Although Nadi has become Fiji's third biggest city, it’s often seen as a mere stopping point for those travelling to other Fijian locales. Tourists who take the time to explore this unique location, however, will find that it has plenty of its own enchantments.
Nadi offers the stunning Wailoaloa Beach, Fiji Museum, and Arts Village. As this destination is still a relatively hidden gem, cheap flights to Nadi are easy to find throughout the year.
Best time to go to Nadi
The weather from July to September is mild, pleasantly cool, and dry. Tourists gather at this time to explore some of the beautiful outdoor sights and events, such as the Kula Eco Park and the Bula Festival in July. Although flights to Nadi are not overly expensive during this time, it is still a smart idea to book ahead, as good deals can go fast.
The shoulder season in Nadi falls from May through June, then again in October. The city sees a slight lull in tourism, making this a great time to go if you want to visit the Coral Coast Scenic Railway, hang out at the Capricorn Hotel, or explore the Nadi Garden of the Sleeping Giant in peace.
From November to April the climate in Nadi can be very rainy; however, the rain is usually followed by warm, brilliant sunlight. If you do not mind the occasional rainfall, this is an excellent time to see the Navala Village, visit the Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple, or catch a movie at the Novelty Cinema.
