. The guides also take tons of photos, so we got some epic shots during it too.

Of course, you’ll see plenty of other amazing marine life while you’re down there, like the beautiful coral, huge snappers, and other colorful tropical fish too. But the stars of the show have to be the super impressive bull sharks, which grow to over 16 feet (4.9 meters)! You can also see nurse sharks, gray reef sharks, lemon sharks… The list goes on and on!

Even if you’re thinking of staying in Nadi or Suva, we think this once-in-a-lifetime experience really is worth the journey over to Pacific Harbour. Tickets for this experience start at $180 USD for adults (15+) and you’ll also need to be fully open-water certified in order to participate.

If shark diving isn’t your thing, there are tons of other scuba trips all over Fiji that take you to brightly colored coral reefs off the shores of isolated islands. These scuba trips are much cheaper than shark diving trips and if you aren’t already scuba certified, there are many companies that offer training, like Subsurface Fiji in Nadi and even over at Mantaray Island Resort!

3. Visit Seventh Heaven Floating Bar

Ever wanted to be transported to paradise to relax with amazing food and cocktails? Well, Seventh Heaven Fiji is the perfect place for that! We took a trip out to Seventh Heaven with some friends and wow did we have a fantastic day – read our full review and experience here!

You’ll need to book your tickets to Seventh Heaven online before you go. Then the boat ride here leaves Port Denaru and takes around 45 minutes each way.

Once there, you can grab yourself a spot on the floating bar and soak it all up. The bar is located just off a shallow reef so there is lots of snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, and relaxing to do. You can also jump off the dive board, order some delicious food, or just have a few cocktails. We did a mix of the above and really enjoyed it.

The prices at the bar are very reasonable too. We also never expected the cocktails and food to be so good due to the location, but we were pleasantly surprised! Everything tasted fresh and it was one of the best meals we had in Fiji. Oh, and with table service, we never had to go to the bar!

It’s arguably the best bar in Fiji and is located in some of the most pristine waters you’ll ever see! If the photos above don’t get you excited, I don’t know what will!

A day out at Seventh Heaven starts at $73 USD for pre-booked tickets. This includes your boat ride to and from Seventh Heaven and pick-up from select Denarau hotels. They can also arrange transport from your hotel for an extra fee (this is what we did and organized pick-up from First Landing Resort). All food and drinks are on your own dime (and they only take credit FYI!) but prices are reasonable with beers starting at $5 USD and wood-fired pizzas for $15 USD.

4. Go Snorkeling

How cool!

Fiji is surrounded by over 10,020 sq km (3,869 sq mi) of vibrant coral reefs, teeming with some of the most amazing fish we’ve ever seen. It’s a no-brainer then that you’ll want to head out into the big blue and do some snorkeling while you’re on your trip, so where do you start?

While you can go snorkeling on your own from various hotels around Fiji, we found it to be a little bit tricky to know where exactly to go. Even more so if you’re staying on the main island of Viti Levu which is huge. The last thing you want when on holiday is to be wasting time figuring out where exactly is the best place to go snorkeling!

This is where we’d suggest trying out a snorkel tour, where local guides who know the area like the backs of their hands will take you to the very best spots. Some of these tours even include a cruise out to the remote islands, as well as lunch and other fun activities.

If you’ve got time to spend and want to get some snorkeling and have a full day of activities, then this trusted Nadi Tivua Island day cruise could be just what you’re looking for! With pickup from Nadi and Port Denarau hotels included you’ll get the chance to sail on a classic two-masted sailing ship over to Tivua Island. How cool is that!?

Whenever we go on tours, we always look for the ones that are run by locals who really care about their work – these guys really have this down to a T. There was a beautiful Kava ceremony as soon as we arrived at the island, and then we had some free time to get to explore and get to know the island. Of course, we just had to try out some snorkeling through the coral reefs!

One thing to keep in mind is that this is a full-day tour that includes snorkeling but isn’t necessarily a snorkeling-focused tour. We have one of those listed below for our adventurous travelers! I recommend this tour opinion if you’re looking for a relaxing day tour with some snorkeling included.

Tickets for this tour start from $114 USD per person, which also includes an impressive buffet lunch.

For something even more adventurous, try snorkeling with sharks! This shark encounter tour takes you out to Kuata Island, which is home to a variety of incredible fish and, of course, sharks. After a safety briefing, your guide will take you out to snorkel with the reef sharks. Don’t worry though, these guys are pretty harmless!

This tour is suitable for all levels, whether this is your first time snorkeling or your 100th! We love that this is a snorkel-specific tour, so you won’t feel rushed and can simply enjoy being in the water and seeing all the marine life.

This is a full-day tour, and you’ll get lunch, all your snorkel equipment, and a beautiful day on the water! You can grab your tickets for this experience for around $177 USD per person.

5. Visit the Mud Pools in Nadi

Just on the outskirts of Nadi is The Sabeto Mud Pools and Hot Springs, a little gem of an activity that’s essentially an all-natural day spa. In short, visitors first cover themselves in mud, which leaves the skin super soft (take my word for it!). Then, you get to sit back and enjoy natural hot pools of all different temperatures. How does that sound?!

You’ve got a couple of options when it comes to visiting the mud pools. You can either jump in a taxi from Nadi or Denarau and head there yourself, where entry is $20 FJD per person or go there as part of a curated tour. The choice is entirely up to you!

