The Area: Fiji
One of the world’s most iconic Island nations, the Republic of Fiji occupies a special place in the heart of any traveller with a craving to let it all go and escape to a tropical paradise. Comprising an archipelago of more than 300 islands, Fiji is a secluded yet vibrant destination tucked away in the South Pacific Ocean. Sunlight dances on the famous white beaches while azure waters whisper an inviting siren song of relaxation, offset by colourful coral reefs teeming with life below the surface.
Located on Viti Levu’s Coral Coast, Sigatoka is a market town surrounded by resorts that make the most of the glittering beaches framing the south side of the island. Soak up the sun’s rays with a dip in the ocean or simply find a pristine patch of sand to set up camp for the day with a good book. For a more cultural experience, explore Sigatoka itself to find fresh produce, textiles and local fare like curries and samosas from street side vendors.
For those with a taste for adrenalin, more adventure activities await travellers close by. Hop aboard the Sigatoka River Safari for thrills and spills on a custom jet boat while learning about Fijian history and the neighbouring area. Or get below the water during a dive around the famed reefs, meeting colourful creatures and savouring the quietness that comes with being one with the ocean. Environmental warriors will also enjoy a visit to Kula Eco Park, the only breeding centre for endangered Fijian wildlife like iguanas and parrots.
