These islands in Fiji's west are a must-see for newcomers, boasting a range of striking landscapes and wildlife unique to the area that fun-loving couples can explore together. Roam the jagged volcanic mountains on Waya Island, dive with fascinating manta rays in the deep blue waters and take a boat through the Sawa-i-Lau Caves. This hidden gem provides a secluded spot for couples to tick off bucket list items hand in hand.
Time moves slower on Fiji, so why not get in some much-deserved rest and relaxation as a couple. Stroll through Taveuni Forest Reserve as brilliant, rare birdlife streaks through the greenery around you, and laze on the golden sands of Lavena Beach. Paddle through the clear green water below Tavoro Waterfall and snorkel off Rainbow Reef to enjoy one of the most world-renowned coral reefs for admiring the stunning flora and fauna.
More rural and less crowded than Viti Levu, Fiji's second-largest island boasts hidden gems perfect for couples looking to explore secluded jungle paths and wade through isolated waterfall pools. See glimpses of other cultures at Naag Mandir Temple and enjoy the chance to slow down together without missing out on soft white beaches, deep blue waters and wildlife reserves.
Navala is Fiji's only opportunity to see the traditional way of life for the island's indigenous people. Couples who love to learn and people-watch together can walk through the village and admire traditional thatched huts, or bure, that the island's indigenous people have lived in for centuries. Set against the bright green rolling hills of the island's jungle and farmlands, this destination opens a window into a relatively unknown past.
The tall volcanic mountains on Viti Levu provide natural landscapes unique to this part of the world. Adventurous couples can kayak through the bright green waters of the Navua River and hike the rainforest in the Namosi Highlands, or eat at a local restaurant overlooking the sparkling sands of Natadola Beach.
