Monthly Climate Averages for Lautoka Fiji
If you are a little adventurous I suggest you make the effort to get away from the resorts and visit the villages in the countryside. Be warned 'Fiji time' is no myth, it is very much alive and well, when a Fijian informs you it is a short walk or will take no time at all, it pays to ask a little more information about the distance and what is no time to them.
Port Denarau is the jumping off point for the off-shore island resorts, so lots of day cruises to the island are on offer.
There is also the Bula bus which run between the resorts on Denarau Island, this will take you on a scenic trip around the Island. Fare is about 9 FJD for an all day pass.
A taxi into Nadi will cost about $10. Not really an attractive town but an interesting one.
It pays to compare your cruise line shore excursions here.
The Denarau Golf & Racquet Club opened on the 9th June, 1993 with a par 72, 6538-metre resort golf course.
Near the port you will find various restaurants, Hard Rock Cafe, a supermarket, bakery, hairdresser's and tour operators.

English is an official language and is the language of instruction in education, and is spoken by most in Nadi, Suva and any other major tourist area. On a few of the less touristy islands, English may be spoken with some difficulty. Fijian or Hindustani (Hindi/Urdu) is spoken by most adults and children, and learning even a few key phrases will help you gain the respect of the locals.
The shops are opened early some from 6.00am and others from 8.00am till 6.00pm to 7.00pm during the week and Saturday from 7.00am to 1.00pm. On Sundays and Public Holidays shops are generally closed but the restaurants, milk bars and other essential shops remain open.
