According to Wholevehicles, Nadi is the third largest city in Fiji and its economy is almost entirely dependent on tourism. It is worth mentioning right away that no matter how much one would like it, almost all tourists visit Nadi at least twice. When they arrive at the local airport, and when they fly back. Perhaps someone would like to minimize the frequency of visits, but don’t be such a snob. Although there is not much to see in Nadi, it is a good starting point for trips around the island, to the Mamanuca archipelago and to the resorts of Coral Coast. Rare excursions along the rivers to remote villages also depart from here, where tourists are shown the life and customs of local tribes.
Half an hour drive from Nadi is one of the most beautiful coasts of Fiji – Natadola Beach.
