From November 24th to December 1st Beachcomber Island will be home to the mind blowing Spring Break festival. This is one for the beat hungry hedonists to cut loose and cut up the dancefloor. Those who head to Fiji for a quiet time are advised to stay well away ; )
For a more family-friendly festival, check out Corona Uprising Festival of Music, Dance and Lights in Pacific Harbour on November 8th. There is more of a rootsy feel to this one, with light shows to coincide with Diwali, authentic Fijian music and dance, plus jazz, blues, funk, folk and reggae for a full day of laid back grooves.
Coral Coast Sevens
Fans of rugby just got another reason to visit paradise between November 13th – 15th, with the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens Tournament at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka. Known as the tournament to find the ‘Champion of Champions’ for the Pacific Rim, it welcomes 24 male teams and 12 female teams competing for a $75,000 prize pool. So there’s plenty to play for, and plenty of rugby for you fans to enjoy!
Lau Island Cruise
In November, Reef Endeavour will embark on a Discovery voyage of the remote, unspoilt Lau Islands. And, if you want to take the road less travelled and experience somewhere seldom seen by tourists, this is the trip for you. The 11-night cruise will take you to incredible deserted beaches, sacred islands, hidden lagoons, and the homes of rare native turtles, snakes and birds.
For surfers looking for the cleanest surf possible – and the least crowded – Fiji from December through February is the place to be. The waves at this time of year are waist to head height, and so perfect for beginner or intermediate riders to enjoy; head to the north coast if you’re looking for the bigger swells at this time of year. Of course, being summer, the water is warmer too!
