As a true tropical paradise, make sure you pack plenty of suitable beachwear. Remember a sunhat, comfortable beach shoes, plenty of swimsuits, sunglasses, and sunscreen. If you’re visiting during the wetter months (November through April), a rain jacket is also a good idea.

More than 300 volcanic islands make up the archipelago that is Fiji, and many would argue that each of these islands is the embodiment of an island paradise—so we recommend trying multiple islands when you visit Fiji! The island of Viti Levu is Fiji’s main international gateway and its broad offering means it’s a great choice for first-time visitors. The Mamanucas Islands are stunningly beautiful, and are about an hour from Viti Levu. It’s here that Cast Away was filmed.
