Nadi, Suva & Viti Levu
Viti Levu, the largest of the Fijian islands, squats roundly and self-assuredly in the centre of the islands it governs. It wields considerable power and is the pivotal point about which politics, commerce and industry revolve. It is also where roughly three-quarters of the population resides. From Nadi, Fiji’s sunny waterside gateway, the Queens Road hugs the Coral Coast.
The Mamanuca & Yasawa Groups
Welcome to Fiji’s glittering crown jewels – the Mamanuca and Yasawa Groups. Like a string of pearls the 20 or so picture-perfect coral atolls and islands of the Mamanucas arc west through the large lagoon formed by the Malolo Barrier Reef and Viti Levu. It’s a treasure trove of surf breaks, sea turtles, reef sharks and vast schools of multicoloured tropical fish.
Vanua Levu & Taveuni
Vanua Levu (Big Island) and Taveuni look like a surrealist rendition of a mountainous, waterfall-lush rainforest lined with cerulean coasts. Vanua Levu’s main settlement Labasa is a dusty patchwork of sugar cane and copra plantations but other than that, nature reigns.
Kadavu, Lau & Moala Groups
This is where you wish you were right now. Remote and authentic yet easily accessed from Viti Levu and home to comfortable, ecofriendly resorts, Kadavu blends Fiji’s best assets. As your plane lands on a tiny airstrip surrounded by luminescent sea, volcanic peaks and intense forest, you’ll feel like an adventurer.
