To celebrate the Rugby 7s epic golden Olympic win and spread some positive news for the Fijians, we thought we'd share seven golden experiences not to miss in Fiji once the borders open.

To celebrate the Rugby 7s epic golden Olympic win and spread some positive news for the Fijians, we thought we’d share seven golden experiences not to miss in Fiji once the borders open.

We’re all a little bit happy after seeing Fiji’s Rugby 7s team win gold, bringing much-needed celebrations for the country, and the second Olympic gold in a row.

So, to celebrate with Fiji, let’s take a look at 7 amazing experiences you can plan for your next trip to the Islands.

Because, let’s face it, our bags are already packed while we wait for the green light to go!

1. Sunrise Trek with Talanoa Treks

Beyond the stunning beaches, Fiji has an incredible interior and lush mountains ideal for trekking.

Organise a private guided sunrise trek with Talanoa Treks and take in the incredible views.

2. Sandboard the golden sand dunes of Sigatoka

Situated at the Sigatoka river mouth are the golden sand dunes that the Rugby 7s use to train to get them fit for competition.

If traversing the dunes with soft sand runs is too strenuous for you, get the adrenalin pumping sitting on a sandboard as you fly down the dune.

3. Sunset dinner cruise with Captain Cook Cruises

Cruising around the Mamanuca Islands, you’ll be treated to a traditional Fijian cultural entertainment, with sundowners at sunset as you take in the stunning views before enjoying a buffet dinner and drinks as you cruise back to Denarau port.

4. Hilltop yoga at sunrise

Hilltop yoga at Vomo Island Resort

VOMO Island Fiji offers the perfect place to re-centre and align with nature.

After a 30-minute hike to the top of Mr Vomo, atop the hill is the yoga deck, taking in 360 degreee views across the Mamanuca islands. Take part in the rise and shine sunrise yoga class.

5. Enjoy sundowners at Wailoaloa Beach

Fiji

Only 3km from Nadi, Wailoaloa beach comes alive at sunset, head to the rooftop bar at Ramada Suites for views across the ocean as the sun goes down.

After dark, enjoy the beachfront bars of Bamboo, Smugglers Cove and Sailors for cheap eats and a bottle of Fiji Gold and take in the atmosphere – you might catch a local live band!

6. Get a golden tan at Malamala Beach Club

Spend the day topping up your tan, paddleboarding and snorkelling, or just relaxing with incredible food and drink at the adults-only beach club, Malamala in the Mamanuca islands.

Hire one of the island’s cabanas with waiter service for a private experience.

7. Romantic heli-tour over heart island

A 25-minute heli-tour over the island shaped like a heart, where many golden mid-air proposals have taken place.

Tavarua, the small island that looks like a heart from the air, is surrounded by natural reef and world class surf and guests have stunning views across the Mamanuca islands.

Oh, Fiji. We love you.
