Planning a week in Fiji and need ideas of where to stay and what to do? This beautiful South Pacific country has tons to offer so there’s loads you’ll be able to fill your time with.

I spent a month in Fiji island hopping and volunteering. And while I know not everyone has the same amount of time, you can have an incredible vacation and see some of the best of Fiji in 7 days.

So, if you’re a first-timer to Fiji and you’re wondering what to do and where to visit – I’ve got you! I’ve put together five 7-day Fiji itinerary ideas to suit different travel styles, interests and budgets.

Getting to Fiji

Most international flights arrive at Nadi International Airport (NAN), which is on the main island of Viti Levu. Airlines like British Airways and American Airlines codeshare with Fiji Airways so there are plenty of great flight options.

Travelling to Fiji will be much easier and quicker if you’re travelling from Australia or New Zealand. If you’re travelling from the UK or Europe, you can expect a journey time of 25-30 hours (if not more!), which will impact how much you can do in a week.

Getting around Fiji 

Once you arrive in Fiji, there are several ways to travel around. On the main island of Viti Levu, you have the option of renting a car as well as getting taxis and private transfers. 

You can also catch a bus if you want a more budget-friendly or authentic option.

If you want to head to some of Fiji’s other islands, you’ll obviously have to cross water to reach them. Again, there are lots of options including high-speed catamaran transfers with Yasawa Flyer and South Sea Cruises

There are also commercial flights to airports on some of the islands. Or, you can book private transfers with seaplanes, helicopters and water taxis. 

Fiji island destinations

As a country with over 300 islands, you have a lot of choice when it comes to planning a trip to Fiji. I totally get that it can be daunting so if you’re not sure where to go or what your options are, here’s a breakdown of the different regions covered in these itineraries.

Viti Levu is Fiji’s main and largest island. It’s home to 70% of the country’s population and it’s where you’ll find the capital of Suva as well as Nadi International Airport. 

Even though it’s called an island, Denarau is part of Viti Levu. It’s on the west coast of the island near Nadi and can be reached by car. This area is an upmarket tourist destination with resorts like Hilton, Sheraton and Radisson.  

Denarau Island is also home to Denarau Marina which is where you can catch a boat to the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands.

The Coral Coast is in the south of the mainland of Viti Levu. It’s around a 1.5-hour drive from Nadi and is a popular holiday spot with beachfront hotels.

Pacific Harbour is further east from the Coral Coast on the main island. You’ll find lovely beaches and secluded resorts as well as adrenaline and adventure activities.

The Mamanuca Islands are off the coast of Viti Levu and are easy to reach from Port Denarau and Nadi. It’s a popular place for island hopping with tropical white-sand islands and amazing beach resorts.

The Yasawa Islands are further north from the Mamanucas. They’re a chain of secluded islands with incredible beaches and rugged landscapes. They’re also a great choice for island hopping in Fiji and are easy to reach from Port Denarau. 

Vanua Levu is Fiji’s second largest island but feels a little off the beaten track. It’s perfect for travellers who want an authentic or more adventurous experience.

Taveuni is Fiji’s third largest island and is known for its jungle, waterfalls and reefs. Most of the island is made up of Bouma National Heritage Park so it’s great for nature.

Fiji one-week itinerary ideas

Ok, let’s get to the itineraries! Whether you’re planning a honeymoon, a family vacation or you want to go exploring, here are the best options for spending a week in Fiji…

7-day Fiji itinerary #1: Mamanuca + Yasawa Islands

Best for: Tropical island hopping 

The first 7-day Fiji itinerary focuses on island hopping in the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands. It’s a dream choice if you want tropical beaches and secluded resorts – while still having a bit of adventure. 

  • Day 1: Nadi / Denarau Island
  • Day 2-3: Mamanuca Islands 
  • Day 4-6: Yasawa Islands 
  • Day 7: Onward Travel

Day 1: Nadi / Denarau Island (1 night)

I’ve seen itineraries that don’t take travel days into account so I wanted to create options that are 7 days inclusive. Therefore, day one of this Fiji itinerary covers your journey as well as some time in Nadi.

