Only accessible by cruise ship and the nearby inhabitants of Aneityum, you'll truly get to experience life on a deserted island.

In Lautoka, the second-largest city in Fiji, you'll find wide-open streets lined with swaying palm trees and colonial-style houses. To start your journey, check out the Lautoka Sugar Mill, the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere — it's this establishment that's earned Lautoka its name "The Sugar City." Take the ferry to the nearby Mamanuca Islands, and relax in the turquoise waters under coconut palms; don't forget to bring your snorkeling gear. Or stay inland: Find rejuvenating mud baths at the Sabeto Hot Springs, and explore waterfalls and mountain streams at Koroyanitu National Heritage Park. Or take the short drive to nearby Nadi, with its Hindu temples and retail-centric Main Street filled with the tones of Hindi and Fijian music.

As the southernmost Loyalty island, Mare is the first to welcome the sun's golden rays in the morning.

Descend into Trou de Bone, a limestone cave leading to lush gardens and a natural pool.
