Barely one square mile of Fijian island, Denarau is a manicured bite of holiday bliss. Luxurious resorts, sparkling swimming pools and an 18-hole championship golf course adorn its landscape, while a vibrant calendar of music events and cultural festivals colours its nights. Located less than four miles from Nadi, and the jumping off point for cruises to the Yasawa Islands, Denarau is built on reclaimed mangrove mudflats, and its busy marina is a rich source of freshly caught local seafood.
Powder-soft sands, clear skies and glittering lagoons welcome visitors to the Yasawa Islands. Admire the unspoilt beauty of this remote paradise during a hike into the towering hills, and enjoy breath-taking views of the 20 sparsely-populated islands and volcanic rocky peaks. The sun-drenched beaches here are straight out of your dreams. Stretch out on the sugary sands and swim alongside manta rays in the turquoise lagoon.
Covering the 80 kilometre stretch of sand between Nadi and Suva on the island of Viti Levu, the Coral Coast offers a more authentic look at life in Fiji with a pretty chain of palm-filled beaches and bays, interspersed with traditional villages and a huge array of reefs to snorkel and scuba dive. Here you can explore the shifting sands of Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park, climb a dune or two and spot the varied native flora and fauna with a cruise on the Sigatoka River.
A bustling hub of tourism and local industry, Nadi is the gateway to Denarau Island and the Mamanucas – a chain of 20 islands so perfectly tropical that Cast Away and Survivor: Fiji feature on their resume. Nadi is an excellent base for snorkelling, diving, parasailing, windsurfing, dolphin spotting and surfing some of the world’s best breaks. The town itself is an eclectic cocktail of shopping, eating and Hindi-meets-Fijian culture, complete with a colourful Hindu temple, Sri Siva Subramaniya.
