Hugging the west coast of Fiji, island paradise Nadi exemplifies the lifestyle of the tropics – welcoming, deeply relaxing, and lots of fun. Stroll through the sun-soaked streets and browse the town’s extensive range of souvenirs, cloths and traditionally-handcrafted wares, or explore the region’s abundance of beautiful attractions, like Hindi temples, pristine swimming spots and the Garden of the Sleeping Giant.
As the premier tourist hub of Fiji, the township has a diverse array of retail opportunities and culinary options. If you’re visiting to take a break from the unrelenting pressure of everyday life, it can be nice to just browse the streets and enjoy the locals’ hospitality; for traditional, Western-style shopping, visit stores like Jack’s of Fiji, Prouds and Tappoo, or, if you’re in the mood, engage in some polite bargaining with local merchants.
As might be expected, some of the best eateries in Nadi are actually cocktail bars, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring the kids along – as a high-frequency destination for holidaymakers, the majority of restaurants cater to families. There’s a diversity of different dining options, too. From Tunisian to Japanese to barbeque to tradition Fijian food, you’ll find something that excites your tastebuds.
For those wanting to experience the natural and cultural wonders of Fiji, Nadi has plenty to offer. One of the town’s most famous attractions is the Sri Siva Subramaniya temple, a majestic religious complex featuring a multi-tiered temple dedicated to Hindu deities. Denarau Island, home to WorldMark Fiji, has stunning beaches and a sprawling eighteen-hole golf course; alternatively, if you’d prefer hiking to swinging an iron, the massive Korovanitu National Heritage Park offers walking routes that snake through lush rainforests and around spectacular waterfalls. The Garden of the Sleeping Giant also offers natural delights, albeit in a more contained environment. This carefully-sculpted park is threaded with walkways designed to relax and soothe visitors, and features over 2,000 species of orchids.
