You need a hire car to get here as its well out of town and down a gravel road. You are likely to have the place to yourself. There's not much there but the views are good.

Have tried to find Momi Gunsite on a couple of trips to Fiji and this trip we finally did locate it. It is not well sign posted from the Main Highway but well worth the trip to view the gunsite and associated small museum. The locals who look after the site are a wealth of knowledge on the history.

Though the road to Momi Battery is unsealed it isn't an issue in dry season. We really enjoyed our short tour of the battery but the view of Navula Passage and the southern Mamanucas really made it awesome. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Make sure you take the correct change for entry - FJD$5 per adult. Though there... More

I got to the Momi Battery around 4 PM only to find the gates were closed even though they are supposed to be open until 5. My only guess is that it must have been a slow day and the people running the place decided to knock off early. I was still able to see the big gun (WWI gun... More

We had a rental car, so it made it easy to visit here. Not sure how much it would have cost to take a taxi from Denaru Island. The man working while we got there gave us a great tour and was very helpful. The views are spectacular and it has a nice breeze. I wouldn't do it again since... More

This place is really good, i recently visited this attrraction and i got to say though there wasnt much to see but the scenery is soooooo beautiful. I expecially like the dark passage, the mantenance howver seems very poor since there are so many bugs. This is a very good place for excursions but there are very limited things to... More

Drove here (c30mins from Nadi), had difficulty finding it (ask your hotel), gravel road towards the end where there is a gun battery perched atop a hill overlooking Navula Passage,the crucial waterway into Viti Levu ("big Island" of Fiji) ports. Battery was built after Japanese expressed hostilities elsewhere during WW2 in case they decided to attack Fiji. Fortunately they never... More

Even if you are not interested in history, you can enjoy great views at the site. You can get there by public bus, but there are only a few buses going to the gun site per day. Still, if you want to go there, you must take Dominion bus from Nadi. I was told to take another bus company at... More

Fantastic spot to break up the Suva/nadi drive. Great view. Kids loved climbing all over the guns. Fab view of the fringing reef
