Viti Levu Holidays   —  Where to Stay  —  Getting Around & Travel Info  

Viti Levu is the main island in Fiji with the popular Coral Coast along the tropical southern side of the island; and the sun burnt landscape of the Sun Coast along in the north . The Coral Coast is by far the most popular of the two for tourism, particular for family holidays - it's easy to access being just an hour to two hours drive south of Nadi International Airport along a fairly decent road. By contrast, the rural east coast of Viti Levu is devoid of tourism whilst the sunny north coast is dominated by sugar cane fields and has only a couple of small town hotels and beach retreats.

Reasons to Visit Viti Levu
  • Convenient to Nadi Airport
  • Shopping & Excursions
  • Sightseeing Holidays
  • Large Family Resorts
  • Adventure & Golf Holidays
Main Regions to Visit

Viti Levu Holiday Overview

Viti Levu has two towns worth visiting and two very different coastlines. The main appeal of the island is its accessibility and infrastructure with great sightseeing and adventure tours.

The Coral Coast has nice beaches and plenty of water activities, tours, sightseeing attractions and a great golf course. Close by is Pacific Harbour, an exciting adventure hub with river tours, rainforest experiences and shark dives, and all accessible on day tours from the Coral Coast or Suva.

Few tourists make it to the north coast of Viti Levu so this may be a better option if you really like getting out there and feel as though you're experiencing the real Fiji where adventures are accidental rather than planned. The main highlights along this Sun Coast are exploring the rural countryside and enjoying the laid back holiday atmosphere on Nananu-i-Ra island.

If you prefer a more familiar and comfortable holiday environment, the large hotels in Nad, and in particular on Denarau, offer boutique shops and plenty of great restaurants. In contrast, the gritty capital of Suva offers lively nightclubs and a sense of colonial history in the South Seas.

Viti Levu Travel Information

Viti Levu has a highway all around the island - the Queens Highway runs south between Nadi and Suva whilst the Kings Highway connects the north coast. The south coast (Queens Highway) is more populated with plenty of public buses, taxis and tour companies shuttling tourists back and forth. The journey from Nadi to Sigatoka takes just over an hour by car, and it's an hour further to Pacific Harbour with another half hour into Downtown Suva.

Another great way of visiting the best sights on the main island is by hiring a car from Nadi - there are a dozen car rental agencies at the Airport with rates starting from F$ 60 per day including insurance. If you don't fancy driving yourself, consider taking a local bus which circumnavigates Viti Levu with the southern Queens Highway between Nadi and Suva being the best route.
