Fiji Travel Package: Best Fiji Beach Resorts and Diving

Designed for water lovers, this Fiji travel package showcases Fiji beaches and tropical waters.  It was designed for a lovely gay couple from San Francisco, who are huge divers.  Fiji is a diver’s paradise with superb underwater scenery, excellent visibility, warm water temperatures, colorful marine life and pristine coral reefs. It is considered the soft coral capital of the world.  Diving in Fiji’s tropical waters is exceptional. Soft coral, drop off walls, drift dives, and underwater caves.  We sent our couple at wonderful, warm Matangi in a Tropical Ocean Bure for ten nights.  A boutique adults only resort offering snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, kayaking, hiking, private picnics, cultural tours and excursions, fine dining and spa services.  Rates include all meals and a variety of non-motorised activities. At Matangi, all of their meals were included, so they enjoyed the local cuisine.  And they took three days to do diving at the Somo Somo Straits where they saw the Rainbow Reef and traveled to the Great White Wall.  Also while they were there, they took a day to visit Horseshoe Bay, which is listed as one of the 1,000 places to see before you die.  They also scheduled multiple spa treatments for themselves while they were there.

Suggested Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive early into the Nadi airport and hop a quick short flight to Taveuni for your transfer to Matangi Private Island Resort. Get settled in at this beautiful and tranquil resort that offers access to some of the best diving in Fiji. Not only that, Matangi Island has its own exclusive Fiji Beach, Horseshoe Bay, listed in “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” by Patricia Schultz. It is situated on the untouched western coast of Matangi Island and only accessible by boat. A private picnic on Horseshoe Bay is a “must do” during your time at Matangi.

Day 2 – 4
Days are at your leisure on this Fiji beach honeymoon, to enjoy the island on land and underwater. Spend your mornings visiting the incredible dive locations accessible by a short boat trip from the island. Make sure to visit one of the most famous dive sites in Fiji, Rainbow Reef. Located in Somosomo Straits 20 miles west of Matangi, the reef structure is over 3 miles long and is continually fed by microorganisms, which results in an amazing abundance of tropical marine life! Rainbow Reef almost single-handedly earns Fiji the title as the “Soft Coral Capital of the World.” In the afternoon, enjoy the resort and other optional activities including: kayaking, meke (traditional fijian dance), village tour, guided island treks, sailing, volleyball, deep sea fishing, and bushwalking.

For an off the beaten track adventure, walk the Lavena coastline, an area only accessible by foot! Experience the coastal habitats and incredible waterfalls. Or spend the day touring the Civa Pearl Farm and visiting the beautiful Tavoro Waterfall. In the evening take a bottle of bubbles down to the water’s edge for a lovely sundowner before dinner.
