Coral Coast


Coral Coast is an 80km (50 miles) stretch of beaches and bays along the Ocean Road between Nadi and Suva.

As a well-established tourist destination, the Coast offers both the full resort experience and a chance to visit the real Fiji in the many villages along the way. Golf, beach life, and diving are there for the taking, but for travelers who seek a more authentic experience, many villages operate homestays. From a fisherman selling his day’s catch on the roadside, to bargaining with a local at the Sigatoka Market, true island life is here.

Getting Here

There are three main ways of getting to and from the coral coast, catering to everyone’s needs,  the First option is to hire a car for a few days, this will allow you to explore the whole of the coral coast at your own pace, we have written an in-depth step-by-step guide providing you with all the companies and requirements.

The second option is to take a Pacific Transport or Sunbeam Air Conditioned Coaches run continuously every day – the ‘stopping bus’ does exactly what it says, picking up whoever waves them down from the side of the road, although there are also express services available, these stop at the major towns and Tourism hubs only, allowing them to keep to a tight schedule.  (Coach Travel Step by Step Guide)

And the final option is if you like adventure then give the Viti Mini Buses a whirl. A fast and furious ride from Sigatoka to Suva will cost you between $15.00 & $20.00 FJD one way or the trip to Nadi is around $10 FJD. You can flag these down at the roadside if they have space left and they always seem to manage to jam another person in.
