Lush tropical rainforests, year-round sunshine, pristine coral reefs, sand-adorned shorelines and a lack of poisonous creatures make Fiji an ideal eco-tourism destination.
Travelers can pick from the 200 or so scattered isolated islands that offer a brimming palette of environmentally sound options.
There are six established national parks, four of which can be found on the main island of Viti Levu. There are nature reserves for bird watching, unique species of iguanas, dense tropical rainforests with variations of flora and fauna from region to region.
There are thousands of plants with unique medicinal value like the ‘uci’ which is great for aroma therapy. There’s also the beautiful Tagimaucia flower which is unique to the volcanic craters of Fiji’s third largest island Taveuni.
Each natural reserve has unique features that attract from all over world. The Sigatoka sand dunes have seen excavations by scientists in search of historical artefacts. Much of the dunes still store pieces of pottery and other signs of early Fijian life which tourists stumble upon. On the island of Vatulele, known for its unique red prawns, villagers have a special ceremony that “calls” the prawns to the surface. Abaca national park and the Colo i Suva national forest are a storehouse of native vegetation.
There are heaps of places that Fiji should show off including waterfalls that cascade straight into the ocean, lakes in the middle of craters, reef systems thriving with life, thermal geysers that create pools with medicinal properties, culturally significant places where the first Fijians walked and many others.
Various tours and activities are organised all year round to enable visitors to see such places. From caves and waterfalls to meandering rivers and high rise unique mountain ranges, you’re sure to find something to suit your love of awe and adventure. If you’re curious enough, there are many places to be explored on mainland as well as the outer islands. All it takes is a bit of time, a good guide and some really good hiking boots – and your swimmers… for diving into pools, the ocean or rivers along the way!
