Fiji has been in the tourism business for decades and the Nadi and Denarau island-hopping-escape itinerary has proven to be a winning formula. The underwater scenery is spectacular and the diving is accessible, while those hoping for cocktails on alabaster beaches are seldom disappointed.

Rugged highland interiors offer stunning landscapes, remote villages and treks through extinct volcanic craters. Giant waterfalls plunge through rainforest in well-maintained reserves while archaeological sites dotted throughout the country allude to Fiji's mysterious past.
