Kava is Fiji's national drink, often offered to guests as a symbolic gesture of welcome.

Head over to the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park after the boat ride for a history lesson.

Buried under these sands dunes are pottery and human bones dated over two millennia.

Day 4: Adventure time!

Strap onto a zip line for a thrilling alternative to see the island. Zip Fiji offers ziplining tours in caves, canyons and even through mountaintops. This activity is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

Once your heart is back in your chest, learn to whip up a delicious local meal. Hosts from Flavours of Fiji will be on hand to guide you through the steps and make sure that you don't steal any morsels before serving time.

Stay the night at Castaway Resort Island, where you can enjoy some exclusivity in a stylishly designed thatched wood hut.

Day 6: One last nautical adventure

With the beach at your doorstep, simply dive in for some early morning snorkelling or go on a glass bottom boat trip to view the island's pristine corals.

Then it's time to say goodbye and head back to the airport.
