One day probably means staying in Nadi, as it's probably the best place to get a feel for all Fiji has to offer in a short time. Arrange all your activities beforehand, so you can pack as much in as you can.
Start with a visit to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant to get a taste of the country's forests, then head downtown. Stop at the Hindu temple, do some shopping in the city center and grab a quick curry and roti (a signature Fijian dish) for lunch. In the afternoon, take an arranged tour of a local village. Then make sure to take advantage of the bright blue ocean—spend some time snorkeling, dolphin watching or boating. At sundown, enjoy the sandy beaches, relax in a hammock and take a walk on the white sand. After dinner, see a fire dance (the traditional “meke”dance) at one of the local resorts.
