Sunburn & Heatstroke​​

It gets hot outdoors even on an overcast day. If you’re headed out, grab a hat and some water to help you stay cool and hydrated.
Everyone loves a golden holiday glow, but severe sunburn or heatstroke can ruin your fun.  Protect yourself by applying sunscreen often.  Even better if you can opt for ones that don’t contain reef-harming chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate. 

Cuts, Stings & Bites

Fiji doesn’t have any venomous land animals, but the humid tropical weather can cause cuts and bites to become infected.  Always keep wounds clean, treated and covered.
Coral reefs have lots of jagged edges and tiny animals that can sting or bite so it's helpful to know which marine animals to avoid. If you get a sting or coral cut while swimming, clean it with iodine and apply an antiseptic cream regularly.
Carry a small medical kit with essentials. Most major towns have pharmacies (chemists) but your options dwindle on islands and in remote areas.  Don't forget to pack prescription medications - it’s better to be safe than sorry! 

For any emergency or enquiry, you have about health, it’s best to consult the hotel or resort you are staying at first. They’d have the best local knowledge and advice for the region you are staying in.  In lieu of that, the number for major hospitals or clinics are listed below.
