Rakiraki is roughly halfway between Nadi and Suva when driving along the north coast via Kings Road. "Rakiraki" refers to the district and the main town of the district is actually Vaileka. However, it has become commonplace to call the town Rakiraki too.
Rakiraki was declared as a township in 2010, though many in Fiji felt this was long overdue.
Rakiraki is a two-hour drive from Nadi by car or taxi.
