How to Get to Fiji

First things first, you’ll need to see if you are actually able to travel to Fiji due to restrictions put in place at the borders after the COVID-19 outbreak. Visit Tourism Fiji‘s website for the latest travel information.

Next, what is the best way to get to Fiji? Fiji can be accessed by flight, cruise ship or private sailing yachts. The most popular way to get to Fiji is by international flight, so let’s start with that.

Flying to Fiji

Direct international flights come from Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Nauru, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Wallis & Futuna, the US and South Korea. If you are coming from further afield, then you will need to make a connecting flight most likely in Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Hawaii. See How Long Does it Take to Fly to Fiji? for more information.

Although Fiji has two international airports, around 97% of visitors to Fiji come via Nadi International Airport on the island of Viti Levu (Fiji’s main island). Learn more in our guide, Which Airport to Arrive in Fiji.

Cruises to Fiji

Fiji is on the itinerary of several South Pacific cruises from Australia, New Zealand and French Polynesia. There are five ports of call in Fiji, the main ones being Suva, Lautoka and Port Denarau. Find out about which cruiseliners have Fiji on their itinerary, as well as what to do at each port of call in The Guide to Taking a Cruise to Fiji.

Sailing to Fiji

Fiji is conveniently located at the centre of the Transpacific journey between the US and New Zealand. The yachting season is between May and October. Learn about the sailing formalities and the ports of entry in The Sailing Guide to Fiji.

A Note on Customs Declarations

Fiji has strict biosecurity measures at the border to stop unwanted pests and diseases from entering the country. Therefore, anyone arriving in Fiji has to declare any “risk items” they have packed in their luggage – even common items like food and sports gear. Be sure to read up on Everything You Need to Know About Arriving in Fiji so you are prepared.

When to Visit + The Best Time to Get Married in Fiji

Fiji is a tropical country and experiences warm temperatures throughout the year. It has two distinct seasons, a dry season which is drier and cooler, and a wet season which is hotter and humid. Learn more about the climate in What is the Weather Like in Fiji?

Dry Season (May to November)

The dry season is also known as the winter season in Fiji, although many would not describe it as winter with temperatures around 19-29°C (66-84°F). The rainfall per month is an average of 70-150mm (2.8-6″). The dry season is also the time for swimming with manta rayssurfing big waves, clearer scuba diving conditions and catching sailfish, skipjack tuna and wahoo.

Wet Season (December to April)

The wet season is hotter and more humid, with temperatures around 22-33°C (72-91°F) and an average monthly rainfall of 180-310mm (2.8-6″). This is also Fiji’s cyclone season, which means there’s a risk of cyclones (but only a risk, which you can learn more about in How to Prepare for a Cyclone in Fiji). The wet season is also the best time for catching Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna and Mahimahi, as well as avoiding other tourists.

The Best Time to Get Married in Fiji

When planning a wedding in Fiji, you’ll find that each season has its own benefits, which include:

Benefits of Getting Married in the Dry Season

  • The weather is more likely to be sunny and beautiful
  • The humidity is low, making it comfortable to wear a wedding dress
  • It makes a warm retreat from the cold winter in some of the lower Southern Hemisphere countries
  • It’s the best season for surfing, scuba diving and swimming with manta rays.

Benefits of Getting Married in the Wet Season

  • There are cheaper resort rates
  • You’re more likely to get cheaper airfares
  • There’s the opportunity for discounted or free wedding packages
  • Feel like you have the islands to yourselves.

Check out the details of each point in When is the Best Time to Plan a Wedding in Fiji?

