Thinking of going to Fiji at Christmas and have a few questions: 1) Should I be concerned about the weather? 2) We like the less built up, quiet areas that have good beach snorkeling that are also not too hard to get to. Any suggestions?

    I have booked to go to Fiji again in January. How do you mean concerned by the weather? What worries you.

    If you like less built up areas you might like the Coral Coast where there is really only the resort and small towns around. Other than the resort there is not much to do. The beaches are better around the Coral Coast. There are some that are a bit more suitable for divers.

    We stay at Port Denaru about 10 minutes from Nadi airport. The beach isn't very nice here but it is central and we can then do various activities from here. We like to play golf and there is a fabulous course across the road from the hotels which are Sofitel, Radisson, Westin, Sheraton etc. The Port which is a short 5 minute car or bus ride where you can catch full day tours to other islands where you can use their facilities all day. Hubby hires a boat or goes on an arranged tour to do deep sea fishing.

    For me I have not found an island that I would love to stay on unless I pay mega bucks like $1000 a night. I don't like the idea of being stuck with the same restaurant every night. You might like it because of the beaches which are a lot better than Port Denaru.

    It's sometimes hard to suggest exactly what you might like as we are all different.
