It is believed that ancestors of the Polynesians were the first settlers of the Fijian islands, followed by the Melanesians. European settlement on the islands began in the late 1800’s, bringing over Indian labourers to work in the sugar plantations, whalers and missionaries.

The coastlines and beaches are home to coconut palms, creeping vines, soft shrubs, screw pines and frangipanis and a few species of land crabs. The reefs and surrounding waters are home to fur seal, dolphins, mantas, turtles and hundreds of species of tropical fish. Humpback whales are also seen during their yearly migration. Aside from the lush forests and secluded coastal plants, Fiji is known to produce an amazing selection of fresh fruits and vegetables including: papaya, passion fruit, bananas, mangos, pineapples, coconuts, plantains, pumpkin, sweet potato, taro, okra, sugar cane, cassava, noni and the kava plant, which is used to make the ceremonial drink, kava.

The Fijian archipelago is blessed with 300+ magnificent islands, of which only 110 are inhabited.
