Renowned as Fiji’s adventure sports hub, PACIFIC HARBOUR’s suburban setting seems rather dull on first acquaintance: the town was purpose-built in the early 1970s, drained from swampland and laid out meticulously with suburban driveways and intermittent luxury villas. The surrounding environment, however, is something quite special. The Navua River, some 10km to the east, offers stunning waterfall hikes and longboat excursions, whilst further inland, the high mountains of the mysterious Namosi Highlands offer fantastic 4WD driving, whitewater rafting and remote village treks. Offshore is the phenomenal Beqa Lagoon, with world-class scuba diving, including the raved-about shark dives, and serious game fishing.
