Child-Free Activities on the Pacific Harbour
Set the mood right with one of these adult-only activities on the Pacific Harbour and Beqa Island! Whether you’re looking for inspiration for a romantic getaway, a trip with mates or just some time to reconnect away from the kids while they’re at the kids’ club, you’ll find something to suit in this list of things to do on the Pacific Harbour for adults.
1. Scuba Dive at One of the World’s Largest Reefs at the Beqa Lagoon
If you know anything about the Pacific Harbour and Beqa Island it’s that this part of Fiji is close to one of the islands’ best scuba diving spots, the Beqa Lagoon. Surrounded by one of the world’s largest barrier reefs with over 306km (190 miles) of coral, the Beqa Lagoon is a must-hit scuba diving spot for experienced and non-experienced divers alike! Scuba diving is on the agenda of most resorts on the Pacific Harbour and Beqa Island, including the adult-only Royal Davui Island Resort, which is the best way to keep your experience child-free. Otherwise, with the scuba diving age being 10 years and over, you don’t need to worry too much about being surrounded by youngsters.
2. Kick it Up a Notch with a Shark Diving Experience
Vamp up the scuba diving experience with cageless shark diving on the Pacific Harbour! That’s right, the nearby Shark Reef Marine Reserve is a protected area for around seven different species of sharks (including huge bull sharks) and around 300 species of fish. Again, the activity isn’t exclusively adult-only, but first, children need to be over 10 years old to scuba dive, and second, there aren’t too many parents putting their kids in the water with sharks… Book your trip with Aqua-Trek Beqa (on Viator or Tripadvisor) or through your chosen resort.
3. Enjoy a Private Cruise Around the Islands
There are plenty of cruise options where you can keep the crowd to who you choose, whether it’s just the two of you or up to four people. Resorts that specialise in romance like the Lalati Resort & Spa on Beqa Island offer a lagoon cruise including canapes and rum punch as part of their “Romance Package”, while the boutique Kulu Bay Resort does an “Around Beqa Island Boat Tour”. Of course, those staying at the luxury Nanuku Auberge Resort have access to private cruises and private island tours.
4. Indulge in a Private Beach Picnic
Enjoy romance, great food and privacy with a private dining experience. The Royal Davui Resort, Nanuku Auberge Resort and Lalati Resort all offer private dining experiences, whether it’s on a private table overlooking the ocean or on your own private pier. Nanuku, Kulu Bay Resort and Lalati Resort also offer private beach picnics to secluded sand bars and beaches complete with a gourmet picnic.
5. Surf on the Famous Frigates Passage
About 19km (12 miles) off the coast is one of Fiji’s most famous surf breaks, Frigates Pass. The long and heavy left-hand barrel that is known to break for over 500ft is a thrill for keen surfers. And be rest assured, the reef break is no place for a kid, making it a sure adult-only experience with your fellow wave-riders. Trips to Frigates Pass and the other surf breaks on the Pacific Harbour can be organised with most resorts in the Beqa Island and Pacific Harbour area.
6. Try Sports Fishing, Handline Fishing or Spearfishing
Far from your noisy tour group experience, fishing in Fiji is always a relaxing experience you can rely on as an adult-only trip. There are many different ways to experience fishing on the Pacific Harbour or Beqa Island. Try native techniques of handline fishing in your own quiet corner of Beqa Island at the Kulu Bay Resort or with open-ocean spearfishing at the Nanuku Auberge Resort. Of course, game fishing for whoppers like mahimahi, wahoo and yellowfin tuna is always an option at resorts like The Pearl Resort, Waidroka Resort and more!

7. Explore the Coast by Kayak
With so many resorts offering free kayak hire to use at your own leisure, there’s no excuse not to get out on the water and explore the coast. Kayaking on the Pacific Harbour and Beqa Island is a tranquil experience shared with just your loved one or friends. Resorts like the small (and most often adult-only) Lalati Resort & Spa on Beqa Island offer private/small group kayaking tours to “Bat Island” should you want a guided experience.
8. Play a Round of Golf at The Pearl Golf & Country Club
Golf etiquette is taken pretty seriously (with a hint of Fiji time) at The Pearl Golf & Country Club so you need not worry about anyone disturbing your game. Just enjoy the long fairways lined with tropical plants on this 18-hole par-72 golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. The golf course is one of the most famous in Fiji and is ideally located in the centre of the Pacific Harbour. Alternatively, The Nanuku Auberge Resort offers helicopter tours to the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course on the Coral Coast.
9. Relax with a Spa Treatment
No matter where you stay on the Pacific Harbour, you know that the day spa of your resort is going to be your reliable adult-only retreat. Try The Pearl Resort‘s spa with eight private treatment rooms, two couples rooms and a large “chill” room. The Davui Fiji Spa can’t be missed on the adult-only Royal Davui Resort with its luxurious treatment rooms overlooking the ocean.

10. Rejuvenate with a Fitness and Wellness Program
The adult-only zone of many resorts is the fitness centre. Rejuvenate with like-minded people in one of the yoga sessions at the Waidroka Resort. The resort offers a wealth of wellness activities surrounding meditation, nutrition and more. Or join the Nanuku Auberge‘s wellness coach for a beach and jungle boot camp. Finally, The Pearl Resort‘s gym is exclusive to guests over 16 years old.
