For most tourists, Nadi’s nightlife revolves around quiet resort bars, with happy hours usually running from 5.30pm to 6.30pm. To immerse yourself in the local after-hours culture you have to head to either Martintar, popular with Nadi office workers, or the south end of Downtown where pool bars, kava saloons and a couple of raucous nightclubs are the hangouts for urban and rural Fijians. Apart from these two areas, and the resort enclaves of Denarau Island and Wailoaloa Beach, Nadi after dark is pretty much a ghost town and roaming around on your own isn’t recommended. Traditional dance shows are held at several resorts and are usually free to watch, with a blend of animated Fijian war mekes, elegant Polynesian-style hula and enthralling Samoan fire dancing; some are combined with lovo buffet dinners. Times may vary, so it’s worth calling ahead. There’s a multiplex cinema next to the Capricorn Hotel in Martintar.
