Suva Waterfront

Posted by Aruni Madara

Suva

Like most urban areas in Fiji, Suva, the capital, has a dilapidated feel and doesn't immediately seem inviting. But the country's leaders have made a point in recent months of trying to improve the waterfront promenade, an effort that's showing positive results. The horseshoe-shaped walk extends from the city to the national stadium and has become a popular place to jog and stroll. There's a new picnic area and sometimes you'll see pickup games of rugby, Fiji's national sport.

 

Along the waterfront, take a look at the botanic gardens and the Presidential Palace, where guards stand to attention wearing sandals and traditional white sulus, similar to a kilt or skirt. You can watch the guards change over every two hours. Visit the waterfront at sunset or early in the morning, when the weather is cooler, the fishermen are out, and the light plays on the water.

Opening hours: 24 hours  

Entrance fee: Free
