The tropical islands of Fiji are truly breath-taking. But while many international travelers and city-dwellers dream of relaxing on their pristine beaches, fewer islanders take the opportunity to experience life as a carefree tourist. But now, with cross-border travel on pause, local residents have a unique opportunity to discover the wonders of their home islands and an amazing range of activities to enjoy.
Destination Denarau Island
Fiji is a world-class tourism destination, where the exotic idyll of sun, sea and sand is complemented by outstanding attractions. Denarau Island, with its convenient location, world-class water sports, restaurants, marina and golf course, provides the perfect setting for any staycation.
Family Fun in the Sun
The first stop for families should be Big Bula Waterpark, which features giant water slides, surf waves, inflatables, and more. Kids will never want to leave! But if parents can drag them away, more peaceful pleasures await at the Sleeping Giant Zip Line Fiji, an enchanting 35-hectare Eco-friendly adventure park that hosts one of the world’s largest orchid collections. For adrenalin-fuelled adventures, visitors can fly through the tropical rainforest on five zip-lines.
Rediscover the rich cultural heritage of their home country with a choice of experiences. The Flavours of Fiji Cooking School includes a market tour followed by a professionally-led cooking class using local and seasonal produce. Afterward, visitors can head to the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, which is open to worshippers and visitors alike.
For Fijian friends who simply want to chill out and enjoy a stress-free day trip, Malamala Beach Club is the perfect option. Nestled on its own island, surrounded by Fiji’s crystal clear waters, this tropical haven features beachside cabanas, an infinity pool, handcrafted cocktails and Pacific Rim cuisine, set to the backdrop of all-day tunes.
Alternatively, guests can simply relax and enjoy a staycation with international facilities at Radisson Blu Resort Fiji Denarau Island, which features four lagoon pools, a tunnel slide, a spa and six restaurants, all set in 10 acres of tropical gardens with waterfalls and a private beach. Fiji is a dream destination for so many world travelers; for Fijians, there has never been a better time to rediscover this Pacific island paradise.
