Fiji Travel Tips for First-Time Visitors

Fiji is hailed as an exotic destination for honeymooning couples, families and large groups. If you’re a first-time visitor, here are some Fiji travel tips you’ll need to know in order to make the most out of your vacation.


Although the Fijian Dollar is the country’s official currency, American dollars are widely accepted here as well. You can also use most major credit cards to pay for expenses.


Although Fiji has a tropical climate all year long, there is a wet and dry season. December through April is considered the “wet season”, and normally comes with a great deal of rain. If you’re not bothered by that, the tourist population is also a little lighter then.

One way to ensure you have a great time while visiting Fiji is to stay at Mitangi Private Island Resort. Located on Horseshoe Bay, it has been listed as one of the “Top Five Most Romantic Resorts in Fiji”, and as one of the “1,000 Places to See Before you Die.” To book your stay, contact us.
