My mum (in her 50s) and I (in my 30s) are thinking of going to Fiji in Sept/Oct this year.
We have been to Fiji before several years ago and absolutely loved it. We spent two weeks at Naviti Resort and thought it was fantastic.
We don't usually visit the same country twice, but Fiji is very close to Oz and therefore probably more convenient for our holiday this year.
We would really like to try an island this time. We would like to visit which ever one has the most picture-perfect beach (white sand, turquoise water). I've heard both The Manamucas and Yasawas are gorgeous. Is one more picturesque than the other?
We don't really want to spend a ridiculous amount if we can help it. We are both very active so we don't want an island that's extremely small. We also don't want an island that's just for honeymooners. We don't mind kids at all. We would be happy just to do some hiking, swimming, kayaking and perhaps snorkelling. Other than that, we just plan to relax on the beach or by the pool.
We would really appreciate an island recommendation. I think Castaway looks lovely, but I don't really know how it differs from any of the others.
I'm not sure if 2 weeks is too long to spend on one island? Perhaps it might be better to visit the Coral Coast for one week and then an island for another? Or maybe two islands? (although that might get too expensive).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :o)
