Owner description: 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.

“Not very exciting”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Found it very quiet and expensive to buy souvenirs. Needed more people around to make it fun. Even the shopkeepers looked depressed.

“Departure Point for Island Cruises”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Always a busy place, plenty of trip choices, and restaurants to eat, supermarket, and other shops. Also close to other resorts accessible by "Bula Bus".

“Tourist Prices - but a few hidden gems.”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Obviously built for tourists.. you just can sense it when walking around. Everyone tries to hawk their menus for the restaurants, won't let you walk past without shoving a menu in your face and demanding you sit down (not nice!).

This is the same in the tourist shops - they are pushy and it can make you uncomfortable.

If you're going to eat anywhere please eat at Nadina's - the only traditionally Fijian restaurant there. The staff are gorgeous and so lovely. They also have live music and kava ceremonies every half hour. It's not pricey either - so it's great for everyone.

I recommend staying away from the "western" restaurants such as Hard Rock and the shops. Go to Nadi town to get your souvenirs.

“Port of Relaxation”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

A lovely relaxed little port with a nice selection of restaurants overlooking the boat terminal, beautiful bay and scenery beyond. Watching the boats, tourists & locals going about their business with a cold Fiji beer in hand is very relaxing.
