Travelling with a baby
After 6 weeks of hopping around Australia, including volunteering with kangaroos and koalas, socialising in Melbourne and testing various watering holes in Sydney, a babymoon felt properly due. A 4 hours flight from Sydney, we landed in Nadi and headed to Denarau.
Exotic and far far away for the Europeans, Fiji’s first impressions were green and lush with impressive mountain shades fairytale like. Denarau beach and around not that impressive though: sand is rather brownish and the sea more of a lagoon in here.
We chose Hilton for location, convenience and design. All of that proved right; food options also ok and we alternated a couple of evenings – heading by the beach to their Sofitel V neighbours and treated ourselves with some nice meals and wines.
The Fijians we came across – very warm, curious and friendly.
But for the brochure seas you need to head out to the islands – a couple of hours by boat. This is where watermelon smelling Fijian seas lie, shallow and crystal like occasionally, enchanting with dolphins and bluer when deeper.
Wished we stayed longer and gave Jean-Michel Cousteau hotel a try – it is on our list to get back to!
