Best resorts to stay in Fiji
Suva is the largest town in Fiji and is the Island’s capital. As you would expect from a vastly populated town, Suva is very cosmopolitan and is enriched by many cultures. Suva is a great place to stay if you want to get to see how the people of Fiji mix modern lifestyles with traditional practices, with many art galleries, museums and theatre spaces, holding shows and exhibitions to give you a real feel for Fiji. There are many bars, restaurants and shopping centres that you would expect in a capital city plus there are walks and tours that you can take to look at the history to explore the natural wonders of the island. As with most parts of Fiji, there are great swimming and water sports opportunities in Suva and there is always a space to be found to simply relax and soak up a little sun. Nightlife is vibrant in Suva, with hotels and bars putting on entertainment as well as nightclubs where you can dance the night away.
The Coral Coast is an impressive 50 mile stretch of beaches that you would feel is only worthy of dreams. Large hotels can be found across the area, with luxury at the forefront. As well as tailor made diving and snorkelling tours on offer, active holidaymakers can enjoy long coastal walks, brisk swims in the sea and a round or two of golf. Most nightlife comes in the form of hotel entertainment but there are some beach bars and restaurants where you can enjoy time outside of your hotel complex. Tourists wanting to get a true taste of Fiji come to the Coral Coast area to explore some of the remote villages, just outside of the main tourist traps.
