Fiji Dive Resort Accommodation

One of the top attractions of Fiji Islands is scuba diving. Divers from around the world visit Fiji each year experience the beautiful soft coral reefs, vast numbers of pelagic and marine animals and the adrenalin rush of the shark feeding dives. However, they also find fabulous Fijian hospitality, accommodation, snorkelling and non-diving activities such as hiking, biking, ziplining, surfing and more!

In Fiji, the currents can range from almost none to quite strong. The currents are one of the best attributes of Fiji diving as they not only improve visibility, but also bring in a constant stream of rich nutrients to the reefs, which is the reason why Fiji is often called the 'soft coral capital of the world'. The nutrients also mean a healthy and thriving range of marine life. Whether you are a novice or experienced diver, each region has dive sites to suit your level of experience. And if you are interested to learn to dive, Fiji is the perfect spot, with wonderful environment, warm waters, friendly trainers and tropical holiday ambience.

There are a number of top dive spots in Fiji. These include the Rainbow Reef located between Taveuni and Vanua Levu in the lush tropical northern region. On Taveuni, the Garden Island Resort have a good mix of accommodation and diving. Other resorts range from luxury to budget. Try Taveuni Island Resort or Paradise Taveuni, while Karin's Garden has a private cottage accommodation if you prefer a quiet hideaway. Dolphin Bay Divers on Vanua Levu is very close to the reef. Or stay in Savusavu. Jean Michel Cousteau's Fiji Island Resort has an on-site marine biologist and has a great kids programme too.

The Koro Sea region has some spectacular diving - try Namena Island Resort, or check out the liveaboard options. Kadavu Island in the South is an away-from-it-all destination where guests can enjoy eco-resorts, the 'real Fiji' experience and great diving on the Astrolabe Reef.

There are some excellent dive holidays to be had in the Mamanuca Islands also. Castaway Island Resort has its own dive operation. Other dive accommodation includes Matamanoa Resort, Mana Island Resort, Malolo Resort and so on. Almost all the resorts offer diving activities.  

If you prefer not to fly out to the various island dive spots, then consider Wananavu Island Resort in the north, which has access to the Bligh Reef. Or head south to Pacific Harbour, where a couple of dive operators run daily dive trips to Beqa Lagoon, including the famous Shark Feeding dives!
