About The Magazine

Fiji is a frontier market for international property investors and the most urban of the South Pacific’s Melanesian countries. And with 332 islands, there is an interesting inventory of real estate picks- from quaint farm houses to private islets and everything in between.

As the country’s leading real estate website, the launch of a magazine edition of the same name compliments a highly successful online presence. Free of charge and distributed at select outlets, this flagship magazine has been widely welcomed by readers preferring a print medium of Fiji real estate news and a catalogue of coveted properties by legitimate, licensed real estate companies.
