Port of Lautoka

Lautoka is the second-largest city (after Suva) of the island nation of Fiji. Located in the west, on the island of Viti Levu, Lautoka is about half an hour's drive north of Nadi and the resort-laden Denarau Island.

A busy docking port, it is known as Sugar City, a reference to its important place in the heart of the lucrative sugarcane belt. Lautoka Sugar Mill lays claim to being the largest sugar mill in the Southern Hemisphere.

No significant sights to see, so some passengers remain on the ship

Bottom Line

Fiji’s second largest city is a little rough around the edges but offers the opportunity for souvenir shopping