What to Pack for Fiji: Couples’ Packing List

The main thing you need to keep in mind when packing for Fiji is having a tropical wardrobe that includes some more modest items of clothing for visiting Fijian villages. A packing list for Fiji might look a little something like this:

  • Shorts/Skirts/Dresses some below the knee for village visits
  • Singlets/T-Shirts
  • Light shirts/T-shirts to cover the shoulders for village visits
  • Light cotton shirt to cover arms for sun protection
  • Sarong (Sulu) to cover your legs on village visits
  • Light sleepwear
  • Light jacket/Cardigan/Pashmina for cooler evenings
  • Outfit for smart/casual dress-code restaurants at luxury resorts
  • Underwear
  • Bikini/Boardshorts
  • One-piece swimsuit for watersports/village stay for women
  • Rash vest for sun and surf protection
  • Sunhat
  • Sunglasses
  • Light rain jacket if visiting in the wet season
  • Flip-flops/sandals
  • Reef shoes
  • Walking shoes/sandals

And that’s just clothes! For a full packing list of everything to take, including accessories and toiletries, check out The Complete Packing List for Fiji.

Health Products

Although the water in towns is generally safe to drink, there is questionable drinking water in Fiji’s villages and more remote islands – see Can You Drink the Water in Fiji? That coupled with high UV levels and the presence of mosquitos means that certain health products are essential to take to Fiji.

Fiji also has a fragile marine ecosystem so natural sunscreens and mosquito repellents are a must, while water purification bottles/tablets are preferable to buying bottled water for obvious environmental reasons. See our health essentials packing list in What Medication to Pack in Your First Aid Kit for Fiji.

Fiji Currency

The currency in Fiji is Fijian Dollars. While credit/debit cards are accepted in major resorts and businesses in Fiji’s towns, you should have cash available for taxis and visiting villages. If you need more information, just head to What is the Currency in Fiji?

Wedding Packing List

Of course, every couple will have their own packing list to curate the ideal wedding in Fiji. But remember, you can pack light if you choose one of the very comprehensive Best Wedding Packages in Fiji. Nevertheless, there are a few essential documents to bring to legally wed in Fiji:

  • Birth certificates
  • Passports with valid visas
  • A single status certificate
  • Divorce certificates, if applicable
  • Death certificates of a spouse, if applicable

How Long to Honeymoon in Fiji For

Admittedly, Fiji makes an idyllic getaway for just staying in the same resort for a few days to a week – and that’s fine; we all need some R&R from time to time. More intrepid couples, however, will find that Fiji is an excellent country not only for island-hopping but road tripping around Viti Levu.

For those of you who want to explore, here’s what you can achieve in certain timeframes… (And don’t worry, we’ll get onto the destinations in the next few sections).

3 Days / A Long Weekend in Fiji

Over a long weekend, you will have enough time to explore Nadi, Denarau and the Coral Coast or perhaps take a quick trip to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. See an example itinerary in the Fiji Honeymoon & Romance Itinerary: 3 Days.

5 Days in Fiji

Five days is enough time for a quick island-hopping itinerary in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands or check out Fiji’s landscape of resorts and adventure activities along the Coral Coast and Pacific Harbour. Alternatively, those with more budget could take a charter flight to and between Vanua Levu and Taveuni. Check out Fiji Honeymoon & Romance Itinerary: 5 Days for more inspiration.

7 Days / One Week in Fiji

A week in Fiji gives you time to relax in any one of the island groups, but for those who want to move around, you could take a road trip around Viti Levu or do some island-hopping in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. Alternatively, you could explore between the two less-visited islands, Vanua Levu and Taveuni. See Fiji Honeymoon & Romance Itinerary: 7 Days (Idyllic Islands) and Fiji Honeymoon & Romance Itinerary: 7 Days (Viti Levu Road Trip) for trip ideas.

14 Days / Two Weeks in Fiji

14 days allows you to extend itineraries suggested for a week. It will also give you time to explore a mix of Viti Levu and the Mamanuca/Yasawa Islands or Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and Taveuni, or a week in Kadavu and a week in Viti Levu… Check out more suggestions in Fiji Honeymoon & Romance Itinerary: 14 Days.

