Did you know that Fiji is a mecca for national parks and marine sanctuaries? Take the time to explore this South Pacific nation’s pristine natural environments.
The natural beauty of Fiji’s 333 islands have created a unique ecosystem that is complimented by mountainous and lush terrains, rolling sand dunes and vibrant coral reef systems with an abundance of underwater sea life.
For those wanting more ocean time, explore the Naiqoro Passage Marine Sanctuary, which is part of the Great Astrolabe Reef in Kadavu, for a chance to swim with barracuda, surgeon fish, reef sharks, manta rays and even the occasional sailfish!
If you’re needing a break from the water, head to the Coral Coast to hike the Sigatoka Sand Dunes. Spanning 650-hectares, this remarkable sand dune system has dunes that stand at 60 metres tall and is home to over twenty species of birds, skinks, lizards, geckos and fruit bats.
