If your ideal vacation entails seeing the unique natural wonders your destination has to offer, then Fiji is a fitting locale for your getaway. The island is chock full of stunning sights, from spectacular waterfalls and lush rainforests to shimmering waters teeming with diverse marine life. The only challenge? Fitting it all in. If you're wondering what to do in Fiji on your next romantic getaway or family vacation, then you'll definitely want some insight into these sightseeing activities.
Without a doubt, one of the top 5 things to do in Fiji is visiting this breathtaking waterfall nestled in the jungles of Savusavu. After making a 20-minute hike, cool off by taking a dip in the natural pool at the base – or, if you're feeling adventurous, boldly take a dive from the top. In addition to wearing a swimsuit under your clothes and a pair of comfy closed-toed shoes, we suggest you pack a picnic to enjoy while you soak up the waterfall's natural beauty.
Savusavu Bay Mangroves
Looking for some amazing things to do in Fiji that can have a positive environmental impact? There's hardly a better way to learn about the astonishing tropical ecosystem in Fiji than by exploring the mangroves in Savusavu Bay. Fortunately, we offer a unique opportunity to engage in this educational experience with the expert guidance of our resident marine biologist. While observing the wildlife firsthand, you'll also have the chance to plant mangrove seedlings.
J. Hunter's Pearl Farm
If you've ever been curious about the science behind pearls, be sure to take a guided tour of the legendary J.Hunter Pearl Farm, which is conveniently located just a short distance from our resort. Not only will you get to see gem-quality pearl oysters at different stages of growth, but you'll also get to observe technicians begin the culturing process if you happen to be visiting Fiji during the period of seeding and harvesting (from April to May and October to November).
Flora Tropica Gardens
While strolling along the stone paths and elevated walkways at this bayside botanical garden, you can marvel at the more than 250 palm species — one of the most varied collections of palms in the eastern hemisphere, which includes many rare and endangered varieties. The garden is also home to a plethora of other plant life, from orchids and water lilies to more than 40 types of tropical fruit trees and other flowering shrubs. Whether you're looking for photo ops, interested in bird watching, or simply want to absorb some of nature's most beautiful blossoms, this is the place to do it.
