The Coral Coast is picture-perfect and great for families! Stretching 80km along the southwest coast of Viti Levu, the region features palm-fringed beaches in stunning bays and a large surrounding reef teeming with incredible marine life. Getting to the Coral Coast can take between 1 and 2 hours from Nadi International Airport. The drive is easy, following the Queen’s Highway and, along the way, travellers will be able to glimpse traditional Fiji life. Pass a range of authentic villages and plan a trip off the beaten track. The region is rich in history and customs—a great place to learn more about the legends and culture of the country!
The Coral Coast was the first area in Fiji to be developed into a tourist hub. Today, a range of world-renowned resort chains occupy the region’s beachfronts, including the Warwick Fiji, the Fiji Hideaway Resort & Spa, the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort and many more! Each of these resorts have a range of services that are perfect for families. Enjoy cultural nights, kava tasting ceremonies, calm lagoons that are safe for swimming in, horse riding tours along the beach and the famous Fiji Meimei nanny services. Even the fussiest of eaters will be satisfied at the onsite restaurants and the kids can be entertained with the host of activities available at engaging kid’s clubs, while the adults escape to the spa!
Surfers are known to flock to the Coral Coast too. The region is home to some of Fiji’s famed reef breaks and, at the Hideaway Resort & Spa, there’s even a surf-able break that doesn’t require a boat trip! Snorkel or dive amongst tropical fish or opt for an inland adventure—catch the Coral Coast Railway to visit a village or join a knowledgeable local guide on a tour to the nearest town, Sigatoka. Browse the craft and food stalls at the local farmers markets or sign up for a truly heart thumping adventure at the Sigatoka Sand Dunes or on a river safari!
