Fiji's White Sand Beaches
With its 333 islands and atolls, Fiji is bound to have the South Pacific island paradise of your dreams. To help you find the right one, we’ve gathered information on the islands renowned for their stunning palm-lined fine white sand beaches – but there’s still so many to choose from!
So, let’s start at the upmarket Denarau Island, just 6km west of Nadi. As the gateway to the Mamanuca and the pristine Yasawa islands, it has a range of fine dining and accommodation options as well as a world-class marina from which, if you’re feeling in the need of pure luxury, you can chart a yacht from here to one of the island groups.
The Yasawa Islands
is a 90km chain of volcanic islands that not only feature white sand beaches but turquoise lagoons and rugged landscapes, and are the home to the famous Blue Lagoon cave and beach. Stay in one of the deluxe villas at the wonderful Nanuya Island Resort
on the northern tip of Nanuya Lai Lai island and you are overlooking Blue Lagoon bay.
The Mamanuca (pronounced 'mamanu-tha') Islands
boast a great selection of accommodation such as the Beachcomber Island Resort
, as well as numerous uninhabited islands and atolls, such as Monuriki (where the movie 'Castaway' was filmed) or Honeymoon Island, ideal for a secluded picnic.
Ranging from low coral cays to those of volcanic origin, several islands raise turtles to maturity from eggs laid on their islands. They are released when old enough to fend for themselves, but can be viewed within their enclosures while being raised.
