There’s a word that’s heard all the time when visiting Fiji’s 333 islands – “Bula”.
“Bula” can mean many things. It can mean hello or welcome, cheers or good health. “Bula” is guaranteed to be delivered and received with the warmest smiles you’ll ever see. Fijians like to be happy and they want you to be happy too. Smiling is second nature to the Fijian people and their warmth and friendliness is infectious. Whether you’re a new visitor or returning, Fiji’s islands offer different experiences that will entice any traveler. Fiji warmly invite you to cruise, dive, hike, snorkel, fish, or just simply enjoy the great physical beauty and the warmth of its people.
Located in the northern end of Koro Sea, much of Taveuni's coastline is rugged and set against some of Fiji's highest peaks. Covered in coconut trees, Taveuni is known for being the Garden Island of Fiji because of its abundance of flora. About 60 percent of the land is tropical rainforest, and the volcanic soil makes Taveuni one of Fiji's most fertile areas. With Rainbow Reef and Vuna Reef just a short boat ride away, Paradise Taveuni offers you excellent diving.
Located just 45 minutes from the airport, the combination of being easily accessible from Nadi, the ability to easily immerse yourself in the fascinating mix of cultural experiences and getting out and about to explore the beauty of the surrounding highlands, natural rainforests and rivers makes this a memorable Fiji holiday experience.
Located just off the coast from Denarau are a series of picture-perfect tiny little islands ringed with white beaches and topped with a forest of coconut palms. These islands offer those beautiful cobalt blue waters, palm fringed long sandy beaches and coral reefs that we all dream of. There are villages and resorts plus fantastic snorkeling and swimming.

It is important to dress modestly when away from hotels and resorts and particularly when visiting a Fijian village. Avoid wearing a hat in a village,
it is considered an insult to the village chief. It is also insulting to touch someone’s head. It's best to not wear shoes if visiting someone’s house.
When visiting a village it is customary to present an inexpensive gift of 'yaqona' or kava to the “Turaga Ni Koro”, the traditional head of the village.
Be prepared to shake hands and answer personal questions as to where you are from, whether married; and, if so, how many children.
