Things to Do on the Coral Coast for Adults

Unwind, experience adventure and spend quality time with your friends or loved one through scuba diving, spa treatments, play golf and much more with the things to do on the Coral Coast for adults. For more inspiration, be sure to check out our Adult Only Guide to the Coral Coast.
1. Indulge in a Coral Coast Spa Treatment
Wherever you stay on the Coral Coast, day spas are a sure-fire way to enjoy a timeout from the rest of the world. Try CHI, The Spa of the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort, which offers traditional Asian-style treatments using Fijian natural products. The InterContinental Resort‘s aptly-named Spa offers a range of experiences from hydrotherapy in their Wai Zone to a private beachside cabana massage. Get more inspiration for choosing the right day spa for you in our 9 Best Day Spas on the Coral Coast.
2. Go Scuba Diving in Coral Reefs
Scuba diving is one of the must-do experiences in Fiji, especially on the Coral Coast. Resorts that cater to adult-only holidays, like the Wellesley Resort and Tambua Sands, have scuba diving lessons and trips available. Alternatively, if you are staying in resorts that are also open to families, you’ll often find that scuba diving trips have far more adults (or exclusively adults) than children as kids can only start learning from age 10.
3. Play a Round of Golf on a Championship Course
The Coral Coast is one of the best locations in Fiji to play golf, so don’t miss the opportunity to play. Most famously, the InterContinental‘s Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course is one of Fiji’s most prestigious courses. While the course is open to all ages, golfing etiquette is taken seriously making it a pleasant experience for all. Alternatively, try the 9-hole golf course at the fabulous Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort. See our Complete Guide to Golf in Fiji to learn more.
4. Try your Luck on a Game Fishing Charter
Game and sport-fishing charters are a popular way to get out on the water at the adult-only The View and Wellesley Resorts. Even if staying at one of the other Coral Coast resorts, fishing charters are either private for your group or more likely to be shared with fellow adults. Try your luck catching monsters like mahimahi, sailfish, giant trevally and much more – take a look at our What Types of Fish Can You Fish For in Fiji?!
5. Dine at one of the Adult-Only Restaurants
Set the mood right by dining in one of the Coral Coast’s romantic adult-only restaurants, cafes and bars. While the restaurants of the adult-only resorts are the obvious go-to, other resorts have their own adult-only dining areas, such as the Takali Asian Kitchen of the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort. Adult-only breakfast is also served at the resort’s Golden Dowrie Coastal Italian Restaurant. Alternatively, guests at Outrigger Resort have the luxury of the adult-only Vahavu Bistro located in their adult-only pool area. Finally, the InterContinental Resort offers private dining experiences for couples. Learn more about dining on the Coral Coast in our Guide to the Best Eats & Restaurants on the Coral Coast.
6. Hire a Kayak for a Private Paddle Along the Coast
Almost every waterfront resort on the Coral Coast offers complimentary use of kayaks, which is a great way to get on the water and enjoy your own “Fiji time“. It’s one of the most peaceful ways to get out on the water with no busy tour groups and no motor noise: just you and the crystal clear waters below.
7. Spend the Day by the Adults Pool
Indulge in some relaxing pool time at one of the Coral Coast’s adults pools. Cool down in the infinity-edge pool of the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort‘s adult-only Reef Wing or in the infinity adult-only pool of the InterContinental Resort. The Warwick Resort‘s adult-only Suva Wing has a fabulous pool, while the Outrigger Resort‘s Vahavu Pool has its very own swim-up bar. Needless to say, the pools of the Coral Coast’s three adult-exclusive resorts is a relaxing child-free zone.
8. Do an Island Excursion
Fiji is made up of 333 islands, so start exploring them with an island excursion from your adult-only resort. The View offers island excursions to the stunning and isolated Vatulele Island, as well as Yanuca Island where the Shangri-La Resort is based.
9. Drink and be Merry at one of the Coral’s Coast Bars
The Coral Coast might not be the party hub of the South Pacific, but it is, however, a stunning location for casual drinks with friends or your loved one. All the resorts mentioned in this list have their own bar options, which is where guests often find themselves most evenings. But if you’re looking to explore further, check out the charmingly Fijian Koko’s Bar on the Sunset Strip of Korotogo or the European-style Beach Bar n’ Grill! We also recommend booking an informal brewery tour with Mokusiga, by The Beachouse. Check out more recommendations in our 10 Best Bars on the Coral Coast.
10. Enjoy the Cultural Activities of Your Adult-Only Resort
It’s true that the cultural entertainment nights are usually where resort guests of all ages come together. However, you can still get your dose of culture in a less-crowded setting at one of the adult-only resorts. The View offers hat-weaving lessons to create a fun souvenir while learning more about the Fijian culture. Alternatively, join in on the kava ceremony at the Wellesley Resort or Tambua Sands Resort where you’ll learn about the traditions surrounding this narcotic drink.
