About Fiji

Fiji is an independent country in the South Pacific lying on the border between the Polynesian and Melanesian regions of the Pacific. It is comprised of 322 islands, only about a third of which are inhabited, with a total area of 7,056 square miles.

The majority of Fiji is mountainous (volcanic in origin) with several peaks exceeding 3,000 ft. The balance of the smaller islands are a mixture of coral and limestone. Barrier reefs ring most islands.
