Fiji is one of those countries renowned for being the most idyllic honeymoon destination. Made up of 333 islands, if you’re after a dreamy vacation filled with endless days of sunshine and great weather you’ve hit the nail on the head with this one.
One thing you should know about travelling to Fiji is because of its makeup (and many of the islands being privately owned), a big portion of your budget is usually required for accommodation. To help alleviate this woe, we’ve found the best affordable options – so you have some extra dollars to spend on spoiling yourselves with a fine dining experience, picnic in the middle of the ocean or island hopping tour via seaplane charter. YUP!
P.s. If you’ve never heard the term ‘bure’ before, it’s often used in Fiji and refers to a bungalow-style accommodation.
