Before visiting Fiji, I thought it was more of romantic sunsets and beaches but I was wrong. I was blown away by how much there is to see and do here. Not to mention the vast countryside in Fiji that offers a plethora of herbs that are ripe for the picking. Some friends of mine who work at a roofing company in Edmonton recently took a vacation to Fiji and they re-iterated my thoughts. There is way more to do in Fiji than one might think. These are my top 4 things to do in Fiji.
Take a Hike
Vanua Levu is really known for being very lush green and great food. If you love to hike and go to a lot of waterfalls, you will definitely fall in love with this place. One of those waterfalls is the Maya Moore Falls. It’s a really quick, easy hike and the falls are a lot deeper than expected. Make sure you go with the guides because if there’s so much rainfall the waterfall and the waters can change really quickly and you might have a flash flooding situation. So make sure to go with someone that knows.
Fiji has a rich history dating all the way back to 3,000 BCE and some traditions are still around today; like sustainability using the entire coconut tree. In Fijian village, they have a ceremony called the Kava ceremony. Kava is the national drink and is known for its relaxing effect. You will see dancing and there will be crafts but make sure you pack something that covers your shoulders and knees as that is the dress code.
Get in the water and see the coral reef. Unfortunately, most of the coral reefs in the world are dying but Fiji has got some of the best coral reefs in the world and some of the best diving in the world. The water here is crystal clear and you will see reef sharks but also other fish like the damselfish which are not damsels in distress. If you don’t know how to scuba, it is no big deal as there are some resort in Fiji with scuba diving certifications. So this is the place to go to if you want to learn how to scuba dive or just snorkel and enjoy.
The number one thing to do in Fiji is to celebrate Fiji time. Fiji time is kind of like island time where everything just slows down. It also gives you a mentality of just enjoying the moment, relaxing, and taking it easy. I know that sounds totally counter-intuitive since there is so much to do here and there’s so much to see.
You have come from such a faraway place and you want to do this and that but you might at the end of your vacation realize you didn’t just sit and relax and take a day to enjoy the nature and just do whatever you wanted to do and not go by a schedule. I think it is really important we take some time out to relax because we live such busy lives and sometimes it takes going to a place that slows down and the culture says just relax to have a good time. Trust me, if you take a day to just enjoy Fiji time you will not regret that. It might be the best day of your vacation.
