Port Denarau

Holiday Travel Guide
Port Denarau featuring general coastal views, street scenes and outdoor eating

Once the site of a mangrove swamp, this gorgeous marina is now a hub for shopping and dining as well as a point of departure for Fiji’s famous Mamanuca and Yasawa islands.

Port Denarau is the cultural and commercial centre of Denarau Island, a large resort hub located to the northwest of Viti Levu. More than just a gateway to the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands, this lovely marina is worth taking some time to explore. Sample the local cuisine, shop until you drop, and watch a traditional dance or music performance.

Take a walk through the shopping centre at the port. There you will find a range of products on offer, from crafts and jewellery to fashion and beachwear. Stop at a bakery or an ice cream parlour, or visit a restaurant to try authentic Fijian or Asian fusion cuisine. Try a Japanese-style tuna steak, choose fresh seafood marinated in coconut and lime, or opt for the Pacific favourite of curry with sweet potatoes, cassava, or taro.

Head outside to take a leisurely stroll around the port, admiring the picturesque sight of yachts and cruise ships moored in clear blue water. Book yourself in for a sailing trip around the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands on a yacht, or take a snorkeling trip to see brightly coloured fish and coral reefs. Some of Viti Levu’s more remote villages are accessible by means of a four wheel drive tour. Luxury visitors will enjoy the aerial view of Fiji’s islands from a helicopter ride.

The waterfront amphitheatre at Port Denarau is host to a wide range of interesting cultural events, as are a few of the resorts in the area. Look out for traditional performances of music and dance from Fiji or India. Art exhibitions and cooking displays also take place throughout the year. Some major festivals include the international Jazz and Blues and the South Pacific Food and Wine festivals. Check schedules locally to see what’s on while you’re in town.

Port Denarau is located on the west coast of the island. Take a taxi or public bus for a short drive from Nadi. The port is accessible from Denarau Island resorts on foot or by using the inter-resort shuttle service, and parking is available for a small fee. The shopping centre is open every day, but individual businesses’ opening times may vary. Check the website for up-to-date information about hours and event details.
