My husband, 2 college kids and I are planning to visit Fiji for 9 days between Christmas and New Years. Would it make sense to try and stay in two different places and avoid the main island that you fly into? I hear the Mamanuca and Yasawa groups are great to visit. I can book a package through Costco at the Castaway resort and the Outrigger, but the Outrigger is on the main island, Viti Levu. Should I avoid Viti Levu? What is a good itinerary for 9 days? I am finding this challenging to…
We had planned to visit Navala with a rental car and keep driving all the way to south, until we have been reading that all or most of the interior is unpaved and requires a 4x4. Most of those reports were written a few years ago, though. Therefore, any improvements recently that made the possibility to drive there easier?
Warning. The dishonest company Exotic Holidays Fiji (represented by Kalo B. Baravilala) residing in Lautoka embezzled/stole our money and we are currently taking legal actions as well as having lodged a report to the police here in the Fiji. We can provide all the documents, money transfers and email communication to prove our claims if needed.
We are not some rookies and we even have worked in the tourism for many years. We contacted this company by email earlier this year from our country to…
I'm travelling to Fiji for two weeks in June, with a companion. We are attending a wedding in/around Nadi, so the trip is revolving around that area. We have 3 free days starting off (staying in/around Nadi, but can use the time however), then several days of wedding activities, then about 5 days to ourselves to go and do/stay anywhere.
From the research I've done, the consensus seems to be "get off of the main island." For the first 3 free days, I'm thinking of taking day cruises out…
After long years, I am heading back to visit Fiji and Samoa. Could anybody please enlighten me on some of the issues that worry me and that I have not got to deal with before?
a) I guess I would love to diverse my financial resources...as I do not have access to AUD or even FJD, is it okay to bring USD dollars ? If so, is it worth exchanging them at the airport or shall I wait to exchange them somewhere in Nadi?
b) I intend to purchase a sim card with internet data. Any tips on the…
Question for a period of about 15 years I went to Fiji about 7 times usually staying a month at a time and travelling to the outer islands and staying in small family owned resorts and having the time of my life.After about 30 years thinking of going back but when I look at the forums the resorts all look big and touristy and very expensive(we can afford it, but why).do those small resorts that might only have 3 or 4 bures still exist the ones we're looking for are on the smaller more difficult…
My brother and his family are heading to Denarau in a little over a week - does anyone know how badly hit Denarau itself was by the flooding caused by Cyclone Josie at the weekend and if it has badly affected travel safety around the area? From reports there was severe flooding near Nadi airport - but I can't find anything to suggest any ongoing disruptions? Thoughts also with the families of the victims who died in the flooding.
Thanks for any tips,
I'll soon visit Fiji to do a one-week kayak trip that involves long crossings in high seas.
I can do it in early May, end of May or end of June.
I know it's subjective, but can anyone comment which of those periods have calmer seas/surfs?
Many thanks & safe paddles.
Bula Vinaka, experts on Fiji,
I am thinking if anyone could help me here on this forum with the following.
My friends and I will be touring Viti Levu in May, running on a tight schedule. After we arrive from Caqalai Island in the morning (it's a Sunday), we need to head up along the northern shore road or through the inland and get to Rakiraki town by the end of the day. We will have hired vans or minibus with a driver.
We were seriously thinking about visiting Savulelele Waterfall and…
