A leader in eco-tourism and a haven for water sports, decades as a tourism hotspot have taught Fiji a thing or two about what visitors are looking for. You'll find everything from rugged bush trekking and tours of traditional villages to world-class resorts in this idyllic location sandwiched between America, Asia and Australia.
To make the most of your time in Fiji, we recommend getting away from your resort and exploring the outlying islands; most notably the coral-fringed Mamanucas and Yasawas, which offer some of the most spectacular snorkelling and diving in the world. Heading inland on the vast Viti Levu and the garden island of Taveuni can be just as thrilling; splash downriver on a bamboo raft or trek through historic caves to discover Fiji's cannibal history. See? We told you there’s more to Fiji than it lets on.

When to go
With fairly consistent temperatures throughout the year, there's never really a bad time to visit Fiji. The country has two distinct seasons: wet and dry. The dry period from May to October is when most holidaymakers head to Fiji for comfortable temperatures, lower humidity and reduced risk of cyclones. We recommend only visiting in the wet season if you're prepared for the possibility of heavy rains interrupting scheduled activities. If you do travel then, be sure to visit the Mamanuca or Yasawa island groups, which are drier. If you're hoping to connect with the local culture during your visit, Fiji's multicultural population means there's always celebrations taking place – from Suva's lively Hibiscus Festival in August to Diwali and Christmas later in the year.
Airlines that fly to Fiji
- Air New Zealand
- Cathay Pacific
Nadi International Airport is Fiji's main gateway, but some flights also arrive at Nausori Airport near the capital Suva. Nadi airport is around six miles from Nadi and 12 miles from Lautoka, the second city, with transport being a combination of private transfers and airport shuttles to popular destinations.
Best time to fly
The dry and warm 'winter' is justifiably the best time to visit, if you're prepared to pay a premium, especially in June and July. The long Australian and New Zealand school holiday period from mid-December to the end of January is another busy period, especially because it’s also a time of year when Fijians are visiting relatives. The wet weather and risk of cyclones make November to April the low season, when crowds are smaller and flights are cheaper.
The flight from London to Nadi takes around 24 hours with one or two stopovers, which may be in North America, Asia or Australasia, depending on your route and airline.