How you spend this day will depend on when your flight arrives. If you get into Nadi in the early morning, you could head straight to the Mamanuca Islands today. However, if you’re travelling by ferry you might be limited by the timetable. 

To give yourself less stress, I recommend a night around Nadi or Denarau so you’re ready to travel to the Mamanuca Islands first thing on day two. 

You’ll find lovely resorts on Denarau Island where you can relax by the pool, recover from your flight and look forward to island hopping the next day!

Where to stay near Nadi

✔️ Radisson Blu Resort Fiji ⭐️ 8.7/10
✔️ Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort
⭐️ 8.6/10
✔️ Crowne Plaza Fiji Nadi Bay Resort & Spa ⭐️

Day 2-3: Mamanuca Islands (2 nights)

Day two is when the island adventure begins. This morning, you’ll travel to your chosen resort in the Mamanuca Islands.

Many resorts and islands in the Mamanuca region are serviced by South Sea Cruises, so if you want to travel by ferry, you can check out the timetable here. It’s an easy way to travel and includes pick-up from most Nadi and Denarau resorts.

The journey time will vary depending on which island you’ve chosen to stay at – but all are under 2 hours.

  • Watersports & activities – There are tons of water activities you can enjoy in the Mamanucas. From diving and snorkelling to kayaking and jet ski safaris.

  • Island excursions & sailing – Just because you’re staying at one island resort, doesn’t mean you can’t experience more. Many resorts offer island day trips and sailing – including visits to Monuriki Island which is where Cast Away was filmed.

  • Cultural activities – Depending on where you’re staying, you’ll be able to see “meke” performances, take part in a kava ceremony and visit local villages.

  • Sunset cruises – If you want something romantic to do in Fiji, some resorts offer sunset cruises around the islands.

  • Private dining – Some of the best resorts (like Tropica Island and Lomani Island Resort) offer private dining experiences and sandbank picnics. It’s perfect if you’re on your honeymoon or celebrating a special occasion.

  • Spa treatments – Indulging at the spa is the BEST and most Mamanuca resorts have you covered with brilliant places to relax and unwind.

  • Cloud 9 – If you want a day trip that’s a little livelier, some resorts offer day trips to Cloud 9. It’s a floating bar in the region where you’ll get DJ sets, drinks and pizza.

✔️ Castaway Island Fiji (Private Island)

✔️ Malolo Island Resort (Family-Friendly)
⭐️ 9.4/10

Day 4-6: Yasawa Islands (3 nights)

From the Mamanuca Islands, it’s on to the Yasawas. I absolutely loved this region when I visited. It felt remote and so beautiful with pristine tropical beaches and palm trees.

Unfortunately, the ferries don’t connect between all resorts so your transfer options can be a little more expensive.

If you’re staying at South Sea Island or Vomo, you can catch the Yasawa Flyer to some resorts. Otherwise, you can book private transfers to some of the resorts in the Yasawas – either water taxis, seaplanes or helicopters through companies like Turtle Airways or Island Hoppers

You’ll want to check your transfer options before booking any resorts to make sure you don’t get stuck!

Like the Mamanuca Islands, the Yasawas offer many similar experiences – like incredible scuba diving, watersports, cultural activities and excursions. However, some other things to do in the Yasawa Islands include:

  • Sawa-I-Lau Caves – The Sawa-I-Lau Caves are ancient saltwater caves in the northern part of the Yasawas. They’re amazing to visit and some Yasawa resorts offer day trips.

  • Manta rays – If you travel in season (between May-October), you’ll be able to swim with manta rays in the Yasawa Islands. One of the best places is in the channel between Drawaqa and Naviti islands. 

  • Hiking – With their volcanic landscapes, the Yasawa islands are perfect for hiking. The islands are small, but you’ll find short trails with beautiful views.

Where to stay in the Yasawa Islands

✔️ Barefoot Manta Island Resort (Budget, Eco) ⭐️ 9.0/10
✔️ Coconut Beach Resort (Blue Lagoon) ⭐️ 9.6/10
✔️ Navutu Stars Resort (Boutique) ⭐️ 9.0/10
✔️ Oarsman’s Bay Lodge (Budget-Friendly) ⭐️ 9.5/10
✔️ Paradise Cove Resort (Family-Friendly) ⭐️ 9.4/10

Day 7: Onward travel

On day 7, you’ll check out of your island resort and head back to Port Denarau. The Yasawa ferries arrive in Port Denarau in the early evening, so you’ll need a late onward flight home.

