RENDEZVOUS. Sunset with my wife is a rendezvous must. Every vacation, every sunset. Don't miss one. This was the sunset of our 5th anniversary, taken in Nadi, Fiji. It doesn't matter if I've been scuba diving all day, or if she's been off to the...

Nausori Highlands, Fiji
Fiji is beyond any hyperbolic adjective. The mountain villages (and harrowing ascent) are one of countless indelible experiences.

Nadi, Fiji
This dive joint is where locals go for fiery Indian dishes like goat curry (and other curries), chicken vindaloo, chicken biryani, roti and more. The funky scene is more street food than restaurant, so just be prepared for less than pristine...

Nadi, Fiji
Owned by Nadi locals, this cafe earns high marks for its coffee. But dine on the eclectic menu and you may well be enjoying fruits, vegetables, chicken, duck and lamb from the owners' 30-acre farm. Bulaccino serves a hearty Aussie-style breakfast,...

Lot 1 ND5046 Andrews Rd Nadi, Andrews Rd, Nadi, Fiji
The traditional Fijian feast starts with digging a pit. Then leaves and hot rocks are added. More layers of leaves, and then vegetables and meats are layered in, with more leaves and hot rocks. The entire thing is covered over with dirt or sand...

Nadi, Fiji
You can check out the local fresh fruits and vegetables at the Nadi produce market. Vendors spread their wares on the ground in neat displays—a pile of eggplants, some taro, limes, plantains, chilis. There are also kava-root vendors and...

Visit Fiji, and you'll soon believe that every local is born with a beautiful voice and the ability to sing perfect harmony. Look for an opportunity to join a sing-along, most likely around a bowl of kava. Historically, Fijians used song to...

Fiji's first national park, these dunes rise up from the ocean in undulating shapes that make for great photo ops. But more than that, they're home to 22 species of birds, as well as an ancient burial site dating to about 2,600 years ago. Pottery,...

Port Denarau Terminal, Nadi, Fiji
It's a thrill a minute on these high speed, 360-degree spinning jet boats, which skim around the waterways behind Denarau Island. Kids as little as two or three years of age (they just need to be old enough to fit a life-jacket) can participate....

Nadi, Fiji
You may recognize tunes to some of the hymns sung in Fijian churches, but the words and harmonies are beautifully Fijian. Church choirs sing a capella, and even children join in. Church members often wear sarongs, and you should dress accordingly...

I hesitated before booking a resort in Fiji rather than running off to somewhere "local" to absorb the cultural part of Fiji, but I was happy to find that even my resort drew in bits of culture like this fern tree carved statue. These faces of...
