What to do when it rains in Fiji

Okay, so you're on your tropical holiday in Fiji and suddenly the tropics get the best of you and it starts to rain. At first, this might feel like a big let down. You didn't come all this way for a grey sky! But if it does rain, don't pout - pivot and make a new plan.

Today we're going to show you all the cool things you can do in Fiji just in case things get a little stormy.

Make it a spa day

Fiji has tons of spas which you can visit when the rain starts to pour. Treat yourself to a day of luxury - fully body massages, facials and a mani-pedi. You'll feel refreshed from head to toe. Besides, what's one of the sounds that people find most soothing? Rain! You'll be in total relaxation mode by the end of the day.

Visit Fiji Museum in Suva 

Get your culture on! A trip to any new country wouldn't be complete without learning something interesting about its history, so you have to head to the Fiji Museum. Here, you can peruse an impressive collection that holds artefacts dating back almost 4,000 years. The museum also features an array of indigenous objects that have been collected since the islands were settled. It's a great way to learn more about traditional Fijian culture.

The Sabeto Hot Springs

You know what, you should just embrace the rain! Swimming in the rain is a fun experience, but it'll feel even more enjoyable when you're relaxing in the hot spring water. It's unique to feel the cool rain on your face as the rest of your body is submerged in the warm water. It might get a little slippery, but the point of the hot springs is to be covered in mud so there's really no better time to go!

If you enjoy swimming in the water when it's raining, you can also always go to the beach! It shouldn't be too crowded. Please note, however, this is not a suggestion for when it is a thunderstorm - in that case, avoid the water at all costs.

See? A rainy day doesn't sound so bad after all, does it? At this point, you might even be hoping to score at least one rainy day during your time in Fiji. Enjoy!
