IF YOU'VE just about reached the end of your tether with the cold winter mornings, this super cheap flight sale might be your best bet to finding warmer weather.

Picture this: clear blue waters, hundreds of tropical islands and enough cocktails to fill a resort-style swimming pool.

We're talking about Fiji, which really has something for everyone - whether that be private island retreats, family resorts or heartbeat-raising adventure holidays.

Their national carrier, Fiji Airways, has launched a massive global sale, slashing fares by as much as 53 per cent to the island paradise.

Dubbed the "Bula Spirit" sale, return economy fares start from $589 out of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The sale comes hot on the heels of the airline being awarded a coveted 4-Star Skytrax rating this year.

But travellers will need to act quick, as the sale will only run until August 12, 2019 or until sold out.
