The Fiji Islands

 

'Paradise' - we know the word gets used pretty loosely but if it is appropriate for anywhere, it’s Fiji. There are over 300 islands set in warm crystal clear waters with palm fringed white sandy beaches, turquoise lagoons, fantastic coral reefs, lush rainforests and idyllic places to stay. Relaxation is big in Fiji but if you’re in the mood there are an incredible number of activities – trekking, amazing snorkelling and diving, local villages to visit, kayaking, sailing and even swimming with manta rays.

Fiji offers a diverse cultural experience with the Fijian and Indo-Fijian people – their food, their outlook and differing lifestyles. From remote island villages to the town of Nadi and the capital Suva, Fiji provides an endless string of amazing experiences. Our expertise and experience ensures you’ll leave with a grin as big as a Fijian’s!

Fiji Language

Almost everyone in Fiji speaks English - as it's the official language, but the Fijian language is preserved and widely spoken in many different dialects. Almost everyone in Fiji is bilingual and many Fijian terms are included in every day English usage. It is handy to know some of the more common words and phrases, and the Fijians will be delighted to know you picked up some of their language.
