The idyllic South Pacific archipelago of Fiji offers a breath taking fusion of cultures, cuisines and tropical surroundings that create a diverse yacht vacation itinerary. Whether you are looking for the tranquillity of a deserted white sand beach surrounded by mountains or the thrill of scuba diving in the crystal clear waters, there is something for everyone amongst Fiji’s 300 islands. 80% of the island nation’s population live on just two of the main islands - Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, meaning that there are endless wonders just waiting to be discovered.
Fiji Luxury Yacht Charter Guide
With cultural influences coming from a blend of Indian, Polynesian, Chinese and a little European flair, the local cuisine on offer forms a big part of the Fiji yacht charter experience. The freshest local ingredients are used with colourful exotic fruits and beef, pork and seafood to create a culinary experience like no other.
Fiji also boasts some of the most bio-diverse waters in the world and is home to a number of world-famous snorkelling and scuba diving sites, particularly in and around the virtually unexplored northern islands. The warm, clear waters can offer visibility of up to 50 metres, ideal for watching the manta-rays, reef sharks, turtles and dolphins in their natural habitats. Stepping ashore is equally as spectacular in Fiji, with varied landscapes formed from ancient volcanic eruptions as well as remote villages hidden amongst jungle terrains.
Luxury Yacht Charter Itineraries in Fiji
The largely unspoilt islands of Fiji are best explored by luxury charter yachts, travelling from one remote island beach to another. Its tropical climate varies very little throughout the year but its rainy season runs from November through to April. Yacht vacations will often embark from the Port of Denarau Marina, a popular starting point for sailing to the Mamanuca Islands and Yasawa Islands which each have a lively atmosphere and a string of sandy beaches and coral reefs along the coast.
Cruise further north and you will find the unspoilt cruising grounds that surround the Yasawa Islands, that include Vanua Levu and Taveuni. This beautiful chain of 20 volcanic islands stretches for more than 80km and has remained largely untouched by tourism. With dramatic cliffs that plunge into the turquoise waters and deep lagoons surrounded by forests, they encompass some of the most impressive scenery in the South Pacific.
