Famous for its soft coral diving, white sand beaches and pristine natural environment, Fiji is a leader in eco-tourism. It offers itineraries in what are known as out-islands — those farthest away from civilisation.

Fiji has 333 tropical islands with over 80% of the population living on the two main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. It has a fascinating cultural fusion of Melanesian, Polynesian, Indian and Chinese mixed with a little European colonialism. It is home to the third longest barrier reef in the world declared a whale sanctuary to protect migratory species. The reef provides good protection from the ocean swell for most of its length, making it a quintessential place to visit.