When to Arrive in Fiji for Getting Married

Couples should arrive in Fiji at least three days before their wedding day. This gives you enough time to settle into your accommodation, visit a registry office to finalise the Marriage License, and finetune any other things before the big day. Note that registry offices are closed on weekends and public holidays, so you will need to take this into account when planning what day to arrive in Fiji.

Where to Visit: Weddings and Honeymoons in Viti Levu

Viti Levu is Fiji’s largest island, which has several unique destinations within it. What’s more, it’s the arrival island for Fiji meaning that any wedding here is going to be the easiest and the least expensive Fiji destination for your friends and family to get to.

Nadi, Denarau and the Coral Coast

Newly-weds or spouses-to-be who are looking for an easy romantic escape, check out the regions of Viti Levu known as Nadi, Denarau and the Coral Coast. If you don’t have enough time to head to the remotest outer reaches of Fiji, basing yourself in Nadi for your romantic getaway or honeymoon is a spectacular alternative. There are many romantic activities and luxurious resorts, not to mention the beautiful weather, all accessible from Nadi. Check out The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to Nadi to learn more.

Situated just 25 minutes from Nadi International Airport, Denarau will transition you, your hubby and your wedding guests into Fiji mode soon after landing. Denarau is also ideal for newlyweds with limited honeymooning time to celebrate the rest of their lives together in style. Learn more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to Denarau.

And along the southern coast of Viti Levu is the Coral Coast, which is often referred to as the most picturesque part of the island thanks to its white-sand beaches lined with lush greenery and vibrant blue waters. We guide you through the accommodation, activities, wedding venues and honeymoon packages in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to the Coral Coast.

Pacific Harbour, Suva and the Suncoast

Located in the eastern and northern regions of Viti Levu, the Pacific Harbour, Suva and the Suncoast are other easy destinations to get to yet off the beaten track. Starting with the Pacific Harbour, it might have made its name as the “adventure capital of Fiji” but we honestly feel it should be the “romance capital” thanks to its breathtaking off-shore islands, the vibrant waters of the Beqa Lagoon and effortless romance found in the experiences available at each resort. Find out more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to Pacific Harbour & Beqa.

Fiji’s capital, Suva, is not many couples’ first choice for a destination wedding or honeymoon but the exciting city vibes, manicured waterfront parks and historic hotels just might be what you’re looking for. Find out more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to Suva.

Finally, with dazzling sunsets and the luxury of being Fiji’s best-kept secret, the Suncoast is well worth considering for your Fiji wedding or honeymoon. For couples looking for an alternative experience to busy resorts, this less-visited area of Fiji is just the place. Learn more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to the Suncoast.

Where to Visit: Weddings and Honeymoons in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands

The scattering of tiny coral atolls in the Mamanucas and the ruggedly beautiful volcanic islands of the Yasawas make an iconic Fiji backdrop to an island wedding. With an array of resorts offering wedding and honeymoon packages, planning a toes-in-the-sand wedding is made easy at these islands groups.

Mamanuca Islands

One of the most picturesque island groups in the South Pacific, the Mamanuca Islands makes the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. The group of around 20 islands is located either 30 minutes to one-hour ferry journey from Denarau or a 10-minute helicopter flight from Nadi or Denarau. We guide you through the wedding venues, proposal ideas, romantic accommodations and activities in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to the Mamanuca Islands.

Yasawa Islands

The Yasawa Islands of Fiji provides an utterly romantic getaway approximately a 2-4 hour ferry journey or a 30-minute charter flight from the mainland. We guide you through the stunning places to stay, the romantic activities, wedding venues, proposal ideas and more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to the Yasawa Islands.

Where to Visit: Weddings and Honeymoons in Vanua Levu and Taveuni

Fiji’s northern islands are often the forgotten frontier when it comes to honeymoons and weddings. That’s what makes them so magical. Just a one-hour flight north from Nadi brings you to the verdant islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni, home to pristine wilderness combined with authentic villages and small Indo-Fijian towns. In the mix are some lavish resorts ideal for a romantic getaway or special occasion.

