About Port Denarau
Port Denarau is located on Denarau Island, a reclaimed mangrove swamp on the west coast of Fiji's 'mainland' the largest island known as Viti Levu.
Development of Denarau Island began in the early 1970s and it has been under construction ever since. Fiji's five-star hotel enclave includes seven international resorts (such as the Sheraton, Sofitel, Radisson Blu and Westin), along with residential villas and a championship golf course and racket club.
Port Denarau, a small-ship and dock with an adjacent yacht marina, was constructed in 2007 and is connected to Viti Levu by a short bridge only a few metres long. It is about 20 minutes south of Nadi International Airport and offers everything an embarking or disembarking passenger needs to fill a few hours: there are cafes with internet access, good restaurants, several bars, a children's play area, supermarket, post office, banks, several retail stores and even two-day spas. The port is also a good place to book day tours, as many tour operators are based there.
Apart from Captain Cook Cruises and Blue Lagoon Cruises (which are accommodated cruise vessels), the port serves as the dock for day-trip vessels that venture out to the offshore islands of Fiji's west coast -- known as the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands. Big cruise ships, such as those of P&O Australia and Princess Cruises, and those on round-the-world itineraries, anchor in nearby Nadi Bay and tender their passengers into Port Denarau.
From the port, you can take all-day and half-day sailing trips around the islands, fishing trips, snorkelling trips and land adventures, such as 4WD tours and beach excursions.
