Along the southern coast of Fiji’s main island is an 80km stretch of beaches and bays between Nadi and Suva known as the Coral Coast. It was here in the town of Korolevu that Fuji tourism got its start in the 1950s. Since then, the area has become quite popular and is today well-established with backpackers. This area is considered one of the most beautiful on the entire island with its abundant natural beauty. Coral Coast is easily accessible via road from Nadi.
Island living, leisure, and luxury abound within the Coral Coast. Gorgeous beaches offer paradise for those looking to sit back in the sand and take in the views. They are also excellent jumping off points for the diving that can be experienced here. Away from the waters, heading inland leads to Sigatoka Valley. This area is nicknamed “Fiji’s Salad Bowl” for the green fields that patchwork the land. Lawai and Nakbuta are two villages found along the way and offer handicrafts for sale. Past Nakbuta, a steep road goes along a narrow ridge. Those who can brave the journey are rewarded with amazing panoramic views. Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park
boasts an extensive dune system as well as an archaeological site that is said to be 3,000 years old. The Coral Coast also caters to the eco-tourist with Kula Eco Park
– Fiji’s only wildlife park.
Accommodation is readily available with the Coral Coast. A range of properties cater to the budget backpacker or the high-end businessman. Be sure to check out the interactive map of Coral Coast for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
