Good job for a man made island!

The fact that denarau island is a man-made island, they made it beautiful. not the best white sandy beach but it is good. Water is so warm.

If you think you are getting the post card perfect travel brochure shots of sugar sand beaches in Fiji by coming to this beach, you will be sadly disappointed. Not trashy by any measure … the resorts make sure everything is still nice, but grey if not almost black sand is what you get here, with water that looks like... More

We drove to this beach and accessed it through a hotel. It isnt really a swimming beach, although we did swim in it, the water is calm and flat. It was worth going to and visiting!!

Just nothing like being on the islands or on the coral coast for clean water and beautiful beaches.. first thing we all noticed as a family was we couldnt see anything in the water from the kayaks, the sand is just dirty and its just not paradise... Stick to the resort for clean and beautiful waters!

If we are honest the whole denarau is just reclaimed swamp. So the beach is absolutely rubbish. Islands ( or even natandola brach) are beautiful.

Calm, pretty waters and black sand: that is Denarau beach. With all the stunning resort pools lining the beach front, and no surf, the beach's primary function seems to be aesthetic. Hit up Adrenalin Fiji if you want something to do in the water of Denarau Beach.

Get off Denarau for crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. The Hotels on Denarau are 4-5 star and great pools and if that is what you are looking for then this is for you. Lots of Golf, Water park and some great food and drinks at the marina. Lula and Cardos are the best. Make sure you take at... More

I will try to be laconic - ideal place to have a nice dinner. No crowd. Amazing ocean view. Luxury yachts all over. Seafood is outstanding.

Stayed at Raddisson Blu, loved it. All the staff were helpful in every way. Only complaint was the humidity. Made up for it by spending a lot of our time in their wide range of magnificent pools.
