Beach romance at Castaway Island
Below gives an idea of what each location is like and what activities are available on top of what your resort offers. The more luxurious your resort, the more it offers. Hopefully this should shed some sun... err I mean light ;)
The main island is your point of entry, namely Nadi International Airport near Nadi. Viti Levu is the most convenient as just a bus or taxi transfer is mostly likely all you need to get to your resort.
Viti Levu also has the most variety of activities, tours, and things to do in Fiji. Nadi and the Coral Coast areas are the best areas for choice and variety.
However, the beaches run a distant second place compared to the outer islands. Snorkeling generally isn't recommended here.
Denarau Island - More luxury resorts and hotels per square inch of sand than anywhere else
Those picture perfect postcards of island paradises having perfect weather and beaches, that's the Mamanuca Islands. Around 20 island strong, they start just off the Nadi coast which makes for an easy transfer.
It's a watersports heaven including diving, snorkeling, surfing, cruises, sailing, and kayaking. Basically all non-motorised watersports and motorised. The other popular pastime... extreme relaxation on perfect beaches!
You really can't go wrong here.
Plantation Island (Malolo Lailai Island), Mamancucas, Fiji
Continuing on from the Mamanucas and you get to the Yasawa Islands. Just as stunningly beautiful, more isolated and less visited.
The 20 or so sparsely populated islands being more secluded means some uber-cosy resorts tucked romantically between beach and palm trees. Diving, snorkeling, cruises, sailing, and watersports again are your pastimes.
The Yasawas are very hard to beat.
Waya Island, in the Yasawa Islands
Vanua Levu is the 2nd biggest island and a change of pace from Viti Levu. The lack of tourist infrastructure coupled (pardon the pun) with a mountainous interior means just a few scattered resorts in the south-east.
Seclusion along with unspoilt beauty makes hiking, tours, and birdwatching a treat. Diving is fantastic with other recommended activities being snorkeling, kayaking, yachting, cruises, and chartering your own vessel.
You'll need a domestic flight to Savusavu in most cases. Transfer by boat is possible, although not recommended as it takes significantly longer.
Taveuni is also known as the Garden Island of Fiji and so named because of it's wild dense tropical rainforest. That means great for birdwatching and also for hiking and tours within. Along it's coast has sporadic black sand beaches. For white sand you need to go to it's smaller off-lying islands of Qamea and Matangi which has stunning resorts.
Underwater is just as wonderful as in the interior. Diving and snorkeling is world class with incredible corals and sealife including sharks, turtles, manta rays, and if you are lucky whales.
You'll need a domestic transfer to Matei Airport. An interesting note is that the international dateline cuts right through Taveuni. So for the easily amused, you could technically jump from one day to the next and back.

So the different island (areas) offer something a little different. While finding an ideal Fiji honeymoon destination is great, the biggest factor in my opinion is the choice of resort, and that is where you should concentrate your efforts. These wonderful resorts can be found by starting at our hub Fiji honeymoon section.
Bottom line. Find an excellent resort and you will have a honeymoon that you've dreamt about. The location is the icing on your honeymoon cake!
