Fiji calls to mind visions of swaying palms, golden-sand beaches and endless blue skies – and this is exactly what attracts most visitors. The country is made up of more than 300 islands, strung out in the South Pacific. Most Fijians live on the main island of Viti Levu, but visitors should certainly head to smaller islands to experience the Fijian way of life first-hand. The people are warm and genuine, the seafood is fantastically fresh, and the rich waters are home to incredible sea life, so grab a snorkel and mask at the first opportunity.

The capital, Suva, is an increasingly modern city, and there are even traffic jams on rare occasions. On weekends, head to the rugby stadium or browse market stalls with the locals before you head back to the beach for more rest and relaxation.
