PET FRIENDLY TRAVEL TO FIJI
Fiji For Pets:
Beautiful Fiji is an island paradise where you and your pet can relax on a lovely beach in the warm sunshine or pound the pavements together as you check out the markets, bazaars and shops in the city areas. Either way both you and your pet will feel totally at ease at you relax, lay back and simply enjoy the magic that is undoubtedly Fiji! The people are pleasant with warm welcoming smiles and a friendly Bulla greeting every where you go as well as a pat for your pooch!
Pet friendly days out and attractions in Fiji:
There are lots of exciting pet friendly places to see and heaps of fun things to do in Fiji, from exploring the very popular and scenic Garden of the Sleeping Giant with her magnificent orchids and gorgeous botanical gardens to leisurely wonder through to the Nausori Highlands with spectacular views across valleys, waterfalls and remote Fijian villages. There are numerous National Parks in Fiji which have great rain forest tracks, wild life and mangrove forests for you to explore. There is also the Sigatoka River Valley filled with rich farmland, Indian settlements and more Fijian villages for you and your companion to discover.
Renowned for fabulous snorkeling and waters teeming with colorful fish, a day trip to the reef at Beqa Lagoon, located just off Pacific Harbor on the south of Viti Levu (Fiji’s main island) is an absolute must do. Perhaps a shark feed dive if you are qualified, although I am 100% certain that this is one of those times that you shouldnt listen to Fido and let him come along; perhaps a friendly pet sitter would be better on this occasion!
Head for the beach and try sliding down Sigatoka Sandunes which has 6km of windswept sand dunes perfect for slipping down on boogie boards!
There are some thirty-three white soft sand beaches awaiting your foot prints, of which many will also welcome a few doggies paw prints as well! Throw a Frisbee, ball or stick together in to the brilliant turquoise seas! Ҡ
Head for Fijis capitol Suva and be sure to take your trusty doggie for a walking tour as this delightful city is set around a picturesque harbour with lots of shopping, museums and markets galore. DonҒt forget to check out the Cultural Centre with a theatrical display of Fijian customs including traditional fire walking.
