fiji

Fiji is in the heart of the South Pacific, and beyond the beaches and pristine islands we are known for, is the vibrant little capital of Fiji – Suva city where the Suva Marathon takes place annually. Suva is Fiji’s commercial and political centre, and is considered a hub in this part of the world where multiple nationalities, languages and cultures converge. There are many shopping, dining and nightlife activities, and we are just 40 minutes away from the country’s adventure capital, Pacific Harbour.
