Day trip to Pacific Harbour

Hi there

Im currently living in Suva for the next couple of years and we want to go to beaches around Pacific Harbour can anyone recommend good access to beaches? Do we need to go via a resort?

At Pacific Harbour there are a few spots you can access freely without going through Uprising, The Pearl or the picnic spot that you pay with washroom facilities to access the beach area on their property .... you can walk the entire length of the beach really (same stretch).

Having lunch at Uprising or The Pearl for instance is not a bad idea especially on weekends & you can use the beach. This is very common for Suva residents.

Bula WWKLLRV,

There are a few spots here that you can access the beach. There's also a small beach on the other side of the river mouth which has less people! Be sure to pop into the Pacific Harbour Information & Booking Centre opposite the Pearl Resort for a handful of useful info and recommendations. :)

The Pearl has recently introduced an 'entry voucher' during public holidays & days there are cruise ships visiting Fiji... basically you pay FJ$30 to enter, but you are given a FJ$30 restaurant voucher to be used on food or drinks... if you plan on having lunch there anyway, then this fee is no biggie, but if you were just wanting to use their facilities/beach then it's going to cost you FJ$30... this is only on public holidays & days cruise ships are in town, all other days it's free (for now anyway, I imagine it won't take too long for this to be an everyday thing... or for other resorts to catch on & do the same)... as for accessing public beach (not through a resort), be careful. I had done this twice with friends & both times locals approached us claiming to be the land owners (they could have been, who knows) & they wanted to charge us FJ$10 per person to use the beach... easier to access through resorts... you also have the convenience of toilets, bar, restaurant etc