If you’re traveling on a budget, then going there yourself would probably be the better option if you just want to see (and try out) the mud pools and springs. Open daily from 8 am to 6 pm, the experience should only take an hour or so, and it is something people of all ages will definitely enjoy.

You can plan an amazing spa day by reading our full guide about visiting the mud pools in Fiji here!

For those with a little more time on their hands and who are keen to explore some other fun areas nearby, I’d suggest trying out a day tour like this sightseeing experience. Not only does it include stops at the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple and the mud pools, but also the Garden of the Sleeping Giant (more info coming below!).

We’ve heard great things about the tour guides who run this experience, so be sure to ask plenty of questions about Nadi and all of the places you are stopping at. All in all, the entire tour lasts around 4 hours, includes all of your entrance fees, and costs $82 USD per person. If this sounds right up your street, then don’t forget to secure your place on the tour here.

6. Wander the Garden of the Sleeping Giant

So big!

Right next to the mud pools is the incredible Garden of the Sleeping Giant. This garden is gorgeous and has literally thousands of orchids around to check out. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, it’s also a fascinating place to simply relax and feel at peace. Just like the mountain next to the gardens, which looks like a “sleeping giant” that’s peacefully resting. It’s easy to see where this garden got its name!

When I was there, I spent about an hour wandering the different trails and watching hundreds of frogs jump around on the lily pads. After my walk, I also got to enjoy some delicious and fresh fruit juice (included in the entrance price!).

The entrance fee to the garden is $18 FJD, so it’s pretty inexpensive if you decide to visit on your own. You can also visit it as part of the mud bath and sightseeing tour mentioned above!

7. Go to the Fiji Culture Village

The culture in Fiji is one of the top reasons to go!

When I first heard about the Fiji Culture Village, which is a mock village set up just outside of Nadi, I was a little skeptical. I mean, how authentic can a mock-up village be when it comes to showcasing Fijian culture? Now, having visited twice (and planning to go back!), it’s easily one of my favorite activities I’ve done while in Fiji.

The village is filed to the brim with heart and soul, showing visitors the traditional Fijian ways of life, including a whole host of interesting activities, like weaving, firemaking, and even building demonstrations. I even got to meet the village chief and go inside some of the huts and temples.

The last time I visited, I went on this evening experience at the Fiji Culture Village with my mom, which turned out to be really special! After touring the village, we got to eat a traditional “lovo” meal (food cooked in an earth oven) while enjoying a show of dancers, singers, and fire dancers. My favorite part of the evening experience had to be the fire dancers though – they are sooo talented.

If you prefer, the Fiji Culture Village also offers this afternoon experience that includes lunch instead of dinner. The only difference is that you’ll miss out on the fire dancers, which is a bit of a shame, but if you’re on a tight schedule, it’s still tons of fun!

I now can easily see why visiting the Fiji Culture Village happens to be one of the most popular things to do in Nadi. At $77 USD per person for the night tour and $64 USD for the day tour, I’d say it’s also very reasonably priced and includes food, and even pick-up from most hotels.

For families or those just simply interested in Fijian culture, this is a great (and unique) experience to have in Fiji! For more information on our cultural village experience, check out our guide.

8. Watch a Fire Show

Wow!

If you know anything about Fiji, you’ll know that it’s famous for its incredible fire dancers! When night comes, the dancers put on a unique show right in front of your eyes as they spin poles lit with fire. It blows my mind how they manage to stand the heat, but it sure does make for a thrilling show.

When it comes to seeing a fire show for yourself, there are a few options. You can go to a paid show such as the one we mentioned at the Fiji Culture Village, or you can try and catch a free one in a bar or restaurant.

If you’re staying in Nadi, two famous restaurants that often have fire shows are Mamacita Mexican Restaurant & Bar and Smugglers Cove’s Ghost Ship Bar & Grill. Just be sure to double-check with them when the shows are on, as we’ve found that the times can often change!

A lot of hotels also offer fire shows. We saw one when we stayed at First Landing Beach Resort and it was just as good as at the cultural village! So double-check if a fire show is offered when you’re booking a hotel if this is high on your “must-do” list.

From my own experience though, I’ve found that not all fire dancing shows are as good as the next, so if you want to see the really impressive ones, then I’d recommend going with the paid experience like at the Fiji Culture Village.

9. Visit South Sea Island

The South Sea Island is a tiny island only 30 minutes from Port Denarau. Although tiny, it’s certainly not lacking in beauty and things to do! Visiting here is an absolute must when you’re in Fiji and it’s great for families or those looking for an adventurous day of island exploration. 

We loved our experience on this South Sea Island tour. Since it’s part of the Mamanuca Islands, it didn’t take us long to get there from Port Denarau, which gave us more time on the island!

We swam in the saltwater pool, explored the nearby lagoons in a kayak, and went snorkeling – we were busy! You can also check out what’s going on underwater by taking a ride in a semi-submersible vessel. And if you have little ones, there is a complimentary kids club! So you can relax while the kids play!

But really, we simply enjoyed hanging out in the goregous turquoise water with friends! You can be as active or relaxed as you want. This full-day tour costs $115 USD and you can upgrade to include an introductory or certified scuba dive on the island. If you’re certified, you’ll even get to explore a nearby shipwreck!

There’s also a yummy barbecue lunch and complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks. Hotel transfers from Nadi, Denarau, and the Coral Coast are also included, so everything is taken care of. We know you’ll have a great time here like we did, so

10. Eat a Traditional “Lovo” Meal

A lovo is cooked in a traditional earth oven.

