Top 10 Islands in the World: Fiji | The friendly country of Fiji is every beach bum’s idea of heaven. One of Australia’s favorite tropical escapes, Fiji ticks all the paradise island boxes. Powdery white sand beaches, clear turquoise waters, teeming coral reefs, perfect weather … that’s all you need. Truly relaxed Fijian people welcome visitors with warm, friendly smiles. Conditions for diving, snorkeling, fishing, sunbathing – and in some areas even surfing – are all fantastic.
With more than 300 Fiji islands, it’s easy to find the perfect match, from luxurious celebrity hideaways and family-friendly resorts to the sublime Yasawa and Mamanuca group. And no matter how big your wallet, prawling under a palm tree and slipping into the silky warm seas is very rewarding to everybody. Fijians love young children, so this a fabulous destination for families looking to relax. Apart from a beach vacation you might also consider river rafting an option. It will be the most unique way of discovering rainforests at Upper Navua. The views are stunning. You can go through narrow passages and pass waterfalls, but still paddle around through some rafts.
Fiji is a diving mecca. An underwater world that is unadulterated, beautifully intact and teeming with life. With over 1,200 species of fish to admire, and a colourful display of both soft and hard corals, divers are spoilt by the sheer diversity of sea life on offer.
It might sound funny, but the Islands of Fiji are located in between France, New Zealand and Australia – territories :) Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific due to an abundance of forest, mineral, and fish resources. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange are its tourist industry and sugar exports. Fiji has a significant amount of tourism with the popular regions being Nadi, the Coral Coast, Denarau Island, and Mamanuca Islands. The biggest sources of international visitors by country are Australia, New Zealand and the United States, but China is catching up recently too.
