Nadi Airport is the gateway to experiencing the vibrant culture of Fiji
and its gorgeous landscape. If you're arriving on a late night flight, our Nadi Airport hotels are the perfect place to catch up on some sleep before heading out to explore this island paradise.
Things to Do
itself isn't really a tourist destination; it's more of a commercial hub and transit city. Nadi Airport is Fiji's main international airport, so just about everyone passes through here, but most visitors only stay long enough to catch a boat or bus to another region. If you would like to hang around for a day or so, though, there are a few things that you can do.
The centre of town is only 6km away from the airport, so as soon as you're refreshed enough to roll out of bed, you can hit the markets and explore some of Nadi's beautiful gardens. Everywhere you go in Nadi, you'll hear traditional Fijian and Hindi music playing. In fact, Nadi is home to the Southern Hemisphere's largest Hindu temple, Sri Siva Subramaniya. Plus, not far from the city centre is Sleeping Giant Mountain and the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, where there are more than 2000 different Asian orchid species!
Being the international transit hub that it is, there are plenty of western dishes available in Nadi, as well as traditional Fijian and Indian cuisine. It's not only western food that Nadi's known for, though. It's also known as being the best place to pick up essentials, before heading out to other regions. Be sure to stock up on things like sunscreen while you're here, because not many stores in Fiji stock that sort of thing.
Getting Around Here
If you're heading to the capital, Suva
, you can jump aboard a bus or minivan. But, if you want to see the rest of the Viti Levu
island, you could always hire a scooter and go exploring. If you don't feel like venturing that far, you can hit the beach at Denarau Island
, which is just a little north of Nadi's downtown area. From the Denarau Marina, you can catch a boat to the Mamanuca Islands
or Yasawa Islands
Whether you decide to stay in Nadi for the duration of your trip, or you want to go exploring, make sure you take advantage of these cheap flights to Nadi
. And don't forget to book your Nadi Airport accommodation with us, so that you can recover from your flight before heading out on your island adventure.
