As a nature-made playground of jungle, water and wildlife, stepping off the sand and into a new experience is just as easy as stepping from your bure to the beach. Here’s an easy selection of low-key Fiji activities. 1. Catch the sunrise This beautiful phenomenon occurs every single day. If you have mountains, beach and water (of which Fiji is abundant in all three) you have the perfect conditions for an unbelievable sunrise. Wake early and rise while it’s still dark and the night is still. It’s a painful time to be awake when you’re on holiday mode, but it’s monumentally worth it. Grab a blanket and head to the beach just before the sun begins its ascent. From pitch black to sapphire blue, a purple glow hovers over the horizon before finally erupting into the hazy colours of a brand new day. HOT tip: Pack a picnic so you can complement the occasion with a feast of Fiji’s finest fresh fruit, home-made yoghurt and pastries. The brave can take a refreshing dip in the ocean. 2. Indulge in a hot spring It’s tough work catching rays and soaking your skin in ripples of Fijian waves. Such a brutal regime can play havoc with your skin. Head to Sabeto Hot Springs and discover the healing powers of hot mud and water. Apply a thick paste of mud from the top of your head to the tip of your toes and allow it to dry. Soak in mud pools, fresh water pools and a further three thermal springs. By the time you slide out of the steaming abyss you’ll be as polished as brand new brass. Add on a full body massage and you’ll feel like a brand new person. HOT tip: Just a 20-minute drive from Nadi, Sabeto Hot Springs make for an easy and affordable day trip. 3. Find waterfalls Dive into a fresh water swimming pool – a natural one – and dip your head beneath the waterfall at Bouma National park. A short walk from the park’s visitor centre, take a quick stroll off track and discover three Tavoro Waterfalls, all with natural swimming pools. HOT tip: At 24 metres high, the Lower Bouma Falls is the tallest of its three comrades and easily the most populous as it allows swimming. 4. Have an inland adventure Venture inland and you’ll be rewarded with rainforest, waterfalls and fascinating wildlife. Taking a long boat along Fiji’s Navua River, which runs through Viti Levu Island is widely considered one of the most jaw-dropping boat tours you can take. Lead by native Fijian tour guides, you’ll tackle light river rapids and the gentle currents of the Navua, stopping for village visits and traditional Kava ceremonies headed by the chief. Back on the long boat you’ll take-on the rapids downhill so be prepared for plenty of spray and a possible drenching. Having worked up a sweat, you’ll be treated to a cooling swim beneath a waterfall, before navigating the boat back to its base. HOT tip: Moderate fitness required. Combining a little trekking with a little rowing, tours meander through dense jungle, gorges and villages, deep into the Namosi Highlands. Click here for all our Fiji holiday deals.
