For more information, take a look at our Wedding & Honeymoon Guide to the Coral Coast.
1. Enjoy a Romantic Sunset Cruise Together
Unwind with your loved one at the end of a day in paradise with a drink in hand as you enjoy a sunset cruise offered by resorts such as the InterContinental Fiji Resort. Mix your sunset cruise with a dinner show on Likuri Island (this trip can get quite busy though) or enjoy a relaxing private fishing cruise at sunset with Sigatoka Fishing Charters (more info on Viator and Tripadvisor).
2. Indulge in a Couples Massage
Enjoy a luxurious spa treatment together in one of the many romantic day spas on the Coral Coast. The Bebe Spa of the Outrigger Resort is set on a hillside with private open-air treatment balconies offering breathtaking views. Relax in a private hydrotherapy pool together with a glass of bubbles in hand as you watch the sun go down. See more of your spa options in our 9 Best Day Spas on the Coral Coast.
3. Have Dinner in a Private Cabana
Another romantic way to end the day is with a private dining experience. Almost every resort on the Coral Coast offers some sort of private dinner, whether it’s a seafood platter at the poolside of the InterContinental Resort or under the cabana on its own island at The Warwick Fiji. Check out more unmissable foodie experiences in our 10 Things to Do on the Coral Coast for Foodies.
4. Explore the Coast in a Double Kayak
A peaceful thus romantic way to explore the coast and lagoons of the Coral Coast is by gliding across the water’s surface in a kayak. Double kayaks are usually a staple of the Coral Coast resort’s water sports equipment so take advantage of using one. They’re usually free to hire!
5. Learn How to Scuba Dive Together
Strengthen your bond by tackling a new challenge: learning how to scuba dive together! The Coral Coast is only moments away from a wealth of dive sites rich with colourful coral gardens and marine life. It’s an exceptional place to learn with resorts like The Warwick, InterContinental, Outrigger, Mango Bay, Crusoe’s Retreat and more offering PADI-associated scuba diving courses.
6. Retreat to Your Resort’s Adult-Only Pool and Restaurant
There’s no better place to find serenity than the adult-only areas of the Coral Coast’s resort. Adult-only areas usually consist of an adults pool, a bar or a restaurant. For instance, try the Reef Wing of the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort – the quiet corner of the resort with an adults infinity pool. At the Outrigger Resort, adult guests have the chance to enjoy creative tapas and a swim-up bar in the Vahavu Pool area. Plus, for peace, you can’t do much better than The View Fiji being an adult-only resort with only four private villas! See which resorts have adult-only services in our list of 6 Adult-Only Resorts on the Coral Coast.
7. Experience the Thrills of 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! Your qualified guide will teach you the basics before you set off on a jet ski trip to a breathtaking island or beach for a picnic lunch and snorkelling. Trips like this are available with Sunny Watersports and Hydrosports Fiji at Natadola Bay, as well as Jetski Safari Fiji near the Wellesley Resort Fiji.
8. Go Horse Riding Together
There’s something quite romantic about discovering a new land on horseback. See spectacular landscapes of beaches and tropical forest on a horse riding tour along with your loved one at resorts like the Mango Bay Resort and with Coral Coast Horse Riding based moments away from the Wellesley Resort.
9. Celebrate Your Special Day Coral Coast-Style
Ok, so this activity might not be what every couple wants to do, but if you were looking for that ideal destination to tie the knot, why not the Coral Coast? A barefoot beach wedding under a floral archway, a waterfront chapel wedding, saying “I do” in the midst of tropical gardens… It’s all possible on the Coral Coast.

10. Enjoy Some Bubbles in Your Room
It’s a simple concept, but sometimes just enjoying each other’s company in your home away from home can be a great way to spend some time on your romantic getaway. Order room service or take advantage of the honeymoon treats offered by many resorts on the Coral Coast, such as Fiji Hideaway Resort, Crusoe’s Retreat and Mango Bay Resort, which offer complimentary sparkling wine for honeymooners staying at least two nights.
