What makes Fiji unique?
Fiji has always been famous for its otherworldly landscape that seems to be its best physical features. But once you go under the archipelago’s fabled waters, there’s an even enticing, more outlandish thing to behold.
Fiji was dubbed as the “Soft Coral Capital of the World” over 29 years ago by Jacques Cousteau. The archipelago is home to soft corals that sports an explosion of color you won’t see in any other place in the world.
The archipelago’s underwater world holds a wonder unlike any other. Expect to see shallow lagoons rich with marine life, intriguing caverns, and canyons. And fascinating marine walls covered in coral of different colors are the highlights beneath the waves.
To see the best of the best, dive under the water of its main islands: Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. These islands hold the ultimate reason why Fiji has garnered such a reputation. Viti Levu’s northeastern reaches have an unspoiled terrain.
The conditions in Viti Levu offer a variety of experiences perfect for divers of all levels. You can expect to encounter the most brilliant assortment of Fiji’s distinctive soft corals. Which can be found in reef flats and canyons, tunnels, and swim-throughs.
But if you’re idea of water activity is more laid-back, and less adrenaline, with a side of exploration, try cruising around the many islands of Fiji. While you most likely can’t explore all of its 333 islands, Fiji offers a cruise to see the best it offers. Cruises have all-inclusive packages for everybody, whether you’re cruising solo, or with a family.
Cloudbreak is a world-class wave that takes advantage of the full force of the southern swells. It’s Fiji’s most consistent wave, with all tides and swell sizes surfable. It’s also the most difficult, unforgiving, and demanding.
With constant barrels from 0.6 to 6 meters (1.9 to 19.6 ft), this left-hand reef break is an incredible large wave site as well. They’re hollow and break over razor-sharp coral, giving even the most experienced surfers a fun yet daring challenge.
