Best romantic things to do in Fiji for couples

1 Relax on Fiji’s beautiful beaches

The first romantic thing to do in Fiji is pretty obvious but, as a South Pacific jewel, this country’s beaches are the definition of heaven.

There’s no better activity than lounging in a hammock beside gentle swaying palms and glittering ocean – and it’s way more memorable when you’re with your favourite person!

As a destination that’s all about relaxation, connecting with your love in the most divine setting will definitely be bliss.

Fiji has some of the world’s very best beaches and most hotels are set on powdery sands. So, if all you want to do is bask in the sun and spend quality time together, you won’t be disappointed. 

2 Take a sunset cruise

With over 300 picture-perfect islands, you’ll be blown away by Fiji’s beauty from the water.

These idyllic islands really are breathtaking and a sunset or dinner cruise is the perfect way to take it all in after a dream day in paradise.

As a popular experience for couples in Fiji, you can book sunset cruises through a guide or tour company. You’ll also find resorts, like Kokomo or Lomani, that offer sunset cruises.

Choose a private cruise if you want the most romantic option – it will be magical as you watch the golden hues set over the water.

3 Experience a Kava ceremony together

Another must during your trip to Fiji is to immerse yourselves in the cultural traditions.

A Kava ceremony is a customary ritual that holds deep significance in Fijian culture and it’s something you won’t want to miss.

If you’re visiting a Fijian village, a Kava ceremony will usually be part of the itinerary. Lots of hotels include traditional ceremonies in their activity offering so it’s an easy one to tick off your list.

As an experience, it will give you a glimpse into the soul of Fiji and it will be a special moment to be part of together.

4 Go island hopping

Fiji is one of the world’s best places for island hopping so it’s a must if you want to mix romance with adventure.

The Yasawa and Mamanuca islands are the easiest places to island hop and they’re paradise gems that won’t disappoint.

Each island brings something a little different and the journeys between them will be breathtaking.

If you only want to stay in one hotel, you’ll find day trips that can take you to other islands. Or, you can check out my 12-day Fiji island hopping itinerary if you want to stay overnight on several islands and have more time to explore.

5 Indulge in a couples spa treatment

If top of your list is to relax, unwind and treat yourself, you’ll definitely want to indulge in some couples spa treatments during your stay.

Fiji is renowned for its beautiful beachside spas so it really is the best setting for relaxation.

Most resorts offer spa services, so it’s something you’ll be able to enjoy regardless of where you’re staying. But, if you want a dedicated spa break, Fiji is also a winner. 

Some of the most heavenly spa hotels include the ultra-luxurious Six Senses Fiji and COMO Laucala Island. They’re well worth considering if you want to splurge on an extra special stay for your trip.

6 Go horseback riding on the beach

Maybe it’s a cliche, but horse riding on the beach needs to be on your Fiji bucket list!

With no experience like it, this is an activity that will give you another perspective to the romance of Fiji’s pristine beaches.

There are a few places where you’ll be able to do this, including on the mainland on the Coral Coast and in the Yasawas at Turtle Island.

You can also horse ride across Taveuni and Viti Levu, which you can combine with seeing some jaw-dropping natural scenery.

7 Chase Fijis waterfalls

It might not be the first place you think of when it comes to waterfalls, but Fiji has so many natural beauties.

Away from the coast, you’ll find lush greenery, rainforest scenery and tumbling waterfalls that will take your breath away – they’re beautiful spots that are really romantic.

The best island for waterfalls is Taveuni. The most famous here is Bouma Falls, but you’ll find gorgeous waterfalls on Vanua Levu and the main island of Viti Levu, too.

I really loved Colo-i-Suva Forest Park, which is a peaceful oasis with waterfalls, walking trails and natural swimming pools.

8 Visit the Sawa-I-Lau Caves

The Sawa-I-Lau Caves are a really magical spot in Fiji.

Found in the northern Yasawas, the caves make a great day trip if you’re staying in the Blue Lagoon region – many hotels offer day trips so it’s easy to plan.

These limestone caves are one of the world’s most beautiful settings and deliver a surreal and otherworldly atmosphere.

They’re significant in Fijian culture, too – they’re known as the resting place of the ancient Fijian god, Ulutini. 

During your visit, you’ll be able to venture into gorgeous caverns and a secret cave through an underwater tunnel. If you’re an adventurous couple, it’s a unique experience that you’ll love exploring together.

9 Visit a traditional Fijian village

Visiting a traditional Fijian village is a meaningful experience to enjoy together.

Lots of resorts in the Yasawas offer organised village tours where you’ll likely see a traditional ‘meke’ performance and gain insight into the local way of life. It’s a lovely way to spend a few hours.

Fijians are known for their warm hospitality, so you’ll be welcomed with open arms.

You’ll learn about customs and traditions and can also experience Sunday church services, which will give you a deeper understanding of this beautiful country and its values.

10 Explore a remote island

If you want to escape the crowds for your own slice of heaven, there really is no better place than Fiji.

None of the small islands in Fiji are built up, but there are completely uninhabited islands, too. 

The most famous is Monuriki – this untouched island was the film location for Tom Hanks’s Cast Away and it’s well worth a visit.

There are no resorts on the island and it’s a real natural paradise. The island is in the Mamanuca region and you can visit on a day trip – we went with Seaspray Adventure, but resorts on nearby islands offer visits, too.

11 Take a scenic helicopter tour

If ever there’s a picturesque place to see from above, it has to be Fiji. So, if you want a truly awe-inspiring and romantic thing to do in Fiji, you’ll definitely want a scenic flight!

