Fiji is a dream for travelers looking for sun and sea. With more than five hundred islands bathed in the Pacific Ocean, boasting reefs and beaches of exceptional beauty, this is a paradise for lovers of relaxation, scuba diving, and water sports. No wonder this archipelago has served as the movie setting for Alone in the World and Blue Lagoon for its postcard-like landscapes. You too will be seduced by the charm and beauty of this country. The islands of Mamanuca and Yasawa are the pearls of Fiji. In the evening, a trip to Suva, the capital, or to Lautoka, the bustling port city, is the best way to end the day with a touch of conviviality.

Medical Care in Fiji

In large cities, travellers are assured to find free and equal access to public health care. However, note that health care in certain islands is very limited, with insufficient equipment and medical staff who are not highly qualified. In the event of a serious medical injury or illness, evacuation to Australia, New Zealand or Belgium is necessary. The fees for this evacuation will be high, and therefore it is recommended to purchase medical insurance before you leave. MIOT Pacific Hospitals (formally Suva Pvt Hospitals) is one of the main hospitals in Fiji, and offers quality care and a decompression room for diving sickness. Suva also offers Lautoka Hospital and the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.

In order to access a reliable pharmacy, you should go to the city of Nadi. However, be warned that you may not find some American and European medicines. It is best to have common medications on hand for treatment.

To call for emergency services, dial 911.