If you’re worried about timings, (or if the ferry doesn’t work for your chosen resort) private transfers can be quicker. You could also travel back to the mainland a day earlier and stay the night closer to the airport.

7-day Fiji itinerary #2: Coral Coast + Pacific Harbour

Best for: Adventure + adrenaline lovers 

The second 7-day Fiji itinerary stays on the main island with a resort-style vacation on the Coral Coast and Pacific Harbour. Personally, I don’t think the beaches here are as incredible as what you’d find on the smaller Fijian islands. BUT, they’re still palm-lined and lovely with great resorts for a relaxing tropical break.

What’s best about this one-week Fiji itinerary is that you cut out any hassle with transfers or ferries to different islands. It can also be a more budget-friendly option and gives you time to focus on a well-deserved getaway! 

  • Day 1-3: Coral Coast 
  • Day 4-6: Pacific Harbour 
  • Day 7: Onward travel

Day 1-3: Coral Coast (3 nights)

On day one of this Fiji itinerary, you’ll arrive into Nadi Airport and travel straight to the Coral Coast. It depends on your flight times, but it’s best if you arrive in the morning or during the day rather than late in the evening.

The Coral Coast is easy to reach from Nadi and takes around 1h30min. Your best options are getting a taxi or transfer to your resort or catching the bus

  • Relax on the beach – The Coral Coast is fab for a relaxed beach vacation. Many resorts are beachfront, but one of the best beaches in the region is Natadola Beach.

  • Watersports & activities – With a name like the Coral Coast, you can expect the water activities to be good. You can go snorkelling and scuba diving as well as sea kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing and jet skiing.

  • Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park – This national park was the first to be established in Fiji and is a great visit for walking trails and seeing more of the country’s landscapes.

  • Sigatoka River Safari  – If you want more of an adventure rush, you can do a jet boat tour on the Sigatoka River which will take you off the beaten track.

  • Kula WILD Adventure Park – Perfect if you’re travelling with kids, Kula WILD is a fun day trip where you’ll find forest walks and wildlife exhibits. There’s also a canopy zip line, jungle waterslide and a children’s splash pool.

  • Biausevu Waterfall – If you want nature and a short jungle hike, a visit to Biausevu Waterfall is lovely. You’ll find organised tours offer other inclusions in the area, too.

  • Horse riding – The Coral Coast is one of the best places for horseback riding in Fiji. You can join tours through companies like Maui Bay Horse Riding Adventure

  • Unwind at a spa – There are lots of spa resorts on the Coral Coast so they’re a great choice if you want to indulge in treatments. You could also head to Sigatoka Spa which is open to everyone.

Where to stay on the Coral Coast 

✔️ Maui Palms (Boutique) ⭐️ 9.1/10
✔️ Bedarra Beach Inn (Budget-Friendly) ⭐️ 9.0/10
✔️ InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa (Luxury) ⭐️ 8.9/10
✔️ Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort (Family-Friendly) ⭐️ 8.4/10

Day 4-6: Pacific Harbour (3 nights)

From the Coral Coast, the next part of your Fiji 7-day itinerary takes you to Pacific Harbour. This region is about an hour further east along the coast so you can get there by private transfer, taxi or express bus.

Pacific Harbour is known as the adventure capital of Fiji so it’s great if you want something more active or adrenaline-based. But, equally, you’ll find incredible reefs and secluded beaches if you want a slower pace.

  • Snorkelling & scuba diving – Beqa Lagoon in the Pacific Harbour region is one of Fiji’s best dive spots. 

  • Cageless shark diving – The Shark Reef Marine Reserve in the nearby Beqa Passage is a protected marine sanctuary for eight species of sharks. You can book shark dives through companies like Beqa Adventure Divers and Aqua Trek.