A “Lovo” is a super tasty meal that’s actually cooked in an earth oven, AKA under the ground! This is a traditional method of cooking in Fiji, and it is still used today (and we’re so glad it is). Meat, vegetables, and potatoes are placed on hot rocks and covered with cloth and leaves to cook, helping to trap moisture and make the food unbelievably tender… My mouth is watering now just remembering it!

Many day excursions include the “Lovo” as lunch or dinner, and it’s honestly always such a hit. You can expect to have a huge selection of fish, chicken, beef, potatoes, cassava, and vegetables to choose from. If you’re vegetarian, I’d always suggest getting in touch with the event organizers beforehand, as they usually cater for these dietary requirements too.

After the food is done cooking, you normally watch them uncover it from the ground. This is a unique and memorable experience you can really only enjoy in Fiji. Once the food is uncovered, it is placed on a table as a buffet-style meal for everyone to tuck into!

11. Try Kava

Me, trying “Kava” for free at a hotel bar/restaurant!

Of course, one of the most important things to do while you’re in Fiji is to learn a little bit about the local culture! There are tons of cultural activities to try out (as you’ve probably already noticed!), one of the best ways you can do this is by attending a traditional Kava ceremony.

So, what exactly is Kava? Well, it’s a traditional Fijian drink that is made from a ground-up plant root (Piper Methysticum) which is mixed with water. Traditionally, only village chiefs drank Kava. But nowadays, Kava is consumed at celebrations or even just socially with friends. In Fiji, alcohol is very expensive, so Kava is the local people’s substitute.

Honestly, Kava tastes a little like muddy water or really bad tea, so you’re definitely not drinking it for the taste! After having a few glasses I started to feel rather chilled out and relaxed as Kava tends to have this side effect.

You’ll find ample opportunities to try Kava, whether it’s on a tour, at an event, or at your hotel. Almost every hotel we’ve stayed at in Fiji held a Kava ceremony on certain nights, so we actually got to try it for free (bonus!). You can also buy Kava at stores and mix it up for yourself, but I wouldn’t recommend it as the Kava Ceremony is all part of the fun. It’s not uncommon to find it though!

12. Visit the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple

Nestled away on the southern side of Nadi, you’ll find a huge and colorful Hindu temple that is open to visitors! Hinduism is a very popular religion in Fiji due to the large Indian influence here, and this temple is a great place to stop for a few minutes and explore.

Across centuries, many Indians have immigrated to Fiji and their culture still lives on in Fiji today. In fact, Indian food is some of the most popular food in Fiji (more on that later!).

The temple has a $5 FJD entry fee and we only spent about 20 minutes exploring. Keep in mind, that you’re allowed to take pictures of the outside but not the inside. Also, ladies must have their knees covered but don’t worry if you are wearing shorts, as they will give you a sarong to use for free.

Many local tours of Nadi also include the temple as one of the stops, like this half-day experience which also visits the incredibly beautiful Garden of the Sleeping Giant and the local mud pool hot springs! At just $82 USD per person, this tour includes hotel pickup, drop-off, and all entrance fees, making it a pretty affordable way to get to visit some of Nadi’s best attractions!

Although just a quick activity, the temple is one of the most popular things to see in Nadi and well worth adding to your Fiji bucket list.

13. Chase waterfalls and culture

Magic Waterfall!

If you’re looking for a family-friendly and stress-free activity that combines outdoor adventure and cultural experiences – this full-day waterfall and village tour is an outstanding option. With everything included you and your family are free to enjoy a day of Fiji’s natural and cultural wonders!

We had a fantastic experience on this tour. Obviously, we love the outdoors, so that was an easy draw for us. But the cultural side was actually our favorite part.

We started with an early morning pick-up and a 3-hour drive in a comfy mini-van (I promptly went back to sleep!). But, adventure soon began as we hopped in a motorboat and cruised up the Navua River. Here, we saw lots of wildlife, little villages tucked into the rainforest, waterfalls, and other beautiful natural features. At the end of the ride, we were treated to the “Magic Waterfall” where we jumped in and took a refreshing swim – and yes, it was as beautiful as it sounds!

As I said, the cultural element was our favorite part of this experience. We took a bamboo raft to a village where the locals welcomed us with open arms! We saw time-honored dances and ceremonies, heard their stories, and even tried our hand at painting. But of course, the best part of a new culture is food so we tried a traditionally prepared “Lovo” lunch and enjoyed the company of our new friends!

It was an experience we still reminisce about today.

This tour runs most days except Sunday. The pick-up time and cost depend on which city you are staying in, ranging from $87 USD to $107 USD. It includes lunch, all of the activities listed, transportation, and your wonderful local guide! It was a worthwhile day in our books.

14. Enjoy the BEST Sunsets

This is the life!

So, where does Fiji rank when it comes to countries with the best sunsets? Well, I won’t lie … For me, it’s right near the top of the list! With beaches as gorgeous as this, you simply couldn’t visit Fiji and not enjoy multiple sunsets over the water. Grab a hammock or a cocktail (or both) and enjoy the show from just about any beach in Fiji.

A small tip from a veteran sunset seeker… my favorite way to experience the best sunsets is by boat! We went on this amazing sunset and dinner cruise which, as the name suggests, is all about enjoying a beautiful dinner while the sun makes its slow (but undeniably beautiful) descent over the horizon.

