Fiji is a near-endless archipelago made up of countless tropical isles, one more breathtaking than the next. The sheer number of islands – yes, there are literally thousands of them – means that Fiji sailboat charter itineraries can be tweaked, personalized and arranged in 101 different ways to suit your specific likes and most fervent wishes.
On our Fiji itinerary for 7 days, we focus on the outstanding Viti Levu, Fiji's main group of islands, where you'll find Suva (the capital) and all the major tourist infrastructure. Viti Levu comprises the world-famous Yasawa’s Islands in the north and drool-worthy Mamanuca's in the south.
On a Fiji itinerary for 7 days, these are the wonders that await you!
Day 1 Mamanuca Islands
Hop aboard your luxury home on the sea at Denarau Marina and spend the morning getting to know the fabulous crew who’ll guide you through the next memorable week sailing aboard your Catamaran charter in Fiji. Take your time unpacking in your cabin and take a tour of your beautiful Fiji sailboat charter.
Fancy a bucket-list start to your Fiji sailboat charter escapade? Today, you’ll have it! This afternoon we’ll sail to the Mamanuca Islands, heading straight for that breathtaking heart-shaped island which has, for decades now, been a magnet for visitors to Fiji. The stunning surf breaks here are legendary and, if you’re game, you could get your heart pumping with some invigorating water-based fun.
The Mamanuca’s are as spectacular as they appear on brochures of Fiji itinerary for 7 days and being popular with day-trip visitors offer, a kaleidoscope of on-shore activities and excursions in which you can partake. Unlike day-trip visitors, however, you’ll have your own private luxury catamaran charter in Fiji to retreat to at night.
Day 2 Malolo & Tavarua Islands
On your second day, you’ll get to jump in the water and hop on shore to enjoy the stupendous Malolo and Tavarua Islands, both glories for surfers, snorkelers, swimmers, kayakers…and shoppers aboard a catamaran charter in Fiji! For years considered one of the world’s foremost surfing destination, the Malolo and Tavarua islands are also prime diving sites, offering astounding visibility and a host of sealife-brimming coral reefs, including the spectacular Namotu Wall, a half-mile deep coral wall beloved by turtles, reef sharks, shoals of barracuda and, soon enough, you as well.
After an exciting day of fun in the sea, take a romantic sunset stroll on the beach while the chef prepares you a gourmet seafood dinner, and enjoy a few post-dinner drinks under the stars aboard your Fiji sailboat charter.
Day 2 Navadra & Vanua Islands
Spending a whole morning sailing on your catamaran charter in Fiji over crystalline waters is often rated, by our charter guests, as an absolute highlight of yacht chartering. On the third day of your Fiji sailboat charter trip, this is precisely what you’ll be doing. After a lazy breakfast and invigorating swim, you’ll set course for Navadra and Vanua, two breathtaking gems of this immense archipelago which offer the best diving in Fiji. Colorful reefs and inviting warm waters make snorkeling here an absolute pleasure.
Spend the afternoon kayaking or paddle-boarding and, if it can be arranged, you may also visit a traditional local village. Navadra’s neighboring islet was made famous by Tom Hanks when he played a ‘Castaway’ with a basketball as companion. Remember that startling scenery? Spend but a day on this pocket of heaven and you too may realize that being castaway on this island may not be the worst thing in the world, after all.
Uninhabited and totally unspoiled, Navadra is the epitome paradise and Vanua, although inhabited and offering a smattering of tourist-related activities, is still considered one of Fiji’s best kept secrets. On your Fiji itinerary for 7 days, Vanua is a hiker’s dream and today you can tackle unforgettable hikes across verdant hills and through luscious forests, delighting in refreshing waterfall swims along the way. On your Fiji sailboat charter, T this is your chance to truly soak in the essence of Fiji’s pristine nature at her very best.
Day 4 Naviti
A short and sweet sail north for an hour or so will see you reach Naviti, renowned as a sanctuary for manta rays. Try your hand at fishing or ask your Fiji sailboat charter crew to break out some of your yacht’s water toys. There’s nothing more enjoyable than playing about in these sublime Fijian waters. On land, explore Naviti’s rugged landscape. As the highest’ isle in Fiji, the volcanic scenery is resplendent here, with dramatic peaks and impenetrable forests beautifully framing hidden coves and stunning resorts. Shop, splurge in a spa, have a game of golf or simply find your ideal sundowner spot along the beach, before rejoining your crew aboard your catamaran charter in Fiji.
Day 5 Blue Lagoon
Brooke Shield may have given the Blue Lagoon its international fame, a few decades ago, but the fact is that this place has been a highlight for Fiji yacht charter guests for years. Meander through the underwater caves which have made this destination world-famous, and kayak to your heart’s content, discovering all the nooks and crannies hidden beyond palm-fringed promontories. A small but insanely gorgeous resort is just the ticket for a romantic dinner by the beach, or to indulge in a sundowner vino, or two.
Local crafts markets and a few divine shops ashore also await those who are suffering from souvenir-shopping withdrawal symptoms!
Day 6 Yasawa & Champagne Beach
By the sixth day of your Fiji sailboat charter vacay, you’ll be surely addicted to your ‘early morning swim and scrumptious gourmet breakfast’ routine. Not all routines are boring now, are they? Set off for Yasawa and Champagne by mid-morning, where you can enjoy terrific snorkeling and kayaking, or jump ashore to explore the wonders of these stunning volcanic isles. Devoid of cars, paved roads or anything resembling the modern world, these dreamy specks of land are home to chilled-out locals living in remote and idyllic villages. Tourism is a blessed addition to this world, and here you’ll find Fiji’s northernmost exclusive resorts, where a spa splurge may be beckoning your name. How about a sunset BBQ on that breathtaking stretch of pristine beach? After dinner, enjoy a traditional dance ceremony offered by a talented and welcoming local dance troupe.
Day 7 South to Denarau
On the last day of your Fiji itinerary for 7 days, we’ll be making a u-turn and returning to Denarau. Is there a favorite spot you wish to revisit? A reef that requires just one more snorkel? Or do you prefer to lie back on your open sundeck and take full advantage of the luxuries onboard?
On a Fiji sailboat charter itinerary…the choice is always yours. These islands have some of the best diving Fiji has to offer.
