Stephen and I have taken two trips to Fiji now, and I haven’t posted about either of them. Both times we stayed at the Radisson resort on Denarau island, which is about a 20 minute drive from Nadi airport. Denarau is really more of a peninsula than an island, but they have dug a canal and built a bridge so that it technically qualifies as an island. It is home to half a dozen large fancy resorts which are along the ocean front on the west and north sides of the island. In order, they are the Worldmark timeshare resort, Radisson, Sheraton, Sheraton Villas, Westin, Sofitel & Hilton. You can walk from resort to resort around the beachfront or via the road. There is also a bus (the Bula bus) that runs around all the resorts and to the marina on the eastern side of the island. From the marina, you can get transfers out to the Mamanuca & Yasawa island (e.g. Mana Island, Plantation Island, Treasure Island etc). You can either stay at the resorts out there (more beautiful and more pricy), or you can just go for a day trip.
