Fiji has over 300 islands in its archipelago, each fringed with coral reefs and lapped by warm azure waters - the diving and snorkelling are superb. Amid its wealth of natural beauty, Fiji's true magic lies in its people and the fascinating blend of their diverse cultures. Fiji is an interesting blend of Melanesian, Polynesian, Micronesian, Indian, Chinese and European influences. For nearly 50 years, until the military coup of 1987 and the Indian emigration that followed it, the indigenous people of Fiji represented an ethnic minority in their own land.

Listen to the waves that crash along the white sands of the thatched resorts and look above at the prominent blue skies hidden behind the froth of the cumulus clouds. Now feel the hotness of the tropical sun and wetness of the humid air draping all over ... Read more >
