The archipelago of islands that compose the Republic of Fiji provide pristine scenery for your dream tropical island holiday. Just a 3-hour flight out of New Zealand or 5 hours from Hawaii, this Pacific island country is conveniently located for a stopover between the US and Australia, or as a connection to Hong Kong or Seoul. Rent a economy car in Fiji to explore Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, the main islands of Fiji, and uncover a wealth of hidden gems in their rainforests, coastlines and seas.
Located in the Melanesian sub region of Oceania, the Fiji Islands are composed of 332 islands, 110 of which are inhabited. To get to Fiji you need to fly into Nadi Airport (NAN), the main international airport or Nausori Airport (SUV) in Suva, both located on Viti Levu Island and from there hire a economy car to explore Fiji's main islands. Once a British colony, Fiji gained independence in 1970 and its multicultural society is formed of native Fijians as well as the descendants of 19th century Indian workers and immigrants from other Asian countries. Tourism is Fiji's major industry; responsible for 25% of the republic's income, and Fijian hospitality is world famous, where everybody will greet you with a loud "Bula!”
Taking your Fiji economy car hire around Viti Levu Island, you will drive on the left side of the road, as befits a former British colony. There are two main roads circling the island's coastal area - the Queen's Road and the King's Road. Nadi, Fiji's transport hub, is also the center of Fiji's Indian populace. Only a 15 minutes' drive north from Nadi, you will reach The Garden of the Sleeping Giant, an orchid garden that belonged to the holiday home of late actor Raymond Burr (of Perry Mason fame). The nearby Koroyanitu National Heritage Park offers you a chance to hike to a waterfall, or visit one of the six traditional villages in the park's area. From Nadi you can take a boat to Denarau Island, before heading to the Mamanuca islands, whose virginal sand beaches were the location of the movie Cast Away, or travel to the Yasawa Islands on a catamaran. Driving your rental economy car southwards from Nadi on the Queen's road you will pass the scenic Coral Coast. Halfway to Suva is the Beqa Lagoon, where you can dive with tiger sharks, or take a boat to Beqa Island to see traditional Fijian fire-walking. Suva is the largest city on Fiji, located on a peninsula, and a visit to the Fiji Museum and adjacent Thurston Gardens is highly recommended. Fiji's eastern shore offers you a chance to support sustainable tourism at the Natalei Eco Lodge, where you can watch a pod of dolphins swim up around Moon Reef or hike up Tova Peak.
Our economy cars can be taken from Viti Levu to Vanua Levu, Fiji's second largest island, on one of three ferry services. A direct route can be taken from Suva to Savusavu, Vanua Levu's main city. Savusavu is a popular yachting port, and the starting point of the eastern Hibiscus Highway, where you will find the remnants of colonial plantations. Heading westwards, take your Fiji economy car hire to the Namena Marine Reserve, famous for its diving and snorkeling spots. Another option is to take a ferry from Suva to Ovalau, an island between Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, where you can visit Fiji's historical capital of Levuka, a world heritage site, or travel to the crater of its dormant volcano. From Vanua Levu you can take a ferry to Taveuni, known as the Garden Island. Taveuni is mostly covered by the Bouma National Heritage Park which has three waterfalls, where you can see the exclusive habitat of the rare Tagimoucia flower, as well as being an exceptional bird watching site since no natural predators were introduced to the island. The Lau Islands, to the east, offer a chance to see undisturbed nature at its finest.
Fiji is one of the world's most desirable resort destinations, offering picture perfect beaches and rainforests. Located in the Pacific Ocean, some 1600 miles from New Zealand, a holiday in Fiji is a chance to get away from it all and relax.
