Fiji Tropical Resort, Fiji
Fiji is located about two-thirds of the way between Hawaii and New Zealand. It is an archipelago that includes 332 islands, the largest few making up most of the land area, and approximately 110 of which are inhabited. The islands of Fiji are formed by volcanic mountains and surrounded by warm tropical waters. There are beautiful coral reefs that serve as a major attraction for tourists. The islands also have tropical rainforests, coconut plantations, impressive beaches, and rolling hills.

The country enjoys a tropical marine climate with just slight temperature variations throughout the year. Between the months of November and April the area is most prone to tropical cyclonic storms (essentially hurricanes). The country's terrain is mostly mountainous do to the country's volcanic origin. There are remote villages sprinkled throughout the interiors and buses travel the roads that pass through the mountains of Vanua Levu and Viti Levu.

Fiji is divided into nine groups of islands. These include Viti Levu, which is the largest and most significant island. It serves as home to the majority of the inhabitants. It is also the most economically developed. Vanua Levu is the second largest island and the third is Taveuni. The Yasawa Islands are a popular destination for vacationers and Rotuma is one of the most remote. It is also home to a different Polynesian ethnic group. Other regions include Kadavu, Mamanuca Islands, Lomaiviti Islands, and Lau Islands.

Kids clubs let parents have a break and some resorts even offer nanny services.

  • If you're on a budget there are some good options available in Fiji. On the Mamanuca and Yasawa Island chains there are a range of budget friendly resorts.

  • Fiji's official language is English and it is spoken by most people in the major tourist areas. If you're visiting a less touristy island, fluent English speakers may be less common. Fijian or Hindustani is spoken by most adults and children so it is worthwhile to learn a few key phrases.

  • The currency of Fiji is the Fijian Dollar. Inflation is relatively high so prices can be comparable to those found in Australia, at least in the tourist regions.
