Customisable Itinerary
4.5 • 2 travellers have booked with Mira Z.

Trip Overview

An archipelago of 333 islands, Fiji is an exquisite nation characterised by volcanic mountains, warm waters, spectacular coral reefs, tropical rainforests, breathtaking scenery, coconut plantations and, of course, the most incredible white-sanded beaches. On this 13-day adventure, you'll experience the best that Fiji has to offer.

A wonderful starting point on your exclusive journey, you'll spend your first night on the island of Denarau, the gateway to Fiji. World-class restaurants, pristine beaches and charming local culture will be your introduction to the Fijian way of life.

Next, you'll head to one of 30 beautiful islands in the Mamanuca archipelago. Calling Malolo Island home for the next five nights, you'll stay in a beautifully authentic overwater bure, one of the only resorts to offer this in Fiji. At this all-inclusive luxury escape, the activities on offer are abundant - diving, parasailing, snorkelling, sailing, dolphin-watching, swimming, kayaking, windsurfing and hiking.

Moving on, you'll spend the next five nights in a spectacular chain of islands in the north, known as the Yasawa Islands. These mountainous islands are covered in thick, lush vegetation and fringed by the most beautiful beaches boasting white powder sand. For those seeking an authentic tropical island getaway, the remoteness and thriving local culture of Yasawa will be the perfect secluded escape.
