1. Enjoy an Intimate Helicopter or Seaplane Flight to Your Resort
Get your Fiji getaway off to the most romantic start by taking a scenic flight to your resort. Soar above stunning islands and share an intimate and romantic experience with your other half. Air operators like Pacific Island Air (more info on Viator and Tripadvisor) and Turtle Airways depart from Nadi International Airport and Port Denarau, transferring passengers to resorts across Fiji but most of all, the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. Check out more romantic activities in these islands in the 10 Romantic Activities in the Yasawa Islands for Couples.
2. Experience Adventure on a Jet Ski Safari
Put your arms around your partner’s waist and hold on as you two embark on a breathtaking thrill ride by jet ski! Popular jet ski trips can be found on the Coral Coast, taking you to a breathtaking island or beach for a picnic lunch and snorkelling. Alternatively, hit Fiji’s adventure capital, the Pacific Harbour, for a jet ski safari over the coral-filled Beqa Lagoon on your way to Beqa Island. Find out more about the latter experience in the 10 Romantic Activities on the Pacific Harbour for Couples.
3. Stargaze at Some of the Clearest Night Skies
Located on the 180th parallel in the southern Pacific Ocean, Taveuni is isolated from the world’s light pollution, making it one of the best places in Fiji (and the world) for stargazing. While stargazing on most islands in Fiji makes for a romantic experience on a clear night, Taveuni is home to luxury villas like Raiwasa or Vacala, where you’ll have complete privacy and an ample selection of outdoor lounging areas to relax in while enjoying the spectacular southern night’s sky. Check out more experiences in Fiji’s “Garden Island” in the 10 Romantic Activities on Taveuni for Couples.
4. Indulge in a Luxury Couple’s Massage
Sensory indulgence and ultimate relaxation make a spa day in Fiji an incredibly romantic way to spend time together. Couples’ massages are on the menu of most spas in Fiji, but a great example is the spas in Denarau’s resorts. The Senikai Spa at the Wyndham Denarau Resort has a generous offering of couples’ treatments from his and hers facials to full-body massages. Alternatively, you might enjoy the romantic tropical setting of the Heavenly Spa by Westin with 10 open-air treatment rooms as well as therapy pools, plunge pools, steam room, fitness studio and more. Check out the 10 Romantic Activities in Denarau for Couples.
5. Do a Sunset Cruise Complete with Drinks and Canapes
We all agree that sunset is that romantic time of day, especially when the sun is seen dipping behind the ocean. One way to make the most of it is on a sunset cruise where resorts like Six Senses Fiji and Likuliku Lagoon Resort in the Mamanuca Islands offer cruises for couples complete with refreshments and sparkling wine while you sit back and enjoy the views of the islands. See more ways to experience romance in the Mamanucas in the 10 Romantic Activities in the Mamanuca Islands for Couples.
6. Learn to Scuba Dive Together
If you thought the verdant islands with white beaches, volcanic peaks or swaying coconut palms were stunning then wait until you discover the underwater world of Fiji. A diverse range of hard and soft coral attract amazing marine species such as turtle, eagle rays, reef sharks, eels, sea snakes and thousands of reef fish, making Fiji the perfect place to strengthen your bond by learning a new skill together: scuba diving. While a beginners dive is a great introduction to the deep, you can take it a step further by learning to scuba dive together on a three-day PADI Open Water, for instance, at the Toberua Island Resort in the Lomaiviti Islands. That way, you can combine the experience with the 7 Romantic Activities in the Lomaiviti Islands for Couples.
7. Explore the Coast in a Double Kayak
A peaceful thus romantic way to explore the coast and lagoons of Fiji is by gliding across the water’s azure surface in a kayak. Double kayaks are usually a staple of waterfront resorts in Fiji where water sports equipment is free for guests to use. Particularly on the Coral Coast, you can hire a double kayak from your resort’s watersports team and test out your teamwork! Check out more experiences in the area in the 10 Romantic Activities on the Coral Coast for Couples.
8. Enjoy a Peaceful Hike to a Waterfall
A waterfall among tropical rainforest makes a good setting for a romantic walk and on islands like Kadavu, you have many options for waterfalls. From towering volcanic cliffs with cascades daring the local kids to jump into the pool below to guided waterfall boat tours with Oneta Resort, Kokomo Island and Mai Dive Resort, there are many options for waterfall walks in Kadavu. For a more intimate experience, we recommend the short waterfall walk from Papageno Resort, which is well marked for you to walk unguided to the tranquil Malawai Waterfall. Check out more experiences in this off-the-beaten-track destination in the 10 Romantic Activities on Kadavu for Couples.
9. Treat Your Loved One to a Private Beach Picnic
Get marooned together on a stunning tropical island with the best part of the boat: the food! Many resorts across Fiji offer this romantic experience where you and your loved one will be whisked away to a secluded white sand beach, often on an uninhabited island, to spend the day alone together swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing complete with a gourmet picnic hamper. This experience is not just available from Fiji’s outer islands, as resorts like Wananavu Beach Resort in Viti’s Levu’s Suncoast also offer this experience as well as many others in the 10 Romantic Activities on the Suncoast for Couples.
10. Retreat to the Adults-only Area of Your Resort
… Or even retreat to a fully adult-only resort in Fiji. Adult-only areas in resorts are often complete with an adults-only pool, bar and perhaps a restaurant where the tone is set just right for a couple’s holiday. Alternatively, adult-only resorts in Fiji specialise in romance, designed for couples from the lavish bures (bungalows) with private pools, an array of couples’ activities and honeymoon packages.
