It's primarily known for the world famous Shangri-La Resort & Spa that's anchored there just offshore on it's own island.
There's no real reason to stop here unless you are staying at the resort, or one of the smaller ones. The other reason worth coming is for the Coral Coast Scenic Railway attraction which gives you train rides along the coast. (refer below)
Just 11 kilometres east is Sigatoka with a few more attractions. About the same distance west and you will find Viti Levu's best beach, Natadola Beach. Horse rides are available on the beach, as is playing a round on the new Natadola Championship Golf Course. I took one look at the challenging sloping greens and decided to have a beer in the lovely open-air clubhouse instead.
The trip from Nadi will take around 50 minutes.
The premiere attraction is the railway ride, and the details can be found in our 5 Things to see in Sigatoka Fiji along with other nearby attractions.
As mentioned above, golfers wanting a good challenge or those wanting horse rides on the beach, head to Natadola down the road.
