Ok as a stop before heading to an Island

Run of the mill resorts beach not for swimming good as a stop over before heading to an island would not recommend for a longer holiday.

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.

This beach is no white-sandy beach! It looks like a beach at a lake. The only beauty are the islands in the distance and the sunsets. Go to Sigatoka for some great beaches--Natadola is wonderful.

Probably "terrible" is a bit harsh, but in the context of being in Fiji spending time on this beach is a waste of time. Its artificial, greyish sand, no natural scenery. Get on a ferry/catamaran and you can be in some truly spectacular beaches with white sand, backed by green hills, turquoise seas, reefs - the works.

The Denarau Beach runs past all of the expensive resort hotels on Denarau Island and beyond. We stayed at the lovely Radisson Blu resort and would walk the beach. It is not a wide beach and the sand is not white at all. It is difficult to swim in many places. The water is not the crystal clear or beautiful... More
