One of the most developed countries in the South Pacific, yet with only a third of her islands inhabited, Fiji is a unique, English-speaking, destination. The country is able to offer honeymooners the comforts and activities they want - such as upscale resorts, fantastic restaurants and various water sports - without the things they don't...like bulging crowds and high prices.
Location of Fiji
From Australia and New Zealand, Fiji is only a short, three or four hour flight. Leave the South Island and her arctic wind in the morning, and arrive in Fiji's tropical climate in the afternoon! Travelers from North America can expect an easy overnight flight from Los Angeles, lasting 10 hours.
Fiji's wedding ceremonies
Is there a more stunning place to recognize your beautiful love than in Fiji?

The American, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand dollar all go further in Fiji than they do back home. The euro and pound stretch even more.
Honeymooners reap the benefits of traveling on strong currencies by enjoying gourmet meals, relaxing in luxury accommodation and welcoming opportunities - such as SCUBA diving - that they would not be able to experience at home.
Fijian culture and traditions

The opportunity to interact with locals in a small village should not be overlooked, nor the experience of drinking kava with your new friends.
The laid back lifestyle will soon have you reveling in the happy bliss of the Fijian isles and her people.
The swaying trees, the sounds of lapping waves, your own private beach...romance is in Fiji's air - and water! The secluded areas provide you and your partner ample opportunities to explore the world around you and enjoy your time in paradise. Unlike more popular destinations like Hawaii, accommodation options in Fiji tend to be individual bungalows instead of small rooms in a high-rise resort.
There is no shortage of activities available to Fiji visitors. Relax on the sugar-white sand at beach resorts, dive down into the turquoise waters to discover why the nation is called the 'soft coral capital' of the world, or spend your day hiking around the rainforests.
There are plenty of historical and cultural sites to explore too, including Fiji's largest Hindu temple, in Nadi, and the world's largest collection of Fijian artifacts at the Fiji Museum in Suva.
