Romantic Land Activities on the Coral Coast
Indulge in a luxurious spa treatment together in one of the many romantic day spas on the Coral Coast. The Bebe Spa of the Outrigger Resort is set on a hillside with open-air treatment balconies offering breathtaking views. Enjoy a treatment in a private hydrotherapy pool together with a glass of bubbles in hand as you watch the sun go down. Check out more of your options in our 9 Best Day Spas on the Coral Coast.
Another romantic way to end the day is with a private dinner. Almost every resort on the Coral Coast offers some sort of private dining experience, whether it’s a seafood platter and wine dinner at the poolside of the InterContinental Resort or under the cabana on its own island at The Warwick Fiji.
There’s something quite romantic about horse riding on the Coral Coast. Discover the landscapes of the beaches and tropical forest on horseback with your loved one on horse riding tours at Mango Bay Resort and with Coral Coast Horse Riding based only moments away from the Wellesley Resort.
Romantic Water Activities on the Coral Coast
Strengthen your bond by learning how to scuba dive together! The Coral Coast is only moments away from a wealth of dive sites rich with colourful coral and marine life. It’s an exceptional place to learn with resorts like The Warwick, InterContinental, Outrigger, Mango Bay, Crusoe’s Retreat and more offering PADI-accredited scuba diving courses.
A peaceful therefore romantic way to explore the coast and lagoons of the Coral Coast is by gliding across the water in a kayak. Double kayaks are usually a staple of the Coral Coast beach resort’s water sports equipment and are usually free to use. So get in a kayak and work together to discover hidden bays and coves.
Grab onto your partner’s waist and hold on as you two embark on a breathtaking thrill ride by jet ski! Your qualified guide will teach you the basics before you embark on a jet ski trip to a breathtaking island or beach for a picnic lunch and snorkelling. Trips are available with Sunny Watersports and Hydrosports Fiji at Natadola Bay, as well as Jetski Safari Fiji near the Wellesley Resort Fiji.
Finally, unwind with your loved one at the end of the day with a drink in hand as you enjoy a sunset cruise at the InterContinental Resort. Mix your sunset cruise with a dinner show on Likuri Island (this trip can get quite busy), or enjoy a relaxing fishing cruise at sunset with Sigatoka Fishing Charters (more info on Viator and Tripadvisor).
