Private Transfer from Nadi Airport to Hotel
It’s time to switch off, rejuvenate and unwind, because within moments of landing in this tropical paradise you’ll understand what they mean when they say "Fiji time".
This nation of luxury resorts and private islands offers a diverse range of activities to suit every travelling style. From the sunset-seeking honeymooners to the adventurous family unit, one moment you could be sipping cocktails on the beach, the next you could be snorkelling with turtles and whale sharks. The choice is yours.
With frequent direct flights from Sydney and Brisbane, Fiji is also one of the most accessible tropical nations for Australians.
Getting around Fiji is budget-friendly and can be done easily.
On the main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu transportation is common and affordable and as such, walking is not a common form of transport.
Below we share all the ways that you can get around the mainland as well as from island to island cheaply.
Types of transport: Buses can be hailed from the side of the street, carriers, which are trucks that depart when full, minivans, taxis.
Paying for transport: All transport in Fiji is paid for in cash unless booked in advance where credit cards may be accepted.
Budget, Hertz, Avis, Europcar, Bula Car, Carpenters and Satellite Rentals are all available at the arrivals concourse in Nadi International Airport. Cars can be pre-booked online or booked at some hotels.
Private boats: Ferry services are available between Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni, Ovalau and Kadavu. Alternatively you can hire a boat for an island transfer.
In conclusion, as with most holiday destinations, the price you pay will depend on the level of luxury you wish to experience. You can holiday relatively well on a shoestring budget, but if you're planning extravagance, you'll need more spending money.
Fiji's wet season runs from November to April and as a result it experiences a much larger amount of rainfall during that time than in May to October.
Couples considering honeymooning in Fiji may want to consider Likuliku. It is a unique luxury escape for couples that's located on Fiji's Malolo Island in the Mamanuca archipelago. This award-winning resort offers couples a five-star experience in a beautiful and extravagant Fijian location.
But with so many islands to choose from and a variety of adult-only resorts, the possibilities and options are almost endless. Do shop around and read reviews.
Again, for families, there are so many different resorts on the different islands of Fiji to choose from. Some of our recommended options are:
Homosexuality was only legalised in Fiji in 2010, which may lead to public displays of affection being frowned upon. Although having said that, the Fijians are largely a friendly and welcoming population so you shouldn't encounter any discriminatory behaviour.
There are some Fiji resorts that cater specifically to gay couples so if you're in any sort of dilemma, this is always an option.
Yes. Fiji's remaining volcanoes are scattered around the country and still experience thermal activity. Some of these volcanoes have not erupted for several hundred years. Koro is a cinder cone volcano that rises approximately 1,713 feet high between Vanua Levu and Viti Levu islands. Nabukelevu is a complex of lava domes that is located on Kadavu island.
Gambling in the islands of Fiji is restricted to sporting bets and the local lottery. It does not have any casinos.
In 2012, an exclusive casino gambling licence was granted to One Hundred Sands Limited for a period of 15 years. The casino was planned to be built on Denarau Island; however, the construction of the resort suffered delays, resulting in the withdrawal of investors.
Here's a recommended list of everything you should take with you when holidaying in Fiji:
Passports and any required travel documents including copies of your travel insurance.
No. Fiji is a part of Melanesia, not Polynesia. Fijians are not Polynesian, they are Melanesian. However, their native language has more in common with Polynesian than Melanesian.
Yes. Fiji is an independent country as recognised by the United Nations. Officially known as the Republic of Fiji, it is an island country in Melanesia situated in the South Pacific Ocean.
Yes. Despite it having a relatively small variation in daylight length, Fiji implemented daylight saving time in 1998–99 but ended it after that. Fiji recommenced observing DST in 2009 starting on 29 November and ending on 26 April 2010. The decision to recommence the practice was due to a productive activity report detailing the implementation of daylight saving in 1998 and 1999, which received a very encouraging response from the people and the business community.
There are no significant issues concerning safety in Fiji. We do advise that Aussies express the same due diligence with their personal safety and belongings as they would anywhere.
Theft from hotel rooms has been known, as has bag snatching, and thus we recommend safeguarding your valuables and especially your passports.
Public health officials have reported that mosquitoes in Fiji are infected with Zika and have been spreading it to people. Many of those infected with Zika virus do not get sick or only experience mild symptoms. However, infection during pregnancy can cause severe birth defects.
Because there is no vaccine or medicine for Zika, travellers should take steps to prevent getting Zika during travel and to prevent spreading the virus on their return home. Due to the impact of contracting Zika on pregnancy, we highly recommend avoiding Fiji if you are pregnant or trying to conceive until public health officials have confirmed the danger has passed.
