Rakiraki has surprisingly good to luxurious hotels and resorts which haven’t been tapped by the visiting hordes. As a result, peace and privacy are easy to find on a picnic for two or the family. #HideawayHolidaysThumbsUp
Check out the Volivoli Resort for couples out to celebrate the start of a new life. It’s idyllic and beautiful, with oodles of comfort, attention to detail and privacy for quality-times.
The island’s capital and heart Suva is but a cab-ride away. For those looking to feast their eyes on history and culture, there are picturesque villages a short drive away from Rakiraki itself. Do check out the old gold-mining settlements of Vatukoula!
Travelers almost always stop by Rakiraki to top up their supplies and suntan lotion before heading off to the sandy beaches. But those curious enough to stay a little while longer end up listening to stories about the Degei, the Fijian snake god and how he created the universe.
Check out the Navutu Rock in the Vitawa village, one of the oldest settlements in the Fijian archipelago. As Viti Levu’s northernmost tip, it is the King’s Road which winds its way into this quaint district. Feast your eyes on the nearby sugarcane plantations and (if those porcelain caps hold up) bite into their natural sugary sweetness.
Visitors can also hike to the tomb of Ratu Udre Udre, a Fijian chief who is said to have defeated and feasted on more than 800 victims (it was a hip thing, then!). Or Nananu-i-Ra, where Fijian believe their ancestors’ spirits point of departure. It’s a colourful town with more than a millennium of history, mythology and culture to be uncovered.
