Stopping over on the way to Australia:

Hey guys,

my partner and I are stopping over in Nadi for 4 nights/5 days on our way to Australia from Canada and are looking for some suggestions on sites to see, activities to participate in and places to go. At this stage we've booked all 4 nights in Nadi but after reading some posts I'm beginning to think this was a mistake as there doesn't seem to be a whole heap to do in nadi by the sounds of it...

Were both young (23 and 21) so ANY advice is hugely welcome.

Let us know what your interests and budget are - for white sands and palm trees, snorkelling, you are best to head for the offshore islands.

From Nadi, you can do a day trip:

1. river rafting

2. to Natadola beach

3. sailing around the Mamanuca group of islands

4. to a cultural centre to learn about Fijian history

Alternatively, you can jump on the Yasawa Flyer at 8.30am which will take you out to the islands. Consider stopping at Botaira Island Resort from some great snorkelling for a couple of hours before catching the Flyer on its return trip to the mainland.

Alternatively, if you are not happy with staying in or around Nadi, then look at the islands in the Mamanuca group or Yasawa group of islands. Mana Island is a lovely large island that caters to a lot of different likes and is not too far of the mainland. If you are after something a little more Fijian / rustic, have a look at Botaira Island Resort a little further up the chain of islands.

If you want some luxury and romance (but, it comes at a price), then look at Tokoriki Island Resort or Matamanoa Island Resort.

Happy travels!