  • Adrenaline & adventure activities – As Fiji’s adventure capital there are tons of activities you can do like jetski safaris, river tubing and white water rafting. You can also go zip lining at Kila Eco Adventure Park

  • Off-road excursions – Pacific Harbour is a great starting point for day trips that explore Fiji’s beautiful landscapes. There are waterfall and scenic dune buggy tours as well as options for boat rides on the Navua River and local village visits.

  • Day trips to Suva – Suva is the capital of Fiji and is less than an hour away so you’ll be able to explore the city if you want to.

Where to stay in Pacific Harbour 

✔️ Nanuku Resort, Fiji (Luxury) ⭐️ 9.6/10
✔️ ULTIQA Fiji Palms Beach Resort (Family-Friendly) ⭐️ 8.8/10
✔️ Royal Davui Resort (Island Resort, Adults-Only)* ⭐️ 9.6/10

*requires a speedboat transfer

Day 7: Onward travel

On day seven of your trip, you’ll check out of your hotel and head back to Nadi for your flight home.

7-day Fiji itinerary #3: Denarau + Mamanuca Islands

Best for: Families + those wanting a chilled-out break

Itinerary number 3 is all about Denarau Island and the Mamanucas. This is an option that feels relaxed and easy to organise but still offers a good dose of island life!

  • Day 1-3: Denarau Island
  • Day 4-6: Mamanuca Islands
  • Day 7: Onward travel

Day 1-3: Denarau Island (3 nights) 

This one week in Fiji itinerary starts on Denarau Island, which is close to Nadi Airport. The easiest way to get there is by getting a taxi or transfer from the airport – the drive takes 20-30 minutes.

Denarau Island is known for its upscale resorts so it’s great for a relaxed vacation. You’ll find beachfront hotels with all the amenities you need for families as well as couples.

  • Relax at your resort – The resorts in Denarau are known for being upmarket and are perfect for a relaxing break. Whether that’s lounging by the pool or on the beach, joining watersports or indulging at the spa – you’re covered here.

  • Denarau Port – The Port on Denarau Island has a collection of boutiques, bars and restaurants so it’s a great place to spend a leisurely afternoon

  • Visit Cloud 9 or Seventh HeavenThese floating bars/platforms in the Mamanuca region make a great day trip from Denarau.

  • Sunset cruises & sailing – If you want time on the water, there are sailing and sunset cruises that leave from Port Denarau. 

  • Island day trips – Even though you’ll be heading to the Mamanucas next, an island day trip is a nice way to experience even more of Fiji. There are several islands you can visit for the day from Port Denarau including Tivua Island, Castaway Island and Malamala Beach Club.

  • Big Bula Waterpark – Who doesn’t love a waterpark? Big Bula Waterpark is in the heart of Denarau Island.

  • Seaplane & helicopter tours – A helicopter or seaplane tour is a bucket list experience in Fiji. Operators like Turtle Airways and Heli-Tours Fiji fly out from near Denarau and offer scenic flights over the islands.

  • Nadi & Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple – There’s not a ton to do in Nadi itself, but you’ll find some shops along the main street where you can buy souvenirs. There’s also a produce market selling fresh fruit and veggies. You can also visit Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, which is the largest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere

  • Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool If you’re heading to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, you can combine your trip with a visit to Fiji’s hot springs and mud pools which are nearby. 

  • Adrenaline activities – From Denarau, you can join inland adventure activities including quad bike tours, zip lining and river tubing.

Where to stay on Denarau Island 

✔️ Radisson Blu Resort Fiji ⭐️ 8.7/10
✔️ Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa ⭐️ 8.6/ 10
✔️ Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort ⭐️ 8.6 / 10

Day 4-6: Mamanuca Islands (3 nights)

On day four, you’ll head to your chosen resort in the Mamanuca Islands. Because the boats leave from Denarau Marina, it should be an easy travel day. 

Depending on where you’ve chosen to stay, you can catch a high-speed ferry to your resort with South Sea Cruises or Malolo Cat or you can get a private transfer. 

The Mamanuca Islands are all pretty small, so once you arrive, it’s all about island life and soaking up the beauty of the tropical white-sand setting!

