Coral Coast
The Coral Coast, on the southern part of island of Viti Levu, offers miles of white beaches and crystal blue water perfect for swimming, relaxing and snorkeling.

The Yasawas are an archipelago of 20 islands that were closed to tourists until the 1980s. Turtle Island is one of the most popular resorts in the Fiji Islands.
