Single travel to Fiji - where to stay

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers - I'm researching a trip to Fiji and don't know if I'd be traveling alone or with a friend. Am a single woman who loves beautiful beaches, fun people, music and a cold beverage. I'd love to find that great hammock or beach chair under that great palm tree. While I can do basic, I actually do appreciate a few finer things in life such as good linens, a nice tub / outdoor shower, a massage and a fine glass of wine. Have been researching all of the islands and am now thoroughly confused. I'd love any tips. Here's where I am right now:

1- Mamanucas or Yasawas - these islands seem to offer that great out of the way, beautiful beach kind of experience. And if one wants a bit of a party - I could head to beachcomber island for some festivities. These islands appear to be primarily targeted at tourism with desolate beaches and resorts for relaxation. don't know if you get the feel of 'fiji culture' here... dancing, music would be welcome.

2 - Taveuni - still some good beaches, a little bit farther to access, but then the added advantages of a rainforest / waterfalls / natural waterslide. Might have more of a true 'fiji' experience here??

3- Vatulele or Beqa - both seem to have a few great all-inclusive resorts here too that are highly rated. Royal Davui appears to have great bure w/ a stellar plunge pool.

Unfortunately, I am not a certified diver - although this certainly sounds like the place for it - especially by Taveuni. But snorkeling is very much up my alley. A few miscellaneous things that should great but location wise may be a bit separate from the above locations is to go whitewater rafting on the upper Navau. Has anyone experienced this? Looks like the rapids may be a bit tamer (class 2+), but the gorge looks amazing.

Additional questions:
- how are Sept and Oct?
- how bad are the mosquitos? is there a better time of year to miss these? I seem to attract these dudes like I'm dinner.
- where is the best for a combo of relaxation as well as a little social activity?
- any tips for single travel?
- should I book direct or are there advantages to using a travel agent? I haven't used one in years, but don't know if this is a destination that may be better served by an agent's guidance.

Also - would prefer to stay ~$3000k all-inclusive for a week. May not be able to do this as I will be evaluating quality of experience as well. But, I trust you guys will guide me well here.

Really appreciate any guidance here. All the best - Hollie
