  • Pacific Harbour Geographical Information

    Pacific Harbour sits beside a long stretch of beautiful beachfront along the coastline south of the Coral Coast, just 40 minutes from Fiji’s capital, Suva. Expansive views across the water overlook Beqa Island and Yanuca Island.

    Pacific Harbour was originally developed in the 1970’s as a residential canal subdivision, evolving into a place for holiday homes and residential units for locals and expats. The area now also attracts many tourists who come in search of adventure activities.

Try your hand at game fishing, white water river rafting or enjoy a round of golf at the 18 hole championship golf course.

    From Pacific Harbour you can surf at Yanuca Island / Frigates Passage, hike through the rainforest or soar over the rainforest canopy by zipline.

  • When to Travel to Pacific Harbour

    Diving is conducted year round in Pacific Harbour. Like all of Fiji, the climate is tropical and warm year round. There are two distinct seasons for diving. The summer months of November – April bring water temperatures in the range of 27°C - 30°C and more rain which can reduce visibility a little. The winter months of May – October bring slightly cooler water temperature in the range of 24°C - 27°C.

    The Shark Dives are also conducted year round and most species of sharks to be seen are present year round. During the months of November and December the Bull Sharks are seen less at the Shark Marine Parks as is it their mating season. June to August usually present the most Tiger Shark sightings.
