Diverse sea life, an abundance of coral reefs and gorgeous blue water are just some of the reasons why Fiji diving is so popular. This tiny island nation in the South Pacific ocean has also been described as one of the best places in the world to see sharks close up. Strong currents in the water here make visibility excellent, and Fiji has dive sites that appeal to beginners, as well as those more experienced. The main island and some of the smaller ones have world class dive schools, and a popular option for visiting divers is to live aboard a dive boat for a period. Dolphins, whales and rays can all be seen in the waters here, as well as sharks, and the variety of sea creatures is a big draw for many divers. Away from the diving, Fiji boasts great beaches, wonderful scenery, friendly people and a unique and fascinating culture.
