Where to stay

Avoid family resorts. In fact, most of the resorts are either family or couple-orientated. If you’re after some solo travel time with the chance of meeting other like-minded people, then consider other accommodation options.

Nadi’s Wailoaloa Beach is often the first port of call for backpackers and solo travellers. With its affordable dorm rooms at Smugglers Cove and Bamboo, social beachfront vibe and regular nighttime fire and poi dancers, the area is perfect for making new friends.

If you want more nature and seclusion while still meeting new faces, try the Fiji Beachouse along the Coral Coast. With communal dining areas and daily activities such as surfing, island trips and jungle walks available, this boutique backpackers is a great set-up for solo travellers and offers plenty to keep you occupied when not lying in the beachfront hammocks.

Islands in the Mamanucas such as Beachcomber and Bounty offer great vibes for solos, while the more expensive island destinations like the Yasawas are more likely to attract couples and honeymooners.

Where to meet people

In addition to places with dorm-style accommodation, there are plenty of place and activities that are conducive to striking up conversations with strangers. Again, it’s best to step out of the main resorts. If you want friends to explore with, choose activities with group tours. Try a stand-up paddleboard day trip or sunset tour, head out on a river safari or join a beachfront horse-riding tour.

Dive and snorkel trips are perfect for meeting others as they’re usually quite intimate with only a handful of people on the boat – and everyone wants to share their stories when they get out of the water. The best island trips for solo travellers are sailing trips such as those run by Coral Cats. The smaller number of passengers on board are more conducive to solo travel and offer a mix of snorkelling adventures and ultimate relaxation on the bean bags of the catamaran.
