The true tropical paradise
Try to find Fiji on a map and you’ll probably have some difficulty. But don’t fret—it’s actually a cause for celebration. This small paradise continues to call travelers from around the world, and for good reason, too. More than 300 volcanic islands make up the archipelago, which for many is the embodiment of an island paradise. Besides white beaches, turquoise lagoons, tropical rain forests and intact coral reefs, Fiji is also a place of lively markets and impressive colonial buildings. It’s this mix which continually attracts people year after year.
This is the largest temple of its kind in the southern hemisphere. A shimmering Hindu temple with elaborate and vibrant colors in its facade, the Sri Siva is dedicated to the god of the rainy season. Naturally, visiting the temple during this season for the monthly Karthingai Puja festival is one of the temple’s many joys.
The small, uninhabited island of Monuriki already served as a film location for Cast Away with Tom Hanks. The island is now perfect for guided day trips and hikes through an almost untouched natural scenery—relax in the white sand or explore the surrounding coral reef while snorkeling.

Over 2,000 species of Asian orchids can be found in the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, named after the mountain at the foot of which it stands.

The three Tavoro waterfalls are located in the middle of the Bouma National Heritage Park. Green jungle surrounds them, filled with thick vegetation that provides a perfect backdrop to dip your head into flowing waters.
