Whether you are eager to swim in turquoise waters, you are an adventure-seeker, you just want to relax on Fiji’s glittering sands and enjoy a romantic honeymoon, or you can’t wait to pamper yourself in an extravagant resort, Fiji promises to satisfy all your needs and desires. But, before you plan your sweet escape, read this article and find out all about the cost of your memorable Fiji honeymoon.
When to Plan Your Honeymoon
Fiji is a spectacular destination with constant temperatures throughout the year. So, if your trip depends on how sunny the weather is, you can go to Fiji whenever you want.
From November to April, however, you might encounter some tropical storms. To avoid them and have the honeymoon of your dreams, the best time to visit Fiji is from July to September. But this is also the high-season, so high-prices and crowds of tourists will be present. If you want to save on cost, plan your trip during the short, but very pleasant shoulder seasons, May to June, and October.
Airfares peak between April and June, and in December and January. You can pay around $800 if you choose to start your trip to Fiji at the beginning of April but, if you want to be in Fiji during the high-season, you should be ready to pay even more.
July, for instance, is usually the most expensive month, with flights costing over $1000. But, if your dates are flexible and you don’t mind searching and booking in advance, you can help keep costs down.
Travelers who visit Fiji usually arrive at Nadi International Airport (NAN), the principal international airport of Fiji, and a key regional hub for the South Pacific islands, situated by the coast on the western side of the main island Viti Levu, 9km north of central Nadi. If you are flying from the U.S. and you are looking for a direct flight, you can look for tickers from Los Angeles. The flight is about 10 hours long.
There is a large variety of accommodations in Fiji at various price points. For budget travelers, you can book a hostel or private rooms at Airbnbs with cost starting around $20 a night. For a three-star hotel on the beach, you can expect to pay around $150-$300. The cost goes up from there when considering luxury going up to $1000 per night. You can even stay in a liveaboard boat, diving around Fiji at different Islands. Below are some different resorts and hotels with a variety of price points to give you an idea.

Food Cost in Fiji
Meal prices in Fiji can vary, depending on the area and restaurants you choose, but, based on the spending habits of previous travelers, the average cost of food in Fiji can be about about $30 per day.
An average meal can be around $13, with breakfast prices usually cheaper than lunch and dinner. Also, as you can imagine, fast food and street food prices are lower than the cost of food to sit down restaurants. Also, meals are surprisingly affordable in many of the cafes and small restaurants available throughout Fiji.
The Cost of Local Transportation
Regarding transportation, the best way to get around Fiji is by bus. Pubic transportation can cost you around $8 per day, and the cost of taxi rides in Fiji can be significantly higher.
But, if you want more than to explore one island, you must travel by ferry and island-hop. If you don’t have a budget to respect, you can even get to other islands by plane.
When it comes to exploring Fiji, you can do this on your own, but keep in mind that it’s easier to access the major tourist attractions if you join one of the tours available. Renting a car is also a great idea, especially if you want to get off the beaten track. To hire a car, you need to be at least 21 years old.
Prices for activities and tours depend. You can, for instance, visit Fiji’s most authentic village, Navala, beautifully located in the interior of Ba, for $118. But you can also offer yourself an amazing 8-Day Blue Lagoon Paradise Cruise for more than €2000.
