The Uprising Beach Resort is nestled on the beachfront amongst tropical palms. It has a fun, relaxed and casual atmosphere where the young and young at heart come to relax, play and enjoy all that Pacific Harbour has to offer.
This 3.5 star absolute beachfront property is locally owned and managed and represents good value with an impressive range of authentic, Fijian-themed accommodation from a budget tree-house styled dormitory to well appointed, spacious deluxe villas.
With unobstructed views of Beqa Lagoon, the resort is a popular destination for divers, adventure seekers, student & volunteer groups, and weddings or for those simply seeking an “island experience with mainland convenience” that is off the beaten tourist trail.
Uprising Beach Resort is located along the Queens Highway in Pacific Harbour. Getting to the resort is easy with a number of options available. The simplest is by private transfer organised through the resort. Private taxis and public buses or minibuses are also an option. The drive from Nadi International Airport is approximately a 2.5-3 hour scenic drive along the Queens Highway and Coral Coast or a 1 hour drive from Suva (Nausori Airport) – longer by public transport!

Uprising’s prime beachfront location in Fiji’s Adventure Capital offers direct access to some of Fiji’s most sought after adventure activities. The World Famous Shark Dive located in Beqa Lagoon - the soft coral capital of the world; the award winning Rivers Fiji offering the most natural and scintillating upper river and whitewater rafting experience through the Navua River’s volcanic, water filled gorges; jet ski safaris; spearfishing and game fishing charters; zip- lining; quad bike waterfall tours; village visits; direct access to one of Fiji’s best surf breaks, the infamous Frigates Passage; paddle boarding, kayak and snorkelling tours all await you on your next Fiji visit!
Whilst there is no on-site dive centre at Uprising Beach Resort, diving in Beqa Lagoon is organised through Aqua-Trek or Beqa Adventure Divers. Both operators offer divers a surreal shark feeding experience in a safe and conservative environment where divers will witness a half-dozen or more varieties of sharks including massive bull sharks and if they’re lucky the most memorable tiger shark, whirl around in a wide circle among thousands of other fish of all sorts of varieties.
To round off your Fiji dive vacation, Beqa Lagoon’s soft coral dives provide kaleidoscopes of colour, an abundance of fish life and a number of pinnacles, caves and tunnels to explore. Set amongst the reefs are 4 purpose sunk wrecks for divers to discover which are now home to a variety of marine and coral life.
Dive courses and scuba gear hire are also offered by the dive operators.
