Fiji A Top Tourist Destination for 2023

With brilliant blue waters, expansive coral reefs and hundreds of peaceful islands: Fiji is not a hard sell and was listed as one of CNN’s top tourist destinations for 2023. For one, the country only reopened post-Covid at the end of 2021, meaning that visitor numbers to the South Pacific paradise have yet to fully rebound.

Cynthia Rasch, the CEO of the Port Denarau Marina, the award-winning facility in Fiji, believes the tourism market is expected to grow significantly over the next four years, and we are excited about what the future holds. In addition to having an international 18-hole golf course and being close to several international hotels, Port Denarau Marina is also a part of the biggest shopping and dining complex in the Nadi region. The marina complex is the hub of yachting activity in Fiji and is reached by a clearly designated channel that is 5 meters deep at low tide. 

The marina has excellent weather protection. The basin has 56 commercial berths, 16 swing moorings, and 56 fully serviced private berths, 20 of which can accommodate superyachts up to 85 meters in length. The dock provides internet. single-phase and three-phase power, fuel, and water. A haul-out facility with a 30-ton travel lift, a hardstand area, and marine workshops are also part of the facility. Provisioning is simple thanks to the grocery, pharmacy, and bakery at the end of the dock and the close proximity of Nadi and Namaka by bus or taxi.  

Port Denarau is perfectly situated to serve as a stopover for relaxation, entertainment, and resupply while you are traveling through the Fijian Islands. Denarau Island is about 20 minutes by car from Nadi International Airport and is the gateway to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Group of islands known for their gorgeous, sun-drenched tropical beaches off the west coast of Fiji.

While the country is spoiled for underwater beauty, there is an abundance of above-ground treasures including Levuka, a former capital and an important port, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is studded with British colonial-era buildings surrounded by coconut and mango trees. To learn about the local Indigenous communities, travellers can take part in a kava welcoming ceremony -- named for the traditional drink -- or enjoy a lovo, a meal cooked by hot coals in an underground pit covered with banana leaves. Fiji looks forward to welcoming visitors and as the Fijians say, bula!
