Fiji's 333 islands and atolls are the epitome of a South Pacific paradise with sunshine, palm-lined beaches and sparkling lagoons fringed with coral reefs. Situated 2100km north of Auckland, New Zealand, Fiji has become a major crossroads for both shipping and air travel across the Pacific, and boasts one of the region's best visitor infrastructures. Fiji's islands are mainly volcanic with some smaller coral or limestone atolls. Visitors to the larger islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu will experience the beauty of Fiji's rugged interior with its rivers, rainforests, waterfalls and wildlife. The country's capital, Suva is located at the south-eastern end of Viti Levu and is the nation's major port and largest city. Known for its beautiful coastline, rainforests, swaying canefields and beachfront resorts, Viti Levu is Fiji's largest island, and home to the national capital of Suva. Pacific Harbour, at the Suva end of the Coral Coast is purpose-built for visitors with luxury villas and an arts village. On the west coast of Viti Levu is the booming town of Nadi while Denarau Island forms the gateway for travel to Fiji's Mamanuca group. Viti Levu's Coral Coast, stretching from Yanuca (outside Nadi) to Naboutini near Suva is a popular resort area with a wide range of activities and accommodation. Viti Levu's suncoast, famous for its high sunshine hours, stretches from the sugar capital of Lautoka to Ba on the north-western coast. Rakiraki, on Viti Levu's northern most tip is the gateway to the islands of Nananu-i-Ra and Vanua Levu.
