A Week in Fiji

After every long haul flight, these words are music to my ears; on this occasion more so than others given the four infants aboard were intently focused on testing the strength of their newly developed vocal cords throughout the 5.5 hour flight. My partner and I craned our necks eagerly to peep out of the window for the first sign of land, but nothing. Okay maybe the airport is right next to the coastline, we’ll give it 10 more minutes. 15 minutes pass, still nothing but azure blue water reflecting the clouds as far as our eyes can see. Just when we’re starting to get a little apprehensive of our landing conditions, a passenger in front of us gasps in delight. All at once, a beautiful network of coral reefs fringing the small emerald island comes into view, like a precious green jewel set in the silvery-white of foam, embedded in the crystalline blue of the great Pacific. Welcome to Fiji.

Fiji Beachouse: The Best Place to Stay on the Coral Coast

The Wonders of Fiji For most of us, a trip to Fiji is the trip of a lifetime. Stunning sea views, lush diving, hiking adventures, and village visits are just a few of the attractions of Fiji. Besides the wonders of the main island Viti Levu, there are hundreds of surrounding islands, like the Yasawas and the Mamanucas to explore. With this wonder, comes tons and tons of resorts and accommodation options to choose from. It’s hard to pick, especially when you’re researching from a computer. I stayed in a few different places around Fiji and on a few different islands, and I can say without a doubt, The Beachouse was by far my favorite spot. I’ve since recommended it countless times to friends and fellow travelers and everyone of them has left happy!
