Lautoka draws travellers away from the hustle and bustle of Fiji’s south shore with promises of mountain ranges and exciting excursions. Offering all the attractions of the capital in a smaller package (except for the market, which is the largest in the country!), Lautoka holidays are ideal for adventurers and beach bums alike.
Things to Do in Lautoka
Whether you want to post up at an oceanfront cabana with a frosty beverage or paddle, swim and dive your way through your trip, Lautoka accommodation puts you front and centre to all the aquatic action. Take an “o-fish-al” trip from Vuda Marina to explore the beautiful Mamanuca Islands, or make a splash snorkelling or scuba diving.
Back on land, keep your feet on the ground but let your imagination run wild with accommodation near Garden of the Sleeping Giant. Lying in the shadow of Mount Koroyanitu, this horticultural haven is dressed to impress, with more than 2,000 types of colourful orchids and orchid hybrids, plus lily ponds complete with froggy friends. You’re sure to find it quite “ribbit-ing.”
Getting To & Around Lautoka
Your flight to Fijian wonderland will touch down at Nadi International Airport (NAN), about 25 km from the city centre. Many Lautoka hotels and resorts will arrange transportation to and from the airport in air-conditioned shuttles or town cars. If you’re not so lucky, or you want the freedom to take in other sights around the island, Wotif’s car hire deals are a great option. However, if your holiday plans consist solely of working on your tan, a taxi from the airport will serve you just fine.
Ready to keep it “reel” on a relaxing island getaway? Trawl through the best deals on Wotif and choose your ideal Lautoka hotel. Then get ready for the beaches, boardwalks and boat trips of Viti Levu Island’s northwest shore.
