Suva is the capital city of Fiji. It rests on a peninsula on the southeastern coast of Viti Levu, the largest of the Fijian islands and has been the capital city since 1883. About 100,000 people live in the city itself, with another 60,000 living in the surrounding areas, particularly along the route to Nausori Suva Airport.
Suva has a number of places of interest for the visitor and a fair number of hotels to cater for them. Among the highlights is the Fiji Museum, located in Thurston Gardens next to Albert Park. The museum is recognised as one of the best of its type in the South Pacific. Also popular is the vibrant Suva Municipal Market and the Municipal Handicraft Centre, both near the Victoria Parade along the waterfront.
Suva has 78 parks and gardens, the most important of which are Thurston Gardens and Albert Park. Many of the others, like Takashi Suzuki Garden, and Apted Park at Suva Point, line the coastline. The later is popular for watching sunsets and sunrise.
40 minutes east of Suva is the Pacific Harbour. This is not a harbour, and has no direct access to the sea. It is a purpose built resort and visitor centre complex complete with hotels, craft shops, cultural centre and artificial beach. Pacific Ocean also organizes diving, hiking, biking and other activities. Directly over the road from them is the Seventh Day Adventist camp, which may be able to offer accommodation in raised huts and is lined by a beautiful sandy beach.
