Things to do in Fiji’s Pacific Harbour region

09 Mar
The adventure capital of Fiji.

The Pacific Harbour, located on the south coast of Viti Levu about 50km west of Suva, is a long stretch of uninterrupted beach that overlooks Beqa Passage with Beqa Island and Lagoon in the distance. Resorts on this coastline are not as prolific as the Coral Coast further west and that’s part of the attraction.

Known as “the adventure capital of Fiji”, Pacific Harbour is where you can experience mild excitements to full blown adrenaline rushes through activities suitable for all ages.
