When dreaming of your paradisiacal escape to Fiji, it's the soft white beaches that are front of mind. Literally hundreds of beaches are dotted around this pacific archipelago, many on uninhabited, remote islands that exceed our tropical nirvana dreams.
As such, there's a beach for everyone in Fiji. Whether you're seeking sand time, tan time or swell that rivals anything else in the pacific, there's a place for you. Here we've compiled some of our favourite Fijian beaches, coves and sandy beds for all.
Swimming Pools, just offshore from Namotu Island, is one of Fiji's most consistent, easy rides and is a go-to for surfers with all manner of experience. The best swells come in from the south and southwest, boasting really clean, bright blue breaks.
Matagi Island has some of the best snorkelling in Fiji and we couldn't recommend it enough. Base yourself from Matangi Island Resort and snorkel from the beach. Incredible, kaleidoscopic marine life await in the warm, gin-clear waters while soft, hard and plate coral, giant clams and blue starfish offer exceptional opportunities for underwater exploration.
Natadola Beach, oft making it to lists of the worlds top beaches, is a stunning and highly accessible stretch of sand on the coral coast. Certainly the nicest beach in the area, visitors can ride horses along the shore, swim and forage in the shallows and body surf on the gently crashing waves.
Staying on Malolo Island Resort, guests enjoy exceptional pristine beaches and vivid reefs. The crystal clear water and great off-shore snorkelling makes it a really excellent option for the Fiji holiday the postcards promised.
Remote and remarkable, the Yasawa Island group takes you well away from the crowds and into a holiday all of your own. The beaches here are totally unspoiled in every sense of the word. Bures line the shore, up against unreal waters, gently swaying palms and a jungle that blankets the islands.
