Suva & Surrounds Highlights, Fiji


Suva & Surrounds Highlights, Fiji

story by: Inspire Fiji

If you really want to experience all the colour and diversity that Fiji has to offer, a stay in Suva is a must. The nation’s capital is the business hub of the region, and its colonial past is on display in buildings like the Old Town Hall and Holy Trinity Cathedral, but the overall vibe is pure Fijian. From the bustling and colourful markets to the variety of shops and restaurants in the city centre, you’ll find it a fascinating mix of colours and cultures. It’s also the source of one of Fiji’s most famous products, the Pure Fiji range of skincare. Drop into the factory for a tour and pick up some goodies to bring home. When you’ve seen enough of the city itself, Fiji’s adventure capital of Pacific Harbour is just an hour’s drive to the west. That means it’s easy to experience all that Fiji has to offer in one great holiday.


• COCO-I-SUVA-FOREST PARK – Eleven kilometres from downtown Suva, this lush rainforest park has 6½ kilometres of walking trails that navigate natural pools and gorgeous vistas and birdlife fills the park. The rope swings over the water are fun as are the stone steps across the streams.

• FIJI MUSEUM – An excellent museum right in the heart of Suva’s botanical gardens. There’s a remarkable collection of Fiji’s evolution and past, with original musical instruments, pottery, jewellery, war clubs and cannibal utensils on display. Worth a visit if you’re in the area.

• CURY HOUSES – There’s a number of curry houses in Suva, where those on a limited budget can eat like a king. They’re generally bright and cheerful places that serve up lamb, chicken, fish & vegetarian curries in canteen-style settings.

• MALT HOUSE BREWERY & RESTAURAN T – Serves up some decent home-brew and even better food. The wood-fired pizzas go down well or tuck into the seafood & meat dishes. It’s never short of a happy crowd & worth the trek from downtown.

• NATIONAL STADIUM – Fijian’s are fanatical about their rugby and if you’re in the Suva area over the season, March to October, it’s worth getting along to a local game. The atmosphere is huge!

• SUVA CRAFT MARKET – The endless colourful stalls at this craft market offer some great buys. You’ll find tapa cloth, wooden carvings, woven baskets, mats, purses and fans and traditional clay pots – but be prepared to bargain!
