Divers—from beginners to the know-no-fear variety—say Fiji is the spot to don a wetsuit. This stretch of crystal-clear South Pacific sea, called Bligh Water, is known for its vibrant coral reefs in hues of magenta, emerald, and gold. The reefs are home to tiny, darting fish such as purple fairy basslets and bright orange anthias. And where there are small fish, larger ones follow: Graceful eagle rays, white-tip reef sharks, and flashy parrotfish call this wonderland home. Gliding through the deep blue, some 40 feet beneath the surface, the colors are so bright it's like basking in the sunlight of the sea.
