We love to explore !!!!!

We are traveling to Fiji for the first time! We have two grown sons (22 and 20) and are planning a dive trip, this island chain was recommended by other dive friends we have. Is this where we want to stay? We also want to kayak and hike, zip lining was also high on the priority list. I have 10 months to put all this together, thoughts???

Hi Stacie - the Manamucas are a chain of islands and the closest to mainland Fiji. Have a look at this map which explains all the regions: http://www.fiji-island.com/

More popular dive destinations include the Southern Islands, Northern Islands and the north coast of Viti Levu.

A good option for you may be to spend some time in the Pacific Harbour area (for ziplining, rafting and other adventure activities) followed by a trip out to somewhere like Matava or Waisalama resorts for direct access to dives on the Astrolabe Reef.

Great diving at Pacific Harbour and close to Zipline and other activities.

Mamanucas has great diving too so maybe spend sometime on an island in the Mamanucas and sometime on the Coral Coast or Pacific Harbour area so you can do the Zipline, dive and other activities. Excellent Shark Dive in Beqa Lagoon off Pacific Harbour, need to book early as it is very popular.
