Fiji Dive Resorts

Famously known as the "Soft Coral Capital Of The World", Fiji has to be on every diver's bucket list of dive destinations. World-class dive sites like "Mellow Yellow" and "The Great White Wall" have the best soft coral gardens, and the Pacific Harbor and Beqa areas have some of the best shark diving in the world.

Fiji has a number of dive resorts, ranging from budget to high-end. In our opinion, Fiji has some of the best dive resorts in the world, with respect to both amenities, value for the money, and the diving.


Fiji Dive Resort Areas

VITI Levu

The best dive sites of Viti Levu, Fiji's main island, can be found on the north or south coast of the island, where several dive resorts are located. Viti Levu has something for both beginner and advanced divers, with its healthy reefs, wall dives, sharks, turtles, big pelagics and schooling fish, not to mention amazing macro life. The highlights of Viti Levu are Rakiraki, Pacific Harbor, and Beqa Lagoon.

  • Rakiraki is on the central north coast of Viti Levu, where you'll be able to dive Bligh Water, one of the best regions to dive in this part of the world, just a boat ride from your dive resort. The Bligh Water is home to sharks, turtles, and beautiful soft corals. Make sure you visit the dive site Mellow Yellow, where you'll find incredible yellow soft corals.
  • The Shark Marine Reserve at Pacific Harbor is considered by many to be the best shark dive site around the globe. You'll see at least eight species of shark, including white-tip, black-tip, grey reef sharks, bull sharks, lemon sharks, and even tiger sharks. There are also 400 species of fish, grouper, rays and wrasses in this area.
  • Beqa Lagoon is surrounded by over 300 km of coral reefs. This area is suitable for divers of all levels, who'll find it teeming with tropical fish, pinnacles, coral bommies, and even a small shipwreck or two. Resorts near the Beqa Lagoon area also offer the best access to the famous Fiji shark dives.

Taveuni

Taveuni offers amazing diving on the Rainbow Reef, a dive site in Fiji known all over the world. The Rainbow Reef can be found at the Somosomo Strait and has great soft corals and plenty of reef sharks such as whitetips, gray reef sharks and nurse sharks. There can be currents at the Rainbow Reef, so it may not be the ideal choice for beginners. But these currents show the soft corals at their best.

Kadavu island

This island can be found south of the main island and is less frequented than other islands on Fiji. The resorts on the island offer an "Eco" experience.  Importantly for divers, Kadavu is the site of the third largest barrier reef in the world, the Great Astrolabe Reef, which is also the biggest living organism in the South Pacific waters. There are numerous dive sites here, where you'll see tropical fish swimming among the corals, Manta Ray feeding stations, and reef sharks as well.

vanua LEVU

Come to Vanua Levu to see the Namena Marine Reserve, which is in Savusavu, in the southern part of the island. This marine protected area has a number of fantastic dive sites, where you'll see big fish swimming by reef walls, as well as amazingly colorful and robust soft corals.

KORO ISLAND

Koro Island is situated uniquely since currents from the Koro Sea feed the reefs and cause incredible visibility. At Koro, you'll feast your eyes on an incredible number of fishes of all sizes, as well as sharks, particularly at Shark's Fin Point. On occasion, even whale sharks have been spotted in this area!
