When you land in Fiji, you are guaranteed to be greeted first with the greeting "Bula!" (pronounced boo-lah!). You will surely feel that you have come to a special place. The Fijian people are very warm and friendly and they love to express their love of life and genuine hospitality with infectious, enthusiastic and ubiquitous "Bulas!"

Fiji has a motley and rather violent history but today is a real paradise for adventure, diving, sun and swimming and meeting amazing people. Fiji consists of just over 300 islands and became an English colony in the 1870s but was given self-government as late as 1970. The country used to be called the "Cannibal islands". Here you can find everything from backpacking to super luxury and depending on which part or which island you are on, the experience will be totally different but also very rewarding.

Diving in Fiji

The diving in Fiji, or world soft coral capital as it is sometimes called, is colorful and varied. From magically colored coral reefs that seethe with colors from various soft corals to wall diving and coral gardens that slowly slope out to great depths. Here is one of the world's best places to dive with bull sharks (feeding) at "the arena". It is also one of Fiji's most famous dive sites.

In Fiji there are several endemic fish species and the waters are generally rich in fish. Here you can also see various reef sharks and in some places also hammerhead sharks that slowly glide in the blue or look for reefs. Sometimes you also come across the big beautiful tiger shark too. A rare meeting that will tingle a little extra in the stomach. Some of the world's largest tiger sharks have been seen here in the southern parts of the Pacific Ocean. There is also the opportunity to disturb various whales, dolphins and manta rays and at least five different species of turtles. A diving trip to Fiji should definitely be combined with days on land to meet the fantastic people and experience the beautiful nature.
