Welcome to Suva


Suva is a blend of many colours and cultures with colonial buildings, modern shopping plazas, abundant restaurants and bars and a harbourside esplanade. It is home to about seventy eight parks among them the new Takashi Suzuki Garden and Apted Park at Suva Point, a popular place to view the sunrise and sunset. Suva is a great place to discover the local culture through its museums and experience Fijian life through its many restaurants and exciting nightlife.

Suva is Fiji's capital, and more than half of the country's residents call it home. It is the most cosmopolitan city in Fiji, with a number of things to do and see, including the Fiji Museum, which has a large collection of historical and cultural artefacts as well as relics from the infamous HMS Bounty. The Suva Municipal Market is worth a visit on Saturdays as most of the city attends anyway, and you'll find a range of other shops, restaurants, parks and events.