Soaring above turquoise waters, you’ll be able to see coral reefs, verdant rainforests and the most dramatic of coastlines.

The bird’s-eye view promises a totally unique perspective of the country’s natural beauty.

12 Snorkel among vibrant coral

Fiji’s waters are magical and exploring vibrant reefs together is one of the best activities to enjoy as a couple.

I was honestly blown away by the snorkelling in Fiji and it was one of the most special experiences.

You’ll be able to rent snorkelling gear from your hotel and a lot of places in Fiji have incredible reefs right by the beach.

It’s worth taking an organised trip to some of the more remote reefs, too. We found the best locations around the Blue Lagoon, but there are so many great spots that you won’t be disappointed wherever you go.  

13 Sail on a private yacht

A romantic getaway to Fiji wouldn’t be complete without a sailing trip.

There are so many options when it comes to boat trips but, for the ultimate romantic experience, consider a private yacht or catamaran charter. 

During a day trip, you’ll be able to enjoy the privacy of your private deck, sipping champagne and exploring secluded paradise beaches.

Your itinerary will usually be tailor-made so you’ll be able to tick off the dreamiest spots on your vision board. 

You could also do a private overnight sailing trip if there’s more you’re wanting to explore.

It might not be the cheapest, but it’s an intimate and luxurious experience that’ll give you memories for a lifetime.

14 Learn to dive together

If learning to dive is something you’ve always wanted to do, Fiji is one of the best places to try it.

As a destination that’s abundant in coral, Fiji is a dream for divers – its diverse underwater ecosystems and world-class dive sites are truly breathtaking. 

You’ll find lots of places where you can try out scuba diving. If you’ve never done it before, you can go for an introductory dive.

You’ll also have options for PADI certifications which will definitely be a memorable way to spend a dream trip together.  

15 Dine on a floating bar 

With the most tranquil waters, Fiji is home to several floating bars. Seventh Heaven has been dubbed one of the world’s most beautiful and is a really great spot for a date day. 

Found in the Mamanuca region, this remote floating platform is surrounded by sparkling azure waters.

You can expect food and plenty of cocktails – but you’ll also find loungers, snorkel gear and even massage rooms to enjoy on your visit.

The bar has chill days and party days so you can take your pick to suit your style. Whichever you choose, you get a 6-hour stay with your ticket and it includes transfers from Port Denarau on Fiji’s main island.

16 Enjoy a candlelit dinner on the beach

For a lot of couples, a candlelit dinner on the beach is a holiday must.

Fiji’s islands are some of the best places to do this – the pristine beaches offer a tranquil and secluded setting for a really special evening. 

From sunset to starlight, your dinner will be one of the most romantic things you do in Fiji.

Many luxury romantic resorts in Fiji – such as Likuliku Lagoon Resort and Tokoriki Island Resort – offer exclusive private dining experiences. Often you’ll dine on the beach or on a private deck or jetty overlooking the water.

17 Stargaze the clearest night skies

Stargazing is always magical and it’s one of the best and most romantic things for couples to do in Fiji.

The country’s remote location and limited light pollution make it a prime destination for stargazing.

There are so many incredible spots to enjoy stargazing in Fiji. The northern Yasawa islands and Taveuni in particular have exceptional skies on a clear night.

If you’re staying in a beach bure, you won’t need to go far either – you’ll have amazing views right from your door.

18 Explore tropical gardens

There’s more to Fiji than beaches, and its tropical gardens are lovely for a romantic stroll.

On Viti Levu, near Nadi, the Garden of the Sleeping Giant is a gorgeous spot to enjoy nature – you’ll find dense rainforest as well as landscaped lawns filled with orchids.

There’s definitely no shortage of peaceful spots in Fiji, but these gardens are tranquil and beautiful.

You can see the Garden of the Sleeping Giant as well as Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple & the Sabeto Mud Baths on this tour

19 Swim with manta rays

No matter the reason for your vacation to Fiji, swimming with manta rays is an absolute must. Manta rays are graceful, peaceful and it’s a really serene and beautiful experience to be a part of.

Manta ray season runs from May to October and the best place to find them is in the passage between Drawaqa and Naviti islands in the Yasawa Islands.

There are resorts in the local area (Barefoot Manta Resort and Mantaray Island Resort) that are ideal if you want to experience this. 

Barefoot Manta Resort is the only resort in Fiji with a dedicated Marine Conservation Centre so it’s a lovely choice if you want to learn more about conservation, too.

20 Go dolphin watching

There’s something so romantic about dolphin watching. Dolphins can be found in the Mamanucas and around Taveuni but one of the best places to see them is in Takalana Bay in eastern Viti Levu. 

Takalana Bay Eco Lodge offers excursions to see spinner dolphins at the nearby Moon Reef.

As a protected marine area, this reef is a lovely spot for wildlife watching and the pod of dolphins live there year-round.

21 Hire a private island

What could be more romantic than hiring your own private island? If you’re visiting the Yasawas, you’ll want to check out Oarsman’s Bay Lodge’s private island.

Yaromo Island is known as Honeymoon Island and if you’re staying at the hotel you can book exclusive use of the island for a day. 

It’s not just for the super rich and it has to be the ultimate romantic thing to do in Fiji. It would be the perfect place for a honeymoon celebration or a proposal in Fiji!

22 Stay in a romantic beachfront bure

You can’t go to Fiji and not stay in a beachfront bure. These rustic, traditional villas are one of the best things about Fiji.

Offering direct access to the world’s dreamiest beaches, you can wake up to the sounds of the waves and the most breathtaking ocean views.
