Fiji is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean. Its closest neighbours are Vanuatu to the west, New Caledonia to the southwest, New Zealand's Kermadec Islands to the southeast, Tonga to the east, the Samoas and France's Wallis and Futuna to the northeast, and Tuvalu to the north. Its capital and largest city is Suva.
The country comprises an archipelago of more than 332 islands. The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population. Fiji is often referred to as the heart of the South Pacific. It is a perfect holiday famous for its soft coral diving, white sand beaches and pristine natural environment.
