luckycamz40 :  Well as I said it depends on where in Fiji you go and what you like to do!

Honestly if I had to choose for you I would suggest Kauai rather than Maui but if it is your wifes dream then it’s her dream.

Also you need to remember the regions school holiday schedules. The people saying Fiji is less crowded than Maui are not correct. During Australian and New Zealand school holidays the area is overrun with families. It is also a very popular honeymoon destination for both countries as well (due to cost and distance).

Also since someone mention the Cook Islands, Atituaki was hit by a cyclone early this year which left it heavily damaged. We were there in April and they were still struggling and repairs were a long way off for some things. The weather is also something you need to consider. We were sailing around the area earlier this year as I mentioned and our itinerery got pushed because on the day we planned to resupply in Fiji the docks were closed due to a cyclone.

I live three hour plane ride from Fiji and it’s so average. Went to Hawaii on my honeymoon and it was incredible. Didn’t do maui but want to next time. I love Hawaii.

I live in Australia so seriously considered Fiji for honeymoon. I would only go there if it’s on one of the outter islands (not Nadi or the coral coast), especially one catering to adult only.

we ended up deciding on Cook Islands (with a trip to New Zealand tagged on).

I think either place will be fine. The most important thing is which resort to choose. That matters a lot.

j_jaye :  Ive visited Fiji during some of the school holidays and some parts are still quiet, especially if you visit some of the outer islands ie: yasawa or coral coast.
