Set of Survivor and Cast Away (2000) featuring Tom Hanks
Off the western coast of Fiji

If you are heading to Fiji, looking for your stereotypical resort in tropical paradise experience, look no further than the Mamanucas. This archipelago of roughly two dozen islands in western Fiji is conveniently located off the coast at Nadi, where Fiji's international airport is located. You get in through Port Denarau.

It is going to be cliché galore here for a moment but at the same time we know that is exactly what you are here for. Palm-fringed white sand beaches, crystal clear warm and shallow waters, coral reefs... actually, you know what? Nevermind. Have you seen the movie Cast Away that premiered in 2000 and featured Tom Hanks? It was filmed on Monuriki, one of the Mamanuca Islands. Survivor was also filmed in the same chain, so as they say, 'nuff said. [Review by travelindicator]
