Nature & Scenic Areas

Many areas of natural significance have been protected and are open for visiting nature lovers to enjoy - from mountain ranges to river gorges, mangrove forests and coral reefs. Intact forests stretch from mountainous peaks down to the coastline of some islands. Take a hike deep into these thick natural rainforests treating your lungs to some of the freshest air you will ever likely breathe. Discover waterfalls pouring into cool crisp pools you can swim in as you marvel at the beauty of the surrounding native plants and wildlife. Fiji’s forests are home to a wide array of unique birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, insects and other invertebrates.
Alternatively, you can take a gentle stroll through well-kept botanical gardens to learn more about the various medicinal and practical uses of much of Fiji’s flora. You can also get up close and personal with some endangered species. Migrating humpback whales jump and splash through Fiji waters from June through to October, five of the world’s seven sea turtles play in Fiji’s waters and large resident pods of spinner dolphins call Fiji home. You can marvel at their impressive aerial displays during a visit to Moon Reef. Rare endemic species such as the Fiji crested iguana and the colourful Kadavu parrot can be seen at educational centres and the national wildlife park. If you would like to learn more about the underwater world, that’s easy too! Fiji has established well over 200 locally managed marine parks, which means that you can enjoy guided snorkels or scuba dives through beautifully healthy and well managed areas of coral reef during your holiday. Naturally, the islands of Fiji’s are impressive.
