AS THE MOST developed part of the country, getting around Suva itself is easy, owed to its good public transport networks, whilst equally there are extensive boating networks that enable travel between Fiji’s main islands.
In and around Suva in particular, travelling by road is by far the most effective method of getting around, with an abundance of taxis and rental car services on offer.
Further, there are two airports on the island of Viti Levu – Nausori Airport in the east and the more popular Nadi Airport on the west coast.
Nadi Airport alone welcomes more than 1.2 million international passengers and 450,000 domestic passengers through its terminals each year, servicing 20 airlines that connect Fiji to 14 cities internationally.
Yachting and cruising are also considered to be great ways to explore the country’s many smaller islands, whilst air travel again can be the way to go for some of the more remote areas.
Pacific Sun, the domestic arm of the government-owned Fiji Airways, serves the internal market with a range of small twin-propeller planes, and with deals often available via the airline’s website, flying can often be not only the quickest but also the cheapest way of navigating the country’s different landmasses.
