Between visiting Australia and heading to New Zealand, we spent a quick weekend in Fiji. It was paradise and it went by way too fast, but we managed to squeeze in a good bit of action. Here’s the itinerary:
- Stay at the Westin Denarau. There are several pools and restaurants right on the beach. You can walk down the shore a little ways to rent kayaks.
- Grab an authentic Fijian meal at Nandina. Make sure to ask for kava. It’s an odd drink made from kava roots that is supposed to relieve anxiety.
- Take a day cruise to different islands. We went with Adrenaline Tours. It was a great service with all you could eat and drink as you cruised around–we even snorkeled at the island where Castaway was filmed. There were also jet-skis and paddle boards to keep us entertained.
- And give Fiji Bitter Beer and Vonu a try. Both are brewed with Fiji water. Then decide that you never want to drink Fiji Water again because the poor beaches are littered with thousands of those bottles.
