  • Pacific Sun Airlines from Nai to...

    You can get to Savusavu from Nadi either by air or by sea. We chose by air, Pacific Sun's domestic carrier, as it is the faster route. We boarded our very small plane (about 16 seats total) for our hour flight from Nadi to Savusavu. It's important to know that there is a chance that your luggage may not make it on the same flight with you. They do...

  • Flying on Air Pacific from LAX to NADI

    I have flown internationally many times and this was the worst aircraft I have ever been on. We were in economy and not only were the seats small and narrow, the flight attendants weren't friendly and the TV's in our seats didn't work. Fortunately, we had our ipad so we were able to pass the 11 hour flight with our own entertainment. They also do...

  • Sailing onboard of a 2-mast sailingboat...

    This is another great way to explore the Fiji Islands and spend some time in the Southern Pacific: The sailingyacht "SV Spirit of the Pacific" might be a great place for you to take a cruise onboard of a traditional 2-mast sailingyacht.Read more about this great ship in my link below ! I was lucky to see this great sailingyacht from a short...

  • When you cruise to Savusavu

    When you are coming by cruiseship to Savusavu, your ship has to anchor outside of the port and the small tenderboats of your ship will take you ashore within a time of about 15 minutes one way.The landingplace of the tenderboats will be at a shopping-centre including also a travelagency, there might be local musicians like we enjoyed them there all...

  • When you cruise to Port Denarau

    Port Deanarau is not listed as a village on VT, but it is the port of Nadi and a popular port of the Fiji Islands.I came to Port Denerau onboard of the cruiseship Dawn Princess, a giant cruiseship with a capacity of more than 1900 passangers and about 1000 crewmembers and like all other big ships we had to anchor off the island and get in by...

  • When you cruise to Dravuni / Ndravuni...

    I came to Dravuni island by the cruiseship "Dawn Princess" and the only way to go ashore was by tenderboat, that means you had to queue up for some time in order to find a seat on a tender-boat taking you ashore.The island is quite small and easy walkable on your own, so there were absolutely no tours on this island organized by the ship-company,...

  • When you cruise to Suva

    In case that you arrive in Suva onboard of a cruiseship, you will be happy to know that Suva has one of the very few ports in the Fiji islands where even such giant ships like the Dawn Princess with around 2000 passangers and 800 crewmembers onboard will be able to dock right in the citycentre.That fact will save you a lot of time, when you want to...

  • CHEAP TRANSPORT FROM NANDI TO PACIFIC...

    A tip – take a shared van from Nadi to Pac Harbor and save on the trip to the resort. It’s around $15 FJ vs $100+ for a private taxi. It’s basically a non-stop ride except for the pit-stop the van makes for refreshments. The vans leave from a parking lot that is located across a grassy field next to the main bus station.

  • Blue Lagoon Cruises

    This is an extract from my journal:We have a drink in the pool bar while we wait for the Blue Lagoon pickup. There seems to be an awful lot of time wasting today, I suppose we haven't mastered the "chill-out" yet, after rushing around New Zealand. From our hotel we call in the airport, where we wait for 40 minutes for someone to arrive on an...

  • Hire car has expensive accident excess

    hire car was great, but the locals do drive a bit reckless and therefor there was an expensive accident excess, lucky for us we did not have an accident but there was one or two close shaves (small logs falling off the back of a truck, a driver almost backing into us in a hotel car park), the main road is okey but the other roads were in poor...

  • How to get around....

    Taxi's - easy to get anywhere. Very cheap and negotiable. Not the nicest, but they do they job. Friendly drivers and quite helpful.Buses - I've never taken one of these. Seems more like the locals transport. The Denarau Bula Bus is very good to get around Denarau Island and its FREE !Ferries - To/From the islands. Not the cheapest. But you don't...

  • The 'Yellow Boat'

    We used 'Awesome Adventures' to book our transfer from Malolo Island to Port Denarau. The boat is known as the Yasawa Flyer or simply the 'Yellow Boat'. The trip took about an hour. The 'Flyer' was clean and comfortable. Toilet facilities were well maintained. Snacks and drinks are available on board, as well as information on all of their other...

