Fiji Travel Guide

May 27, 2003


On your trip to Fiji you can either pack in lots of different activities or laze around and do very little.Diving

Fiji’s warm, clear waters and abundance of reef life make the islands a magnet for divers.

The beauty of Fiji is that, with a well-established dive industry, you can have great access to diving regardless of whether your accommodation funds extend to budget or luxury. When choosing a place to stay, decide whether the sole purpose of your trip is diving or whether you also want to pursue other activities. Some resorts specialise in diving, and exclusive resorts often include diving in the daily tariff.

Many travellers take the opportunity to learn scuba diving while in Fiji, and most operators offer courses for beginners as well as certification and advanced courses.

Dive Sites

Fiji has vast unexplored regions as well as many dive sites of world renown. There is no such thing as the best diving site, especially in Fiji. Each dive site has something special or unique. Sites range from the safe and easy, to wall dives in fast currents, to dives with reef sharks.


Snorkelling in Fiji’s warm waters is a definite highlight and is often fantastic very close to the coast.

You are likely to see brilliant soft and hard corals, multitudes of colourful fish of various shapes and sizes, sponges, sea cucumbers, urchins, starfish, Christmas-tree worms and molluscs. Crustaceans are more difficult to spot and many only come out at night. Night snorkelling is a fantastic experience if you can overcome your fear of the unknown!
