If you’d rather spend your Friday sitting by the pool sipping cocktails than sitting in rush hour traffic then like us, you’ve probably dreamed about escaping to Fiji for the weekend. No need to get leave approved from the boss, you could just disappear for a few days of well-deserved relaxation and no one would even notice. With flights to Fiji taking as little as just three and a half hours from the east coast of Australia, that’s less than a weekend away in Margaret River wine country. If you play your cards right and line it up for a long weekend, flitting off to Fiji has never been easier. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing antidote to your busy life or want to try and cram in as much fun and adventure as possible, you really can enjoy an escape to Fiji for the weekend.


When you’re sick of Netflix on the couch and crumbs down your shirt, this is the perfect way to spend a weekend relaxing. You can land in Fiji on Friday and from the airport it’s just a quick trip to your resort where slipping into island time is easy in Nadi or Denarau, cocktail in hand. Or you can schlep on a shuttle to the Coral Coast or Suncoast for warm sunshiney goodness and all day beach lounging. Once you’ve arrived you won’t need any plans beyond lazing by the pool. The hardest decision you’ll have to make is which cocktail to try next and with pampering spa treatments and a multitude of delicious dining options to choose from, you’ll be chillaxed to the max.


Perhaps for you the weekend is your chance to get out there and enjoy life. Stuck sitting at a desk all day, the weekend is a chance for you to get moving. Even if you’re only visiting for a few days, there’s so much to see and do in Fiji. From a game of golf in Denarau to a day cruise to the Mamanucas, there’s something to appeal to all interests. There’s game fishing, snorkelling safaris, thrilling jet boat adventures and for the extreme adrenaline junkies, you can even go shark diving in Beqa Lagoon. If you’ve brought the kids along with you there’s heaps for them to enjoy too. Most resorts offer some super fun age appropriate kids clubs where they can make friends and enjoy water sports, beach combing and entertaining cultural activities meaning they’ll not only come home with sun tans and great stories to tell.
