Catch the Fiji love bug
Sydney, 21 July 2011 - Since a teenage Brooke Shields fell in love to the backdrop of Fiji’s beaches in the 1980 film Blue Lagoon, romantic hearted couples and honeymooners have been making the trip to Fiji to find their own natural love – and more now than ever before. A record number of Australians have visited the archipelago of 330 islands so far this winter: it seems all of Australia is looking for a dose of medicine from doctor love.
A popular destination for celebrities, Fiji’s white sandy beaches, palm trees, beautiful coral reefs and seclusion, fit the bill for the perfect romance. A romantic getaway to Fiji gives couples the chance to thaw out, de-stress and indulge in some of life’s best treats: full body massages, steamy days by the pool, sunset cocktails and romantic dinners on the beach.
For the more energetic, there are plenty of activities to embark on such as snorkelling, diving, waterfall treks, white water rafting and sailing around the many islands. Cosseted by the treats the island paradise has to offer, visitors are further treated to the warmth and friendliness of the Fijian people, greeting you with a warm hello - “Bula” - at every turn.
Pockets of Fiji can be expensive especially if you occupy your own exclusive island. But not everyone needs this kind of holiday. Just as LivingSocial lets people discover new services, experiences and attractions at deep discounts in their city or places they visit, LivingSocial Escapes help couples find the perfect excuse to get away and re kindle their passion without the big price tag.
