Fiji is a popular tropical destination located in the South Pacific – but you may already know that if you are here to gain ideas about what you can do on your next trip to this tropical paradise. Without further ado, here are some of the most exciting things to do in Fiji.


Experience a Kava Ceremony

Enjoy Kava in Fiji

Upon entering any business, be it a restaurant or hotel, people will call out “Bula Vinaka,” while offering up Kava to show their welcome to you. A traditional Kava ceremony is a must-have experience for any Fiji traveler. If you visit a Fiji village, customarily, you need to present a Yaqona gift (Kava root). The Kava root, which is a mild narcotic that may make your tongue feel a little numb (it’s normal – don’t worry), is ground and strained into a large wooden bowl. Kava will make you feel very relaxed so sit back and enjoy it.




Ride a Jet Boat

Jet boats are thrilling to ride and an exciting way to travel from village to village in Fiji. Head down the Sigatoka River in a jet boat to get to a traditional village for an unforgettable experience. Your guide will likely tell you tales of the history of Fiji, along with stories of the headhunters who used to dwell along the edges of the river. Once you arrive to your village destination, you can enjoy a Kava ceremony and dance with the local villagers, who are always filled with happiness and joy.


Enjoy the Rainforest

Bouma Falls, Tropical Fiji Islands

The rainforests in Fiji are beautiful and lush. The greenery is pure and such a deep color it almost seems to be out of this world. Make sure you take some time to pause from the busy activities of Fiji and take some time to just enjoy the rainforest scenery.








Relax on a Secluded Beach

Although there is a lot to do in Fiji, the bonus is that much of it can be relaxing. The beaches of Fiji are beautiful and you can easily find a secluded beach to just relax on, while enjoying the beautiful view ahead of you. Pack a lunch and spend the afternoon resting or head to the beach for a sunrise/sunset for a unique tranquil experience.


Have a Spa Day

Travel can take a lot out of a person. Bask in luxury and enjoy a spa day at The Pearl Fiji. This establishment is found on the quieter side of the island, making it a great place to visit for serenity and peace. If you are traveling as a couple, try the couples massage!







Head to the Oho Caves

The Navatua Tribe, which was known to be the fiercest in the land, used to live in the Oho Caves. Today the descendants of these warriors offer guided walks up to the caves, while educating visitors on their ancestors and how they used to headhunt and live off the land.
