FIJI TRAVEL GUIDE

lgbt_small.png

Sunny skies, swaying coconut palms casting long shadows on sandy shores teasingly lapped by aquamarine waters, sails billowing in the gentle breeze, boats coming in laden with fresh sea bounty and long, cool drinks served by smiling islanders happy to have guests over - all that and much more is on offer in the Fiji Islands. Pleasure seekers, lotus-eaters and those with wanderlust in their blood head out to the Republic of Fiji - a tropical paradise of three hundred islands in the mid-South Pacific.

 

A melting pot of many Pacific and Asian cultures, the Fiji Islands reflects the laid back, easy-going nature and holiday ambience of the Pacific Islands. Well connected by international airlines, Fiji has a superb tourist infrastructure and is the perfect pleasure trip for snorkelers, scuba divers, swimmers and beach bums. Great food, a warm and friendly people and weather designed to please even the most difficult - add to that sun, sand and sea and its an all-time unbeatable combination.
