Nadi is the city located in the western part of Viti Levu – the biggest island of Fiji. It is the third biggest city when it comes to population, that counts not more than fifty thousand citizens (after adding neighbouring villages).

One of the biggest advantages of the location of the city, as well as the whole Fiji, is the fact that staying in the Equatorial area is quite encouraging no matter what is the season. Actually you can always expect temperature around 30 degrees Celsius. If we were about to indicate a specific period, it is best to go to Nadi between May and October, when it is a bit less hot, and rains less often than in other times.
Nadi is the city of many cultures, called the gate to Fiji. It is a perfect spot for getting to know habits, including, great cuisine, as well as music played live, that you can hear on every step. After sightseeing the area, you can boldly set off to further journey via this hugely fascinating country composed of more than eight hundred islands, small and bigger ones.
