1. Retreat to a Private Island for the Day
Get marooned together on a deserted island, with the comforts of a tropical picnic lunch and snorkel gear, of course. Resorts such as the Beqa Lagoon Resort and Nanuku Auberge Resort offer private island experiences for couples to enjoy some alone time together in a stunning location. Snorkel among vibrant reefs, explore lush tropical forests and indulge in a gourmet picnic lunch on an uninhabited island. You can even stay in a safari tent overnight, complete with a barbecue dinner, with the Nanuku Resort experience. For more ways to spend the day, see The Best Day Trips from the Pacific Harbour.
2. Enjoy a Sunset Cruise with Canapes and Drinks
Feel the gentle breeze through your hair, spot dolphins and shark fins on the water’s surface, watch the pink hues wash over the landscape… A sunset cruise is a popular way to spend a romantic evening on the Pacific Harbour. Resorts like the Nanuku Resort, Kulu Bay Resort and Lalati Resort all offer sunset cruises with canapes and drinks included, making your cruise all the more indulgent.
3. Share a Sensual Experience in a Couples Massage
Share a blissful state of relaxation together in a romantic couples massage. Feel the balmy island breeze wash over you as you unwind with a massage in the open-air bure of the Beqa Lagoon Resort or indulge in one of the exclusive couples treatment rooms of The Pearl Resort‘s spa.

4. Indulge in one of the Resorts’ Romance Packages
Make planning the perfect honeymoon, anniversary or just a plain old romantic getaway easy with one of the romance packages for the Pacific Harbour’s outer islands. The Lalati Resort & Spa on Beqa Island has a romance package including a 1-hour couples massage, a private dinner for two on a candlelit pier, a lagoon cruise and a Pure Fiji spa gift pack. Kulu Bay Resort offers catered romance packages for each couple which usually include something similar to a romantic private dinner, a 1-hour massage per person, a sunset cruise, a fruit basket and some salusalus (Fijian leis).
5. Learn How to Scuba Dive Together in the Beqa Lagoon
Nothing strengthens the bond quite like learning a new skill together. Make that new skill a qualified scuba diver! What better location to learn how to scuba dive than the lively Beqa Lagoon fringed with hard and soft coral reefs. Most of the resorts on the Pacific Harbour & Beqa Island have either their own PADI-associated dive centre or can organise your scuba diving lessons/trip for you. Alternatively, book your scuba dive with Aqua Trek on Viator or Tripadvisor.
6. Explore Hidden Coves and Inlets in a Double Kayak
Test your ability to work together by exploring the Fijian shores in a double kayak. Work in harmony as you discover hidden bays, coves and inlets of the islands using the kayaks that are always free to use at your resort. If you prefer, resorts like the Beqa Lagoon Resort offer guided kayak trips to show you the hidden gems of Beqa Island, as well as stopping off on a beach for a picnic lunch. You can also kayak to the secluded “Bat Island” with Lalati Resort or swap the kayak for complimentary use of stand-up paddleboards or Hobie Cat sailing boats at the Royal Davui Island Resort.
7. Treat Your Loved One to a Private Picnic on a Secluded Beach
Treat here to a unique dining experience with a beach picnic on an uninhabited island. Private beach picnics are a staple of Fijian island resorts offering seclusion on a sandbar or private beach only accessible by boat. The resort chefs will prepare you a special gourmet lunch, maybe you could order a bottle of bubbles to go with it, then you’ll be transported to your own special beach location for the day. Who knows, this could be a good time to ask the big question?
8. Experience Adventure on a Jet Ski Safari
With your partner holding onto your waist as you speed along the sparkling waters of the Beqa Lagoon to the breathtaking tropical paradise of Beqa Island, jet skiing on the Pacific Harbour is the perfect way to mix adventure and romance. Jump on one of the Yamaha VX700 jet skis with Jet Ski Safari and follow your guide on a 65km (40 miles) journey around the reefs and islands of the Beqa Lagoon, stopping along the way for lunch on the beach.
9. Stay in a Luxury or Adult-only Resort
Set the tone right by staying in one of the Pacific Harbour’s adult-only or luxury resorts. Resorts like the Royal Davui Island Resort are set on their own private island exclusively for guests over 16 years old. The Lalati Resort & Spa only welcomes guests above the age of 12, and luxury resorts like the Nanuku Auberge Resort provide plenty of private activities so you can enjoy your “Fiji time” undisturbed. Find out more in our The Adult Only Guide to Pacific Harbour & Beqa.
10. Say “I Do” in Paradise
A barefoot beach wedding under a floral archway, a ceremony among lush tropical gardens, a wedding chapel with an ocean view… All of this and more is possible for your big day on the Pacific Harbour and Beqa Island. The resorts on the Pacific Harbour are some of the most romantic in Fiji with stunning wedding venues and packages to match.
