Tranquil. Pristine. Inviting.
Fiji’s capital and the South Pacific’s cosmopolitan hub, Suva is rich with both contemporary and traditional culture. Shops of every sort, tropical gardens, colonial architecture, a thriving art scene and vibrant nightlife beckon to every sort of traveler. The Fiji Museum holds a remarkable collection of archaeological material spanning Fijian history and is well worth a visit.
Journey just outside of the city to the wild Korobaba Range for hikes culminating in breathtaking views of the surrounding islands. Or visit Colo-i-Suva Forest Park for a day spent swimming in natural springs and birding. A cruise up the Navua River, studded with waterfalls, deep gorges and traditional Fijian villages, is another delightful day trip.
Trek on foot, bicycle or 4WD through the lush hills in search of stunning waterfalls, spectacular grasslands and lush forests. Visit remote villages for a taste of day-to-day Fijian life—making pottery, gathering wild herbs, fishing, lovo pit (underground oven) cooking and warm island hospitality.
The southwestern coast of Viti Levu is known as the “Coral Coast” for its spectacular snorkeling opportunities and wildlife (best seen at Kula Eco Park). This area is also a hotbed of traditional cultural remains—explore a sacred cave where cannibal ceremonies once took place or visit an ancient burial complex in the Sigatoka Sand Dunes.
Travel just south of Viti Levu to the small island of Beqa to kayak along its endless white sandy beaches, coral gardens and tranquil shores. Paddle through mangrove tunnels to access the tiny, uninhabited islands of Nanuku and Lawaqalevu.
An enchanting expanse of white sand and azure waters just off Viti Levu’s west coast, these islands are the famous shooting location of The Blue Lagoon. And it’s easy to see why—these islands are a dream of the South Pacific embodied.
