Suva Locality Guide: Spend Less, Do More

Welcome to Suva

Suva-Blue-Lagoon-PanoramaAs Fiji's capital, Suva is home to nearly half of the country's residents - meaning that it's full of action, no matter what you like to do!

Parks

Suva-Beach-SunsetEven though Suva gets more than 3,000 mm of rain every year, it is home to 78 of the prettiest parks you will find anywhere. One of the most popular is Suva Point. Located right on the southern tip of Fiji, Suva Point is home to a beach, quaint cottages, and some of the best sunrises and sunsets you'll ever see.

History

If you want to learn more about the country itself, head to the Fiji Museum. Inside, you'll find the most extensive collection of Fiji artefacts on earth.

While you're at the museum, tour the grounds it sits on - Thurston Gardens. As Suva's botanical gardens, Thurston Gardens offer plants and trees that you can't find anywhere else/

Nightlife and food

Suva is the place to be if you like to stay up late. Virtually all of the clubs stay open until 4.00am! Most of the good ones can be found on the western side of the city, near Victoria Parade.

If you get hungry during your late night out, there are also plenty of food stalls that can provide you with a quick snack.

If you're in Suva for New Year's Eve, you'll get to see the annual New Year's Street Party. Organised by local businesses, the party offers activities and live music for the entire family.

Hotels and Accommodation

There are plenty of hotels in Suva for people of all budgets. Like the nightlife, most of the hotels can be found on the western side of town - meaning that many of the rooms come with a waterfront view. The biggest variety lies south of Edinburgh Drive.
