PACIFIC ISLANDS - FIJI

MAKE A SPLASH IN FIJI.

Avatar   By Beth Allison - House of Travel Content Creative


Fiji is one of our favourite South Pacific destinations for water sports. Here are some of our favourite ways to get wet!

 

Mamanuca-Islands-3 

1  |  Diving in the Mamanuca Islands.

The waters surrounding the magical Mamanuca Islands are perfect for any level of diving. From stunning gardens of colourful coral to shipwrecks and thriving reefs, there are all sorts of underwater sights to be discovered. Newbie? Ask about diving lessons and instructor-guided excursions. Easily catch a ferry to the Mamanuca Islands from Nadi.

2  |  Snorkelling at South Sea Island.

South Sea Island is a tiny little speck of land located just a short ferry ride away from Port Denarau, near Nadi. 

Don't let the size deceive you — there are facilities to keep you comfortable all day — and the clear waters surrounding the sand are simply beautiful. Get close to an array of fish in all colours, shapes and sizes with a snorkel — or kayak around the island and see what you can spot from the surface.

3  |  Sharking diving at Beqa Island Fiji.

Get up close and personal — safely — with up to eight (!) different kinds of sharks. It's possible to spot Blacktip Reef Sharks, Whitetip Reef Sharks, Grey Reef Sharks, Silvertip Sharks, Tawny Nurse Sharks, Sicklefin Lemon Sharks, Bull Sharks and even the occasional Tiger Shark.

4  |  Laze away the day at Malamala Beach Club Fiji.

Turn the adrenaline way down with a lazy day at this fab beach club. Surrounded by Fiji’s famous crystal-clear waters, Malamala Beach Club is the world’s first to be located on its very own island — just 25 minutes from Port Denarau. Grab a day pass and treat yourself to white sand beaches, beachside cabanas, a resort style infinity edge pool and views across the Mamanucas from what just might be Fiji’s best-located island.

5  |  Swim with Manta Rays in the Yasawa Islands Fiji.

If you're lucky enough to swim with Fiji's manta rays, we predict you'll be talking about it for decades to come! Hitting the water with these majestic creatures has to be one of the most amazing experiences the natural world can offer. Elegant manta rays glide through the channel between Nanuya Balavu and Drawaqa Islands. You'll find them nearly every day from May to October when the tides change.

6  |  Feel like a 10 at Cloud 9.

Cloud 9 is Fiji's only two-story floating platform. You'll find an impressively stocked bar, DJ appearances, fantastic snorkelling and an Italian-style, wood-fire pizzeria — all surrounded by glistening turquoise water and views you won't believe. Pick up Cloud 9 transfers from Port Denarau Marina.

7  |  Dive Rainbow Reef and the Somosomo Strait in Taveuni.

The Somosomo Strait — running between Taveuni Island and Vanua Levu — has to be one of Fiji's best known dive destinations. You instantly see why this strait alone could earn Fiji its title of "Soft Coral Capital of the World." Currents are little more than a gentle helping hand along the way and guide you past some of the most stunning soft corals on Earth.
