Sigatoka River Safari
Sigatoka River Safaris combine exhilarating jet boating with Fijian culture, taking you into the heart of Fiji to meet locals on authentic village tours. The jet boats have local drivers who teach you all about the history of the area before you are fully immersed in the Fijian culture at one of the many villages they work with.

Situated on Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island, this is heralded as the island’s best beach and one look at the photos it’s easy to see why. It can be busy with tourists but the all-tide swimming and surf break make it worth risking the crowds. If you’re keen to give surfing a go, Adrenalin Fiji offer lessons on Natadola Beach – what could be a better holiday brag story than ‘I learnt to surf on the best beach in Fiji!’ If you’re keen to be in the middle of the action, Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa, is situated right on the beach and offers five restaurants and bars, plunge pools and a day spa.

Cloud 9 brings a whole new meaning to party boat. It’s a two-level floating platform with a fully stocked bar, wood-fired pizzeria and DJs playing on the weekend. Cloud 9 is located off the coast near Nadi and offers incredible day parties which run from 10am until sunset. Don’t worry there are day beds available if all the dancing gets a little too much.
