As a country of Oceania, the simple evocation of Fiji carries with it the promise of heavenly islands, idleness in a lagoon against a backdrop of azure sky, idyllic white sand beaches bathed in turquoise waters... and the cliché is quite justified. A stay in this corner of the South Pacific with more than three hundred small islands - from the beautiful Viti Levu to Vanua Levu, the well-guarded Lomaitivi archipelago and Taveuni, and of course the Mamanucas and Yasawas islands - gives the feeling of being in a postcard. What if that's all it was? The inhabitants of these mountainous expanses covered with tropical forests where the ocean is everywhere are incredibly welcoming, living almost timelessly, smiling, proud of their country and their culture. Eldorado of surfers with the most beautiful beaches and destination of choice for honeymoons, family trips, or a diving trip in the coral reefs, the sun shines all year round on virgin and majestic territories through which the Fiji tourist guide will accompany you. Have a nice trip to the other side of the world under the coconut trees!
