Love Island

Where is Love Island Australia filmed? This year, it's a bit closer to home

Get ready for some love in the sun.

The Love Island season two premiere date is just days away and we are so ready for some hot bods and dirty drama to unfold on Monday October 7.
But this year's season is a little different, namely with the filming location. And season two is a lot closer to home.
Unlike the first season and the British series, the show will no longer be filmed on the sunny party island of Mallorca, but in the picturesque South Pacific island of Fiji.
The tropical paradise is also where Australian Survivor has been filmed for the last two seasons but we reckon the contestants will be enjoying a bit more luxury on their show!
While we don't know the exact location of the Love Island villa, Now To Love did get an insider tip that host Sophie Monk is staying at the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa in Natadola Bay, so it can't be far from there.

Sophie also shared a short video to her Instagram stories showing the view from a balcony and introducing the clip by saying: "Just hanging with the locals."
The camera then pans to a Fijian street where vendors can be seen selling fresh fruit and veggies on the road.
"Grocery shopping on another level," the Love Island host can be heard saying in the background.

Love Island's resident narrator also took to his Instagram account to share some behind the scenes footage of the Love Island Fiji filming location and we have to agree- there are worse places to stay.
Between the palm trees, crystal clear ocean and bright blue skies, this place sure does look like paradise!

Like last year, the islanders will be staying in luxury villa under one roof decked out with cameras in every room so that we at home don't miss a second of the drama.
And to amp up the drama, coupled-up contestants will be sharing one communal bedroom and will have to get cosy with their partner in double beds.
Last year's villa had a luxury pool, neon signs and even a make-up room stocked with blow-driers and hair straighteners. Let's hope this year's singletons get the same luxury treatment!

Thinking of having your own Love Island experience and finding love in the Fijian sun?
Peak times are in July/August and over the Christmas/New Year periods that coincide with the school holidays so you may be hanging out with lots of families if you go then.
However, February, March, June and particularly October and November are good times for to visit if you want to escape the crowds.
