Transfer from Coral coast to Island??? help please!

Hi all!

I am finalising our trip to FIji over Christmas, and trying to organise the transfer from our hotel on the coral coast (Bedarra Inn) to Amunuca island, but I don't find many solution!

The boat transfer from the mainland to the islands seems to be happening only from Denarau port, is there any ferry or boat transfer departing from the coral coast, is that right? is there any way we can get onto a day trip to the island from the coral coast and get transfered to the island? Or do we have to pay for a taxi from our hotel to denarau and then pay for the boat transfer?

Thanks a lot for your help!

You will have to make your way to the port at Denarau Island.

Yes and you will need to organise a transfer.

If money is tight I can offer some cheaper alternatives however the most convenient way is by taxi,,

Yes, unfortunately you will have to catch the boat at Port Denarau to get to Amunuca. You will be able to arrange the transfer once you get to Bedarra your options are for either a taxi, hotel transfer or local bus, but the tour desk at the hotel will be able to get you all the info you need.

If you are staying at the Bedarra then one option would be for you to catch a bus to Sigatoka town and then connecting either a Mini Bus or Bus to Nadi and then take a taxi down to Port Denarau

The slightly expansive version would be for you to do a taxi from Bedarra to Port Denarau - otherwise check with South Sea Cruises - they do provide shuttle coach transfers from the coral coast to Port Denarau and this costs around F$25 per person which you can book directly with them

There are 2 boat schedules ( a morning run @ 0900 and an afternoon boat run departing Denarau @ 1515 ) for Tokoriki, Amanuca & Matamanoa

Depending on the size of your group, sounds like you are better off organising the transfer with the company for $25 per person.

If you catch a bus or mini van you have to get off at Nadi and catch a Westbus to Denarau. All too much of a hassle to the start of your lovely day

Your easiest option is to go with South Sea Cruises and organise a pick up from Bedarra for a extra cost. They will take you straight to the marina for transfer to Amunuca.
