Trip itinerary

Day 1: Let The Adventure Begin!
Fly into Nadi International Airport (NAN) at any time, and grab some rest before kickstarting your island adventure! You’ll be collected from the airport and transferred to accommodation in Nadi where the rest of the day will be yours to relax and unwind after your journey. 

Day 2: Nadi to Robinson Crusoe Island
After a relaxing start to your Fiji Beaches experience on one of Viti Levu’s best beaches, Natadola, you’ll be collected and transported to the island of the fire dancers – Robinson Crusoe Island. Upon arrival at your accommodation, kick back and soak up some sun after your first island ‘hop’, with stunning cobalt waters to ease the way!

During your time on Robinson Crusoe Island you will have independent time to explore as you wish. You will not have a guide accompanying you, however resort staff will be on hand to give you any advice and recommendations that you may need.

Day 3: Robinson Crusoe Island to Uprising Beach Resort
Return to Viti Levu in the morning soaking up the stunning views of Fiji’s Coral Coast along the way. Meet your guide for the next few days, and embark on a low-intensity trek that will take you deep into the rainforest for a dip in a stunning natural waterfall, returning in time for an afternoon of sun, sea and sand, by the pool or by the beach!

Day 4: Suva Whistle-stop
Learn more about Fiji and its people with a cultural cruise through Fiji’s capital city – Suva. Visit the Fiji Museum, tour around the famous Snake Cave and its amazing network of underground tunnels; a chance to learn about the British colonial history of Fiji through architecture and historical sites; a visit to a local school; and the chance to try your hand at bilibili rafting, weather permitting! A bilibili is a raft made of bamboo lashed together, the raft is steered using a long pole that is pushed down into the river to move you through the water. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a local lunch provided by the village at a cost of approximately FJD10.

Also on offer is the opportunity to partake in a traditional Kava ceremony – a true staple of Fijian culture, involving the sharing of liquid Kava root around a gathering, and followed by celebratory dancing.

Your bed for the night will be at the Golden Point Resort in Rakirari. Be sure to grab some rest after the busiest day of your itinerary so far!

Please note: the bilibili rafting opportunity is dependent on weather conditions at the time of your arrival. Any river floods will result in cancellation of the rafting experience.

Day 5:  Back to Nadi!
After a night at Golden Point, prepare for the road back to Nadi, via a stop at the sugar capital of Fiji – Lautoka – for a mouth-watering taste of Indo-Fijian cuisine (additional cost). Unwind after your day’s travels with a visit to the Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool – traditional relaxation at its very finest!

Day 6: Hop to Beachcomber Island!
Today you’ll bid farewell to your guide as you head off to explore some of Fiji’s stunningly beautiful islands.

Beachcomber Island awaits! Arrive from the sea, stepping off the boat onto stunning white sand, and start your afternoon the Fijian way – ready to relax and enjoy! Grab lunch and then hit the beach, cocktail in-hand, for another beautiful day in Paradise!

Day 7: Bliss on Beachcomber Island
On the seventh day of your island adventure, your time is entirely your own. Spend another day lounging on stunning white sands, or dipping in and out of the water with some optional activities. Scuba diving is available at an extra cost, and provides an amazing opportunity to get up close with some of Fiji’s sea life. Whatever your decision, make sure you don’t miss out on one moment of bliss!

Day 8: Hop over to Mantaray Island!
Your next two nights will be spent on magical Mantaray Island – one of Fiji’s more Northern territories. You’ll go by boat, skimming over the clear waves towards your next destination. Be sure to get a good night’s rest – there’s plenty to come in the morning!

Day 9: Mantaray Island
Your time on Mantaray Island is yours to spend as you please. Dive straight into optional activities on the stunning beaches of Mantaray Island! Opportunities for swimming, diving and snorkelling are available, at an extra cost. Alternatively, kick back and relax on the beach – there’s no shortage of sun, whatever you’d rather be doing!

As the name would suggest, Mantaray Island provides an opportunity to swim with the manta ray themselves! Visitors can expect to see ray of all shapes and sizes during the May-October season, and a variety of swimming trips are available for those who wish to get up close and personal! The local resort staff will be able to assist in arranging activities.

Day 10: The Journey Back! 
Wave goodbye to Mantaray Island today as you head back to the mainland of Viti Levu by boat and by road. You should expect to arrive sometime in the early evening, at which point the tour comes to an end. Please note: The group may not arrive back to the mainland in time for you to catch a flight on this day. Therefore you will need to book an extra night of accommodation which will be at your own cost. The local team in Fiji will be able to assist in arranging this for you.  

Important note: You will be accompanied by a local guide during your time on the mainland, the rest of the trip is a self-guided independent style trip where you will have free time to explore Fiji's incredible islands as you please. Local resort staff will both drop you off and meet you from your transfers between each island and will be on hand to assist with arranging any optional activities yuo may like to get involved in. This itinerary is subject to change without prior notice due to weather conditions and seasons.

Please note: In the event that accommodation at Beachcomber Island is fully booked you will instead stay at neighbouring Bounty Island which is a fantastic alternative. Please contact us for further information on this.

Can I Have My Own Room / Share With A Friend?

The included accommodation on this trip is mixed-sex dorms; however, there is an option to upgrade to a single / shared room at an extra cost. Please contact us for further details.

Can I Travel Alone?

Yes! The close-knit nature of the tour means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to socialise and bond with your group mates (usually around 14-15 others). We welcome both solo travellers and groups, so don’t be afraid to sign up!
