According to Fiji’s Bureau of Statistics, more people visited the Fiji islands in 2017 then ever before. In fact, Fiji tourism increased by 6 percent compared to the previous year. With so many people headed to Fiji for their vacations, you might be wondering why everyone is going to Fiji for holiday?
Experience a Fiji Island Paradise First Hand
Fiji is an amazing tropical paradise. This Pacific Island nation is made up of over 300 islands and 500 islets. Although the majority (87%) of the population of Fiji is located on the 2 largest islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, many of the smaller islands are still home to authentic Fijian villages. In these villages, Fijian people live much like they have for thousands of years.
In the western section of Fiji on the famous Yasawa Island chain, Land based tourism was not allowed until 1987. As a result, there was never any large scale commercialization of these pristine islands. These days, the Yasawa island chain is dotted with smaller, boutique resorts. These smaller, cozy resorts are usually owned and operated by local villages. The villagers have a keen interest in preserving the natural beauty of their island homes. Therefore they have taken extra care to make sure their resorts are eco friendly and sustainable.
The Perfect Fiji Islands Vacation
No matter what type of vacation you are looking for, Fiji has just the place for you. You can find large resorts that have everything you could possibly want and more on the large islands, or out in the Mamanuca islands. But if you are looking for a more private escape, the smaller resorts are the place for you. These resorts range to fit any budget from the low cost “backpacker” resorts that have large, dorm style, accommodations that can fit dozens of guests, to the ultra luxurious all inclusive resorts that limit the number of guests (who each get their own private villa).
But let’s face it, when in Fiji, you may sleep in your accommodations, but you will spend the rest of the time enjoying the tropical paradise of these south pacific islands. Fiji is home to some of the most amazingly clear lagoons and soft coral reefs you can find anywhere in the world. Whether you prefer scuba diving, or snorkeling, this is an amazing place to be under the sea. And if you prefer to stay above the waves, there is sailing, kayaking, fishing, windsurfing, paddle boarding… the list of amazing water sports goes on and on. There is always something to do in the Fiji islands. Maybe that is why so many people are making Fiji their number one choice vacation destination.
