Just some idea on what you like to do. Are beaches a must? Near restaurants and are you travelling alone. A litle more info will help. Would you be intersted in a village stay.

The quickest and easiest way to get to Taveuni is to fly from Nadi to Tavueni on Pacifc Sun. The flight is approximately 1 1/2 hours. Most tours are booked through the resort you are staying at. If you know what you want to see, it might be possible to book a tour with a cab driver when you land in Taveuni. As for price, that would have to be negotioated with the driver. Just don't know, if that would allow you enough time to catch a flight back to the mainland without spending the night. You can also take a ferry, but will have go to Suva. It will take longer and am not sure about the accommodations or how long it takes.

You can base your stay at resorts on Denarua, Nadi, or the Coral Coast. The resorts can schedule tours to the islands and other sights. You also have the option of renting a car or taking a cab to sightsee on your own.

Personally, would not go to Fiji without booking a resort. Leaving the 23rd does not give you much time to do your research before deciding on a resort to make sure you get the best price, has what you want in a resort, and has availabilty. Fiji is not like vacationing in the states where you drive till you are tired and decide to stop at hotel for the night. Maybe some have done this, but we are not that adventuresome. Some resorts are very popular and are booked months in advance. There can also be a distance of an hour or two between resorts on the mainland.

As others have said, would help to know your budget and what you want in a resort.
