Getting married is a huge step in your life. You have found the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. And hopefully, that is going to be a very long time. Getting married joins the two of your lives together in a bond that will last forever, and no matter what happened in your old life, your new life starts the moment you say “I do”. Your Fiji honeymoon is the first steps in that new life together, and therefore should be something extraordinary. So don’t just book yourself a room at some flashy big brand name resort on the big island. Find something special, something unique, something romantic.
Almost all international flights into Fiji go to Nadi and the big island. There are also plenty of resorts around Nadi. But if you want your Fiji honeymoon to be something special, you should get off Nadi and head out to some of the smaller island chains. Fiji is made up of over 300 islands and 500 islets (only about 110 of those are permanently inhabited). If you want an amazing, romantic, tropical island getaway for your Fiji honeymoon, heading out to those islands is a must. We recommend the Mamanuca island, or the Yasawa islands (both to the west of Nadi).
Experience Fiji Together
If you want a relaxing, secluded Fiji honeymoon, the Yasawa islands may be the best bet for you. These picturesque islands and lagoons are dotted with small resorts that feature private beach front bungalows where you can make the most of your Fiji honeymoon. The Yasawa island chain was closed off to land based tourism until 1987 making it a more ecofriendly, and pristine area. The resorts that are now found in Yasawa are mostly owned and/or operated by local Fijian tribes who have built them in a way to harmonize with the local landscape and culture. These resorts house only a small number of guests at a time, and are the perfect place for you and your new spouse to experience Fiji together.
Explore Amazing Sites
Of course, as nice as your resort may be, Fiji is more then just a nice resort with great beaches. To truly make your Fiji honeymoon exemplary, you need to venture outside of your resort and explore the amazing sites Fiji has to offer.
In the northern part of the Yasawa island chain, you can find the Sawa-i-lau caves. Fijian lore says that once, a chief from one village hid his true love in these caves because her father had promised her to the chief of a rival village. Every day he would swim into the caves to bring her food, and take care of her until they eventually escaped together. There is no doubt that romantic lineage of the Sawa-i-lau caves is still felt to this day.
Further south in the Yasawa island chain is the world famous Blue Lagoon made popular in the Hollywood hit film of the same name. You and your true love can swim in the crystal clear waters like Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins and discover each others love anew as husband and wife.
In the south of the Yasawa island chain, between the islands of Nanuya Balavu and Drawaqa you will find a thin channel where you may be able to swim with the majestic Manta Rays. What an unforgettable experience to have on your Fijian Honeymoon!
