The archipelago islands of Fiji are all about the ocean. With only around 10% of Fiji’s territory being on land, you can bet those beautiful turquoise Pacific Ocean waters surround anywhere you go.

There are hundreds of islands, almost all of them with stretches of beach and littered with coral reefs, that vacationers can choose from.

With the potential for days spent lounging on the beach and exploring the undersea world of coral and tropical fish, what better way to experience it all than by staying at a beach house in Fiji? Surely with all this ocean, a hotel just doesn’t sound appealing, does it? Personally, I think nothing beats having your very own space next to the sea.

From rustic cottages to luxury pads and everything in between, you can find a beach house in Fiji for any type of traveller. But then that begs the question: where do you start?

Well, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve curated a list of the very best beach houses in Fiji so you can find the perfect property for your vacation without needing to stress.

So, when you’re ready, let’s get started…

Staying in a Beach Houses in Fiji 

Beach houses in Fiji feel more authentic than any other property you will find in Fiji. That’s because Fiji is all about being on the ocean and being surrounded by beaches. While there are a few privately owned beach houses that can be rented as vacation rentals, many of the best are located in resorts or homestay environments.

Hold up there: before you start thinking of a resort as a high-end luxury (yes, those do exist), there are different types of resorts scattered throughout Fiji. A fair few of these are community or family-run locations that feature a few beach houses and only a handful of staff who’ll not only help your stay run smoothly but who actually introduce you to Fijian culture.

So while you’ll be able to arrange snorkeling trips and horse rides along the beach, these sorts of places will show you the ropes in terms of tradition with things like Kava ceremonies for travelers who want to immerse themselves in island life.

But for those who want a different kind of island life – as in, doing absolutely nothing most of the time with a view of a white sand beach and turquoise seas – that is most definitely a possibility. As I just mentioned, there’s more than one type of resort, and if you’re more in the market for an all-inclusive luxury getaway, then you’ll find beach houses in Fiji with these credentials.

What to look for in a Beach House

The first thing you should look for is the location. Fiji has many islands to explore, but the main one’s travelers tend to go to are Viti Levu, Suva, Nadi, Denarau Island, Kadavu, and the Yasawa Islands. Of course, if you are looking for where to stay in Fiji that’s more remote, then you can find those islands too.

Most independent beach houses are set in off-the-beaten-track locations on islands other than Viti Levu. Whatever you go for, most of the time you will be treated to airy spaces, sea views, private outdoor space to kick back in, and comfy interiors for the ideal beach getaway.

If you’re looking for a luxury beach house in Fiji, make sure you check if the property has a swimming pool, maid service or butler service (yes, these are common amenities!) and meals included.

If you are traveling on a budget and want an authentic experience, go local. These sorts of resorts may not be super high-end, but they surprisingly often feature meals as part of the per-night price and have the added bonus of introducing you to Fijian culture. It’s a good bet for solo travelers, families, couples or friends alike who want to see more than just a gated community. Perfect for those backpacking Fiji!

If you’re staying somewhere more remote, check whether there is a supermarket nearby, otherwise, you should make sure to stock up on supplies. Most beach houses come with fully equipped kitchens unless you’re staying at a resort with meals included – then you’ll need to check if there is a self-catering kitchen available.

Since you are staying by the beach, you should check whether your accommodation comes with beach gear and snorkeling equipment, as I’m sure you’ll want to check out the corals in those divine waters!

If you’re not sure where to look for a beach house in Fiji, don’t worry, I got you. My personal favourite place to find these properties is Airbnb. You can find some properties on Booking.com or Vrbo, but Airbnb has more options available, and it’s nice to be able to communicate with the hosts before you book.

But you do need to set quite a few filters to find the hidden gems. If that sounds like too much work for you, check out my top picks below!

Final Thoughts on the Best Beach Houses in Fiji

There’s nothing quite like the prospect of a vacation in Fiji. This island paradise of a destination features a whole lot going for it: culture, coral, and turquoise seas lapping powdery white sand beaches. What a place to reset, relax and make some memories while you’re at it.

If you’re looking for somewhere in a far-flung location where there’s no WiFi or even electricity, you can find that in Fiji.

Equally, if you’re looking for somewhere super comfortable with all the modern conveniences (and more) that you could ever need or want, you can find that too. There’s a beach house in this archipelago for everyone.

And while you’re thinking about your trip, make sure to check out some travel insurance. If you’re jetting to Fiji from another country entirely, and that’s highly probable, you should consider getting covered by insurance. It’s definitely something to think about in this topsy-turvy world of ours!
