Where to stay
All Fiji holidays begin on the main island Viti Levu (Big Viti), the jumping off point for the outer islands, and here you’ll find a huge range of hotels and resorts. South of Nadi, is the Coral Coast, which wraps around the southwestern corner of Viti Levu's coastline, offering one of the largest fringing coral reefs in the world.
Many Australian travellers make a beeline for the famous Mamanuca group of islands, which boast a string of tropical resorts on 14 of its islands, as well as local villages and several of its own deserted islands. Among the first islands to be developed for tourism, the Mamanucas hold a special place in the heart of many Aussie travellers.
The second biggest island, Vanua Levu, is located in Fiji’s north. Taveuni, the third largest, is located to the west of Vanua Levu. Fiji’s north and the Yasawa Islands are where to head for a more remote, authentic experience away from the resort rich areas of Viti Levu, and the Mamanucas.
