Welcome to Fiji, where natural beauty and local culture converge to create one of the worldís most idyllic locations to celebrate romance. With 333 sun-kissed islands and 4,000 miles of coral reef fringing white-sand beaches, this South Pacific nation offers infinite picture-perfect settings in which to mark the meaningful milestones of a relationship ó from a life-changing marriage proposal to the wedding and honeymoon, and honoring the anniversaries beyond with a renewal of vows in magical Fiji.
Your Romance Starts Here
While Fiji offers its pick of seaside resorts and pristine beaches on the main island of Viti Levu, smaller, secret escapes beckon for an extended rendezvous. Within the less-visited northern archipelago is Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest swath of land and the mainstay for Fijian sugar cane cultivation. Life is especially sweet in Savusavu, the tiny town on Vanua Levu’s southern coast where yachts bob in the bay and black pearls, raised and plucked from these South Pacific waters, are fashioned into jewelry — a perfect beloved keepsake.
Less than five miles off Vanua Levu’s southeast coast lies the garden island of Taveuni, a treasure of abundant emerald rainforest. The trails leading to Lake Tagimaucia, hidden in a volcanic crater at the island’s center, offer surprising romantic gestures along the way, like scarlet and white tagimaucia flowers leaning forward as if offering themselves as a bouquet while orange fruit doves serenade above.
Fiji’s magnetism lies not just in its abundant natural beauty and secluded retreats, but also in the warmth of its local culture that permeates each moment. A bride may infuse Fijian traditions into her ceremony, reclining in a throne as she floats aboard a bilibili, a traditional bamboo raft, accompanied by a group of warriors clad in grass skirts. Her gown billowing in the breeze, she’s lifted on land as the calls of a warrior sound from a davui (conch shell). Once she arrives at her groom’s side, the couple — adorned in salusalus (fragrant flowered necklaces) — is enveloped by the melodies of a choir and framed by the azure sea and soft sands.
The spirit of Fiji also emerges in its welcoming retreats, perhaps in an overwater thatched bure bungalow, where breezy surrounds are accented by woven bamboo wall coverings and yaka timber floors. It’s revealed in the fresh flavors of Pacific Rim fare, like mangrove crab and mahimahi sourced from the Koro Sea and presented in a bounty of romantic settings — from a private beach bungalow to a candlelit cave.
