Experience a lively city of colour and culture – a place of friendly faces, buzzing markets, affordable shopping, festivities, food and great Suva hotels. Suva, the Fijian capital, is located on the southeast coast of Viti Levu, occupying a natural peninsula which stretches out to the sea. Developed in the late 1800s, Suva is the commercial, political and cultural hub of Fiji. The city's character is somewhat reminiscent of its colonial heritage and its architecture is a striking blend of modern and traditional and offers many accommodation options. Choose from brightly-coloured fruit and local handicrafts at the street markets, peruse the Fiji Museum or Suva City Library, or try one of the countless eateries and duty-free shops on the popular Cumming Street. To experience Suva’s natural beauty, take a walk along the sea wall or join one of the many sightseeing tours. And don't forget a visit to Thurston Gardens, the tranquil home to a variety of exotic tropical flora.
