It’s no secret that Fiji is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations. With its beautiful beaches, sparkling ocean water, and stunning views, it attracts thousands of visitors each and every year. If you’re considering spending your honeymoon in Fiji, continue reading to discover some of the best destinations to visit on your honeymooon in paradise.
There is much more to Fiji than just the beach, if you can bear to tear yourself away from the water. There is a whole different world filled with waterfalls, rain forests, hiking opportunities, interesting wildlife and exciting tours. One of the most spectacular and popular tours is a white water rafting expedition along the Upper Navua River. If you prefer a slower pace, there are cultural exhibits and markets to explore in the cities and one of the largest collections of orchids in the world at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant.
Find Your Very Own Deserted Stretch of Beach
While there are beautiful public beaches, there are also many small beaches with pure white sands hidden among the turns and twists of the island coast lines. You can explore and find your own to discover what it really feels like to be away from it all. Some resorts are even located far from the main island and offer long stretches of private beaches to get lost on. There will not be another person in sight. They will even pack a champagne picnic lunch for you to enjoy as you spend your day in seclusion. Other resorts will take you to a small uninhabited island or sandbar and leave you with a picnic, umbrella and chairs and snorkels to enjoy your freedom for a few hours before they come back to pick you up. If you are staying on the mainland, why not splurge for a quick helicopter ride to drop you off on an island for a few hours!
You can obviously stay in a great hotel room at many resorts, but you can do this anywhere in the world. While on your Fiji honeymoon, for at least part of your stay, spend a few nights in a traditional, thatched roof bure on the beach (Bure, pronounced “boo ray”, is a Fijian word for bungalow or hut). Don’t misunderstand, a bure is not the same as camping out in a tent or a rustic log cabin. Some of the most elaborate and luxurious accommodations in Fiji are bures built with authentic Fijian materials, architecture and style. One spectacular place to do this is at Likuliku Lagoon Resort. This boutique, adults only, paradise caters specifically to Honeymooners and takes on the appearance of an ancient Fijian village as you approach from the water. With Fiji’s only true “over-water” bures you can be assured of a unique experience. There is no better way to celebrate the beginning of your life together than on a tropical Fijian island in a secluded, romantic bure.
