NadiFiji

Fiji’s tourism hub is more than just a transfer point; Nadi also offers relaxing beaches, challenging golf courses, ancient temples and hot springs.

Nadi is located on the west side of Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu. The city is a good place to shop in the busy downtown area, relax on the beach or learn about local history at an ancient temple. Attractions range from a well-kept 18-hole golf course, to a beautiful orchid garden, to hot springs.

Sun yourself at Wailoaloa Beach or New Town Beach, which offer hotels, restaurants and shops. Dining options include a mix of traditional Chinese, Fijian and Indian dishes, as well as Western favorites.

Green thumbs will delight in the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, located about 10 minutes’ drive north of Nadi. Raymond Burr, most famous for playing the TV character Perry Mason, began this garden in the late 1970s. The impressive orchid collection now features more than 2,000 species and the site is still home to Burr’s holiday house, which is open to visitors for a fee additional to the entry fee to the gardens. The gardens are every day except Sunday.

Check out Port Denarau. Shoppers will enjoy ocean views while they sip a coffee, dine in an upscale restaurant or find something unique at one of the boutiques.

Visit the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, the largest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere, showcasing traditional Indian architecture.

After shopping and sightseeing, relax in the Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool, not far from the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. You pay a small fee to visit the springs and mud pool, and if you want extreme relaxation, pay an additional fee for a massage.

Stay safe in Nadi by taking taxis and adventuring during daylight hours. Avoid overcrowded and empty areas. Never carry valuables and watch out for pickpockets. Do not leave your bags outside of religious sites “out of respect;” they will be gone when you return.

Getting around Nadi

Using local transportation in Nadi is a great way to meet the locals and you’ll be making new friends in no time, not to mention paying a fraction of the cost of private transportation. Buses are cheap and plentiful, but best avoided if it’s raining, as there are often only canvas blinds for windows. For a similar price, you can flag down a carrier, which is a pickup truck with a makeshift roof on the back. Visit the Land Transport Authority website.Browse Nadi rental cars.

Best time to visit

The period between January and March sees heavy rainfall in Nadi, with the possibility of thunderstorms and cyclones. The rain eases off come April and May, which is a good time to visit, before Fiji gets busier (and more expensive) during the peak months from June to August. Whenever you visit, there’s no need to pack for the cold – average highs are in at least the mid 80s F (low 30s C) year round.