If nothing else, I have to recommend this cruise for the amazing dinner alone. It’s made up of 3 super tasty courses off the à la carte menu, from perfectly cooked peppercorn steaks to the juiciest chicken sautéed kebabs I had in Fiji! With pickup and drop-off from Nadi and Port Denarau hotels included, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy a beautiful meal with the sunset.

This sunset cruise costs just $80 USD per person – however, you can upgrade to have lobster for dinner if you’re feeling extra fancy!

But the truth is, no matter where you enjoy the sunset, be sure to do so! I watched the sunset every single night while I was in Fiji and was never disappointed!

P.S. – If you’re an early riser, checking out the sunrise is a great idea too.

15. Drink Cocktails Made With Fresh Local Fruit

Delicious!

In Fiji, you can get some really delicious fruit cocktails. But what sets these cocktails apart from many that you could order back at home is that they use fresh fruit! No artificial flavors or sugary syrups here, just blended fruit, ice, and plenty of alcohol!

A “Fiji-style” piña colada was my personal favorite. However, I’d recommend indulging in various flavors of mojitos or tasting a typical mai tai. Most hotel bartenders also have their own tropical creations that you should ask to try as well!

Tip: Almost everywhere in Fiji has happy hour deals where you can snag discounted cocktails. Watch out for these deals in restaurants and bars near you to save up to 50%. Most of the time, happy hour is around 4 or 5 pm.

16. Ride an ATV in the Jungle

So much fun!

There’s always time for a selfie!

Riding a quad through the jungle in Fiji is something many tourists sadly miss out on. This is such a shame as it’s one of the best ways to experience Fiji’s incredible wilderness! Plus, we had a seriously fun time doing it. While you’re pumped through with adrenaline, you’ll enjoy some of the best scenic views around the island.

Quad tours typically depart from Nadi or nearby and tour through the jungle, on beaches, and even up into the mountains for panoramic views! It is one of those activities the whole family will love. Just be sure not to wear your nicest clothing as you will likely get very muddy.

This particular quad tour is really popular among tourists and having tried it ourselves, it’s easy to see why! Lasting around 2 to 3 hours, we easily traveled down routes that other vehicles would have a hard time with. Dan and I had such an adventure and even got some free photos included as part of the tour too.

At $164 USD per person, this is on the pricier side. But if you’re looking to splash out a little on a really unique experience, then this quad tour could be just right for you!

17. Go on a Catamaran Cruise

Spending a day cruising around on a catamaran is one of the most fun things to do in Fiji on the water. You’ll enjoy gorgeous island views like this one again and again – it seriously never gets old!

Most full-day catamaran cruises include lunch, lots of drinks, as well as stops for swimming and snorkeling. Of course, the beauty of this is that you can do pretty much exactly what you want, even if that’s simply chilling out on deck and watching the world go by.

The majority of catamaran day trips depart from Port Denarau not far from Nadi. However, some also offer hotel pick-up at hotels as far as the Coral Coast. Typically, you can expect to pay somewhere around $100 to $150 USD for a full-day cruise including lunch.

If you’re wondering where to start, I have to recommend this South Sea cruise, which is one I did and loved! One of my favorite parts has to be the small group size – there’s a maximum of 15 people per trip. Add that to the fact that this is an amazing 78-foot (24-meter) catamaran, and there’s tons of space to go around.

The scenery was so amazing too! I must admit, I was sitting down on a beanbag for a while and may or may not have had a little nap (thanks warm tropical breeze!), but I also got to go snorkeling in the coral reefs and really enjoyed the buffet lunch too. There are so many reasons we consider it one of the best cruises in Fiji and you can read our full review here!

Tickets for this cruise cost $120 USD per person and include lunch, transportation, and drinks. Of course, there’s so much more this cruise offers too and the best way to experience it is to try it out for yourself!

18. Try Standup Paddleboarding

It was actually way harder than it looks!

The calm ocean waters around Fiji make for the perfect place to try standup paddleboarding. The truth is, it isn’t as easy as it looks! But if you try in a calm bay, then you’ll get the hang of it a lot faster.

Most remote islands have standup paddleboards available for hire, and sometimes they’re even free to use. If you choose to spend a couple of nights on a remote island, you might be able to get some practice in and get really good! 

19. Eat Kokoda (and even learn to cook it!) 

kokoda in fiji
Kokoda is one of the most popular things to do eat in Fiji. I love it, it’s soooooo good!

Kokoda is a traditional fish dish that is very popular in Fiji. It is similar to ceviche in the sense that the fish is “cooked” in very citrusy lime juice but with a Fijian twist – it’s served in a coconut sauce! To me, the coconut juice balances out the citrus and adds a sweet taste (which is super tasty).

Kokoda is often served with Cassava (like fries but made with Yuca instead of your typical potato). It’s often a starter or appetizer and ranges in price depending on the type of fish used, portion size, and how fancy the restaurant is in general.

If you’re really into food, then I recommend actually learning to cook Kokoda and possibly other Fijian dishes in a cooking class, like the one offered as part of this Robinson Crusoe island tour. Cooking classes are always a lot of fun, and you get to bring new recipes and knowledge back home with you too! We actually tried our hand at cooking this dish on this exact same tour, and while we weren’t anywhere near chef-quality – I think it turned out pretty good!

