The Fiji islands are made up of over 300 islands and over 500 islets covering almost 200,000 sq km of the South Pacific. A large reef encircles the Fiji archipelago, inside the reef are steep drop-offs and shallow lagoons to cater for all divers.
Diving on the main island of Viti Levu offers beautiful soft corals, hard coral walls with channels often visited by large pelagics. The Mamanucas has shallow lagoons with lots of hollows to explore and abundant tropical fish. For the more adventurous, Shark Reef is a popular site where you can see bull sharks and tiger sharks and the underwater caves around Sawa-i-Lau and Yesawa are interesting dive spots.
