About Nadi

Aerial view of Nadi, approaching Nadi International Airport
Aerial view of Nadi, approaching Nadi International Airport
Nadi is a transit point for other destinations in Fiji. It may not be such a great place to spend any time but you may find yourself here whilst awaiting ferries, boats to outer islands or planes to and from home.

If you do decide to stay in or around Nadi, make sure you are prepared to be approached by people trying to get you into their shop as you walk down the main street. These people aren't threatening, but you do need to watch your valuables.

You may also encounter an underlying air of racism between the Indian and native Fijian populations, but this rarely comes out in the open.
