Have you heard of 'Fiji time'? If you don't believe it, you've probably never experienced lazy days wading around blue lagoons, snorkelling soft-coral reefs and toasting away on your own private patch of sand.
As soon as you land in the heart of the South Pacific, time begins to slow down. A quick kip in your 5-star Fiji resort can make you feel like you've had a long night's sleep; just one afternoon spent in the clear-blue island waters can feel like a day's worth of R&R.

Fiji is an aquatic playground. Popular pastimes here include lapping up luxury at beachfront resorts, cruising and hopping through the Yasawa Islands. Try diving amid coral gardens and a host of marine life on the many reefs and surfing waves of legend off the Mamanuca Islands. Jet boating up the Sigatoka River is an option too.
A good pampering with delicious-smelling lotions can be had at spas within the upmarket resorts. For shopping, try the craft markets in Nadi or Suva. There are tours to traditional villages – tourism is important to the local economy – and you'll likely have the chance to try the local drink 'kava'. It looks like dirty water but has a taste, and sensation, all its own!