Vanua Levu

Fiji’s second-largest island is a world away from its big sister, Viti Levu. With picturesque waterfalls, pristine sandy beaches, isolated islands and even a coral reef shaped like a heart, there are many perfect settings for romantic moments. What’s more, planning your special day here couldn’t be easier with the limited yet highly revered resorts on the island offering premium wedding packages and venues. Find out about them all and more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to Vanua Levu.

Taveuni

With lush jungles laced in cascading waterfalls, pristine sandy beaches and azure waters full of vibrant coral, Taveuni sure sets the scene for a romantic holiday. A special place on earth such as Fiji’s “Garden Island” calls for a special occasion, whether it’s for saying your vows or enjoying your first holiday away together as a couple. Learn more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to Taveuni.

Where to Visit: Weddings and Honeymoons in Kadavu, Lomaiviti and Lau Islands

Couples looking for a romantic getaway that’s as unique as they are, that they can almost guarantee that they’ll know no one who has had their wedding or honeymoon here, consider one of Fiji’s lesser-visited islands like Kadavu, the Lomaiviti Islands or even the Lau Islands.

Kadavu

This large island south of Viti Levu is awash in luxuriant forests, volcanic cliffs and azure waters holding the world’s fourth-largest barrier reef. In Kadavu, couples can choose private island luxury to simple barefoot getaways to immerse in the local culture, wildlife and rhythm of the island. Find out more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to Kadavu.

Lomaiviti Islands

If you like the idea of the Yasawa and Mamanuca Islands but are looking for a less-visited alternative, why not choose the Lomaivitis? Just off the coast of Suva, the Lomaiviti Islands offer intriguing colonial and Fijian history, a diverse and untouched underwater seascape, and private island resorts wrapped in luxury. Learn more in The Wedding, Honeymoon & Romantic Getaway Guide to the Lomaiviti Islands.

Lau Islands

Finally, if you’re looking for a romantic getaway to some untouched islands in the South Pacific, then the Lau Islands are pretty tempting. You won’t find any wedding services like what is available in the resorts around other Fiji island groups, but Lau Group can, however, be an ultra-special honeymoon destination with the island group’s one luxury resort or through a sailing charter. Learn more in The Complete Guide to the Lau Islands.

How to Get Around Fiji

Yes, after seeing the number of island groups in Fiji, let alone the different islands and some of the larger islands to explore, you’re probably wondering: how do I get around all of these islands?

Transport differs between island groups. More touristic islands, such as the Mamanucas and Yasawas are well serviced with ferries, seaplanes and water taxis, while the lesser-visited islands may only have transport that is provided by your chosen resort. The main ways to get around Fiji include:

Domestic Flights

There are two scheduled domestic carriers in Fiji, both offering regular flights between Fiji’s most populated islands. Learn more about these flights in The Complete Guide to Flights in Fiji.

Charter Flights

Charter flights via fixed-wing, seaplane and helicopter aircraft are available in Fiji to take passengers between Fiji’s island groups, particularly Viti Levu and the Mamanucas, Yasawas, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and Kadavu. Find out more in Where to Hire a Plane or Seaplane in Fiji and Where to Hire a Helicopter in Fiji.

Ferries

High-speed catamaran ferries service the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands from Port Denarau in Viti Levu, while the slower passenger, vehicle and cargo ferries run from Suva in Viti Levu to the Lomaiviti Islands, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and Kadavu. Find out more in The Guide to Travelling in Fiji by Ferry.

Romantic Wedding and Honeymoon Accommodation in Fiji

First and foremost, Fiji is a country of resorts. In most cases, resorts handle everything: accommodation, entertainment, tours and sometimes even transport and your wedding. For these reasons, one of the most important decisions you can make for a trip to Fiji is where you are going to stay.

