When you are travelling to Fiji for a stupendous vacation, you should know that you won’t be just doing one thing. You will be diving, you will be enjoying the long walks on the beach and savouring cocktails parties. And for all that, you need to be ready.
Even a packing ninja makes mistakes and forgets things to pack. Don’t take chances. Here is a packing list for you to reference when you are travelling to Fiji.
Packing List For One Week’s Trip To Fiji
Fiji’s climate is a tropical marine but is usually warm year around. You will be enjoying a temperature between 18-25 °C in the evening and 24-31 °C during the day. So your packing list highly depends on this sort of a climate, especially the clothing style. So here is the list for you.
You can ignore what you think is unimportant for you in the list below.
High SPF Sunscreens
A high SPF sunscreen is a must when travelling to Fiji. Sun can be really harsh in Fiji. Also, if you are planning to stay on the beach for a long time, you might have to reapply the sunscreen every two hours. A broad spectrum sunscreen is must for the packing list for Fiji.
A tropical insect repellant is a must for Fiji packing list. Resorts usually provide insect repellents but its better to take your own with you that suits your skin and is not allergic. Mosquitoes can be really cruel. Always use a repellent that does not contain diethyltoluamide. Diethyltoluamide can be allergic when applied with sunscreens.
Fiji is undoubtedly a beautiful place with beautiful islands. It’s too hard to not capture this beauty in the camera. I would suggest not to just rely on a phone camera but take a good quality camera. An underwater camera will be a good option to capture this spectacular beauty. Don’t forget to get a spare memory card just in case you are not tired of clicking. Carry a tripod with you if you need.
Mask And Snorkels
If you plan to do snorkelling, you might consider packing your own mask and snorkels. No doubt you will be getting masks from the resorts. But these masks are frequently used and can be stretched due to this. It will be good to carry an anti-fog mask so that you don’t miss anything.
Reef shoes are split toe surfing boots that are made from 92% Nylon/Polyamide, 8% Elastane that makes it waterproof. Nuts and bolts are made from F’N Lite neoprene which is a cell-rich limestone and is used for lightweight warmth. They are the best shoes for surfing and since they are porous, they dry quickly for the next use. They will help you avoid the cuts form the sharp rocks.
You might be staying in some resort that is far from the city. And in case of emergencies, you can not wait to reach a hospital or a nursing home. Keep some of the emergency medicines or aids with you.
- Bandage tape
- sunburn treatment
- Already prescribed medicines if any
There is no point in changing every two hours and then again going to the beach. Instead, take a sarong with you so that you can cover-up while having lunch and then directly head to the beach.
Tote bags for beaches is a nice option. They are washable and easily available in the market. Also, they are spacious enough to keep all your important items like sarongs, sunscreens, sunglasses etc.
Sunglasses and Hat
Make sure you don’t forget the essentials, when in the sun. Hats are a necessity on the beach. That will help you save your face, neck and shoulders from the fierce sun. Sunglasses will also be helpful on the beach. Your eyes need protection from the sun.
Your phone and your camera will be used a lot since you will be uploading pictures and clicking pictures. Do not forget the chargers with you or else you will be clicking pictures for just a day and not more than that. If you are carrying a laptop, then don’t forget to carry their chargers as well.
If going to a village tour in Fiji is a part of your itinerary, it will be good to carry small gifts with you for children or for the teachers at the school. Books and stationery are a good option for gifting the students.
Make sure you wear comfortable clothing when you are travelling to Fiji. Here is a list that you can carry with you. This list will be helpful for a week’s packing for Fiji.
- Buttondown Shirt
- Modest Skirts
- Short Sleeve Shirts
- Trousers or Pants
It is always good to carry your toiletries with you even if the resorts or hotels provide you with the toiletries.
- Shaving kit
- Handwash soap
There are walking trails in Fiji that you can not miss because you don’t have the correct footwear. Carry the footwear and enjoy the trek. To enjoy the waterfalls and national parks you need good footwear.
There might still be a few items that you need apart from this list. Think and pack! This might be a lazy job, but it’s always good to do the lazy part rather than regretting later.
