Sun drenched deserted beaches, snorkeling in coral reefs, lazy afternoons in a hammock by the sea shore, and fruity drinks with umbrella’s in them. There are few things that fit into category of ultimate romantic holiday like a romantic trip to Fiji. However, planning the perfect romantic trip to Fiji isn’t as easy as hoping a flight, and picking a throwing a dart at the list of resorts. Some additional planning may be required.
When you mention Fiji, most people think of a small island in the middle of the south pacific. In reality, Fiji is made up of over 300 islands, and 500 islets spread out across thousands of miles of ocean. If you are truly looking for the ultimate romantic trip to Fiji, you will want to get away from the large “tourist trap” locations, and head out to some of the smaller, more intimate islands.
We recommend the Yasawa or Mamanuca Islands, both located to the west of the big island of Viti Levu, and easily accessible from the international airport in Nadi. Turtle Airways offers multiple flights per day to both of these beautiful island chains, and our flights stop at many of the resorts that you will find dotted across the islands. In many cases, our seaplanes land right at the beach of the resort you are going to.
Choosing a Resort
Resorts in Fiji span the spectrum. There are budget resorts with dorm style accommodations (but that isn’t very romantic), and there all all inclusive, luxury resorts were each private villa has it’s own private beach. If you are looking for a true touch of romance in the south pacific, then these may be the resorts for you.
It is important to check the resorts your are looking into to make sure they have the features, and activities that you, and your special someone, wants. Some resorts offer horseback riding, and others offer volleyball. Find the types of activities that you want to do, and look for a resort that fits those needs.
Getting Away From Your Resort
After you spend all that time choosing the perfect resort, why would you want to leave? Fiji has many amazing sites to behold, and many fun activities that are not available at every resort. And to be honest, spending your entire vacation at your resort is a little boring, isn’t it?
Many of the resorts in the outlying islands are near to at least one traditional Fijian village. Spend na afternoon taking a tour of one of these villages. It is always an amazing experience to visit a different culture first hand, and see how the native Fijians do things. You may even get to take part in a traditional Kava ceremony.
Take a Sightseeing Flight
The Yasawa Islands in Fiji were formed millions of years ago by volcanic activity. Seeing these majestic islands, with their towering mountain peaks, and lush rainforests, from the air is an amazing site. Bring your camera along as Turtle Airways offers low flying scenic flights all around the area that will give you an amazing and unique experience that you are your loved one will cherish forever.
If you would like to have the ultimate romantic vacation, then planning a romantic trip to Fiji is the right move. Whether it is for a honeymoon, or anniversary, or just because, a romantic trip to Fiji is just what most people need to reignite that fire, and create memories to last a lifetime.
