7-Day Honeymoon Itinerary for Fiji Visiting Islands
There’s hardly a better place to start the rest of your lives together than the archipelago of Fiji.

The itinerary takes you from the luxury resort hub of Denarau Island across the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands and back. We include recommendations for romantic experiences and honeymoon accommodation in each destination.

How to Get Around Fiji in 7 Days
The 7-day honeymoon itinerary below involves a little road travel but mostly overwater travel. Here is a quick rundown of how to get around Fiji.
Overwater Transport in Fiji
The majority of this 7-day itinerary involves island-hopping in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. While the fast catamaran ferries provide a slightly more affordable option to get between islands and Port Denarau on the mainland, water taxis provide a more private experience that’s appealing for a honeymoon. Check out 5 Ways to Get to the Mamanuca Islands for more details and alternative transport. For getting back from the Yasawa Islands to the mainland, we recommend a helicopter/seaplane transfer for a honeymoon treat. Find out more information in 5 Ways to Get to the Yasawa Islands.
Road Transport in Fiji
The first day of this itinerary will require you to take road transport to Denarau Island from Nadi International Airport. This can be done by taxi, private resort transfers and even the bus. Find out more in 5 Ways to Get to Denarau Island.
Day 1 – Nadi International Airport to Denarau Island
Travel time: 20 minutes
Welcome to Fiji! Before you start your week of island-hopping, we recommend getting over the jet lag at one of the fabulous five-star resorts on Denarau Island. The island connected to Fiji’s mainland is a mere 20 minutes away from the airport, so you’ll be transitioning into Fiji time quicker than, well, “Fiji time“. Each resort is connected by a waterfront walkway or the hop-on hop-off Bula Bus making resort-hopping a fun way to spend your time. You could also relax by the pool, treat yourself to a couples’ massage, and more following our recommendations below.
Romantic Activities on Denarau Island
- Go on a romantic island day trip to the Malamala Beach Club (more info on Viator and Tripadvisor)
- Indulge in a romantic couple’s massage
- Treat her to dinner at a private waterfront table
- Enjoy a private cruise to a secret snorkelling spot
- Spend the afternoon in one of the adult-only complexes

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 luxury bubble of Denarau Island and start discovering some of the idyllic islands that Fiji is famous for. The Mamanuca Islands is a group of 20-something islands scattered across turquoise waters. Each island is small, either with an interior of lush coconut palms or an ancient volcanic peak. There’s an island resort in the Mamanucas to suit all 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 for where to spend the next couple of nights on the Mamanuca Islands.

Or how about treating yourselves to a special experience like a secluded beach picnic where your resort will organise transport and a gourmet lunch? 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 Mamanuca Islands.

Resorts and Fijian villages often share the same island, so immersing in the Fijian culture is effortless when staying in a Yasawa Islands resort. Speaking of, get settled into your resort.
