7. Take a Romantic Walk on the Beach

The simple things in life can often be the most romantic and that’s certainly true when it comes to long walks on the beach. Although Denarau Island’s manmade beaches are not as idyllic as the outer islands’ white sands, they still make a stunning place to feel the sand between your toes as you walk with your lover. We recommend watching the sunset from outside the most picturesque stretch of beach at the Sheraton Fiji Resort.
