Nadi is probably the first place you'll touch down in Fiji, and Denarau Island is a good base from which to explore the beaches and the harbor, also providing easy options for day-trips to nearby islands. From the moment you arrive, immerse yourself in island life.

Fiji's first national park, these dunes rise up from the ocean in undulating shapes that make for great photo ops. But more than that, they're home to 22 species of birds, as well as an ancient burial site dating to about 2,600 years ago. Pottery,...

This dive joint is where locals go for fiery Indian dishes like goat curry (and other curries), chicken vindaloo, chicken biryani, roti and more. The funky scene is more street food than restaurant, so just be prepared for less than pristine...

Ask anyone in Fiji where to go out at night, and there's a very good chance that they'll mention Traps. There's nothing particularly special about the bar itself. It's a standard big room with a bar and some TVs on the wall. It's all about the...
