Fiji is home to plenty of great scuba diving destinations for beginners and advanced divers. For beginners, there are plenty of opportunities to dive along Fiji’s famous soft coral reefs with hundreds of fish alongside you. For advanced divers, there are shipwrecks, swim-throughs, caves, and the chance to dive with bigger marine life such as manta rays and sometimes whale sharks or hammerheads, if you are more daring. Fiji travelers who don’t have their scuba license can easily get it at the island with affordable beginner courses.

5. Drink Kava with the locals

Kava ceremony in Fiji

Travelers cannot say they have been to Fiji unless they have tried the local delicacy of the Kava drink. When you meet any Fijian they will encourage you to try Kava. It is best to participate in Kava ceremony or casually drink the Kava with the locals with high tide or low tide (full cup or half). The drink is for only adults due to its alcohol like effects. Some vacationers will love Kava and some may want to keep to the low tide, but nevertheless it is a must-try in Fiji.
