10 Epic Day Trips You Can Take From Nadi

Nadi is more than the home of Fiji’s international airport. From this bustling town in western Viti Levu you can embark on unforgettable day trips that take you from lush forests to scenic hiking trails and remote islands. Whether you’re there for a quick layover or an extended stay, get ready for a fun-filled holiday. Here are ten of the best tours and daytrips from Nadi.

Discover Nadi

Fiji Culture Village

Immerse Yourself in Fijian Culture at Fiji Culture Village

Discover authentic Fijian traditions, entertainment and food at Fiji Culture Village, a unique cultural hub just minutes from downtown Nadi. Immerse yourself in local life, learning about Fiji’s history, iconic hospitality, village etiquette and even having a go at arts and crafts like mat weaving and pottery making.

There’s a day tour from 9.30am-2pm including a light lunch, or a night tour from 4.20-8.30pm with a hearty buffet-style lovo dinner, cooked in an underground oven. Both tours include a kava ceremony, meke dance and guided walk through the model village.

Cloud 9 Fiji

Experience Fiji's Floating Bars

If you want to take your revelling to the next level, Fiji’s got two world-class floating bars for you to tick off your bucket list. Spend your day soaking in the sun and snorkelling the reef before indulging in hand-crafted cocktails or ice-cold beer as the music beats on a two-storey floating platform in the middle of the ocean.

Cloud 9 is the original floating bar, known for hosting legendary parties and international DJs, a must-do for party animals. Seventh Heaven is a newer, bigger platform that’s a bit more relaxed, though they have designated chill and party days if you want to get wet and wild. Both are within easy reach of Nadi (in the Mamanuca Islands) making them a perfect escape from the mainland.

Soar Above Nadi: Ziplining Adventures

Take your Nadi adventure to new heights with a ziplining adventure.

Zip Fiji is just a 10-min drive from Momi Bay (35-min from downtown Nadi), boasting a thrilling network of 16 ziplines totalling five kilometres. Here you’ll get to experience not only a heart-pumping ride but also panoramic views from the top platform, and the trip includes a walking tour through limestone caves. If you’re up for even more of a challenge, upgrade to the abseiling package which includes four cave abseils of up to 40m.

The Sleeping Giant Zipline is another sky-high adventure option, just 20 minutes from Nadi by car. This 35-acre park has seven ziplines to zoom down at speeds of up to 40km/h, as well as a jungle safari trail with a waterfall and dinosaur park the kids will love.

Jet Ski Safari


Exploring Fiji's Waters on a Jet Ski

Embark on a jet ski jaunt from Port Denarau or the hotels along the Coral Coast, either through your resort watersports shop or with local jet ski legends Hydrosports Fiji or Surf/Dive/Ski Fiji.

The jet ski trips on offer range from a quick fun ride along an organised trail to let you or your family tick it off your bucket list, to more adventurous trips past beaches and bays, to epic journeys into the Mamanuca Islands complete with snorkelling stops.

Hidden Gem Fiji

Exploring Fiji's Waters: Boat Charters & Surf Trips

There are literally hundreds of islands and sand cays in Fiji so the options for a day trip on the water are endless. Leave it up to the experts and book a boat charter or organised tour to surf, fish or snorkel the hours away.

For those of you partial to a day on the waves, Fiji has you covered. From the legendary Cloudbreak to more chilled out breaks, intermediate and advanced surfers will be in heaven. Book a surf trip with Fiji Surf Co, Brothers or Dream Surf Fiji.

If you’d prefer to catch dinner rather than waves, try a half day or full day out on a fishing boat and search for tuna, giant trevally, wahoo and marlin with a skipper who knows all the best spots. You can book fishing charters with Hidden Gems or Dream Surf Fiji.

Experience the Heights: Hiking Adventures

Experience a dreamy sunrise followed by some pamper time with Sabeto Hiking’s combo tour, just 15 mins from Nadi. Start early with a hike up a mountain first-thing for an incredible sunrise show. Wander back down for a delicious brunch followed by a mud pool swim and massage to relax those muscles. You deserve it!

A bit further afield (an hour from Nadi by car) lies Abaca village, the gateway to the lush Koroyanitu National Heritage Park. There’s an easy 2-3 hour return path leading to waterfalls and swimming holes as well as a couple of challenging and longer summit hikes; steep but well worth the view.

Island Day Trips


Island Escapes: Day Trips from Nadi

Even if you’re only visiting Nadi for a little while, there are a number of spectacular islands just a short distance from the mainland that make for a perfect day trip.

Social butterflies should head to Malamala Beach Club, the world’s first private island beach club just a 25-min boat trip from Port Denarau. With pristine beaches, tropical cocktails and an infinity pool with expansive ocean views, you might never want to go home.

For a more chilled out day trip, cruise through the Mamanuca Islands on SABRE, a 78-foot catamaran complete with a waterslide, spend the day at South Sea Island or set sail to Tivua Island, another private island with dreamy beaches, loads of activities like a medicine nature walk, a traditional kava ceremony and coral planting.

Awesome Adventures offer unique snorkeling encounters with reef sharks and manta rays. And for castaway vibes on an uninhabited island, head to uninhabited Modriki island with Cruisin Fiji.