20. Learn some History at the Fiji National Museum

History buffs and museum lovers listen up! Yes, Fiji has a national museum and I actually went there. Most people tend to skip the Fiji Museum because, let’s face it, most people come to Fiji to relax on the beach or enjoy the ocean. But Fiji actually has a lot of fascinating history and culture to share that you can learn all about at the National Museum of Fiji.

This museum is located in the city of Suva, Fiji’s capital city. Although the museum is one of the best activities in the city, many people never make it to Suva simply because it’s located about a 4-hour drive from Nadi. However, if you do make your way to this side of the island, the museum is a place you really should visit.

I myself am not typically a huge fan of museums. However, this one was pretty interesting with lots of artifacts and explanations everywhere. It costs $5 FJD to enter and took me about an hour to wander through. With that said, if you read all of the information you could easily spend a lot longer there.

Tip: The museum is actually located in some gorgeous botanic gardens that are worth a walk through too! These gardens are called the Thurston Botanic Gardens, and although I personally don’t think they are worthy of being included on this list of the best things to do in Fiji, it is a nice side trip if you’re already visiting the museum.

21. Eat Indian Food

Indian curry is super popular and tasty in Fiji!

Okay, so this one might sound kind of weird. You’re probably wondering why I recommend eating Indian food as opposed to Fijian food in Fiji. Well, the truth is, eating Fijian food is a pretty obvious thing to do, so I thought I would switch it up a bit and tell you to try something you might not have known about. 

Fiji actually has a long history of Indian immigrants, which means that Indian culture is very prevalent. You’ll see Hindu temples, like the Sri Siva Subramaniya temple, all over the place, as well as restaurants serving curries, papadams, naan bread, and a selection of Indian food.

Honestly, outside of India itself, Fiji is probably the next best country to eat authentic Indian food! 

Most of the time, Indian dishes are quite cheap in comparison to Western dishes or Fijian dishes with seafood. You also don’t need to go to an actual Indian restaurant to have Indian food, and you’ll typically find a selection of curries on the menu at most restaurants all around Fiji! 

If you do fancy going to an Indian restaurant though, you should definitely try out Red Pepper in central Nadi. It is located just off Queens Road (the main road that runs through the city), so it’s really easy to reach by taxi from anywhere in the city.

I had some of the most amazing naan bread here, and the main dishes were really good too! Most mains range from $10 – $20 FJD, so go ahead and pick a few for an authentic Indian experience!

22. Visit Kula Wild Adventure Park

If you’re looking for a fun activity to keep the little ones entertained (or maybe you’re a big kid at heart!), then you’ll definitely want to stop by Kula Adventure Park. They really have it all, from waterslides to canopy adventures including ziplining, parks, walking trails, and canopy walks, as well as interactive animal experiences!

Now I must admit, adventure parks usually aren’t my thing (I know, I know!), so I didn’t stop by the last time I was in Fiji. However, I’ve heard from lots of people with kids that the park is a great way to spend a day in Fiji and definitely tires the kids out by the end of the day!

If you fancy this epic jungle adventure, you can purchase your tickets ahead of time to help skip the queues. Tickets cost $27 USD per adult (12+) and $13 USD per child (3-11) – which really isn’t bad for all the fun activities here! I recommend buying your tickets online ahead of time, as it’s been known to have rather long wait times at the park.

Kula Adventure Park itself is located on the Coral Coast which is on the southwest portion of Viti Levu. It’s about a 1 hour and 20-minute drive from Nadi, right along the highway, so it’s pretty straightforward to get there.

23. Ride in a Helicopter on a Scenic Flight

A helicopter ride is one of those “once in a lifetime” experiences!

There is no better way to view the gorgeous ocean and thousands of tiny islands that make up Fiji than from the sky. From a helicopter, you can see the islands, the mountains, and just Fiji’s overall beauty from a birds-eye perspective! 

This helicopter tour combines a scenic flight with both ATVing and a visit to a remote Fijian village for the ultimate adventurous day out! If you’re looking for a thrill (we always are!) I think this is your best option in Fiji!

Kicking off from Nadi, the 4-hour tour begins with a full safety brief for riding the ATVs, which is also beginner-friendly – so don’t worry if you’ve never ridden one before! ATVs are always such a blast, but make sure to wear some clothes you don’t mind getting a bit muddy.

Riding through the pine forests and past sugar cane fields, you’ll explore the scenic Nausori Highlands in a super fun and unique way. We always have such an amazing time when going out on an ATV, and we’re sure you will do too! But of course, the star of the show has to be the helicopter ride, and you’ll want your camera for this one.

Tickets for the tour cost $423 USD per person and include all activities and some light refreshments. Just note, that you’ll need to have a driver’s license to ride, as you’ll be spending some time out on the roads too.

24. Shop and Eat at Denarau Island

Port Denarau is a lovely place.

If you’re heading over to visit or stay on a remote island in Fiji, chances are you’ll be saying “Bula” to Denarau Island, home to Viti Levu’s popular port!

You know how every great vacation story has a dash of glamour and a pinch of luxury? Well, Denarau has been serving up this recipe for years now, with swanky resorts, mouth-watering foodie hotspots, and tons of vibrant boutique shops to explore. It’s no surprise then that many travelers choose to stay on Denarau Island for the Fiji holiday.

But even if you aren’t staying on Denarau Island, the port is well worth a visit for a few hours anyway. We had a great time strolling along the main stretch and soaking in the mesmerizing marina views. You just have to drop by for a sunset here, and the food also isn’t as expensive as we thought it’d be either.

