I am planning our honeymoon next year but after reading blogs and a lot of topics on TA forum we are still confused on what to do and where to stay!!
We have a total of 2 weeks excluding travelling time to spend on our honeymoon and were hoping to stay within a budget of Euro 5000 to Euro 6000 inc. flights.
We are based in Malta, Europe. We are not adventurous but 2 weeks simply staying on the beach at the Yasawa Islands I think will become too boring. Apart from few days at the beach, we like to throw in a hike (of an easy type), visiting a typical fiji school, see some waterfall and experience a kava ceremony - does any island in the Yasawas have all these features plus a beautiful beach ? We would also like to possibly visit Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple in Nadi.
To give you an idea - our best holiday was in Cinque Terre, Genova - we did some trekking, we ate well, we visited villages and we went to the beaches.
As regards to accomodation, something that offers a la carte as opposed to buffet would be preferred but is not a must. Also would like to see available options for accomodations catering for adults only but I realise the price may be more expensive so again not a must. Own bathroom is a must though.
I have read that for a beach vacation it is best to visit Fiji between April and early October and we are quite flexible on dates for next year.
I know I may be asking for a lot!! :) Please help us figure this out.
Another alternative we were contemplating was a short cruise of New Zealand and 5 days in the Yasawas with most of these then spent on the beach - is this option feasible??
Looking forward to some expert advice. Thank you so much in advance.
