While the government is there because of a military coup, its pretty good. Tourism is their biggest industry, so they look after you. You wouldn't even know unless you were aware before you went.
As for places to go, the Islands are the best. They have the same facilities as the main islands, but have better access to water activities and reefs as you don't need to go as far. We stayed out on the Malolo Islands, which have both moderate and deluxe resorts. If you want golf, Plantation Island has a 9 hole golf course, and 3 resorts to choose from. Big island with lots of party life if you want, plus good access to island hopping and reefs etc. over 10 years ago
Fiji is a great place to go as a couple as there is a lot to do and the scenery is beautiful!! There are alot of high class resorts and spas if you are looking for a more luxurious experience.
Fiji is a world class surf destination and known for its big waves and reef breaks, so you are sure to find some great waves! There are also some nice safe beach breaks for beginners :) over 10 years ago
Definitely head to the islands unless you're looking for an easy family holiday with other families - and i bet you're not.
Recommend the Yasawa island group. The Tom Hanks movie 'Castaway' was shot there and pretty much every island in the group has that same white coral sand, green vegetation, shallow blue seas thing happening as in the movie.
We stayed at the rightly famous Turtle Island for our honeymoon and while it's worth the eye-bleedingly-expensive price, you can also find anything from 1-star $65/night accomodation and up there.
Since most of the islands are small and close together, once you're in the Yasawas you're only a short boat ride between different islands and can stay at a couple of places. But if you only have a short holiday, stay on one island because 'Fiji Time' can turn what should be a 15min island transfer into 1.5hrs so don't overdo the inter-island travel.
For the ultimate in flexibility go for a 'Bula Pass' that will let you wander thru the Mamanucas and Yasawas, staying where/when you like for 7-21 days. See http://www.awesomefiji.com/passes-bula.aspx
The snorkelling and diving in the Yasawas is excellent - shallow, coral sand bottoms, big walls, and the coral is still in good condition.
The Mamanucas are better known for their surf breaks though you can still get some good surfing in the Yasawas, there just aren't surfing-specific resorts there. over 10 years ago
