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.
