Swimming Hole Heaven in Fiji
Your guide to the best swimming holes

Swimming Hole Heaven in Fiji Fiji is well known for its beaches and coral islands, but its lesser known inland swimming holes offer some unique experiences that will add variety to your swimming holiday. The best time to visit is early in the drier season, around May and June. The wet season runs roughly from December to March, when heavy downpours can hamper road access to inland areas and flood swimming holes. It's warm enough for swimming all year round.

Here are two freshwater swimming spots on the main island, including a hot spring and a waterfall near Nadi. I have personally swum in all of these swimming spots to verify swimming conditions. I've also added some travel tips to try and dispel some of the myths about travelling in Fiji that I read about before I went, which will make your journey run smoother.

Sabeto Hot Spring and Mud Pool

Coat your body in silky smooth black mud, stand around and wait for it to dry (or even do some souveneir shopping covered in mud), and then wash it off in four successive thermal pools. Therapeutic and heaps of fun to boot…

Each swimming spot includes a link to swimming safety information. Please make sure you read that information before you head out, particularly if you are an inexperienced swimmer.
