Pacific Harbour is the adventure capital of Fiji. It is the place to head to when you get bored of lying under the tropical sun and palm trees sipping coconut water and instead need an adrenaline rush. The residents of Suva often go to Pacific Harbour as a weekend getaway.
Pacific Harbour is an hour's drive west from Suva's city centre along Queens Road. A similar journey from Sigatoka and Nadi takes about 80 minutes and 2.5 hours respectively. Regular bus services are available in both directions from Suva in the southeast and as far as northwest as Lautoka in the other direction.
It is easy hiring a car to explore the town and surrounds. The locals also get around by using the public bus.
