What to Buy in Fiji

Renowned for its wide array of locally made handicrafts, the Fiji shopping scene offers visitors meaningful mementos among the range of handmade goods on offer. Tapa cloth, woven goods, carvings and pottery are just some of the artifacts made and sold in Fiji. It is worth noting that while these unique pieces can be found in some of the larger stores, we recommend purchasing them straight from the makers in local villages and markets. This way, you leave with a more profound travel experience while simultaneously supporting the local economy.
Woven pieces such as mats, baskets, purses and fans are also popular Fiji souvenirs. Made from a reed grown locally in Vanua Levu, these products are available in Taka's Gift Shop at Copra Shed Marina. However, if you have a little extra cash to splash, why not indulge in Fiji's famous black pearls? Retailing from $400 to $4,000, these exquisite pearls are found in the waters off Savusavu Bay and make an exceptionally special travel memento.

Dos & Dont's of Shopping in Fiji

When shopping in Fiji, it's essential to know the dos and don'ts before you head out. Understanding some of the cultural norms and local etiquette can help you navigate Fiji's shopping scene seamlessly and successfully.

DO:

  • Understand the exchange rate between your home currency and the Fijian Dollar before shopping.
  • Look out for inauthentic mass-made products advertised as authentic, particularly in market stalls.
  • Visit duty-free stores at Nadi airport for bargain deals on some of your favourite brands.

DON'T:

  • Haggle. Unlike Balinese culture, haggling is not considered polite in Fijian culture, and most major stores display fixed prices.
  • Forget to explore local handicraft and flea markets. While malls offer convenience and variety, there's just something about the authenticity and atmosphere of a good Fiji market.
