Ever dream of walking barefoot outdoors in the middle of winter...? Care for a dip in the ocean before the trade winds dry you off? The best thing about being in Fiji is that there is so much natural beauty within easy travelling distance.
Concerned about travelling in winter? Fiji's "winter" is actually the tropical dry season from May to October. The temperatures are cooler than usual (as in 24 degrees instead of 28 degrees Celsius). A Fiji Winter also means less rainfall, lower levels of humidity and less risk of tropical cyclones. Sounds pretty good all round actually!
Castaway Island - Three Loose Coconuts
Whether you're keen to explore Fiji by plane, helicopter, seaplane, bus, ferry, yacht, carrier, speedboat, jetski or hang-glider is really up to you.
Fiji's bustling tourism industry means that if there's a place you'd like to go to in the islands or an experience you'd like to have, someone, somewhere will probably already have staff working round the clock to deliver it.
Or you can always explore on your own timetable and see Fiji the way locals do... Travel through villages with the wind in your face on large open-air buses or jump location on the deck of an inter-island ferry sitting next to a pile of traditional mats and tapa on its way to market.
