Time off from the tee

-

River rafting or sea kayaking:

Discover lush tropical rain forests of Fiji's remote highlands, cascading waterfalls and the canyons of the Namosi Valley. This is just some of what can be experience­d with Rivers Fiji based in Pacific Harbour. With tours that cater for the novice through to the experience­d on the river or sea.

Kula Wild Adventure Park:

Formerly known as Kula Eco Park this is Fiji's only wildlife park. It is located just off the Queen's Road opposite the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort. Wander through the forest, interact with the animals or get a bit of adventure with the water slide and canopy flier.

The Park doubles as a captive breeding facility for some of Fiji's endangered native wildlife such as the peregrine falcon, Fiji ground frog and crested iguana and is also an education facility for Fiji's schoolchil­dren. Both programs are fully funded by tourism gate-takings. This is about as wild as Fiji gets.

DINING

All resorts listed and many others offer a range of dining options onsite and welcome diners from other resorts.

For a change of scenery there are also excellent restaurant­s at the Port Denarau marina, mostly right on the waterfront with stunning views. There are menus to suit all tastes, with steaks, Italian, Indian and Asian cuisine on offer. Of course, freshly caught seafood features on many of the restaurant­s' menus.

For authentic local Fijian dishes dine at Nadina or try Tu's Place, half way between the airport and Nadi, or Taste Fiji during the day for great coffee and food.

In keeping with the golf theme lunch and dinner are served at the Fiji Premium Club House Restaurant, at the Denarau Golf & Racquet Club, 7 days a week from 10am to 9pm.
