Sun-soaked Fiji is blessed with 333 islands, many uninhabited, almost all fringed by white-sand beaches and clear waters that offer superb opportunities for swimming, surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving.
The abundant seas reveal vivid displays of soft corals. Reef sharks, blue ribbon eels, barracuda and spotted sweetlips are just a few of the many hundred marine species that can be sighted - and it was Fiji's incredible underwater life that led explorer, film-maker and Wexas Honorary President Dr Jean-Michel Cousteau to set up an eco-sensitive resort on Vanua Levu.
Most Fijians live on the main island of Viti Levu, which contains the nation's capital, Suva. However, most travellers arrive in Fiji - one of the most accessible of all the Pacific island nations - via the international airport at Nadi on the west coast. From there, the Yasawa, Mamanuca and other outer island groups can be easily accessed by boat or seaplane, and a tremendous choice of luxurious resorts awaits. Each will delight in showing you its own small corner of Pacific paradise, but wherever you decide to go you'll be met by generous Fijians and welcomed with a smile and the friendly greeting, "Bula".
