  1. SO many beautiful places !! And I really loved the Blue lagoon!! When is the best time to plan a trip to Fiji and which resorts or hotels would you recommend for staying? I really think Fiji is totally worth a 7-day trip as there is a lot to see in this place.

    • Hi Shrey,

      Fiji is absolutely beautiful! Everyone should go there at least once in their lifetime!

      You won’t need to stay in a hotel as the sailing trip include comfortable cabins with food and all you need to enjoy. So there is no need to worry about these details.

      The weather in Fiji is beautiful throughout the year and from November to March it is usually the rainy periods, but even in those seasons, there are still plenty of sunny days. I would say that the best time is from Mai through October to sail the Fiji islands.

      I hope it helped and if you need any help, just drop me a message in the comment, or you can contact me as well at any time. I will be more than happy to help you:)

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a great day!
