There are plenty of attractions around Suva worth exploring on day-trips or by staying overnight. Off Suva Point is Nukulau Island, which has the only sandy beach and snorkelling reef in the vicinity. Inland, the tranquil forest park of Colo-i-Suva forms a boundary between Suva and the wet mountainous interior of Viti Levu. The mountains feed the impressive Rewa River, which drains to the north of Suva through Nausori town and into the vast, mangrove-lined Rewa Delta. This region, and the coast to the north, is home to the chiefly villages of Rewa and Bau – the latter once home to Cakobau, the only King of Fiji – and remains the most influential power-base in Fiji.
