Continuing their odyssey eastward, the trade winds encounter another chain of volcanic peaks rising above the Pacific: Fiji. The archipelago’s 322 islands and islets are a heaven on earth for scuba divers, surrounded by clear, warm water in which swarms of reef fish meander among multicolored castles of coral. Further out, the volcanic seabed offers the spectacle of underwater cliffs and canyons, with sharks and manta rays gliding overhead. Even on land, the ocean is an important part of life. Influenced by the large Indian population that arrived in the 19th century, Fiji’s cuisine relies heavily on marine ingredients, with specialties like miti, seafood and vegetables cooked in coconut milk, and kadoka, fish marinated in lime and served in a coconut with a sweet coconut cream. A foretaste of paradise.
