A Month Island Hopping in Fiji | Travel Diaries

Hey all! Long-time, no post. I've just returned home after spending a month overseas in Fiji. For those that don't know, from October I started working as a Social Media Consultant for a group of three sisters resorts in the Yasawa Islands, Fiji - basically a dream job!

It was a fantastic experience getting to spend a decent amount of time on each of the three islands, getting to know the resorts personally as well as the local community.

I've already written a detailed post on Paradise Cove Resort, which was my favourite resort I've ever had the pleasure of staying at (and still is). I'd love to write about the other two as well in the near future as they are all different from each other with their own vibes.

Paradise Cove Resort on Naukacuvu Island is a 5-star resort and a stunning choice for a honeymoon destination or special getaway, it's perfect for couples and families for a luxurious and memorable holiday. They have three pools, an Adult's Only Area, world-class food and an all-tide swimming beach and reef.

Blue Lagoon Beach Resort on Nacula Island is a 3.5-star resort and offers a great choice of accommodation options to suit everyone from backpackers through to honeymooners. They have the most beautiful blue lagoon I've ever seen and a nice reef for snorkelling. There is also the nearby ancient limestone Sawa-i-Lau Caves which are a popular excursion run twice a week.

Octopus Resort on Waya Island is also 3.5 stars with affordable backpacker dorms through to traditional luxurious bures. They are an eco-resort with a great house-reef directly in front. Their beachfront Coconut Bar is the perfect place to watch the sun go down.

Located in the Yasawa Islands, they are easy to get to directly via the Yasawa Flyer Ferry from Port Denarau. All three resorts have incredible staff, most of which come from and live at their local village. They all have excellent inhouse snorkelling and PADI dive shops with qualified instructors to fulfil every dive dream.

They all offer activities that change daily, from cooking classes to village visits, snorkelling trips, basket weaving, mountain hikes, jewellery making, crab races, coconut demonstrations and more. There's enough to keep you busy and doing something different every day.

I took so many pictures while I was away so I'd love to share a few more of my favourite photos and moments taken from my month in the Fiji islands.

I had an incredible but also very busy time! Although it looked like a lot of fun (and it was), it certainly wasn't a holiday. I worked every single day and I'm very grateful for the opportunity and to be able to call this my job.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my time away. Stay tuned for more Fiji blog posts coming soon. Have a safe and happy festive season but I'm sure this won't be my last post of the year. :)

Happy Travels,
