With resort restaurants that you can hop between, a large waterpark, 18-hole championship golf course and bustling marina nearby, it’s a destination within itself.

For shopping, dining, a supermarket and daytrips to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands, head to Port Denarau – the bustling heart of the island. Getting there is a breeze on the Bula Bus which runs every 10-15 mins stopping by all the resorts and key activities on Denarau. The super-affordable local Westbus makes regular trips from Denarau into Nadi town, but taxi trips from the island to other parts of Nadi can be more costly.