We stopped by Sails@Denarau, which turned out to be a real gem for foodies! They’ve got a pretty extensive menu featuring global dishes and local favorites, and with a beautiful waterfront location, it’s also THE place to be for a sunset dinner. Mains here are around the $40 FJD mark, so again, not too expensive at all.

To me, Denarau is one of those must-visit places in Fiji and somewhere everyone should check out, even if it is just for an hour or two.

25. Visit a Local Market 

A stand at the Nadi Produce Market
Look at that fresh fruit!

Without a doubt, the best place to find fresh fruit and veggies in Fiji is at one of their local markets. This is where the locals shop for groceries and there is no reason why you can’t visit! Load up on some local fruit to bring back to your hotel with you for a little snack later on. I also love visiting local markets, as it gives you a more authentic feel rather than the main tourist activities.

In Nadi, don’t miss the Nadi Market – it’s the biggest in town and a real treat for the senses. Over in Suva, the Suva Municipal Market is your go-to spot for fresh produce.

But these markets aren’t just foodie heavens – they’re treasure troves of unique souvenirs too. I’d recommend grabbing a little memento of your fabulous Fiji vacation or a special gift for someone back home at the Nadi Handicraft Market! I got the most beautiful handmade jewelry here, and also loved the Fijian tapa cloth and traditional wooden carvings.

And the best part? You’ll be rubbing elbows with the friendliest locals around. I’ve always found visiting markets to be a fantastic chance to strike up a conversation, learn more about Fijian culture, and even pick up a few local phrases!

26. Adventure on a River

Despite what you might think, Fiji isn’t all about the ocean! In fact, there are plenty of rivers around too which are such a blast to explore. On the main island of Viti Levu, there’s a huge range of river adventures that are sure to get the adrenaline pumping.

One of the most popular activities in Fiji is river-tubing. On the beautiful Navua River, you can join a half-day tour where you’ll slip into a tube and drift down the river, surrounded by some of the most amazing scenery you can imagine!

So, why do we love river tubing tours so much? Well, for me, it’s all about connecting with the pure, untouched side of Fiji, breaking away from the usual beach lounging and experiencing the country’s vibrant ecosystem up close. I also grew up floating down the goregous rivers in Canada, so it’s fun to do it in another country too!

Plus, this tour also includes a village visit and a traditional Fijian lunch – you’ll definitely be hungry after splashing around in the water! Tickets for this tour cost $81 USD per person and include hotel pickup, transportation, and the tubes, making your day easy!

If you fancy upping the pace, then this jet boat ride will be right up your street. It’s the perfect combination of high-speed fun with fantastic cultural immersion along the Sigatoka River. This is yet another unique and thrilling way to experience Fiji!

Your local guide will skillfully navigate the twists and turns while sharing fun and insightful stories about the area’s history. Just be sure to hold on tight during those thrilling 360-degree spins — they’re no joke! And remember, your waterproof camera or waterproof case will be your best friend on this high-speed adventure.

You’ll also have a chance to explore an authentic Fijian village, speak with warm-hearted locals, and generally gain a deeper understanding of their way of life. Sounds like a great time to us! For this 4 to 5-hour tour, tickets cost $137 USD per person – and totally worth it if you ask me!

27. Go Ziplining

I had so much fun!

Ziplines in Fiji are high above the jungle canopy and are sure to get your heart racing while also offering spectacular views! We’ve been ziplining all over the world, and this might be the most beautiful place we’ve done it.

I think this zipline experience is perfect for those who love to mix adrenaline with some natural exploration! This is actually the largest zipline in the South Pacific, so it’s a must-add to your itinerary. With eight giant ziplines to conquer and suspended bridges to traverse, I know you’ll be catching a thrill as you zoom around!

The tour isn’t just about the adrenaline rush though – it’s also an opportunity to immerse yourself in Fiji’s rich ecosystem. Between zips, your friendly guide will share interesting insights about the surrounding flora and fauna. Just make sure you remember it all, as there’s a 40-question test at the end (joking -ha)!

The entire experience lasts for about 5 hours and also includes a visit to a nearby cave, which we thought to be a super cool experience too. If you fancy taking some time away from the beach, this zipline tour is a memorable way to soak in the beauty of Fiji. Tickets start at $115 USD, depending on your pick-up location.

28. Take a Photo with the President’s Guard

In the city of Suva, you’ll find the president’s house. While you can’t go inside, you can wander around the outside and admire the building and grounds.

At the front gate, there is always a president’s guard. The guard does a march every 15 minutes, but other than that, just stands there protecting the gate. Tourists often visit here (myself included) to get a photo with the guard. He won’t speak to you or even acknowledge you for that matter, but it is okay to take a photo! Oh, and it’s free! 

Tip: The president’s house is located in Suva not far from the National Museum. Therefore, combining these two activities on a day trip is a great idea! 

29. Go Deep-sea Fishing

Deep-sea and game fishing is another unique experience you can have in Fiji. With the right gear and guide, you can catch some seriously big (and impressive) fish!

Some of the fish you might just get lucky enough to catch include marlin, mahi mahi, tuna, walu, and more. While some fish are catch-and-release, others you can take home with you! That’s right, once you’ve caught your prize, you can whisk it back to your hotel, where the chef can transform it into a mouth-watering meal for you.

