3-Day Honeymoon Itinerary for Fiji

There’s hardly a better place to start the rest of your lives together than on the paradise islands of Fiji. Couples looking to spend their short honeymoon on Fiji’s smaller islands, this Fiji Honeymoon Itinerary: 3 Days is for you.

This Fiji honeymoon itinerary takes you from the arrival airport in Fiji, Nadi International Airport, to the Mamanuca Islands and back. We also include recommendations for romantic experiences in the Mamanucas and honeymoon accommodation on each island.

Note that this itinerary is for the couple who don’t mind travelling to get to some stunning islands. For a more relaxed itinerary with less travel, see How to Spend 3 Days on a Honeymoon in Fiji TI027.

How to Get Around Fiji in 3 Days

The three-day honeymoon itinerary below involves minimal road travel but mostly overwater travel as you island-hop from Viti Levu (Fiji’s main island) to the Mamanuca Islands and back. Here is a quick rundown of how to get around the islands of Fiji.

Overwater Transport in Fiji

For getting between Viti Levu and the Mamanuca Islands, fast catamaran ferries have scheduled departures from Port Denarau. Alternatively, water taxis provide a more private experience that can adapt to your schedule – ideal for a honeymoon on limited time. For getting back from the Mamanuca Islands, we recommend a helicopter/seaplane transfer for a real honeymoon treat. Check out 5 Ways to Get to the Mamanuca Islands for more details, plus alternative transport methods.

Road Transport in Fiji

The first day of this itinerary will require you to take road transport to Port Denarau from Nadi International Airport. This can be done via taxi, private transfer or even the bus. Many of the catamaran and water taxis companies also offer airport transfers, so keep that in mind. Find out more in 5 Ways to Get to Denarau Island.

Day 1 – Nadi International Airport to the Mamanuca Islands

Travel time: 20 minutes by road, 35-45 minutes by water taxi or catamaran ferry

Welcome to Fiji! Because you only have three days, we recommend getting out of Nadi soon after landing and start making your way to a more romantic setting, the Mamanucas. The Mamanuca Islands are a group of 20-something islands scattered across azure waters. Each island is small, either with an interior of coconut palms or a volcanic peak. Across many of these paradise islands are resorts to suit all styles and budgets, whether you’re looking for a down-to-earth backpacker resort or absolute luxury in an adult-only retreat – check out our recommendations below. So after your scenic catamaran or water taxi transfer from Port Denarau, check into your island resort and starting feeling the romance of these paradise islands.

Day 2 – Mamanuca Islands

Today, you have the time to do as much (or as little) as you want, as you have a full day to spend on your chosen island in the Mamanucas. Complimentary activities like stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking or hiking are a personal way to explore your surroundings or how about treating yourselves to a special experience like a private beach picnic? Check out more suggestions in the list below and in The Wedding & Honeymoon Guide to the Mamanuca Islands.

Romantic Activities in the Mamanuca Islands

Day 3 – Mamanuca Islands to Nadi International Airport

Travel time: 10-15 minutes

This is the moment when you realise that you should have spent way more time in Fiji! Nevertheless, bring your Fiji honeymoon to a special end by embarking on an intimate helicopter or seaplane flight over the Mamanuca Islands. There’s nothing like seeing the small islands and vast coral reefs decorating the ocean from a birds-eye-view. Your flight will bring you directly to Nadi International Airport where you can catch your flight out of Fiji with ease.
