Creating vacation at a time!


The Fiji Islands is an archipelago of 330 picturesque islands in the heart of the South Pacific of which only 106 are inhabited.  The main island is Viti Levu, where Nadi, the international airport, and Suva, the capital, are located.  Vanua Levu, northeast of Viti Levu, is the second largest island and is where the towns of Savusavu and Lambasa are located.  The third  largest island is Taveuni which is just southeast of Vanua Levu.  Other island groups in the Fiji archipelago are the Mamanucas, the Yasawas, the Northern Lau Group and the Southern Lau Group.

I traveled to Fiji with the Fiji Tourist Bureau and Captain Cook Cruises and  fell in love with the islands. A large group of travel agents traveled far and wide throughout the islands and we all came away with the same conclusion - that Fiji is a wonderful destination to send our clients! Since then, I have gone back to the islands three more times.   Fiji is for anyone who likes a tropical destination, likes to travel to exotic destinations and likes to experience different cultures.   Below is a list of reasons why you might want to consider your next vacation to be in Fiji!  


  • English is spoken.
  • Warm and wonderful people.  The most beautiful smiles in the world!
  • Great location for families - babysitting is inexpensive and Kid’s Clubs abound. 
  • Great value for your money.   The Fijian dollar is 2-to-1 to the US dollar.   The food is inexpensive and there is great shopping - tapa cloth, garments, wood carvings, sulas.  
  • Plenty of things to do.
  • Quiet and relaxing.
  • Interesting Culture - sharing a Kava bowl with the Fijians might be one of the highlights of your vacation!  The Fijian culture is still intact and the Fijians live it everyday.
  • Good beaches.
  • Private islands.
  • Stay in a thatch-roofed bure.
  • Eco-adventure
  • Great diving and snorkeling!  Fiji is the Soft Coral Capital of the World and is one of the top 10 dive destinations in the world.
