1. Navala Village
One of Fiji’s last remaining villages with traditional thatched bures (houses), Navala Village not only looks attractive and authentic, but with the backdrop of rolling grassy mountains, it’s a top Instagram spot in Fiji. Located inland from Ba in Viti Levu, Navala Village can be accessed by road (make sure you hire a 4WD) or through various tours like Fiji Eco Tours (available on Viator and Tripadvisor).

2. Lavena Coastal Walk
Just about anywhere on the “Garden Island” of Fiji is “Instagrammable” but for a stunning waterfall shot, head down the Lavena Coastal Walk. The 5km (3-mile) return walk not only takes you along breathtaking beaches and rocky coastline, but the end rewards you with a short scramble upstream to the majestic Wainibau Falls.

3. The Garden of the Sleeping Giant
A top attraction in Nadi, not many miss The Garden of the Sleeping Giant. Just outside of one of Fiji’s busiest towns, The Garden of the Sleeping Giant feels like a world away with its magnificent tropical plants and trees. A short walk over the attractive boardwalks and pond sides of the gardens reveals 30 to 40 varieties of Asian orchids, ideal for macro shots to brighten up your Instagram.

The Hindu temple is a symbol of the Indo-Fijian presence in Fiji, outlining the diverse and unique cultures of these islands. With well-kept gardens and a linear pathway to the entrance, the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple makes for one of the most Instagrammable buildings in Fiji.

5. Tivua Island
Well, any one of the small archipelago islands of the Mamanucas and the Yaswas could feature on this list, but we have chosen Tivua Island for a couple of reasons. Not only is it easy to get to with day trips through Captain Cook Cruises (more info on Viator and Tripadvisor), but the long jetty from the island makes for a great Instagram spot with its linear lines leading to the sandy shores. Check out more ways to explore the islands in the 9 Best Island-Hopping Cruises in Fiji.

6. Cloud 9
The unique floating bar above Roro Reef in the Mamanucas makes for an awesome Instagram photo-op! Cloud 9 is a two-storey floating pizza bar with wood-fired pizzas an international stock of drinks. Get cosy on one of the beanbags or deckchairs on the water’s edge, listen to the tunes of live DJ sets and have a snorkel in the surrounding reef. Book your trip to Cloud 9 on Viator or Tripadvisor.
