Adventure Fiji

Fiji is for Adventurers

Oct 15
ExcitoreditI used to associate Fiji with escape, rest, and relaxation. With idyllic white sand beaches and calm, crystal clear water, I couldn’t imagine a better place to sunbathe with a cocktail in hand.
But when I arrived in Fiji, I was amazed at the wide variety of activities that were available on the island. From Eco-tours to scuba diving to skydiving- there are dozens of ways to experience every aspect of Fiji.
After visiting this diverse island, I now realize that Fiji is not only for honeymooners and people seeking a carefree and relaxing vacation, but also for those who love active pursuits and adrenaline inducing activities.
Here are some activities I tried in Fiji and many that I wish I would have had the time and budget to try.

Scuba Diving

The Mamanuca Islands offer famous dive sites like Gotham City and various locations inside the Malolo Barrier Reef.

This is only the tip of the iceberg of adventurous activities in Fiji. There are still so many other options, like game fishing, dolphin watching, wakeboarding, kite surfing, helicopter rides, and jungle laser tag- to name a few. Fiji is also surprisingly affordable, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank when you visit.