  • Pacific Island Seaplanes

    If at all possible I highly recomend taking a seaplane flight from Nadi to your island destination. The views are absolutely spectacular, providing a perspective that is not possible from a boat. It also of course, makes transfer time very fast...we were on our island within 15 minutes of leaving the airport. The check-in staff are very helpful and...

  • Kayaking

    One of the most enjoyable ways to explore your little area of Fiji is to Kayak. Most of the resorts offer free use of them, for the duration of your stay. It is not difficult at all, and is OK for all fitness levels. Use a life jacket if your swimming skills are poor, (although they are very stable), or simply don't go out too deep...the waters are...

  • Taxis are cheap

    I had to get from Suva right across to the other end of Fiji island and it cost an absolute pittance. You have to share with others, but that's fun, and the driver will stop when you ask for pee stops or a drink!

  • Going by bus

    Buses run regularly around Viti Levu. It's cheap and quite fun way to travel around. Often the turn on loud music or screen a film during the ride. The buses stop everywhere as long as you tell them or wave along the road. Nadi-Suva costs around 11 FJD and takes 4 hours.

    more
  • The Yasawa Flyer

    This is THE way for backpackers and other budget travellers to get to and between the Yasawa Islands and the mainland. And to be honest, it's a pretty good service, and it's very well run. They offer a variety of packages to get you around the Yasawas during your stay, including all inclusive deals taking you to set islands and set accomodation; 7,...

  • Ferry to Ovalau

    To get to Ovalau by ferry buy a ticket at Patterson Shipping Company at Nina Street in Suva.If you take the express bus of 08.00 am in Nadi, you will be in Suva at 11.30am. Then you have enough time to go to the office of Patterson Shipping company and buy a ticket for the ferry. It is a combined ticket for the bus-ferry-bus costs FJD 19.The bus...

  • Yasawa Flyer

    Although the Yasawas are very touristy it is very nice to choose one or more islands to stay on.The best way to travel to the Yasawas (and Mamanucas) is by Yasawa Flyer from Awesome Adventures.When you stay at Nadi Bay Hotel and several other hostels in Nadi there is also a free pick up from the Awesome Adventure Bus to drive you to Denarau Marina...

  • Local busses

    There are several options to get from Nadi to Suva. You can go buy taxi. Or by local bus.When you go buy bus you can choose two options. The Coral Sun Express bus is an airconditioned coachbus. A good bus. This bus must be booked in advance. If you stay at Nadi Bay Hotel they pick up from that hotel in the morning. FJD 19.The Pacific Express. Is a...

  • Boat is best!

    Flying is by far the most convienient way, but I also met people that had arrived by boat.On the main island itself, the taxis seem to be reasonably priced and are probably the best for getting around Nadi. Fiji also has its own local airline, that you can fly to some of the larger islands in the group. But for reaching the outer, smaller islands,...

  • Van to pier

    We met the van and driver at the Nadi airport,drove to Lautoka Hotel in Lautoka.There we picked up more people, then we were taken out to the pier to get on the boat that took us to Waya Lailai eco Haven.

  • Sun Air

    Easy to get sea weary so the odd flight to/from the islands is well warranted. Small planes so get in the front seats and get a pilots eye view. We only flew at 400 feet so got some million dollar views.Contact me as I have loads more details at home here.

  • Driving

    Some people say to rent a car and to drive around Fiji yourself. Others say its suicide. I dont know either way, but I can tell you it is a peculiar driving system. The public buses are good and reliable, and if you are unsure about driving yourself, they are a cheap and safe alternative.

  • Bula Pass

    Many people have asked about the specifics of the Bula Pass so I thought I should create a tip about it. The Bula pass can be bought for 7 or 21 days. It is good for as much travel in the Yasawas as you can fit in. Here are the specifics and rules:1.) The boat is the Yasawa flier, it leaves form the marina in Denarau just outside Nadi at 9am every...

  • Ignore the hassling taxi & minibus...

