Indeed, on your arrival to Fiji’s 322 islands, you, too, will be convinced that your have landed in Paradise.

Covering over 7,000 sq. miles (1800 sq. km) in the South Pacific, Fiji is one of the most romantic places for a honeymoon. Here you can revel in luxurious accommodations such as Namale – The Fiji Islands Resort & Spa, an ideal place for windsurfing, diving and love. Because of the coral and the excellent visibility in the waters around Fiji, you can also look forward to spectacular snorkeling. An excursion to Beqa Lagoon – the crater of an extinct volcano – won’t disappoint. Turtle Island is particularly known for romance. It is home to the Turtle Island resort that can only accommodate 14 couples in a one-of-a-kind setting. Here you can explore the Blue Lagoon by day and rendezvous on the beach for a candle lit dinner in the evening. If shopping is a ‘must’, it’s duty-free here. For jewelry, nothing compares with the purchase of some black pearls found here off Savusavu Bay. For something less expensive, visit the Fijian Cultural Center and Marketplace near the Pacific Harbour International Resort.
