For a variety of reasons, Fiji is widely recognized as one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world. With stunning resorts, hotels and villas, and a mix of beaches, jungles, spectacular landscapes and luxurious luxuries, couples here can find just the right amount of seclusion and romance they need.

The island nation of Fiji, in the middle of the South Pacific, consists of 300 separate tropical islands, of which 110 are uninhabited. The major islands are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Life in Fiji is tranquil, the ideal honeymoon getaway that offers perfect beaches and quaint, welcoming villages. Fiji is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations for couples seeking a combination of seclusion along with plenty of activities on land and water.

Viti Levu is Fiji’s major island. It’s where the capital city is located, and 70 percent of Fiji’s population lives here. You will probably be in Viti Levu at some time during your Fiji honeymoon, as this is the island visited by most tourists. 

The island’s natural beauty is close to surreal. The rainforest is lush, the mountains beg to be explored, and the sand dunes and waterfalls are nature at its most stunning.  

Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island, is far more laid back and less touristy than Viti Levu. It is close to being undiscovered. Its major city, Labasa, consists of one street lined with shops. The beaches are a tropical paradise. There are small villages to visit, a magnificent coastline, more mountains, and waterfalls. This is one of the tropics’ hidden gems. Of course, the coastline has plenty of luxury resorts.

Fiji redefines paradise. Whether you are strolling your private beach in the moonlight or watching the sunrise in your over-the-water bungalow, the memories will be unforgettable.

About Fiji

Fiji’s warm climate found all year round, the luxurious spas and resorts add more to the overall appeal of Fiji for honeymooners. Couples may choose several exotic islands to explore while on their honeymoon in Fiji, including the Wakaya Island, Taveuni Island, The Yasawa Islands, Vanua Island, and many others.

Most of the Fiji islands formed due to volcanic activities nearly 150 million years ago. Owing to the abundance of forests, fish resources, and minerals, Fiji is included among the Pacific’s most developed economies.

Fiji culture is a vibrant fusion of the Indo Fijian, Asian, Fijian, and European traditions.  This fusion contributes to the language, social policy, beliefs, arts and crafts, architecture, sports, dance, music, and food. The local cuisine vastly comprises of seafood, taro, cassava, and a variety of other vegetables. Fiji is typically has a national identity that is multicultural and unique.

Fiji’s abundance of natural resources, such as sugar, minerals, offshore oil, forests, and fishing, makes it one of the most advanced economies of the South Pacific.

The capital of Fiji, Suva, is on the island of Viti Levu. It is one of the most sophisticated cities in the southern Pacific, making it an ideal Fiji honeymoon destination, or at least, a stop-over. Suva has approximately 100,000 citizens, or 75 percent of Fiji’s population. It is the cultural hub of the country. 

Suva has several museums that exhibit Fiji’s history and culture. One is the Fiji Museum, situated within the gorgeous Thurston Garden. This museum has archaeological items dating from over 3,700 years. It is a remarkable collection of ancient South Pacific culture.

The city has all the modern conveniences, from great shopping to an active nightlife. Dancing on tables by the end of the evening is not exactly uncommon. 

Kadavu is another important Fiji island, a mere 48 kilometers from Suva. There is little sophistication here. Kadavu has few roads and a number of mountains and picturesque cliffs. This is where you find isolation and quiet on your Fiji honeymoon. Mobile phone service is iffy here. The beautiful beaches are not overcrowded. All Kadavu’s resorts offer great diving opportunities. The resorts cater to all your needs, yet still have that “undiscovered Eden” quality. It’s a fabulous place to get away from it all. What a wonderful place to spend your honeymoon.

The Munderi Kadavu Bird Sanctuary is the best place for bird watching. There are 18,000 different birds, with 60 migratory species. The migratory birds make their presence known mainly during October and March. 

The underwater world at Kadavu is just as diverse as the one above water. Many different types of fish can be found here, especially by the Astrolabe Reef. 

Kadavu is well-known for its original pottery, an art they have practiced for almost a thousand years. Check out their unique pottery techniques and bring home some gorgeous souvenirs.

Nadi Town, Fiji’s third-largest community, has awakened from a sleepy village to a mecca for shopping and superb eating. Nadi Town is popular because it’s the nearest city to the airport. 

The beaches are uncrowded, and the inland mountains of Nausori Highlands are amazing. Away from the beaches, you will find one-of-a-kind hiking, old-fashioned villages with sugar cane fields, and spectacular – and refreshing – waterfalls.  

In all of Fiji, Nadi Town has the most resorts and hotels, as it is usually the first town people come to from the airport. The town is a center for both Muslims and Hindus. The Hindu Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple is the largest such house of worship in the Southern Hemisphere. Visitors are welcome to explore, but photographs are not permitted, and dress should be appropriate. 

 

Best Time to Visit Fiji

For honeymooners wanting to avoid huge tourist crowds, the best months are the low season months of January through March and September to November. This is the ideal time, particularly for couples.

June to August are the busiest months of the year for Fiji. Most vacationers come to Fiji during the school winter break of New Zealand and Australia. The Christmas and New Year season today sees resorts packed with families taking a holiday during the summer break of the Southern Hemisphere. 

Fiji has a number of fun festivals that you might wish to integrate into your Fiji honeymoon plans to make it even more special. The fact is, Fiji knows how to party. 

Bula Festival

In Nadi, the Bula festival happens in July for no other reason than the sheer joy of celebrating. There are floats, music, and dancing. The high point of the celebration is the election and crowning of Miss Bula. 

Hibiscus Festival

The Bula Festival is followed a few weeks later by the Hibiscus Festival in Suva. It is very similar to the Bula Festival, a day of music and parades topped off by the crowning of Miss Hibiscus.

Friendly North Festival

This celebration highlights Vanua Levu in the north, which sometimes gets overlooked in favor of Viti Levu. Vanua Levu struts its stuff in a week-long party in the city of Labasa. 

Lautoka Sugar Festival

Lautoka in Viti Levu is all about sugar. The Sugar Festival in September is filled with Bollywood performances and plenty of food stalls. Since this is Fiji, and Fiji loves its pageants, there will be a crowning of Lady Sugar, Mr. Sugar King, Miss Sugar Teen, and Miss Sugar Princess. How sweet it is.

Fijian International Jazz and Blues Festival

For four wonderful days in May, jazz rules in Fiji. Leading jazz musicians from around the world arrive in Port Denaru for some unforgettable musical performances.

New Year’s Eve 

Everyone in Nadi and Suva heads for the streets on New Year’s Eve for food, music, and fireworks. The bars are open all night, so prepare for a hangover on New Year’s Day.
