As an international gateway for the islands of Fiji’s tourism industry, hotels are built in and around Nadi. You can take a taxi to town, and they're typically faster than taking the local bus or ferry, though public buses are reasonably priced and are a viable option.
When you arrive, the city seems to be small and quiet. Most of the restaurants and shops are in walking distance of one another. Travel to surrounding towns easily by bus, rental car or taxi.
