Fiji is an aquatic playground. Popular pastimes here include lapping up luxury at beachfront resorts, cruising and hopping through the Yasawa Islands.

A good pampering with delicious-smelling lotions can be had at spas within the upmarket resorts. For shopping, try the craft markets in Nadi or Suva.

It looks like dirty water but has a taste, and sensation, all its own!
