Viti Levu is the largest island in Fiji and home to 75% of its population. From a Fijian perspective, Viti Levu is the mainland. The highest mountain in Fiji, Tomanivi, is located on the east coast, a remote place covered by mangroves and surrounded by small villages.
Nausori International Airport (Suva International Airport SUV IATA) is the secondary international airport in the country, with a smaller selection of airlines and destinations from other cities in Fiji and Oceania.
There are flights from other Fiji airports to Nadi and Suva.
By bus and carEdit
The Kings Road and Queens Road circle the Viti Levu island. With very few roads that cut across the centre of Viti Levu, Kings and Queens Roads are often the only way to get from one destination to another. Queens Road runs in western and southern part of Viti Levu while Kings Road runs in northern and eastern part of Viti Levu. Almost all of the popular destinations and major cities are along these roads.
Bus service are frequent and highly reliable within and between cities both during the day and at night. Just wave at the driver to hop on. You will need to purchase a reloadable card to tap on to get onto the bus, but this was loosely enforced as of 2019. The reloadable cards can be purchased at major bus terminals. Although there are official bus stops, you can ring the bell and the driver will stop anywhere along the route outside of the official bus stops.