    When I was staying in a budget hotel near the Nadi Airport on Viti Levu I’d wait for the local bus to take me into town and be repeatedly pestered by all manner of minibuses and taxis on the main road sharking for my business to take me into town. However ignore this lot and take wait for the bus. a) It’s cheaper ($5 for the taxi, which considering...

  • Getting to the western islands.

    There are two ways to get to the island where Musket Cove and Plantation Resort are. On one trip, we flew - which offers great views of the reefs and turquoise water. The other, slower way is to take the boat.Boats leave from Denarau, a modern harbour in the swanky new resort area of the same name.

  • Air Fiji

    I did about 11 flights with Air Fiji. I found the airline a breath of fresh air. And there is just something funny about getting into a plane that looks like Cheech and Chongs van! No redtape no hassel. You tell the ticket agent where you want to go they write a ticket and you go...or if you change your mind they are really flexible. You can...

  • YASAWA FLYER

    The Yasawa flyer is a boat ran by Awsome Adventures. If you are going out to one of the islands chances are you will ride it. The trick is to get your monies worth. Most trips cost at $F40 oneway. So if you plan to stay in the islands and hop around a BULA PASS may be the way to go. It costs 199$F for 7 days or 265 for 21 days. The boat is really...

  • "Air-conditioned" buses

    While in Fiji, I did have access to cars and drivers, however we often took taxi's which I found pretty affordable and easy to get. They're often in filthy shape with no working seatbelts, but they get you to and fro. :) I'm thinking the average price was around $2USD to get from the village I was staying in to downtown Suva, I'm sorry I can't give...

  • Island Express

    The Island Express is another way to get to the outer islands. This will take you a few hours to a day depending how far your resort is from the main island, you have to stop at every island resort to drop off passengers which is a good way to see where to plan your next holiday to Fiji.This is a very relaxing way to travel around, seeing the...

  • Rattlers

    Travel around Fiji is a bit like a rollercoaster ride, the roads are bumpy and full of potholes.The cheapest way to get around is by bus also known as rattlers. These are buses with no windows and sound like they could blow up at anytime, but they are an experience to have. Rattlers run to most towns and villages around Fiji, and you wont have to...

  • Plane to Musket Cove Resort

    Musket Cove Resort, situated on Plantation Island is lucky enough to have an airstrip, you can take a small plane to the island which takes roughly 20 minutes. This is a good way to see islands and reef formations and is also the quickest way to get to your island resort paradise.

  • Cabs

    If you'd like to take a cab, try bargaining the price down. You can also hire a cab for the day but if you do, don't let them talk you into where THEY want to go (though make note of their suggestions). Cabbies can get kickbacks from stores when they bring customers in.

    We took Air New Zealand from LA to Fiji... it was a great flight and was only about half full. The trip back was more crowded and had a 4 hour layover in Honolulu, but they still had great customer service. I wouldn't recommened driving as the people there tend to drive on the extreme side... best to grab a taxi and hang on for your life.

    The local buses. They can be late or not come at all at times, but they're a cheap and easy way to get around. On the coral coast you can catch the highway buses, which stop wherever people want them to (so don't be in a hurry!), or the express buses, which stop at the resorts along the way from Suva to Nadi and Singatoka. Taxi's can be expensive...

    Any way you can. This picture was taken from the back of a truck on Levuka, and island just east of the main island. I'd stayed on an even smaller island, Leluvia, for a couple of days and was due to fly out to Australia later that day. I'd just got back onto Levuka by speedboat, this truck was taking me back to the capital, Ovalau. I then had to...

    Air Pacific is a wonderful airline! All Fijian staff, started in Fiji. Take taxis...I would never drive here...it's crazy. I thought something was odd about the roads we were on and I finally realized that (in Nadi on Suva) we had not seen a single traffic control device. Boats are the way to go to hop from island to island, unless you can afford...

    Airliners are the normal way to get to Fiji though some people are lucky enough to be able to sail there on a yacht. Transfers to Beachcomber Island from Nadi or Lautoka can be arranged when you book. Once you're on Beachcomber it only takes about 10 minutes to walk right around the island so there is not really any need for cars etc. Transport off...
