February 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 158

Fiji's numerous islands can provide travelers with beautiful scenery and new discoveries. It is the perfect location to experience the enjoyment of a rejuvenating holiday. A few of the islands, such as the main island of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, are quite popular with tourists. There are, however, many other lesser known islands just waiting to be discovered by travelers. Here are five of the best hidden gems of Fiji:

Robinson Crusoe Island

This small paradise is located just off the southwest coast of Viti Levu and can be reached by boat. The island was named after the title character of the Daniel Defoe novel. Travelers can visit the island's peaceful resort and enjoy a luxurious Fiji accommodation at a budget price. Visitors can enjoy a day of snorkeling, boating or exploring the tiny island on foot. The white sand beaches and gorgeous palm trees give this island a celestial quality.

Castaway Island

Travelers can access this small island by boat, helicopter or seaplane. A lush tropical rainforest envelopes the island, allowing travelers the chance to experience a serene encounter with nature. The island also boasts a friendly beach side resort. Travelers can additionally partake in windsurfing and other beach activities while visiting the island. The surrounding coral reefs can be explored by snorkeling or scuba diving.

Monuriki

Adventurous travelers can visit this island to see the filming location of the Tom Hanks movie, "Cast Away." The island remains uninhabited by humans, making it the perfect place for travelers to enjoy privacy and tranquility. The island is home to many unique species of wildlife such as the critically endangered Fiji crested iguana. Many exotic plants, such as screw pines and coconut palms, also help to shape the environment of this island. Despite the island only being approximately 1 km long, the landscape is still rather mountainous.

Navadra

This uninhabited island is a popular spot for avid fishers and yachters to anchor their boats and enjoy maritime activities. In fact, the only way to access the island is by boat. Visitors can see many different forms of colorful aquatic life by scuba diving in the surrounding waters. The various levels of ocean depth around the island provide different shades of blue in the water, giving a unique beauty to the atmosphere. Navadra lies off the western coast of Viti Levu.

Tavarua

This Island is very close to Fiji's main island of Viti Levu. Romantics will be pleased by the island's heart shape. Surfing enthusiasts will rejoice as they catch the waves off the island's beachfront. The island is actually known for hosting annual surfing tournaments. The island also features a large peak towering majestically over the landscape. Tavarua, which is owned by John Roseman, was a private island until 2010. It is now open for all travelers to enjoy.

Exploring the hidden islands of Fiji can provide travelers with a memorable holiday experience. Booking an affordable Fiji travel package is a great way for visitors to come and witness the very best of this splendid island nation. The friendliness of the native people and the spirit of the islands will definitely provide a positive holiday.
