If you have not been to Fiji, you have not been to paradise. Yes, it is one of the most miraculous places on Earth; no, it is not a mountain and it is not in Japan. Fiji is an archipelago located in the Pacific Ocean about four hours away from New Zealand and Australia. One of Fiji’s many tourist attractions is the picturesque Natadola Harbor.
The almost isolated Natadola Harbor is located in Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu along Natadola Beach. The harbor is famous for its white-sand beach, coral reef and surf due to strong winds coming from the east northeast. The best swells have been observed to come from the south. The reef breaks are better surfs to the left than right. Both harbor and beach are often crowded during the weekends, since they are open to public access, but relatively empty any other days of the week.
The Natadola Beach is one of the best beaches in all of Fiji. That’s saying a lot since this archipelago has tons of world-class white-sand beaches and harbors. In fact, it is extremely difficult to point out which ones are the best since all Fijian beaches have unique qualities and attractions. The public Natadola Beach is known for its mile-long blinding white sands and surf. The leading resort is the Natadola Beach Resort with its 11 Mediterranean style villas.
The villas are connected to each other, providing the means for socialization if needed while offering the privacy that all vacationers are hoping for in any island vacation. The resort also has a peaceful and well landscaped pool and all suites have Queen-sized beds and good air-conditioning. Nearby are a restaurant, small boutique, and the Intercontinental Resort.
Another reason why people come to Natadola is its proximity to the Coral Coast. Fiji’s Coral Coast between Viti Levu and Vanau Levu (the country’s two largest islands) is full of sightseeing tours, large and small beaches, historical sites and cultural centers. But the coast’s most popular attractions are its rainforest and all-year supply of sunshine on one side and lush rainforest hills and soothing cloud covers on the other side.
Other attractions in Fiji are the Mamanuca Islands Day Cruise for the snorkeling sites and very friendly dolphins; Navala Village for its traditional thatched bure homes; Yasawa Beach Hopping for its uninhabited coral reefs and other islands; Bouma National Park for its waterfalls, natural reserve and amazing coasts; Navua River; exploring the exotic islands of Kadavu, Lau and Lomaiviti; Nananu-i-Ra Island; aerial sightseeing on a seaplane, helicopter or by skydiving in Nadi; learning to scuba dive in Fiji’s many first-class dive sites; and touring historical sites at the Coral Coast including the Sigatoka sand dunes and Taveuni Hill Fort.
Fiji has a lot to offer to everyone. The country never seems to run out of attractions spread all over its 322 islands and 500-plus islets. The country is one of the most popular summer destinations for thousands of vacationers from Australia and New Zealand. Definitely, most of these vacationers have seen Natadola Harbor, which is most probably in their list of must-see spots in Fiji.
