Looking for a place to cool off your feet from the tropical heat of Fiji? Whether you're a kid who wants to scoop and
splash, or an adult wanting a relaxing stroll through the water, Ankle Deep Water is my collection of very shallow
water areas that I collated incidentally while compiling
Swimming Hole Heaven
. Many are too shallow for a swim, but suitable for lolling about and
having fun. I have visited and enjoyed all of these sites. I've only explored a fraction of Fiji, so feel free to
suggest a location
elsewhere in Fiji for me to visit.
Select Your Shallow Water Area:
Click or tap on the title of each shallow water area below to find out how to get there and what to expect, or alternatively

areas have been divided into splash parks and shallow entry beaches.
Shallow Entry Beaches
Swim with fish in the shallow estuary of this picture postcard beach on the Coral Coast. Find out
how to bypass the resort guards to reach the beach and the one essential item you need to keep yourself
from being unhappy here…
This tiny island is the closest off-shore day resort to Nadi. We tried out the Finding Nemo tour, which includes a
ride on a submersible glass bottom boat over the reef around the island, and access to a shallow entry snorkelling area
on the island…
Water Theme Parks
Big Bula Water Park is a water theme park with a mix of giant inflatable slides and the recently added fibreglass slides, and
includes a special area for kids 5 years old and under. The prices are not cheap, but the giant, wobbly inflatable animals
will make you smile…
Despite scouring the various travel blog websites, I struggled to find reliable information about
Fiji before I visited. Here are some tips that might help your trip to run smoother such as
when to visit, eating in Fiji (including gluten free eating), hiring a car, etc…
Before you head out, make sure to read the water safety information
In addition to your own independent planning, risk management and safety measures, I suggest that if you are visiting these spots,
bring bathers, sunscreen, a hat, a towel, a pair of crocs or sandals, a set of warm clothes, a bucket and spade, and any inflatables
that you want. Bring a swimming nappy if your child is not yet toilet trained.
