Geographic Location

Fiji, is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean around 2000 km northeast of New Zealand's North Island.  Despite that it is located in the middle of the Pacific ocean, Fiji is easily accessible through convenient, direct flights from Los Angeles or Honolulu aboard Fiji Airways. It is actually not far away from many surrounding Pacific islands which tourists may also visit. It is surrounded by other great tropical Pacific islands like Vanuatu, New Caledonia, New Zealand's Kermadec Islands,Tonga the Samoas, France's Wallis and Futuna and Tuvalu.

Fiji is an archipelago of more than 332 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of about 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Onu-i-Lau. The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of almost 860,000. The capital and largest city of Fiji islands is Suva, is on island of Viti Levu.

The majority of Fiji's islands were formed through volcanic activity starting around 150 million years ago. Today, some geothermal activity still occurs on the islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni. Fiji has been inhabited since the second millennium BC, and was settled first by Austronesians and later by Melanesians, with some Polynesian influences. Europeans has a long history of visiting Fiji since the 17th century.

As you can imagine three-quarters of Fijians population live on Viti Levu's coasts, either in Suva or in smaller urban centres like Nadi or Lautoka. Nadi is more for tourism while Lautoka is for the local sugar making industry.

Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific due to an abundance of forest, mineral, and fish resources. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange are its tourist industry and sugar exports. The country's currency is the Fijian dollar. One Fijian dollar is roughly 0.46 US dollar as of Oct 2015.

Temperature in the cool season still averages 22 °C (72 °F). Rainfall is expected in all tropical islands and so is the same for Fiji. Rainfall is heavier during the ward season from November to April.  Surprisingly cyclones historically only hits Fiji once a year (10-12 times per decade).

The biggest sources of international visitors by country are Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