That’s not to say that Fiji solely has resorts. If that’s not your style, then you have lodges, hotels, homestays, holiday homes, villas and even small-ship cruises to choose from.

Romantic Resorts

The most abundant accommodation type in Fiji, resorts are typically complexes with hotel-style rooms or freestanding bure (bungalows) and facilities such as a restaurant and swimming pool. Many resorts across Fiji, especially on remote islands, offer an entertainment schedule, as well as optional paid tours, such as scuba diving, fishing, massages and more. Note that there are also adults-only resorts in Fiji should you be looking for something more tranquil.

It’s also worth mentioning the honeymoon and wedding packages available at resorts, which usually entail an all-inclusive vacation for one price or a few freebies like bubbles in your room, pre-dinner canapés, etc. See The Best Wedding Packages in Fiji and the 10 Best Honeymoon Packages in Fiji for more information.

Dive deeper into what a resort entails in How to Pick the Best Resort in Fiji for You. Plus, don’t miss the Fiji Couples’ Resorts: 55 Best Wedding & Honeymoon Resorts in Fiji.

Romantic Hotels

International-style hotels can be found in Fiji’s largest towns, such as Nadi, Suva and Lautoka. The rest of Fiji’s hotels are typically budget hotels found across Fiji’s smaller towns on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Learn more in How to Pick the Best Hotel in Fiji for You. Plus, browse our 10 Best Hotels in Fiji.

Holiday Homes and Villas

For a more intimate style of accommodation in Fiji, choose a holiday home or villa. Note that these are some of the very few self-catering accommodations available in Fiji and can usually only be found on Fiji’s larger islands, like Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and Taveuni.

Learn more about what holiday homes are like in How to Pick the Best Holiday Home in Fiji for You and villas in How to Pick the Best Villa in Fiji for You. Plus, find the ideal stay in the 10 Beautiful Holiday Homes in Fiji and 10 Best Luxury Villas in Fiji.

Homestays

Becoming more and more abundant in Fiji with the popularity of booking websites like Airbnb, Booking.com and Expedia, homestays are where locals open up their spare room to visitors. With many homestays available in Fijian villages, this can be a truly authentic way to experience the Fijian culture. Note, however, that this is not an appropriate accommodation choice for travellers who like their luxuries and modern comforts.

Find out more about what a homestay is like in How to Pick the Best Homestay in Fiji for You. And pick a homestay from the 10 Best Homestays in Fiji.

Small-Ship Cruises

Fiji has two small-ship cruises sailing primarily to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands and less frequent sailings to other island groups throughout the year. Each offer cabin accommodation along with the opportunity to visit different islands, free and optional paid activities, and meals. One of the cruise companies even offers wedding packages. Learn more about these cruises in The Guide to Cruises Around Fiji.

Romantic Things to Do in Fiji

Contrary to popular belief, there’s more to do in Fiji than drink cocktails and sit by the pool. Fiji exceeds at adventure, relaxation and culture. There’s so much to do that we could hardly fit it all into our 101 Things to Do in Fiji: The Ultimate List.

When it comes to more “romantic” experiences in Fiji, here are our recommendations:

Food and Dining in Fiji

From the menus of the restaurants in Fiji’s major towns to the resort restaurants, a wide range of international cuisine is represented in Fiji. Fijian foods are also easy enough to come by especially on resort menus, while Indo-Fijian cuisine is best sampled at town curry houses.

There are no major health concerns to be worried about when it comes to food in Fiji. Resort restaurants have a high standard. However, one should be a little wary when it comes to street food – it’s best to try food that is cooked and to avoid drinking tap water (or treat it) if you’re unsure of the quality.

Self-catering is rarely available in Fiji, only in villas, holiday homes and apartments. See the Guide to Food Shopping in Fiji for purchasing groceries.

Vegetarian options are widely available in Fiji, but those with other dietary requirements should contact their resorts prior to arrival. Although most resorts can cater to just about any dietary need, they tend to need notice in order to prepare.
