About
Only 20 minutes drive from Nadi International Airport, Port Denarau Marina is Fiji's premier marina facility. As the hub of the integrated Denarau Island Resort, Port Denarau Marina is the gateway to exploring our idyllic sun drenched tropical isles of Fiji's West Coast. Provisioning is easy - with a supermarket, pharmacy and bakery at the end of the dock and Nadi and Namaka only a short bus or taxi ride away. Port Denarau Marina is walking distance to several international hotels, offering a vast array of recreational pursuits including an international 18 hole golf course - not to mention, being part of the largest retail/restaurant complex in the Nadi area. Port Denarau is ideally positioned to provide a stopover for rest, recreation and provisioning during your cruising of the Fijian Islands. The fast developing marina complex is the centre of yachting activity in Fiji, located on Denarau Island, it is accessed through a well marked channel that is 5 metres deep at zero tide. The marina is well protected from all weather. The basin contains 52 fully serviced berths and 14 swing moorings including 14 berths capable of taking Superyachts up to 85 metres in length with 5 metres draft. Fuel, water, single and three phase power and wifi are all available at the dock. The complex contains a 50 tonne travel lift, a hard stand area and marine workshops. Port Denarau Marina is by far Fiji's newest haul out facility and provides the latest up to date equipment. See our Facilities & Services for more detailed information about what we provide.

    Nice stroll through marina
    Caught the Bula Bus from our resort direct to the marina. Ticket cost $10FJD for a day ticket which you can use multiple times on the day. Spent about two hours wandering the shops and looking at the sights. Bought a few souvenirs from Jacks to take home for family. Didn’t eat anything but plenty of food options to choose from. Loads of western style restaurants too. The marina is the main point where you depart on sea vessels to the islands. Tickets for day trips to any of the islands can be purchased here too. Definitely worth a look.

    A pleasant place to have lunch or dinner and just relax.
    A pretty and pleasant touristy port that provides a good place to moor your boat or to pick up a water based tour such as trips to the Mamanucaira island group or the Yasawa Group. In Nadi Bay the port is a lovely marina with shops , places to eat, bathrooms, auto tellers to get cash to spend elsewhere on your trips and booking offices for the tourist boats. Most of the shops here take visa or master cards as do the booking offices. Once you have shopped and eaten , embarked or disembarked there is nothing else to see there until evening when there are shows put on in the shopping arena.

    Bone Fish - Port Denarau
    Amazing meal at BoneFish seafood restaurant. I had the Seafood chowder and it was amazing. Staff were friendly and helpful and the beers were ice cold. With views over the marina, the lunch could easily have turned into dinner

    Food, shopping and day trip departure point
    If you are staying at any of the Denarau resorts, you will no doubt end up at the Port at some point. Catch the Bula Bus and explore the clothes, souvenirs, jewellery shops. Grab some supplies from the grocery story, or a meal from one of the numerous restaurants serving different cuisines. Day trips leave from the terminal.

    Simple port and shopping area
    Port with shops, restaurants, air-conditioned kids play centre and where most day trips depart from. Overall it is simple and nice. On certain evenings there are some free traditional dancing shows etc. Was within a 10-15 min easy walk from Sofitel Resort

    The main hub of Denaru
    This is where you will catch all of your ferries to the islands and also for your tours. There is a small shopping complex which has various food and beverage options which is great when leaving your resorts and looking for an alternative. There are also some smaller shops and boutiques where you can purchase clothes, souvenirs and snacks/drinks. If you’re looking at exchanging cash to FJD, this is where I would look at exchanging as the exchange rates are better than the airport ones. While we didn’t primarily stay at Denaru for our holiday in Fiji, had we stayed there, we would have gone down to the marina for some great food options rather than eating at a resort the whole time. There is a great variety of food options for all.

    Port Denarau Marina.
    By public bus it costs FJ$ 10 from Nadi city bus stand to Denarau Port. From Denarau Port tourists can board the Ferry's and private Yacht's for cruises to the Yasawa and Mamanuca group of Islands.There is a list of Islands posted on a board and approximate time to reach by boat from Denarau port. As for me was on a cruise to "Schooner Island" with "Whale's Tales" schooner from Denarau port. It was a one and half hour cruise by the beautiful schooler to Schooner Island. There is a supermarket shop within Denarau Port.

    A Picturesque Hub of Convenience
    Port Denarau Marina earns a solid 4/5 stars for its picturesque setting and convenient amenities. Situated in a stunning location, it offers easy access to various activities and attractions. The marina boasts a range of dining options and shops, catering to visitors' needs. However, occasional crowding and limited parking can be minor inconveniences. Overall, it's a bustling hub teeming with energy, perfect for soaking in the vibrant atmosphere of Fiji's coastal charm.

    Close, convenient and lots of great food!
    Great spot! Great choice of restaurants and shops to choose from. Relaxed vibe and very easy to access via The Bula Bus! It was our regular spot for lunch and dinner whilst in Fiji.

A very tourist-friendly place to stay for a week or so with a shopping circle and eateries, the Hard Rock Cafe, and many excellent inexpensive multicultural restaurants,
There are very lovely Hotels and a resort but also budget accommodation.
Then there is the Marina with the various cruises.
We stay a day at Port Denarau on a Princess Cruise and have been back twice since by Plane.

It was nice to get out of the resort and do a bit of local shopping.
Visited the pub, various local clothing and gift shops and a restaurant.
It was a relaxed atmosphere where we were able to take a leisurely stroll, shop without a time limit, enjoy a cocktail at the pub and lunch at a local restaurant.
We were enjoying holiday mode.

We first visited the Port Denarau Marina off a cruise ship and later returned to holiday in this area. We stayed at the Fiji Hilton and walked the 15-minute walk there often, or otherwise boarded the Bula Bus to get there. Lots of great boats, plus restaurants and eateries wrapped around the shores.

This is an upmarket gated area with expensive houses, a golf course and marina. You will need to pass through here to get transport to the islands. The marina complex has shops and a good variety of bars and restaurants. The car park is cheap if you are staying for up to a few hours but would get expensive beyond that. There is certainly a good vibe in the bars and restaurants.

The Marina is a good place for grocery shopping and restaurants, which are a bit pricey compared to places in Nadi. However, for many tourists from the west the prices are what we would pay at home. The Indigo restaurant has excellent Indian food

Not a real lot to see although there are a number of eateries and of course there is a Jacks shop. If you are staying on Denaru best value is alcohol and food in local shops. For example a carton of beer in our resort was $99F in the shop at the port it was $50 still cheaper even with a bula bus fare of $8F

Lovely place to wander around and explore. Plenty of places to eat or grab a drink, great views, water and wonderful boats of all kinds. A pier to walk along, ice creams and a great atmosphere.
Money change options are poor - don't rely on this one much!
Bula bus runs every 10 minutes from the 9 local resorts to the marina - EASY!