We joined a private fishing charter with Malolo Fisher Sports and had not just any fishing experience, but a day of epic reef, deep-sea, and game fishing! The crystal-clear waters of Viti Levu are full to the brim with vibrant fish, so there’s a high chance you’ll be coming back with something. Don’t worry if you’re new to fishing either, as the friendly crew is on hand to give you all the tips and tricks you need to land your dream catch.

So, whether you’re an experienced angler or a first-timer, this private fishing charter promises an unforgettable day on the water, filled with action, excitement, and potentially, a tasty dinner! You also have a few options for how long you want the charter to be, starting from 4 hours all the way up to the full day. You can check prices and book your excursion on their website here!

30. Jump Out of an Airplane

The thing I love most about skydiving is that it’s a scenic flight experience and a thrilling activity all in one! I’ve been skydiving twice in my life, and Daniel actually solo skydives as a hobby – so we are big advocates of skydiving.

Now, you might be thinking, “Skydiving? That sounds terrifying!” But trust me, it’s an absolutely incredible experience that will make your heart race in the best possible way. It’s not every day you get to leap from a plane and free-fall through the sky! So if you’ve never given skydiving a shot, maybe it’s time to change that.

Skydiving in Fiji isn’t cheap though, and you can expect to pay over $300 USD for a jump. We did this 12,000 ft (3,658 m) jump and I loved the 45 seconds of freefall. And don’t worry if this is your first time, because your trusty tandem master will guide you every step (or rather, every leap) of the way.

The plane departs from Nadi, so this is another great activity if you’re staying in and around Nadi and Denarau. Tickets for the 12,000 ft drop cost $379 USD. Honestly, if you’ve always wanted to try this activity – I say go for it! You won’t find anywhere as beautiful!

31. Visit Natadola Beach 

Natadola Beach, Fiji
Natadola Beach, Fiji

Natadola Beach is known as the nicest beach on all of Viti Levu. In fact, many people say it is nicer than any of the beaches on the remote islands too, making Natadola one of the best beaches in all of Fiji! It is huge, has pristine white sand, and the water is crystal clear.

Natadola is located about an hour’s drive from Nadi, 45 minutes from the Coral Coast, or two hours from Pacific Harbor. For this reason, it is very easy to rent a car and drive yourself or even visit on a guided day trip.

This full-day tour is a fantastic way to explore the Coral Coast, especially if you’re short on time. I love that it’s a balance of Fijian culture, by visiting a local pottery village, a temple, and a fruit market, and those lazy beach vibes we all dream about when we come to Fiji! So while you won’t get a full day to relax at Natadola Beach, you’ll have a couple of hours to enjoy and tick it off your list! This tour is $114 USD per person and a great option if you don’t have your own transportation.

Alternatively, there are some really nice hotels right on the beach that are great places to stay. If you stay at Natadola Beach, you’ll be able to experience the beach when it is the least busy, first thing in the morning before all of the tourists arrive. 

Natadola Beach is free to visit. However, if you want a lounge chair and umbrella, you’ll have to negotiate a price with a vendor or buy something from one of the beachside restaurants.

Note: It is a beautiful beach, but do be warned, it is busy and lots of vendors walk up and down trying to sell things.

32. Drink Fresh Coconut Juice

A roadside vendor selling fresh coconut juice in Fiji,

Coconuts are everywhere in Fiji! During my time here, I practically ran on a diet of refreshing coconut juice, which, let me tell you, was a total lifesaver on those sizzling, humid days.

In Fiji, you’re never too far from a fresh, thirst-quenching coconut. Restaurants? Check. Hotels? Yup. Roadside vendors? Absolutely. Markets and beaches? You betcha. And with the price only amounting to a handful of change, it’s an absolute steal.

Just plop a straw in, and voila, you’re sipping on a tropical delight. So, when in Fiji, do as the Fijians do and embrace the coconut craze. You’ll be coconuts about it, I promise!

33. Visit a Fijian Village

Learn about basket weaving on a village tour.

There are many small villages in the remote areas of Fiji today. Lots of these villages live in traditional ways today. Tours have begun operating to these villages as a way to help them make income and even provide donations and goods brought by tourists.

The only way to visit any true village in Fiji is on a tour – you simply wouldn’t find them on your own, and likely wouldn’t be welcomed either. But with the right tour provider, you can have an ethical village experience in Fiji.

This traditional village tour isn’t just about sightseeing – it’s about sinking your toes into the true Fijian lifestyle. We were welcomed with ceremonies, which included songs, dances, and goregous traditional-styled clothing. I especially loved learning about their art and pottery, which has been a practice for many years, and they showed us all around the village.

But of course, the food was a highlight with all the fresh ingredients so commonly used in Fijian dishes.

Oftentimes, tours in Fiji can seem rather scammy or trying to upsell you. We’ve definitely experienced that in the past, but we didn’t here. Our tour guide, Navid, was sure to take care of us, and genuinely wanted to share his local culture with us. So we had a great experience!

You can read reviews and see all that this company offers here!

34. Stay in a Bure

A bure where I stayed for five nights and loved it!

Another super authentic Fijian experience is staying in a “bure”, which is a Fijian-style bungalow that many resorts have on offer as an option for accommodation. These bures are light, airy, and are usually on the beach with an outdoor shower. It’s a fun and authentic alternative and much more interesting than your typical hotel room.

