In the out islands of Fiji, you can experience a calming sense of detachment from the world. Lovely beaches, clear blue lagoons and jungle-clad volcanic peaks aside, it is the native Fijians you will remember most, their easygoing manner and spontaneous good humor unmatched by any culture in the world. The main island of Viti Levu is where the international airport, 75 percent of the population, most of the tourists and all of the group-oriented hotels are located.

These sanctuaries allow you to experience authentic Fijian culture while relaxing at superlative resorts.
