This was something we had to try as soon as we reached Nadi. We had to try out for ourselves and we weren't disappointed. Loved the peaceful and serene landscape, the tropical flowers,the peace and calm.

The place is located a couple of km down an unsealed road off the Queens Highway just north of Nandi airport. The 16$ Fiji entrance fee includes a glass of fruit juice. The park is a shady, beautiful haven and well worth a visit. Total...More
