I was in Fiji for three weeks. Activity wise I didn't really do 'that' much. I went on a few hikes but that's bout it! I went all around the main island. then I went to the island of Ovalau (town called levuka). Then i went to this wicked island called Caqelai. It is pretty remote. There were a few bures on the island. It's run by the methodist church from a neighbouring island. There were only five other guests there. It was so great. Much more like a family atmosphere. Everynight we would sit around and sing songs and drink kava. Such a great fiji experience. The island is so small that you can walk around it in 20 mins. Anyways the island is very basic but it makes you appreciate the beauty of fiji and is certainly off the 'backpacker trail'.
I also went to a few of the Yasawas Islands. There is a boat that does this everyday. It's very popular with backpackers so thats where most of them all. It was aight, but I truly appreciated seeing the other side of fiji. Copy and paste the links and you can read about caqelai.
Have fun and don't worry kava aint as bad as everyone makes it out to be!
