    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.

    Port Denarau is located on Fiji's Denarau Island, which is connected to Viti Levu by bridge and is just a 20-minute drive from Nadi International Airport. Of course, you can hop on a boat and sail to other islands – like the Mamanucas –from this port. But you can also stay on dry land and enjoy the hotels, restaurants and shopping at the approximately 32,800-square-foot Retail and Commercial Centre. There's also an 18-hole golf course and opportunities for water sports like jet-boating.

    Recent visitors enjoyed visiting the marina, saying that it has a variety of delicious food options. Several travelers also noted that there is a convenience store, which is a good place to avoid expensive hotel prices on travel essentials. You can peruse Port Denarau for free at any time, though individual shops and restaurants operate on individual schedules. For more information, visit Port Denarau's website.
