Reasons to Visit
Fiji is considered the most multicultural of all the South Pacific countries. Today Indigenous Fijians make up 50 percent of the country's population, while Indo-Fijians make up 45 percent. Indo-Fijians are descendants of Indian labourers brought to the islands by the British in the nineteenth century. There are also small groups of Europeans, Chinese and other Pacific Island minorities.
Fiji, with its warm clear waters and its abundance of reef life offers some of the worlds most spectacular diving. Diving is the best way to discover Fiji’s richest diversity of fauna, with hundreds of species of magnificently coloured and fantastically shaped hard coral found within the reefs and protected lagoons as well as parrot fish, clown fish sting rays, barracuda and reef sharks.
Yaqona drinking otherwise known as Kava is a big part of Fijian life and is in fact the national drink. The Kava plant is an infusion prepared from the root of the pepper plant. It is also a mild narcotic and after a few drinks one may feel a slight numbness of the lips!
Kayaking is one of the fastest growing activities in Fiji. Sea kayaking is a great way to explore the many beautiful Fijian islands and river kayaking is an excellent way to discover the fascinating rainforests of the Northern Islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni.
The Meke is a traditional Fijian dance performance that enacts local stories and legends. Men, women and children all participate in the Meke, which is a combination of dance and repetitive rhythmic chanting.
Snorkelling in Fiji is simply breathtaking! With its amazing coral reefs, diverse array of marine life and year round warm clear waters it’s something that you simply must try whilst visiting this fascinating destination.

For an off the beaten track, unique Fiji experience you cannot beat the Tui Tai. It fuses together culture, adventure and diving in the pristine waters of Northern Fiji heading off the beaten track for a truly authentic experience.
The tour takes you north through the beautiful hinterlands of Fiji, journeying via farms and coconut plantations.
Taveuni, formerly known as Somosomo, is the third-largest island in Fiji and is often thought to be the most beautiful.
Vanua Levu is rugged, unspoilt and is still off the beaten track. Bustling, colourful local markets and a large indigenous population make Vanua Levu the perfect combination of the tropical island paradise and South Pacific culture.
Formerly a place feared for its cannibals, the Fijian archipelago is a scatter of islands with verdant mountains rising over turquoise lagoons and perfect beaches. The locals are friendly now too!
