#1 Coral Coast

If you're looking for a beautiful, central place to stay and enjoy the beach, the Coral Coast is a good bet. You'll find it on the southwest side of Viti Levu. Along its pearly white sands, you'll spot resorts and hotels galore. But even if you're not staying at one of these, you can access the shoreline from Queens Road, which runs between Nadi and Suva. Be sure to bring water, snacks and sunscreen with you, especially if you're not staying in one of the adjacent properties.

Energetic travelers will love the Coral Coast for its athletic offerings, such as Ecotrax, which offers rail-mounted push carriages that take visitors through lush Fijian landscapes. Visitors can also immerse themselves in Fijian culture for a day with the Fiji Heritage and Culture tour which takes visitors to places such as a pottery village and Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park. For more information, visit the website.