I’ve outlined in detail in itinerary #1 what you can do in the Mamanuca Islands so those also apply here. Obviously, water activities like snorkelling and scuba diving are incredible in the Mamanuca Islands. Plus, you’ll be able to join island excursions and sailing trips as well as cultural activities. You definitely won’t be bored!

Day 7: Onward travel

On the last day of this Fiji 7-day itinerary, you’ll leave your island paradise and head back to the mainland. Again, you can get a ferry or private transfer back but make sure you give enough time to catch your onward flight!

7-day Fiji itinerary #4: Vanua Levu + Taveuni 

Best for: Nature + culture lovers 

Another Fiji island hopping itinerary option is to combine Taveuni and Vanua Levu. Even though these are two of Fiji’s bigger islands, they’re not hugely visited so it’s fab if you want a more authentic or back-to-nature break.

  • Day 1-3: Vanua Levu
  • Day 4-6: Taveuni 
  • Day 7: Onward travel

Day 1-3: Vanua Levu (3 nights)

After arriving at Nadi International Airport, you’ll travel straight to Vanua Levu on day one. This is dependent on your flight times but hopefully you’ll find a good connection (there are regular flights). 

Commercial flights go from Nadi to Savusavu (SVU) or Labasa (LBS) on Vanua Levu and take around an hour. If that doesn’t work with your timings, you’ll need to organise a private charter or spend a night in Nadi before flying the following day.

  • Snorkelling & diving – Snorkelling and diving is amazing around Vanua Levu – it’s home to some of Fiji’s best dive spots. You’ll be able to join dive tours to Namena Marine Park and Rainbow Reef as well as go snorkelling at Split Rock.

  • Island & boat tours – Some of the best resorts offer snorkelling and island tours that make the most of the paradise scenery. You can also find boat trips around Natewa Bay where there are spinner dolphins.

  • Waterfalls & nature – As a largely untouched island, you’ll find lots to explore if you’re a nature lover. Waisali Rainforest Reserve is a nice place to visit. You’ll also find waterfalls like Nakawaga and Vuadomo which are good with a guide.

  • Fijian village visit – Many resorts offer village visits and cultural activities.

Where to stay in Vanua Levu 

✔️ Namale Resort & Spa (Luxury, All Inclusive) ⭐️ 10/10
✔️ Savasi Island Resort (Boutique) ⭐️ 8.7/10
✔️ Naveria Heights Lodge (Boutique) ⭐️ 8.8/10

Day 4-6: Taveuni (3 nights)

After 3 nights in Vanua Levu, it’s on to your next stop: Taveuni. This island is known as Fiji’s ‘Garden Island’ and is a lush, tropical paradise. It’s perfect for a peaceful retreat!

To get there, you’ll travel on day four via ferry across the Somosomo Strait to Taveuni, and then transfer on to your chosen resort.

Taveuni offers similar experiences to those that you’ll find in Vanua Levu. Water activities like scuba diving and snorkelling are great and you can join cultural activities and village visits here, too.

  • Bouma National Heritage Park – This national park covers a lot of Taveuni and is a highlight of this island. If you’re a nature lover, you’ll be in heaven! If you’re into hiking, the Lavena Coastal Walk is the best and takes in beaches, rainforest and waterfalls. The park is also home to Tavoro (Bouma) Falls, which are Fiji’s most famous waterfalls. It gives Bali vibes!

  • Horseback riding – Taveuni is great for horse riding along the beach and through beautiful scenery. You can arrange tours with local guides at many resorts.

Day 7: Onward travel

On day seven, you’ll check out of your resort and head back to Nadi airport. To get there, you can catch a flight from Matei Airport (TVU) in Taveuni. Flights take around 1h30min – make sure you give yourself enough time to catch your next flight home.

7-day Fiji itinerary #5: Private Island Resort

Best for: Honeymooners + those wanting a relaxing break

The final Fiji 7-day itinerary isn’t so much of an itinerary, but an option if all you want to do is relax in paradise. There are so many incredible private island resorts in Fiji so if all you want is a hassle-free vacation, this is for you!

