Getting around Fiji

Transportation options include car rentals, tour buses, taxis, seaplanes, helicopters, other air transfers, or the local “open-air” buses. The open-air local buses are a unique way to travel, providing for some interesting holiday experiences!

If you decide to hire a car and drive in Fiji, driving is on the left hand side of the road. Most main roads are paved although many are in need of repair after recent flooding. A bona-fide tourist in Fiji may drive if in possession of a valid FULL LICENCE for the same class of vehicle. The maximum speed limit in built-up areas is 50 km/h (30mph) and on highways 80km/h (50 mph).

Air & Sea Ports
Nadi is the gateway to Fiji and is home to Fiji’s main international airport. Nausori Airport in Suva is also used as an international airport. There are several domestic airports throughout the country. Travel between the two main islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu is by air and sea. The major ports are Suva, Lautoka, Levuka, and Malau (off Vanua Levu). Lautoka is the main port for Western Viti Levu.
