Fiji's weather is tropical and our resort is casual so pack light. Shorts, tee-shirts, bathing suits; typical resort wear; although in Fiji's winter months (June thru September) the tradewinds bring cooler temperatures so a windbreaker or light summer sweater and a pair of long pants would be suitable in the evening. Average temperature is 80-85 degrees F. November-May which is spring/summer in the land downunder; June-September, our winter months, average is 72-78 degrees F. The traditional wrap-around called a sulu in Fiji is worn by both women and men (you will find a gift of a sulu upon check-in) and we keep a stock if you'd like to add to your wardrobe. Local custom frowns upon topless or nude sunbathing.
Bring along an old pair of tennis or walking shoes for the bush hikes or for exploring the tidal pools along portions of the rocky shoreline and a pair of sandals or rubber thongs for the trails to the beaches and bures.
Sunscreen and a hat; medicines should be packed in your carry-on along with a change of clothing (shorts & tee-shirt) ... very seldom does baggage go missing for long but we are remote and it could take a couple of days to get to the island. We have a limited supply of toiletries, film, batteries, etc. so do keep that in mind.
Electricity: Although we do not have electricity in the bures, we do have charging facilities at the office/laundry area. Fiji uses the same 3 prong plug as does Australia and New Zealand and current is 240v ; we have an inverter which will accommodate 110V chargers. As we do not run the generator continually, we ask you to arrive with fully charged batteries so we can keep them topped off.
Bring along some basic medications - Aquaear, a tube of triple antibiotic ointment, anti-fungal ear drops, Sudafed, Bonine.
Snorkelers: We suggest a long-leg, long sleeve lycra bodysuit to protect from sunburn. They are lightweight and won't take up much space.
For travel to Fiji, a passport valid for at least 3 months beyond your holidays in Fiji and a ticket for onward travel. There is a departure tax which is collected at the Nadi International Airport of Fijian dollars $30 per person paid in cash notes.