This 7-day luxury itinerary option is all about ease. You’ll head straight from Nadi Airport to your chosen resort and spend a week blissed out, making the most of your accommodation’s facilities, activities and excursions.

With so many dream luxury resorts, it’s the perfect way to spend a special vacation or 7-day honeymoon.

Other Fiji itinerary options

If you have longer for your vacation, you can adjust any of these itineraries and add more time in each location. This will allow you to soak it all in and make the most of your trip.

Island hopping is also a fab option if you have 12 days or more in Fiji. This is a good amount of time to explore the islands at a relaxed pace. You can check out my Yasawa island hopping itinerary for ideas.

If you’re heading to Fiji for a short and sweet trip, I recommend sticking to one resort in either Denarau or the Mamanuca Islands. This way, you won’t spend too much time travelling to your accommodation.

The Mamanuca Islands are quick to reach from Denarau. They’re a great idea if you arrive in Fiji in the morning and can head to your resort right away. You might be lucky with the ferry timetables getting you there quickly. If not, you might want to consider a private transfer so you can maximise your stay.

Best time to visit Fiji

The best time to visit Fiji is between May and October. This is the country’s peak, dry season and is a better time for exploring, island hopping and snorkelling / diving. This is also when it can be a little less humid with temperatures around 25 to 28°C.

One week in Fiji FAQs

Is 7 days enough for Fiji?

Depending on where you’re flying into Fiji from, 7 days can be long enough. You won’t get to experience everything, but it’s a good number of days for many travellers. If you choose to stay in just one resort, it’s also the perfect amount of time for relaxing, unwinding and switching off.

How many days do I need for Fiji?

If you’re travelling from New Zealand or Eastern Australia, a 7-day Fiji vacation will be perfect. However, if you’re travelling from further afield, I recommend a longer trip. 

If you’re trying to squeeze a trip into a week of annual leave, you’re limited when you take into account the travel time to get there (it can be 30+ hours from Europe). If you’re travelling so far and spending a lot on your flights, it also makes sense to extend your trip if you can to make the most of it all.

Is Fiji cheap or expensive?

Fiji is known for being an expensive destination to visit. A lot of the best resorts are on the spendy side and it can add up if you’re travelling between islands or destinations. That said, there are ways to bring the costs down – like staying in budget bures or sticking to one region or resort.

What is the nicest island to stay on in Fiji?

With over 300 islands, it’s impossible to say which is the nicest island in Fiji! Personally, I loved the Yasawas – Drawaqa was one of my favourite islands. Taveuni is also gorgeous if you love nature.

Is it best to go all-inclusive

It depends on your travel style, but an all-inclusive getaway is helpful if you want to easily track your spending. You’ll find that many resorts in Fiji offer meal plans and packages anyway. All-inclusive can be expensive though and it doesn’t always cover alcohol.

How much does a one-week trip to Fiji cost?

Your one week in Fiji budget will vary massively depending on what you’ve chosen to do and where you’re staying. Many of the best hotels are £350+ per night (with some luxury resorts and private islands considerably more). 

Activities as well as transfers can also be on the pricier side. If you want to stay in mid-luxury accommodation and do paid activities and day trips, you’ll want to budget at least £3,000 (+ flights) for a couple.

What are the best resorts in Fiji?

There are so many dream resorts in Fiji – some of my favourites are Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Kokomo Private Island, VOMO Island Resort and Barefoot Manta Island Resort. You can see my list of the best Mamanuca Island resorts here.

Where can I spend my honeymoon in Fiji?

If you’re planning a honeymoon in Fiji you have tons of incredible options. It depends on your travel style and how long you have, but if you want luxury then a private island retreat for a week would be amazing. Resorts in Fiji are romantic and perfect for a honeymoon – they make a great alternative to the Maldives or Bora Bora!

What to do in Fiji for a week – Final thoughts

If you have one week in Fiji, you’ll have an amazing time. There’s so much to love about this country and it’s the perfect place for doing as much or as little as you’d like.

Whether you want to go island hopping and exploring or you want to relax at an island resort, all are possible in seven days. I hope these 7-day Fiji itineraries have given you ideas and inspiration for booking that dream trip!


Save for later!
