The country comprises an archipelago of more than 332 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of about 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Onu-i-Lau. The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of almost 860,000. The capital and largest city, Suva, is on Viti Levu. About three-quarters of Fijians live on Viti Levu's coasts, either in Suva or in smaller urban centres like Nadi (tourism) or Lautoka (sugar cane industry). Viti Levu's interior is sparsely inhabited due to its terrain.
For the greatest fun under the sun, you can't beat a day at South Sea Island, the closest day trip island. Just 30 minutes from Denarau aboard our high speed catamaran, our uninhabited island is surrounded by crystal clear waters and magnificent coral reefs.
Our Fijian entertainers will give you a warm welcome as you step ashore onto the sandy beaches. Then the island and all its activities are yours to enjoy...the hardest part is choosing what to do first!
Ride beneath the waves in our semi-submersible vessel to explore the coral reefs and see the magnificent tropical fish life in the surrounding marine sanctuary or get even closer with free use of snorkeling equipment. You may also relax on the beach with complimentary drinks.
Unwind and discover 'Fiji Time' or get active with a snorkel, dive or a hike to the islands highest peak in Octopus Resort, nestled on a stunning white sandy beach in Likuliku Bay and with one of the most spectacular reefs just meters off the beach.
Cruise out through the beautiful Mamanuca Islands enroute to Mana Island Resort. Meander in through the lagoon then step ashore to enjoy the delights of this wonderful island.
Mana Island is an extensive resort with three separate beach areas, crystal clear waters, lots of shady palms and poolside bars and lounges, so it's not hard to find your own idyllic spot. On the lagoon side enjoy snorkeling and a range of great watersport activities. Laze on the quieter North Beach with its beautiful views out over uninhabited islands or soak up the sun on Sunset Beach.
