Imagine our delight when we learned that there’s a city in Fiji that also shares our name!
Nadi is Fiji’s third-largest conurbation, which is similar to a city, and it has a population of about 50,000 residents.
Located on the western side of the main island of Viti Levu, Nadi has a very mild tropical monsoon climate with average temperatures of 80° to 90° Fahrenheit all year round and a lengthy wet season for most of the year.
Sugar cane production and tourism are the backbones of its economy, and there are stunning views of sandy beaches and crystal clear ocean waters all over the island. Nadi is culturally diverse, and has a large Indian population as well as people from all over the world who came to swim or body surf and never left.
People travel from far and wide to visit the Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami, the largest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Garden of the Sleeping Giant has legendary orchids and hiking trails that attract tourists, and Denarau Island is an upscale resort with a golf course and marina. Travelers can also catch flights to nearby islands at Nadi International Airport.
We’ve added Nadi, Fiji, to our bucket list of places we look forward to visiting some day.
When that happens, we’ll be sure to bring some samples of our delicious NADI beverages to share with the Fijians who live in Nadi.
