I live in Canada and will be stopping in Fiji for 3 days en route to New Zealand. I'll be travelling with my wife (I'm 27) and am looking for a place to stay. Essentially, a nice spot, on a nice beach, that doesn't break the bank account. I know it's a lot to ask for, but I'm hoping someone knows a few hidden gems. We're arrviing in Nadi on Dec 28 and flying out on the 31st in the morning.
Most of the resorts in Fiji, that aren't on the islands, are in an area known as the "Coral Coast".
Here, you will find many resorts of various prices. I can't remember how long exactly, but I do think the Coral Coast might be about a 2 hour car/bus ride from Nadi.
The Coral Coast is about 1 hr from Nadi, barring delays.
We stayed at a nice place called the Crow's Nest (www.crowsnestfiji.com)
A good value place, clean and organised, with an excellent restaurant.
Only about 5 min taxi from Sigatoka Town.
Enjoy Fiji Time.
