Last 2days in Fiji sightseeing

Hi all,

We are traveling to Fiji on our honeymoon where we’ll spend the majority of our time on the outer islands in the Mamanucas and Yasawas. We’ve decided to spend our last 2 days on the main island to do some sightseeing and we are looking for some advice.

1) Where would be a good hotel\location to base ourselves in the Nadi area?

2) What are the main sites you’d recommend for full day tour from Nadi?

We were thinking of renting a car and visiting the Garden of the sleeping giant and then on to Sigatoka to see the sand dunes and Kula bird park. We’d like to get a good feel for the Fiji mainland before heading home to Europe.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks for your help

What you have decided to see is good. Where to stay, Novotel, RafflesGateway or Mercure Hotels are good places to stay

Hi HOOKED ON FIJI,

Thank you so much for your reply.

We were actually trying to decide between First Landing resort as its close to the Vuda Marina or stay at Denarau in the Hilton/Radisson

We are staying at Navini island first and then moving on to Paradise Cove resort so we have the option of returning to Vuda Marina (on the resort boat) or Denarau (on the flyer)

I guess it comes down to which location is best for 2 days sightseeing.

Thanks again

You could also consider spending those two nights on the Coral Coast which has the advantage of being a lot easier on the eye than most accommodations within the Nadi area and has quite a lot to offer by way of sight seeing. Of course it will depend on your flight and transfer times... if you are coming back late from the islands you may not want to travel another one to two hours and the same in reverse if you have an early flight.

Editing to add that First Landing would be a better choice than most of the hotels in and around Nadi which are most often used for overnight stays pre and post transfers and flights which they are great for but not with as much Fiji vibe as a place like First Landing.

I agree with Dianz, First Landing would be a great choice for your last 2 days. Close to Garden of the Sleeping Giant, and if you have time The Sabeto Springs (mud pool). Has a great vibe, very friendly staff and good food.