The price of staying in a bure really depends on where you choose to stay in Fiji, and, of course, what time of the year you are visiting! Generally, May to October is the most popular time to visit (the weather is amazing at this time!), but of course, this means prices will be higher.

My top tip would be to head over either at the very start or end of the season, so you can find the sweet spot between great weather and low accommodation prices. That being said, here are a couple of my favorite resorts with bures that are perfect for a range of budgets:

Mantaray Island Resort

If you’re thinking about heading over to the Yasawa Islands, you can stay in a treehouse bure at Mantaray Island Resort start ing at $110 USD per night. Imagine your room being surrounded by lush jungle forest with the golden beach being just steps away – that’s Mantaray Island Resort!

There’s also an on-site restaurant that serves a whole variety of cuisines, from Fijian to European, as well as Indian and Asian. My favorite part had to be the desserts though, they were seriously on a whole other level – make sure to try their signature pumpkin pudding (you really won’t regret it).

Navutu Stars Resort

For something a little more luxurious, check out Navutu Stars Resort on the island of Yaqueta. The hotel is well-known for having a small number of rooms (just 9 beachfront bures in total), so you know you’ll be getting top-level personalized service throughout your stay! The bures here start from around $420 USD per night and include breakfast as well as fun activities like snorkeling, fishing, and more.

Tip: Bures are nice for couples too since they are so private. If you’re looking for an amazing resort for your honeymoon in Fiji, you can’t go wrong with choosing a place with a bure.

Where to Stay in Fiji

This place is just wow! Photo Credit: Beachcomber Island Resort

There are so many great areas to stay around Fiji. You can choose to stay on the main Island of Viti Levu or venture out to the smaller surrounding islands. With so many choices, it can be hard to narrow it down. To help, these are my top picks for each area in Fiji that fit a range of budgets.

Nadi – The Ramada

Located right on Wailoaloa Beach, the Ramada is the most luxurious hotel in this area. It features an exclusive pool and restaurant for guest use only. It is the tallest building in the area offering incredible views of the coastline and sunsets!

Because of its close proximity to the airport (only a 15-minute drive), many people stay here for a night before or after their flight. It’s a good place to spend some time before catching a ferry out to an island. A King Studio Room with a sea view goes for around $200 USD.

Check availability and book a stay at the Ramada here!

Port Denarau – Radisson Blu Fiji Resort

The Radisson Blu Resort is just stunning, and for what you get, the price is very reasonable too. This resort is just huge offering tons of activities for both families as well as couples. There is an adults-only pool as well as an area specifically for kids. It is beachfront and offers spa services as well.

Rooms here start from around $400 USD per night and range from standard hotel-style rooms with king beds or two queens, up to two-bedroom suites. Some rooms feature courtyard views while others have a view of the lagoon. All rooms have a balcony and minibar.

Check availability and prices at the Radisson Blue Resort here!

Yasawa Islands – Barefoot Manta Island Resort

Barefoot Manta Island Resort is perfect for those wanting a real island getaway experience without paying huge amounts of money. Surrounded by a vibrant protected coral reef, this is the best place to go for ocean lovers. You can even swim with Manta Rays just off the shore from May- October!

They offer dorm beds for only $29 USD a night. There are also private beachfront bungalows available starting at around $200 USD per night.

You can easily get to Barefoot Manta Island Resort on the Yasawa Flyer ferry that departs Port Denarau regularly. The ride should take about 3 hours.

Check prices and availability for Barefoot Manta Island Resort here!

Mamanuca Islands – Beachcomber Island Resort

Beachcomber Island Resort is one of the most popular island resorts to stay in Fiji. Its affordable pricing mixed with its close proximity to Viti Levu make it one of the best places to stay in Fiji.

You can reach the Beachcomber Resort from Port Denarau by riding the Yasawa Flyer ferry. The ride should take about 2 hours.

There are many different rooms and bungalows to choose from – something for every budget! Remember all these prices also include ALL your meals. Dorm beds go for as little as $60 USD per night, whereas you can get a standard twin room for $225 USD. For those willing to spend a little more, their Oceanfront Bungalow will cost about $250 USD per night.

Check prices and availability at Beachcomber Island Resort here!

Coral Coast – Maui Palms

Mixing beach life and luxury, the Maui Palms is perfect for those wanting a bit of pampering on their holiday. There are lots of on-site activities and the snorkeling right in front of the resort is great. Expect an infinity pool, games room, bar, restaurant, and beautiful ocean-view villas with private balconies!

The location on the Coral Coast means you don’t need a boat to get there but can still experience some of the tranquility and beautiful beaches you might find on the smaller islands. There are also a few restaurants nearby, so you won’t be confined to the hotel.

Rooms and villas here start at around $250 USD and up.

Check prices and availability for the Maui Palms here!

South Sea Cruises Fiji Review – Should You Trust Them With Your Cruise?

You mention you get seasick. I also do. I'm wondering how you found Seventh Heaven? I'm debating if it's worth going or will I feel it moving the whole time?

Destinationless Travel

Wednesday 21st of February 2024

Hey Liz,

On the actual platform it feels like you are on land. The water is extremely calm and the platform is tied tightly to the bottom of the ocean. However, the boat ride out there was a little rough and took 45 minutes. I took half a sea sickness tablet before and was ok. Overall though, I would suggest Malamala Beach club as another option as it's on land and the boat ride is smooth and very short. Or, the South Sea Salining Sabre Cruise is a catamaran and I did not get sick at all on that.

Thanks
