Nadi offers a huge range of tours and activities, allowing you to sample the nearby islands of the Mamanucas and Yasawas, hike inland to remote villages, or try out scuba diving or deep-sea fishing, all within a day. If you just need to kill a few hours, Denarau Island offers excellent golf and tennis. You’ll be able to book day-trips and activities at your accommodation but note that hotel and resort tour desks always give preference to operators, paying them the highest commissions, or even promote private tours with family and friends. If in doubt, contact the operators listed here direct or try Sun Vacations at Nadi Airport. Tour operators offer complimentary pick-up and drop-off from all Nadi hotels. Bear in mind that if you’re staying near the airport, the journey to Port Denarau (departure point for island trips) takes over an hour meandering around the suburbs and town picking up other guests; to save time, you may want to travel by taxi, which will cost F$22 one-way and take 20min.
