Destination number seven is by far my most desired vacation. The Republic of Fiji, or simply known as Fiji, has postcard perfect islands with white sandy beaches and tropical weather year round. I mean c’mon, this is the ideal vacation for two on a honeymoon or a romantic getaway in general. Although, I’ve heard it can be very pricy because many things have to be imported, it still tops my list of places to go before I die.
Seventh stop: Fiji Islands!
Fiji Islands consist of 333 islands, which over 100 are inhabited. Most of the islands are clustered around two main large islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. The small island of Rotuma is isolated in the north and inhabited by people of Polynesian descent.
A bungalow perched in the crystal-clear waters is the ultimate dream. These over water rooms are on stilts over a lagoon or just offshore. Most have platforms that offer direct access to the water for swimming or to watch the sunset. Pure perfection for any honeymoon or romantic getaway, if you ask me!
Ever wondered what a water safari was like? Wonder no more. Fiji’s Sigatoka River Safari will transport you deep into the Fijian interior aboard a custom-built jet boat. Your guide will introduce the rich culture of the Fijian people as the adventure begins in the coastal town of Sigatoka. Traveling upriver, one will be left in awe by the stunning natural scenery until arriving at the designed village. A village guide will present you to the community and then you will experience village life firsthand.
Have you ever wanted to do a backflip into at the top of a waterfall into the lagoon below? Uh, yes! A tour called Adventures in Paradise Fiji will give you that opportunity. After visiting with a village chief and partaking in authentic ceremonies, a traveler can enjoy an exhilarating dip in the waterfall lagoon. On top of that, the locals teach you how to husk a coconut.
If you’re seeking an experience filled with Fijian customs, culture, and cuisine then Robinson Crusoe Island may be the place for you. The island is a part of the secluded Fiji Beach Resort, which has an assortment of free activities to enjoy. A few Fijian traditions that will enrich any trip are fire and knife dance shows, basket making, dancing under the stars, bonfires, and kava ceremonies.
Whether you’re on your honeymoon or seeking a serene getaway, Fiji offers plenty for couples. I can’t wait to go!
