Located on the south west coast of Viti Levu, Fiji's Coral Coast is just 90 minutes from Nadi and is one of the world's largest fringing coral reefs. Studded with pristine beaches, peaceful bays, stony bluffs, lush forests, mangroves and a plethora of traditional Fijian villages, the Coral Coast is renowned for its impressive mountain ranges. Offering an excellent range of accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets, the Coral Coast is the perfect holiday destination to get a sample of Fiji's rich culture, historical sights, natural attractions and water based activities.
Home to a number of Indian temples and mosques, Sigatoka is the region's main town and offers a bustling marketplace offering everything from farm fresh produce to clothing, jewellery, home wares, handicrafts and hand-woven coconut leaf products.
A holiday to the Coral Coast is not complete until you visit one of its most popular attractions, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes. Just 45 minutes from Mango Bay, they have been produced by fluvial erosion and are approximately 5 km long, 1 km wide and an average of 20 m high. Having been formed over millions of years, the dunes are a natural sight to see and are covered in shrubs and vines.
Another must see when on holiday on the Coral Coast is Fiji's adventure capital, Pacific Harbour. A unique destination, it is home to a number of high end resorts, an arts village, cultural centre, a string of shops as well as places to pick up the essentials like groceries and liquor.
This well maintained complex is a tourist's delight with an excellent range of restaurants, a bank and two ATMs, an island massage haven, handicraft shops and even a smoothie bar. You can also take in some amazing sights at the cultural centre including traditional dance shows and even firewalking. There are also a number of diving centres, tour groups and a golf course nearby making it a vibrant hub for all things fun-filled and adventure-packed on your Fiji holiday.
For all the nature lovers, Kula EcoPark is a dream come true offering a captive breeding centre for endangered animals. The fascinating and educational centre asks a small entrance fee to tour the beautiful grounds of the park and observe hundreds of animals including Fiji's vibrant parrots, bats, turtles, fish, iguanas and more. Although it is better known for its vast array of animals, Kula EcoPark is also a stunning botanic garden and offers an excellent selection of local plants, flowers and trees.
