14-Day Honeymoon Itinerary for Fiji
There’s hardly a better place to start the rest of your lives together than the beautiful islands of Fiji. For those lucky enough to honeymoon together for two weeks, you have the time to really explore some of the best of Fiji. This “Fiji Honeymoon Itinerary: 14 Days” not only takes you island-hopping across the idyllic islands that likely drew you to travelling in Fiji in the first place but takes you on a romantic road trip around Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu. That way, you’ll get to experience both the dreamy paradise islands and some surprises in Fiji’s rugged interior. Along the way, we’ll suggest romantic experiences and honeymoon accommodation in each destination.
Note that this itinerary is for the couple who want to see it all. For a more relaxed itinerary with less travel, see How to Spend 14 Days on a Honeymoon in Fiji TI012.
How to Get Around Fiji in 14 Days
The 14-day honeymoon itinerary below involves both road and overwater travel. Here is a quick rundown of how to get around Fiji for your honeymoon.
Overwater Transport in Fiji
The first week of this 14-day itinerary involves island-hopping in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. While the fast catamaran ferries provide a more affordable option to get between islands and Port Denarau, water taxis provide a more private experience that may be appealing for a special occasion like a honeymoon. Check out 5 Ways to Get to the Mamanuca Islands for more information. For getting back from the Yasawa Islands, we recommend a helicopter/seaplane transfer for a special honeymoon experience. Find out more in 5 Ways to Get to the Yasawa Islands.
Road Transport in Fiji
The second week of your honeymoon itinerary takes you on a road trip around Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island. Car rentals are available at Nadi International Airport where your trip begins and ends (avoiding any one-way fees). The itinerary mainly takes you on Viti Levu’s sealed roads, but note that some inland roads are gravel. Check out car rental recommendations in The Best Car Rentals in Fiji, as well as driving tips in 10 Safety Tips for Driving in Fiji.
For alternatives and more information on transport to each destination on this itinerary, see:
Day 1 – Nadi International Airport to Denarau Island
Travel Time: 20 minutes
Welcome to Fiji! Before you start your first week of island-hopping, we recommend getting over your flight at one of the fabulous five-star resorts on Denarau Island. The manmade island connected to Fiji’s mainland is a mere 20 minutes away from the airport, so you’ll be transitioning into “Fiji time” in no time. Each resort is connected by a walkway or the hop-on hop-off “Bula Bus” making resort-hopping a fun thing to do. You could also relax by the pool, perhaps treat yourself to a couples’ massage, and more following our recommendations below!
Romantic Activities on Denarau Island
- Go on a romantic island excursion to the Malamala Beach Club (more info on Viator and Tripadvisor)
- Indulge in a couple’s jet lag massage
- Treat her to a romantic dinner at a private waterfront table

For more information on each of these activities, see our 10 Romantic Activities in Denarau for Couples.
Day 2 – Denarau Island to the Mamanuca Islands
Travel time: 35-45 minutes by water taxi or catamaran ferry
It’s time to leave the little bubble of Denarau Island behind and start discovering some of the idyllic islands that you came to Fiji to see. The Mamanuca Islands is a group of 20-something islands scattered across turquoise waters. Each island is small, either with an interior of swaying coconut palms or with an ancient volcanic peak. There’s an island resort in the Mamanucas to suit all honeymoon budgets, whether you’re looking for a down-to-earth adventure in a backpacker resort or absolute luxury in an adult-only retreat. Check out your options below and relax for your first night on the Mamanuca Islands.

Day 3 – Mamanuca Islands
The Mamanucas make a beautiful setting for romance with its glistening waters, soft sands and balmy ocean breeze. Complimentary activities like stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking or hiking make an intimate way to explore your surroundings – just the two of you. Or how about treating yourselves to a special experience like a secluded beach picnic where your resort will organise transport and a gourmet lunch to take with you. Or for more active couples, how about strengthening your bond by learning a new skill together, such as scuba diving? PADI Open Water courses take 3-4 days to complete and can be transferred to another PADI dive centre (of which there are many in Fiji) if you don’t finish it during your stay in the Mamanucas.

This morning, hop back on your water taxi or the South Sea Cruises ferry (on Viator and Tripadvisor) to your next destination: the remote Yasawa Islands. You’ll notice how the islands are slightly larger with more dramatic scenery here where resorts and Fijian villages often share the same island, so immersing in the Fijian culture is effortless.
