Where to Honeymoon in Fiji

With its friendly ‘bula’ charm, sugar-white beaches, warm tropical breezes and intimate beach resorts specialising in honeymoon packages, the islands of Fiji are a long-time favourite with honeymoon couples.

Fiji offers a choice of more than 300 sun-kissed tropical islands scattered across several island groups, with an exceptional range of beach resorts and outdoor activities for adventurous honeymoon couples.
