16 days till we go to FIJI!!!

happy new year everyone!!

so its 16 days till we jet set off to fiji for the first time and being a stress head i have a few questions..

were staying on plantaion island in a studio garden bure which is fine and we have full board included in our accomodation..

were a young couple who want to make the most of the island hoping and water sports etc and wondering if anyone can recomend anything they have done from plantaion?

do you book all your activities from the resort once you get there?

and a question about duty free on the way there, were from adelaide and stop over in sydney before hand if we buy alcohol duty free can we take it to plantaion island?

another question we have anyone recommend where to exchange our money and when to do it?

thanks for all your help :)

Some of the activities are listed on this thread


They also have parasailing too.

You can take duty free alcohol to PIR, but pack it in your hand luggage, you can buy mixer soft drinks at Anandas store near the airstrip, or The Trader mini mart at Musket Cove Marina. Also Muskets island bar has cheap drinks.

You can drink your duty free in your room or outside sitting area, but not in the resorts restaurants etc

Money exchange see this thread - Denarau marina is where the Malolo Cat departs to Malolo Lailai island


have a great holiday LTB

Enjoy your countdown. Know how excited you must be.

Be sure to take plenty of sun screen high SP with you. Also recommend taking mosquito repellant, if not supplied by resort. Will be pricey should you have to purchase these items at the resort. Have a look at the following link for other suggestions of what to take with you.


Am sure your holiday will be everything you hope and more.

I'm sure you'll have a great holiday --- I've just phoned a friend who is staying at Navini Island at the moment and they said the weather has been fantastic -- just a few showers overnight.
