What to do in Fiji
The islands of Mamanuca and Yasawa offer warm, transparent waters and enjoy a warm sunshine. These are ideal sites for water sports and excursions. The archipelago of Mamanuca has many hotels, while the Yasawa islands are more wild and you will enjoy its lost villages and its beautiful beaches.
The city of Suva will seduce you with its old and attractive buildings and monuments in the port area, its lively waterfront, artisan stalls in the city center, its cafes and its municipal market. There are also nightclubs and modern bars that will welcome the fans of the nocturnal festival.
Navala is a village lost in the Nausori Highlands, with the traditional architecture, probably one of the most astonishing of Fiji: its constructions indeed meet the criteria of ancestral techniques with braided bamboos, thatched roofs, ropes made of vegetable fibers. A real journey through time.
Sawa-I-Lau, a limestone island, unlike those in the vicinity which are volcanic, has caves where one can admire engravings and paintings whose meaning and origin is unknown, as well as the date when they were conceived. One penetrates by swimming under the water, with a guide: reserved to the traveler in cold blood!
Attend a meke evening: traditional songs and dances, local dishes, walkers on embers.
Visit the natural parks, such as Colo-i-Suva, and meet the multicolored parrots, waterfalls amid thick forests and natural pools.
