Here are five of our favourite islands and resorts for the Fiji vacation of your dreams:

Yasawa Island is one of the most remote and unspoiled islands of Fiji and home to several of Fiji’s best beaches.

If you’re seeking a complete getaway, the intimate Yasawa Island Resort is the place to be. Aptly known as “heaven” in the Fijian language, the resort lives up to its name in many ways. Find seclusion in one of eighteen bungalows, and enjoy a romantic picnic on a private beach and refreshing swims in the crystal clear sea. Pamper yourself at the spa and indulge in world class dining. Enjoy diving? In remote Yasawa you can have a breathtaking, world class reef all to yourself.
This lush hideaway earned the nickname “Garden Island” for its abundant tropical wildflowers, green palms, and colourful bird life. Much of Taveuni Island’s coastline is rugged, set against some of Fiji’s highest peaks. Explore the island’s pristine national park and cool off under pretty waterfalls, enjoy a coastal walk along an impossibly beautiful beach trail or glide through clear waters on a traditional bilibili (bamboo raft). If its sheer indulgence you’re after, the nearby islands of Laucala, Matagi, and Qamea have stunning white beaches and luxury resorts. Qamea Resort & Spa is an adults-only resort catering to just thirty-four guests in luxuriously-appointed beachfront bures, villas, and beach houses.
