Dubbed, the ‘Soft Coral Capital’, Fiji’s colorful carpets of coral are a photographer’s and divers dream. Great dives sites are particularly plentiful in the Somosomo Strait, Bligh Waters, Koro Sea and the Astrolobe Reef. Most resorts contract dive shops to offer visitors both PADI or SSI certification up to specialist level. For the dive fanatic, multi-day dive adventures on liveaboard charters like ‘Nai’a’ and the ‘Fiji Siren’ enable them to reach some stunning remote dive sites.
Many traditional structures no longer exist but cherished traditions are woven into modern village life. Navala village in the Ba highlands is the only village where most houses are still built in the traditional style ie with thatch, reed walls and sinnet lashings.
Another cultural experience not to be missed is the traditional kava ceremony. Kava is an earthy concoction made from the pounded root of a Pepper plant species and was originally drunk during ceremonial occasions. Kava root is usually brought as a sevusevu or gift when asking a chiefs permission to visit his village or lands.
